When I wrote “The Right Term” 4 months ago, I had no idea it would be the beginning of a whole new chapter of self discovery in my life; and when I wrote “Couples Councelling” the month before that, I did not know that I was about to embark on a journey of emotional discovery like I never had before…
In the months following those articles, several things happened that I was just too caught up in to talk about. I graduated from Drexel University, my girlfriend broke up with me, and I finished all those books my father recommended. There was a lot to do, a lot to get used to, and a lot to get over; and in the end, this meant, there was a lot to learn.
That coupled with a shortage of inspiration and excess of self- absorption, is what eventually lead to the sudden 3 month hiatus that I took from writing these editions. But now I’m back, and as you can imagine, there is plenty to tell you.
Starting with the stuff that happened back in May, I participated in the REACH program like I usually do, and had some interesting take backs from that. I wrote an article about it then, but 1 article wasn’t enough to justify an edition so I kept it aside.
Then in June, I participated in the Drexel Senior Experience by attending a business etiquette dinner in Center City, Philadelphia. Interestingly enough, my greatest take back from that event was not etiquette, but a keen take on something I call “The Class Divide.”
Finally in July, the break up happened and I was too depressed to write anything for a while. Now we’re in September, and I’m finally feeling like writing again. But in the spirit of “waste nothing, want nothing” I am including all my previous articles for you to read. Forgive me, if they sound a little out of place, but keep in mind that they were written in prior months.
