I walked into fourth grade on Groundhog Day of 2009, the first time I attended school in the United States. Unfamiliar with the three-story building, I waited in front of the main office until a student was sent to escort me to the classroom. The teacher explained to me that every Monday, the day began with language arts journal time. On that particular day, the journal prompt read “Write about an animal that could replace groundhogs on Groundhog Day."  There were...

My Favorite Coffees I wake up every weekday with a large cup of café negro. Though café negro is not my favorite, rushed mornings, late nights and rainy days are not complete without it.
