Concert Hopping

Concert Hopping

November 22nd, 2011

Tomorrow is Loyola’s last day of classes before Thanksgiving break, and thank God! Two more class periods left and I’ll be on the road headed home to that great state shaped like a mitten. This break will definitely be well-deserved. Last week was busy busy—all of my professors are loading up the assignments and papers […]

“Monkeying” Around

November 22nd, 2011

So this is a bit silly, but I have a giant sock monkey I got two years for Christmas. I brought him up to put in my dorm, but one day I came in to find that my roommate had dressed him up in my clothes!  This turned into a recurring event, and its always […]


Loyola Theater: My Exclusive Experience

November 21st, 2011

This week I had the unexpected delight of being invited to a rehearsal of one of my good friends’ girlfriend’s directing scenes. She is a Theater major and a Senior, so I believe she is required to direct a scene for her class. It was a pretty cool opportunity, and I was glad for it […]

Finally I Have Brothers!

November 21st, 2011

Growing up I always wanted a brother.  When I came to Loyola I simply wanted to avoid Greek life. There was something about that just didn’t seem right for me  me. Now, I realize that joining Alpha Phi Omega (APO) is quickly becoming one of the best decisions of my life. Let me start by […]

Twilight, 2011 Lights Festival and Birthday Fun!

November 19th, 2011

Every November Chicago’s Lights Festival parades down the Mag Mile to ring in the holiday. Conveniently, the parade has always  fallen on my birthday weekend.  I was especially anxious to commence this weekend’s activities since I had 3 papers due consecutively Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! As I’m sure you’re all aware, this was also the opening […]

Today, Friday, November 18, is my best friend Kelly’s birthday and she absolutely loves owls so I decided to make her some owl cupcakes! I found a picture online but did not have all the correct supplies so I improvised. This is what I started with: vanilla icing, Oreos, strawberry Jello,  Raman Noodles, M&Ms, Kraft […]


Why take Advanced Placement (AP) courses?

November 18th, 2011

Wednesday night, I attended a parent workshop at a suburban public high school here in the Chicago area. The principal spoke to parents about why the high school is choosing to move forward with offering more AP courses and the importance of challenging students early in their high school career with honors-level courses. She presented […]


Loyola U(new)versity

November 17th, 2011

If you have had the opportunity to walk around Loyola recently, you may notice a few things that stand out from the traditional college campus.  That is because Loyola is not your common college campus. Aside from being just miles north of one of the biggest cities in the United States, Loyola proudly boasts a […]
