Like everyone else as a child, dreams kept me going. Dreams kept me motivated to stay in school, get good grades and all that stuff we’re all supposed to strive for because it’s the appropriate course of action.

Everyday NhanSense – Day 5

——————————————————————————————————————————————– Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth. Day 5’s Topic: Heroes and villains. ——————————————————————————————————————————————– I have always loved superhero stuff, ever since I was a kid.
