And so it… begins?

#yeeee #pta #timetofindajob A post shared by D e R e K (EHL) a u (@drkehl) on Oct 13, 2016 at 3:21pm PDT It all sorta started back at the end of August 2014, where I received a 6am phone call in Taiwan from school informing me of my acceptance. First day of class was roughly…

c/o 2016.

In all honestly, I feel like this is coming and going with very little fanfare. I guess that’s a holdover from the last time I graduated from UCLA (B.S.

Who the hell makes a test of 40 questions based on 500+ slides of powerpoints? Goddamn. And from the previous tests she’s given, we (as a class) have all done poorly on them. Because we were both misdirected int what to study for (and then she goes, didn’t you guys study? Uh, yeah, we did,…
