Penny Experiment

Each time that I sit down to write an article, I never really know how it will turn out or whether it will be published. That sense of unknowing always takes me back to junior high school when I was always convinced that my papers just wouldn’t measure up to expectation.

Sometimes the best thing you can do for others is take care of yourself and not be a burden.
