    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..

The Last Mile

Friends, readers, distinguished blog visitors… welcome to  // no intentions of making this a speech, so I will jump right in to what I want to say:

It’s the final leg of my undergraduate career!

January 14, 2019 marks the beginning of the end. May 12 (Commencement) marks the end of the beginning. Enough gibberish, I am excited and overwhelmed to have made it this far. It hasn’t been easy nor did I expect it would be. This semester, however, I planned to make it as easy as possible. Here’s whats up:

  1. I have five classes BUT BUT it’s 13 credits total. Hopefully this translates to less work, because I have been taking roughly 18 credits each semester.
  2. I sadly resigned from my job at the IT Help Desk last semester. Though I enjoyed working with my team and all, I had to cut down on some pressure for my own sake. This semester, I have less stressful work and moderately more fun coming up at my other two jobs on campus and yes, in general.
  3. I picked up reading following the sad event in #2! And I haven’t stopped. So aluta continua.
  4. A few other things I will not divulge at the moment, but all for the good and able to make this semester the best and most fun one yet!

A lot of changes have occured since I started college. I have grown and become more “Ent-ish”, quoting Fangorn (Treebeard) from The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien. This semester, it looks like there won’t be any need to be hasty, though this will be difficult, and I look forward to spending some time with friends, old and new.
