No Days Off

It all went dark. I was sitting in Bouillon, meeting with Professor Jennifer Green discussing my portfolio, a requirement for me to graduate. Then everything goes black. There I am, sitting in total confusion for a brief moment thinking someone had turned out the lights. One minute I’m showcasing all the work I’ve completed at…

School is in Session

It’s safe to say that most people feel that it’s the job of a school to educate and help make their students the most well rounded citizens they can. Besides our families, schools and the education we receive there will shape us immensely. A few weeks ago I was tasked with joining the Agency team…

Comey: The Man Everyone Loves to Hate

It’s safe to say that now isn’t a good time to FBI Director James Comey.

East Coast Culture Shock

You don’t have to travel outside of the United States to get culture shock. I got it just last week on a trip to NYC. As a California native, and as someone who has spent the last few years of my life in Washington state, I’m used to a rather laid-back, polite, easy-going lifestyle. And…
