Lots of work drama this week but I refuse to let it make me feel anxious or guilty even for tonight. I have worked so hard to come this far and there is no reason that anyone, even my adviser, can take that from me. And it is not going to poiso... Read more

I hope this is ok; I copied and pasted my response to a thread on another site. The topic was "things that make you really happy."
Working out...especially running. I love exploring new places, but I also love running near my parents' place... Read more
