Long time no see, folks! From finishing my I.S. to starting my job search, it has been a busy time. To catch you up, I thought I’d give you a visual guide of the past few months! As you can see, we’ve had a lot going on here at Hanover. To those who might think,…

My Break in Pictures… Instead of 1000 Words

As I’ve spent the majority of my Thanksgiving “break” at home typing furiously away at my Independent Study, I thought I’d give you a synopsis of my break in pictures!

Letters From Yesterday

With only weeks left to go before I headed to college for the first time, my room was in shambles, my house was full of boxes and even my car showed the unmistakable signs of my upcoming migration. Everything was changing. Nothing felt the same. As such, I wrote a letter to many of my…
