Music Mix!

March 28th, 2013

I’m always on the run from one place to another, from class to class, job to job, stores, meetings, anything else imaginable. Therefore, I always have my phone charged and headphones in, listening to music. Every genre has it’s own beauty to me, so I have a little (actually a lot) of everything in my […]


The Game of Footy

The Game of Footy

March 27th, 2013

Footy – it’s a big deal. I finally got the opportunity to see my first match, as the season here is just starting to kick off. This match was just a scrimmage at my school in preparation for the upcoming games, but it was still great fun. In my opinion, the game resembled something between […]


Busy Loyola Days

Busy Loyola Days

March 26th, 2013

It’s just the beginning of a new week, the middle of another Tuesday, but it feels like the days are rolling from one to the next with no breaks or ends. I was happy to have Friday and Saturday as my weekend, but I spent a lot of them doing homework and catching up on […]


St. Baldrick’s Day

March 22nd, 2013

This past week, one of the fraternities at Loyola (Sigma Alpha Epsilon) put on their annual philanthropy event, “Paddy Murphy Week”.  The week includes events such as penny wars (a competition between sororities), powderpuff football, Paddy’s Widow Pageant (a talent show between girls in different sororities) and St. Baldrick’s Day.  Any proceeds made from these […]


O’Week at Deakin

O’Week at Deakin

March 21st, 2013

Orientation week, or o’week as they call it, is more than just getting acquainted with the campus and crowds of new faces, it’s a tradition here at my host school in Australia, Deakin University. Not only is it the last week until summer ends and classes begin, but the week is filled with events, new […]


Visit and Revisit Your Top College Choices

March 20th, 2013

Many students get a jump start in the college selection process. One example is a high school sophomore who just e-mailed me about her upcoming visit to campus. Being ahead of schedule and making an early campus visit is a great idea—you’ll get to see where the campus is located within the city/area, get a […]


Viva Mexico!

March 20th, 2013

It’s been a long time since my last blog, but I’m back now! Almost two weeks ago, I was in Mexico, which was amazing. We stayed in the beautiful resort, Riu Palace Mexico, and in the future, I’ll definitely be going back. We didn’t venture far from the hotel, choosing instead to stay close and […]


St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day

March 19th, 2013

St. Patrick’s day in Chicago is the best! At home, St. Patrick’s day comes and goes with an article of green clothing and maybe some green eggs. But in Chicago, it’s a whole different story. We celebrated it on Saturday instead of Sunday. My day started when I woke up at 7:30 am to start […]


Game Night

Game Night

March 16th, 2013

While many students might be spending their Friday night doing other things, me and my group of brothers decided last night would be spent better just relaxing and playing some board games. Of course no game night is complete without Risk… I’m not allowed to play with them anymore, I am 20-0-2 (one of my […]


Spring Break

Spring Break

March 15th, 2013

We may still have Winter weather but last week was our Spring Break. Unfortunately, I did not get away from the cold as many of my college peers did. It was okay though because I went back home to Michigan and got to see my family and my dog. I had a very relaxed break […]
