    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

International Students Advice: Before the long trip

I remember the month before I would begin college that time flew by pretty fast. It was too short a time to say farewell to all my friends and family especially since I would be moving away to a place over 8000 miles away and where I knew only a few people. At the time I did not pay that much attention to what I would miss when I was gone to college. By what, I mean the places. With people, you can reconnect even from afar – thanks to social media and long distance calls, but with places its different.

Before I made the long trek to Duluth, I wish I had visited some of the cool places and some other places such as those where I had had memorable moments and experiences. This often leads to one missing home but the sensation is fulfilling in that it makes one even more prouder of their roots.

Before you make the trip this month (already!!) to CSS, do not just spend time with your loved ones, also take time to visit and be at the places you love the most. Of course take pictures to remember it and share with friends in the US or home who want to see what your country or home looks like.
