I have been residing in Westmont in my single bed apartment for about seven months now. I finally feel like I am settling in and getting the lay of the land. There is a beautiful “lake” behind my apartment building. I put it in quotes because it’s more like a glorified pond, but I guess there’s… Continue reading Just Another Chapter (life update)
This was the last message/update I had sent out to some friends and family before I created this blog. I wrote it shortly after the Summer Olympics of 16’ and with the Winter Olympics heating up, I thought it was relevant to share (since it’s partly about my “experience” at the summer olympics).… Continue reading A “Blast” from the Past
