    because she did not have failures or doubts. But because she continued on despite them!

    I've Become More Determined

    This whole year I've busted my ***. But this semester I started working on a technical paper and it made me lose focus on everything else. In the end I didn't even submit the paper because some of the data wasn't so good and kind of contradicted some parts of my claim. Sucked. My...

    Following Through

    I have a special place in my heart for those that stick with things. Those that don't give up and let anything(or anyone)keep them from completing what they aim for. When things don't go as planned they continue on their path and don't except defeat. Gotta love that quality!
