Mundelein Auditorium Construction

February 29th, 2012

Typically I do not have much to complain about, but the writing of this blog was timed just after a phone call from the head of Housekeeping at Loyola. He needs legs to support some platforms that he is setting up in the Information Commons. He called me to ask if I knew where they […]


Spring Break!

Spring Break!

February 29th, 2012

Only two days until spring break! In the midst of midterms and many papers, it is the light at the end of my tunnel. This year I am going on a mission trip to Nicaragua from March 3 to March 10 and I could not be more excited! The trip has been organized by one […]


Moving On to a New Book

Moving On to a New Book

February 29th, 2012

Just finished my book– “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close“ by Jonathan Safran Foer. It was so great! I got through the last couple of pages on the shuttle from Lakeshore Campus to Water Tower Campus late  last night. The novel presented a really unique perspective on the events of September 11, 2001, given from a […]


If You Like to Read, Read This

February 28th, 2012

I’m preparing for this week to be a bit of stress-fest for me. Surprisingly, besides a pathophysiology exam this morning, I don’t actually have any upcoming exams to take. However, I need to recover from my five straight weeks of testing, practicals and competencies. Soon I need to, prep for my upcoming work (starting the week […]


Home For The Weekend

Home For The Weekend

February 27th, 2012

This past weekend I was able to take a trip home for a few relaxing days. I am not going home for spring break so this was a great opportunity to see my family and catch up with old friends. After only a 2.5 hour Amtrak train ride I was home! We got a couple […]

Facebook Page: Loyola University Chicago Class of 2016

February 27th, 2012

I want to use this post to give a shootout to the official Loyola University Chicago Class of 2016 Facebook page. There are a few thoughts I have about this page that I think may be helpful for prospective students.First of all, use this page. When I was an admitted Freshman I made what I […]


Oscar Sunday While Abroad

February 27th, 2012

If you couldn’t tell by now, I am a complete pop culture junkie.  Being abroad has been a challenge to my fanatic love of pop culture, as I do not have direct access to American television shows/movies/gossip.  So, on Oscar Sunday I was a sad I didn’t have access to the red carpet or the […]


Cupcake Crazy

Cupcake Crazy

February 26th, 2012

I’m surprised I haven’t thought to bring this up yet, but picking up a cupcake from More, reminded me of the cupcake craze that has hit in recent years.  More has a particularly exciting way to score free cupcakes and has become a pretty popular thing to do, especially if you live on the Water Tower […]


Endorphins Make you Happy!

Endorphins Make you Happy!

February 25th, 2012

As Elle Woods once said, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands. They just don’t.” I am the first to admit that until a few weeks ago, I loathed the gym. I thought it was weird smelling and kinda pretentious and I didn’t really see the point in ever […]


Enjoy the Lake. No seriously, Do It.

February 25th, 2012

As per my last post, let me tell you a bit more about the awesomeness of Lake Michigan. I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the months of warmer weather and go out and enjoy Lake Michigan as much as you can. With the semester almost halfway over, most Loyola students likely have avoided […]
