Dear First Semester

Dear First Semester, Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have spent the past week writing and re-writing this Sunday’s letter as “Dear Finals Week,” but I was getting NOWHERE.  So last night at about 11:56 it hit me.  The reason I can’t find the words to write is because this is not what I am supposed to be writing. …

Dear Sweet Sixteen

Dear Sweet Sixteen, You are something special!
