Description • By the end of the night, my desk— scattered with notebook paper, multi-colored flashcards, marked up drafts, a giant graphing calculator, and graph paper—looks like someone has ransacked the place. It’s hard to even find my copy of Catcher in the Rye buried underneath it all. FEED D CATS
