On Following Your Heart and Not Your Education System

This comic and blog post on zenpencils.com started out on the On My Radar post for Week 3. However, as I started talking about it, I found a bit of passion that I hadn't been able to express in writing, and it became a bit long for an On My Radar post. So, I decided to give… Continue reading On Following Your Heart and Not Your Education System

I know people with who believe that listening to other opinions is akin to poison, but I've never understood why.… Continue reading Why Do Opinions Matter?

Thoughts on Graduation

Graduation is what every student looks forward to, right? It's where students stop their formal education and begin on the journey towards "real adulthood." Well, in my case (and in the case of some of my fellow seniors), graduation has terrified us. We aren't afraid of going into the "real world"; we're afraid of stopping… Continue reading Thoughts on Graduation

The Promises of Chaos Theory

Since I am about to graduate from university, I have been thinking about my future career path quite a bit. During my capstone course, we were able to read a couple of chapters from Katherine Brooks book, You Majored in What?
