A Reflection of the Past Year

I've been thinking a lot about how much has changed in a year. Specifically, how much I've changed in a year. I remember how ridiculously petty and immature I acted, and how tremendously annoying I was at that time. I think about how I was so deeply unsatisfied in different parts of my life, and…

My Attempts at Making A Difference (Experiences in Non-profit Work)
