Adios Seville – Back to the Real World

It’s cold in Boston. And I don’t just mean with the weather. Saying goodbye is never easy, especially when you develop a bond with people who are more than just co-workers. Although I’m excited to be back at school, the past few months in G-Lab have been a great ride … Read more
