Katherine Daniel ~ Editor in Chief

     Thanksgiving Break is over, and I have been in the stage of what we call, senioritis. Over the break, I said to myself “Oh, I am going to get my senior thesis paper done and this website, and be ahead of things.” Did that happen? Nope!

I am grateful for making money over break and going shopping, do not get me wrong, but I really wanted to get the stuff done. But it is okay, I will work hard this week on it and get it done. To get me through the next three weeks left, I have thought of some things to do to keep me in the spirit to get things done.

     Sadhu Vaswani is attributed with saying, “Love is selfless. It is prepared to sacrifice.” With the way the Internet can be, I am not sure if he truly said that, but I do believe these words are true. In Hallmark movies and the like, love is portrayed as a beautiful, easy thing. Love is beautiful, but I have never known it to be easy. Truly loving someone changes you completely.
