Inching toward the finish line…..

Today is my last day of classes for the fall 2013 semester. Where has the time gone?? I begin my final semester next month. Did I really just type that?  I remember my first day of school in fall 2011. I went to a writing class that is required for communications majors, after attending a [...]

It’s amazing what brings me back…..
