    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 busy Saint? Never heard of such before…

My friends and I were constantly crying out loud for not having enough time to hang out or be ‘ourselves’ last semester and the one before that. We always exclaimed how we were all busy, but I think I have found a proper reason, it was because we just had lots of things to do. We were all involved in clubs and various organizations on campus, worked 10 hours or more while classes were in full swing, attended classes and did assignments almost every single day. This is not to mention activities such as intramural sports or volunteering and working on projects.

Most of us, especially me, desire a me-time, where we get to work on improving and enriching ourselves through reading, listening to music while basking in the sun, anything really that can help to re-center ourselves. Unfortunately, it is almost hard, yet possible, to pick up a novel and read during the semester or do a fun project outside of school.

One of my goals next semester is to remember to remember that I need to pay attention to myself more and focus on that which matters most to me. You might probably use the same advice too, dear reader, and find ways to re-position yourself especially in the midst of hectic and overwhelming schedules such as those that are the norm at CSS during the semester!
