    I've struggled with one assignment over the

    past few weeks tremendously. I've been breaking down. I prayed to God to help me get through this and I ended watching the devil wears prada. I think I'm good right now. I'll find out tomorrow. I wish it all goes well. Wish me luck, I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
