Winter Quarter 2017: A Shooting Star that Burnt a Little too Bright at Times

Winter quarter felt like I took a long hike through a beautiful trail with fantastic weather that somehow managed to lead me to a series of obstacles like a roaring river or some random bottomless pit I somehow managed to cross.
