And that’s a wrap…

Written by    May 10, 2016

Even though I have already spent an entire week at home, it still doesn’t seem possible that my freshman year at Ohio State is over. As I reflect on the pairs of shoes I broke, ruined, or lost, and all of the firsts that became seconds, thirds, and thirty sevenths, I can’t believe how fast this year went by. On the first day of my senior […]
