    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..

Is everything going well?

I guess so, maybe not as well as I would like but… wait, let me mull over this for a while.

It’s been almost a month into my second year of college, and I am starting to feel that strange conglomeration of emotions that often comes around when some things are about to change. In less than a month, week, day, and hour, my emotions have been of excitement because of the endless possibilities a new academic year brings, stress because of the mental strain those endless possibilities bring, joy for having brand new starts with people who are brand new in my life, nostalgia for brilliant futures past, and much more.

My mind hops around from present to future and all the way back to the past before retracing that step, like an infinite loop. I usually blame the change in weather and point out how demanding the classes I am taking are or how I just can’t bring myself to have fun and live ‘in a normal’ manner without jeopardizing my grades or performance. Somehow, in this abyss of misery. light still penetrates through in the form of hope and resilience. There are those rare moments when something small but lasting just happens, perhaps as a force of nature, and that alone suffices to brighten my day. Of course,life is not all rosy. We are bound to go through tough situations and if we are like diamonds, we might emerge much stronger, brighter, beautiful and valuable.

So, dear reader, keep on keeping on and do not be guilty for all the right things you did not do. Do right for you and for those in your community and before you know it, there will be right everywhere.
