Major Event 1:
Super Tuesday is the biggest day of the US presidential primaries and the beginning of a steady stream of surprise wins for Trump. By the end of the month, Trump is hogging the headlines again with several controversial comments, including that women shouldn’t be able to have abortion.

Major Event 2:
The Trans-Pacific Partnership Flops
It can be a quick ride from the penthouse to the outhouse. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) began in 2016 with considerable fanfare. The deal, which took seven years to negotiate, was the largest regional trade deal in history and a cornerstone of the Obama administration’s rebalance to Asia. But the deal came under fierce attack from both Democratic and Republican presidential candidates. The Obama administration held out hope that Congress might pass the TPP in a lame-duck session of Congress.

Pop Culture:
Drake's long-awaited Views dropped on April 29 and gave a home to last year's viral "Hotline Bling." The first album to reach one billion streams on Apple Music, Views remained in the top five of the Billboard 200 chart its first six months after release and received five Grammy noms.

Personal History:
Another big lacrosse year for me, I was invited to play for 3D nationals team. A team that's very hard to make. 3D nationals is a select team in Philadelphia that take some of the best players from around the country and competes in a tournament.
