After writing essay after essay, I have notice that I have come to better grips with what kind of person I am. It's been quite an experience of self-realization.

It's a great introspective exercise. I know I've never written anything similar to these essays before. All right,nough scholarly crap, I'm gonna grab a beer. 18 Secondaries complete!!!
