The first ever off-campus club activity in a very long whilee

Today's activity, I think, was similar in … Continue reading The first ever off-campus club activity in a very long whilee

This reminds me of my high school years. Even now, to be honest, I really miss my high school years, especially the long residential trips that I was guaranteed a spot on virtually all the time.
