The other day, I asked my friends (from YK) if they were available this Saturday to hang out. Joshua and Maria were free, but Ciaralyn (of course) was not. She had work.

After a long awaited meeting, I was greeted by a grinning Nikki, a smiling Fariha, and a weird Nathaniel (LOL JK) at Java Joes, each of which comprises the Calc-Heads. We were just missing Rhea and Tommy. Our meeting/reunion was set for a hike in Saipan, one that I have been looking forward to for ages: Old Man by the Sea.

On the 25th of May, 2017, I officially checked out of my dorm, marking my new status as a second year college student. This official … Continue reading Exploring Oregon
