Reflection.

I learned a lot of shit when I was 18 and each lesson will make me a stronger 19 year old. It's an incredibly long list, so here are a few important ones:

> I learned to stay well away from greed. I was on informal probation for the whole year because of greed. SMH

> I learned that it is imperative to never burn your bridges. Always remember the ones who once held a spot in your heart, no matter how big or small that spot was.

> The bigger you dream....Life just seems easier when you keep focus on all your dreams.

> Don't choose a career just for the money or the small amount of school time. Follow your true passions. Create your own path.

> Smile as if you were insane. Smile for no reason. Smile when you're down. Encourage others to smile for no reason. Encourage others to smile when they're down.

> Use a defense with 3 safeties and 3 linebackers when playing against Davon in Madden.

> Beauty is not physical.



This was one of my most memorable nights.


There are many reasons why I chose to become a Pharmacist. My mother almost had cancer and my father is still recovering from prostate cancer. This is Simon, a friend who I keep close to my heart. When I found out that he has a cancer, it infuriated me even more. I can't tell you how much I HATE cancer. I use this anger as motivation to study cancer and work in the research field. I strongly believe the cure will be found in our lifetime. I might mess and find that shit.



"If the game shakes me or breaks me, I hope it makes me a better man. Take a
better stand. Put money in my moms hand...Stay far from timid. Only make moves when your heart's in it And live the phrase "Sky's The Limit"
-Biggie
