Fresh Snow Silence

Witnessing a snowy Sunday on a University campus is unlike anything else. Everything is peaceful and quiet; nothing around besides the occasional snowplow. The joy of a snowy day comes with how we experience it. While we might be sharply in tune with the bitter cold, it is so easy to lose ourselves in the beauty of the world around us; something that may only become apparent with a fresh snow.

About Me

My photo
I am a sophomore in college, studying Biochemistry and math, but I am a pilgrim for knowledge. I seek neither greatness nor acknowledgment, but rather to experience and understand the complex world of ours. My desire for this experiential journey of mine is to gain knowledge and wisdom and, more importantly, to form strong bonds of friendship with the individuals around me. This journey began in December of 2008, when a friend of mine died at the age of 17. In his short life, he had changed lives in ways that I never have done. I was struck by the beauty of the life that had been lost, and I made a promise that day to reach out to people around me; to live a life not wasted. My eyes were opened. My life was changed. My journey had begun.
