I’m sure most people long to visit places on their ‘bucket list.’ I traveled to many places here... Read more »

I have a love/hate relationship with snow. At first I was ecstatic about getting out of school for a day (I know, I’m a bad kid). I was happy we didn’t go to school on Friday because I kind of needed to play catch-up with my schoolwork. Throughout the day I kept thinking, “it’ll melt by the... Read more »

Being single is cool, I guess, but the most depressing day for a single person is Valentine’s Day.
