How would I fare in a Results Oriented Work Environment? Very well, thank you.

Corktown’s getting a hostel, and that’s a big deal

Big news in Corktown — the Detroit neighborhood is getting a hostel. Yes, this is a big deal. Here’s a fun fact about me: I studied in Spain for a semester of my senior year in college. Knowing that I might never get the opportunity to visit there again, I traveled almost every weekend....
