​As you no doubt already know, writing can be either personal or impersonal. But did you know that it is always communicating information about your real self? And as such it is more than the mechanical means of sharing one's thoughts, it is also a way to telegraph the hidden depth of your personality. Perhaps for this reason, we are deeply enamore...

On top of my academic commitments, my sorority had asked if I could set aside a day to take photos for the graduating seniors, as some of them were unable to pay for a professional photographer for the ...
