As I approach the end of college, I am happy to present my future work and goals in this blog. My goal in life is to work for myself, or at least be happy with what I do.

I’ll miss my roommates, the kitties, and my neighborhood. West Philly is awesome, it has so much (various grocery stores, beer stores, Halal spots, pizza shops, etc). I need to stop reminding myself, I’ve been peeling off this band-aid slowly and painfully.
