No Yashvi today, it’s me again. It’s a topic I found she’d written but never used. If I were to go back to the third standard as myself, an eighteen-year-old, what would it be like? I can’t imagine how friendships would work – students of the third standard, exactly ten years younger than me, would … More Going Back to Third Grade.
I’m almost two days late!! Anyway, better late than never… Yashvi asked me to tell you the most important things I’ve learnt in college.
