One of the things that I’m really excited about this semester at CSULB is that I have the opportunity of being a Teaching Assistant for one of my favorite professors and classes that I took Fall 2012, Classical Sociological Theories.

I realize I’ve been, once again, thoroughly inconsistent with my writing/posting so I’m trying something new. I’ve decided that Thursday evenings will be my writing day.

Things Happen For A Reason

Sometimes what you believe you want most in life is not always what you need. Today I received an acceptance letter from CSU-Fullerton for Fall 2011. I remember how happy I was when I received that same letter last year for Fall 2010 and how surreal it felt to me that I’d finally be attending… Continue reading Things Happen For A Reason
