I can’t help but crack a smile every time I sit down to write a column for The Michigan Daily, and oddly enough, it’s because of my grandpa. I beam from the “your grandpa would be so proud of you” comments I get from my family each time I do something deemed as following in his footsteps, like writing for the college newspaper. I radiate when I hear the voice inside my head making jokes about word choice and how to fix a run-on sentence.

In November of 2009, a special election in New York state meant that school was cancelled, so my mom decided to take my sister and I into New York City for a girl’s day. We planned to shop for hours at our favorite stores, stuff ourselves with classic New York pizza for lunch and venture to Midtown Manhattan. Before we left for the city, my mom explained that I would need to give a urine sample to the doctor.
