    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..

3 Weeks in…

A typical semester is 16 weeks long. To think that I have already burned 3 of those 16 weeks makes my heart palpitate.


Like I mentioned in one of the first posts of the semester, I have 5 classes on my plate and I also enrolled in the Ethical Leadership MOOC. I can pretty much say I am all booked! I am doing an independent study with one of my professors and will be presenting this at the end of the semester!


I work 20 hours each week, at the IT Help Desk and as a Web Assistant. Most of my work hours are during the week and this makes life more interesting as at any given moment during the weekday, I am in class or at work or preparing for either one!


I am helping organize an event with the School of Business and Technology for later this semester in addition to volunteering and teaching kids at Lincoln Park Middle School once a week. The Computer Club has pretty much died down and I hope we will revive it soon! Good thing the Math Club is still standing!

The Reflection

I have been struggling to stay on top of things lately. My involvement in a number of activities is draining and I ma still looking for ways to get back to a normal schedule. Unfortunately, this means giving up on some interesting projects, or events! Going forward, I will be dedicating more time and attention to myself and to my school work (the reason for being here). Will see how this goes, but it would be great to be ahead and on par with my classwork and having opportunities to work on more challenges and exercises.
