This is It

No, it’s not the movie about Michael Jackson. I can’t believe this is my last quarter here at Kellogg. These two years flew by in a blink of an eye. It is true when they say time flies when you are having a good time. Graduation is in 2 months! This is definitely a bittersweet… Continue reading
