A Day in a Life Narrative: My name is David and I am currently a graduate student at Duke University. A normal day for me consists of reading and writing, graduate school is my life. I want to know as much as possible in my field and I do so by researching and traveling. I don’t trust everything I read or hear, and I am critical of much information presented to me, particularly on the internet. That is why I love to travel, I can see and understand the world for myself, rather than learning about it through someone else.

I have a great husband and wonderful children. But ever since my mother’s death, I have wanted to know more about my family history. Recently, I have been considering traveling in order to discover information about my past, but I have realized that it might be too hard on me to travel. I am looking into other ways to discover information on my family’s past. I am fairly technology-literate, although I do not know how to use technology and the internet to its fullest.
