- Homework! Oh, Homework!
I hate you! You stink!
I wish I could wash you
away in the sink,
if only a bomb
would explode you to bits.
Homework! Oh, homework!
You're giving me fits.
I'd rather take baths
with a man-eating shark,
or wrestle a lion
alone in the dark,
eat spinach and liver,
pet ten porcupines,
than tackle the homework,
my teacher assigns.
Homework! Oh, homework!

Up until now, I don't think Thanksgiving has ever had a true meaning to me. Every year it entailed the same kind of thing: delicious food and a few days off from school.

I like food. I like the texture, the smell, but most of all, I like the variety. I like to try new things and especially new restaurants. Being at a school with a student kitchen and being on a campus with a massive number of eateries ensures that we have limitless dining options.

Something that I think everyone needs is a hobby. Nothing beats a stressful day at Uni like taking part in something that you enjoy. Whether you like playing sports or video games, reading, knitting, or even collecting stamps, all are good ways to relieve some stress and anger.

So here is a list of very memorable Wills from my childhood:

I have never been a huge fan of country music. When Taylor Swift came onto the scene, I just saw another country music singer. Not worth my time.
But somehow she seems to be creeping into more and more of my conversations, and I see her more and more on TV.
First I heard little blurbs about her:

For the past few days, I've been college visiting in Boston. Being a big city and all, there were no shortages things to do and places to see.

William is a very powerful name.
It came from the Germanic roots Wil, meaning "will or desire", and Helm, meaning "helmet, protection." Hence a person named William is a determined protector, someone who will give up at nothing to protect what he has set out to keep safe.

One of my many current blog obsessions is "Stuff White People Like." This is by far the most engaging blog I've encountered, and it strays far from my normal read.

You probably expected to see a 9/11 memorial rise from "Ground Zero." Perhaps a symbolic statue or a new building would stand in that spot, to symbolize our resilience in the face of terrorism. However, a memorial to the World Trade Center was unveiled today … in New York Harbor.
