DISCLAIMER: This post is going to be an organized rant. The first day of Shout Out I was asked, why are you here? Why did you decide to apply and be a part of this class? As the quirky person I am I said something silly, but it was not the real reason. I entered this […]Read More Through Unseen Eyes

Of course, many people my age […]Read More If you get married, will you take his last name? #AskWhy
