2013 is almost here!

As 2012 is walking out the door, 2013 is coming right in. Although 2012, was filled with many good times and will forever hold great memories, the promise of a new year is always very exciting. I hope that 2013 is filled with more cheer and good times than 2012.

First Week of Classes

The Fall semester is finally here! While summer was fun, this new semester seems to hold a lot in store. I was feeling slightly overwhelmed by the amount of things I had happening my first few days but it seems that I'm adjusting to this new academic year very well. I think I am most excited about my philosophy course because it is taking the theoretical into practice. An interesting idea for a subject area that most deem to be purely theoretical.
