College is the first time I have been around people who are extremely outspoken and aware of what is going on socially and politically. It made me realize how important it is to have a voice in order to effect change. I have joined the University’s Annual Christmas Lantern Parade for the first time a couple of weeks ago and the experience was surreal! I felt like I was taking charge of my life! After that, I jammed with my friends. My guitar got a dent though and had to get it fixed. Next time, to protect your guitar, you really should be putting it in a sturdy guitar case.
