My Curriculum Vitae

Curriculum Vitae (CV)
noun.
A Latin expression which can be loosely translated as one’s “life course”(i.e., the course my life has taken). Stemming as it does from currere, which means “to run,”eventually evolved into the word curriculum, which means “the course one runs.”The word vitae is translated as “of life.”So to list below the course my life has run or, more appropriately, the life-course I have taken and from which I have learned so much along the way. To all my teachers: Deepest thanks for the course.
