Spring semester of my sophomore year at American University when I signed up for classes I figured that my fall semester was looking to be fairly easy and I would have ample free time.

During the past summer, I had the opportunity to intern for Bloomberg BNA, which I found through the help of an American University professor, and I took a job as a Resident Assistant on campus as a way to give back to the community and hopefully shape it for the better. I had two days without class planned, and things were looking quite nice.
