There are days when you might wake up in the morning, look outside and see sleet pouring down your window, groan and get out of bed, then experience a heck of a walk to class, and possibly receive really bad news (or a bad test score). Or maybe you might wake up and see a beautiful sunny sky and spend the day tossing a Frisbee with your friends on Poe Field. Or have you ever experienced a bad day that turned into a good one? A life-changing experience or just a silly thought that made you laugh for hours? Maybe you lost someone important, or gained new friendships. This past year has been a lot to take in the good and the bad, the ups and the downs. We’ve all been there in our own way:
