Hey oh! School is back in session! I don't mean that like I am going to be schooling you, but rather literally school has started again. Yesterday was the first day of my last fall semester in college. I can hardly believe that fact. It feels like just a few days ago I was graduating from Joplin High School and a tornado had just ripped through my hometown. It really is true what people say about timing pasting faster as you get older.

Despite all the nostalgia I am very much looking forward to the year ahead and for the many large life events that are approaching such as graduating college, getting married, operating my own business, and potentially being accepted into a graduate degree program.

However this exciting semester had kind of a bumpy beginning.
