The Last Post

I suppose it would be more apropos to write my final blog post for insideColby on the day of graduation. However, final pay entries are tonight, so as Weezy says, I guess I have to let money talk for me*. … Continue reading

The Last Exam

Finishing my last exam was nothing like I could have ever expected. Years of blood, sweat and tears. Minutes of anticipation. Gallons of coffee. Tens of rented Macbook chargers. Alas, there was no sigh of relief or lifting of weight … Continue reading
