    Ari's Bio:
    I was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I came to the U.S when I was adopted at the age of six months, and have remained here ever since. A key characteristic in my personality is my love of being social. I am extremely outgoing and energetic and I love to stay active. One of my more expensive, but definitely most enjoyable, hobbies is traveling. I believe everything happens for a reason and a quote by Henry David Thoreau says it best: Never look back unless you are planning to go that way. Live Large And Love Life.

There’s A First For Everything..

Today I got an exam score back for one of my classes. I didn’t think the exam was too difficult and I studied for at least four hours. Apparently, that wasn’t enough because I got a D. Never in my life have I done even worse than a B. I was so shocked and frustrated that I irrationally thought of dropping out of college completely. After coming back to reality.. I remembered something my Chemistry professor told our class. After the first exam in his class some people were feeling frustrated with the grade. So, he showed us a picture of a Chemistry exam he took in college. He got a 14%… More than half of the exam was true and false so he had a 50% chance of getting each one right and he failed. He is now a 10-year Professor with a PhD in Chemistry. Now, everytime I do horribly on something I remember that one of the smartest men that teaches in this college failed a test once.
