    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..

Unbelievable, this is week 3 of 16!!! It feels as if it was just yesterday when I had my first last day of classes as an undergrad. I have been quite productive and yet not sufficiently so (long story :lol:). I have two major classes going on and a research that I am doing under the guidance of Dr Gibbons, CIS faculty! I will have two more classes starting in 5 weeks and need to start bracing myself for that and doing my best with my current coursework.

As week 3 comes to an end, I am thankful for all the good things that have happened so far, especially the outrageous amount of time I have to wind down after a long day and the opportunity to talk more with and visit friends. I have often been in situations in which I stuck to the grind from early during the day all the way to midnight and hit repeat the following day. I did not have time to sit down and have hour long conversations or read a book even (not a textbook, smh). I have also been working a lot on defining myself more, figuring out what works and what I can do to make other things work, etc. So far, I have made good progress in all areas and I can only think of one word: happier!

The next weeks will spell some defining moments in my life. As graduation looms, I have some grown up decisions to make and situations to navigate  😀 Hoping for the best outcomes!
