The new year creates an opportunity for self-examination and growth. For many this means creating New Year’s resolutions. The spirit of self-improvement is celebrated, but the results show the lofty goals people set for themselves are rarely achieved. To change one’s life, small steps need to...

When I came to the Evergreen, I had no idea what I was supposed to do. Coming into college, in fact, I had no idea how I would spend my time here. Even as I write this letter, I haven’t the slightest idea of how to continue it on past this paragraph. Yet you’re still reading this small spiel...
