Good Bye 2014

It has been a very good year.

First Full Day Off

I’m sitting here writing this on my first full day off from what was the most challenging semester of my four semesters attending CVCC.  I honestly did not think that I would be able to get all A’s this semester given the courses I was taking (Portraiture being the key course), the course load (16 […]
