    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..

A 50th Blogiversary: Hold on we’re going home…

While I am celebrating the end of the semester, I bemoan the fact that I won’t be going home to Zimbabwe. During winter break, students can stay on campus for free which I think is really cool. However, I am blessed to have been invited for a break away from school in Forest Lake and I am looking forward to this sweet escape from studies and all. It is quite surprising too that the semester has come to an end and I am halfway through my first year already. Time flies!

I will be writing a series of reflection posts, once the exam and projects coast is clear of course! At this moment, there seems to be just a lot of work that need to be done and the almost everyone is under pressure these final days. Stay strong! All students are being asked to fill out a reflection survey on how they learned and interacted with professors this semester. This feedback is used to improve the teaching standards and to introduce new ways of teaching. Student views are always prioritized which is a good thing often times.

This post also marks my 50th blogiversary, that is, I have reached 50 posts so far and although this seems just a little, I feel it is a great achievement as I had to continuously fight off writers block and keep on committing pen to paper. I sincerely hope that in sharing my experiences, I learn more about that which matters to me and also help others look at college from another perspective.
