Midyear mess: Housing headaches

You may be surprised to hear that I am not unhappy being a midyear. I know that it has been discussed many times, but as a receiver of the midyear acceptance letter, I can’t emphasize the confusion and insecurity that follows its delivery. I spent the many months separating my acceptance to the university and […]

A recent conversation with a friend got me thinking about intelligence. We were discussing neuroscience when she told me that she’s not very good at it. This confused me. I know that neuroscience is an intense subject to study, but my friend is intelligent and does well in her classes. Yet she described herself as […]

A simple example would be two cars driving down a single-lane road. As they approach each other, both sides try to get the other to move to […]
