A Letter To My Most Difficult Lecturer

All the excitement I had for my university education waned after I sat in your first class. I kept wondering if I was in the right place.

A Letter To My Dad

As a child, I dreamt of speaking English like you. I wanted to pray in tongues like you. I wanted to have enough money like you. You were the richest man I knew in real life. You were my star. I looked up to you in many ways. We had a connection. More like telepathy. We could feel each other from far away. I always looked forward to seeing you. I put up my be[...]
