Recently, I watched a charming Dianna Agron (Glee) interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. She was refreshingly poised and humble, especially when she told her tale of hanging out with Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow in the bathroom.

I was unable to follow the Mon-Wed-Fri schedule for the blog this week and missed Wednesday. I hope you are not too upset by my unpredictability as you drink a vat of steaming fresh coffee and tackle that pesky homework assignment. Most people love the security and comfort of a routine, and though they won’t admit it, many students find their school classrooms comforting. It gives them a sense of normalcy. Yet some students seek to learn outside of the classroom and gain hands-on experience. This need may not be satisfied simply by joining clubs… Continue Reading
