    Artistic Ambition


    I wouldn’t consider myself a highly ambitious person. This sounds like it should have a negative connotation, but in all honesty, not a lot of thing can hold my interest long enough for me to feel passionate about them. Again, not the most bright and shiny statement, but it is …

    Finals week is upon students, and that is always a really stressful time! I just want to take a second to remind everyone to work hard, but to not overwork yourself!
