365 Days After Graduation: A Letter to the Class of 2020

It’s miraculous how another 365 days has managed to defy my awareness again. Just like that, it’s been a year since I graduated from college. There have been just a few small changes since then…

For starters, I traveled to 2 new continents (Australia and Asia) and 5 new countries (New Zealand, Australia, India, Thailand, Cambodia) and made a pit stop in England along the way.

I do this thing at the beginning of every semester where I think my abilities to conquer anything and everything are paralleled to that of a superhero.
