By: Gabriela Yareliz If I could choose one word to describe myself, it would be curious. I like learning and trying new things (even when I immediately regret it afterward).

Monday Inspiration: July 6, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Happy Monday. I know I am late in like every time zone. Anyway. A new week has begun. Those of us in our study caves are glancing up from our kerosene lamps and books at our quickly fading calendar countdown for the big exam.
