Well, it’s midterm season.  It’s hard to believe I’ve been in college for almost two months now (or that I’ll be coming home for Christmas in another two).   Fortunately for me, only one of my classes has an actual midterm exam, and that’s done.  On the other hand, I have three presentations due in the…

Passport to the Future

Education is the passport to the future, and three weeks into Arabic, I’m learning a lot and excited for that future.
