A couple of months ago I was cleaning out my cabinets stuffed with old magazines. Sifting through tons of old editorials a few issues caught my attention that I decided to keep. One of them was a BusinessWeek issue from January 23, 2006. That's right, that was 7 years ago!
The cover story claims that, "More math geeks are calling the shots in business."
The weather this winter in Houston has been unpredictable! It's hot one day, it's cold the next! Sometimes the weather can change drastically in one day!

Two years ago, August 20th 2010 I went in for my first surgery - an eye surgery.
My vision started getting bad when I started school in first grade. In second grade I was already wearing glasses. The genes in my family do not help either, everybody in my family wears glasses.

This weekend I came back from vacation, which I spent camping in Panama City Beach, Florida.
I like to go camping because we barely spend any time inside anyways; the campsite has showers, and we only need the tent to sleep in. During the day we are usually at the beach, walking down the front beach road, playing mini golf, or doing other activities.
