My {Self} Love Life

Content. Half of the semester is over. Course schedules for spring 2019 are out. My life has been moving incredibly fast, but I feel so content. Last year around this time I was absolutely miserable.

When You Have a LinkedIn Crush

Friends, how have you been? I haven’t stopped by in a while, but with school, professional commitments, and life — time keeps on fleeting and I barely have time to breathe.
