Disney’s Newsies at Oriental Theatre

Disney’s Newsies at Oriental Theatre

December 18th, 2014

Last Wednesday, I had the opportunity to see the musical Newsies at the Oriental Theatre in downtown Chicago. I had always wanted to see this show, and being able to see it in Chicago before heading home for the holidays was the perfect way to end my semester! Newsies is a very high energy Disney […]


Bulls game

Bulls game

December 15th, 2014

I really wanted to share with all my fabulous experience at the Bulls game.  Last Saturday, they played against Golden State.  I bought these tickets for my boyfriend and I.  The pictures show how close we were, row 6!  Yes, the tickets were expensive, but so worth it!  However, you can find cheaper tickets and […]


Update on My Commuter Life

Update on My Commuter Life

December 11th, 2014

The first semester has almost come to a close and with that, I have learned how to adjust to commuting well (Note: this is the first time I am using public transportation to get to school). There have been some interesting moments I have encountered along the way via the CTA. You meet people of […]


Joyful Hearts at Millennium Park

Joyful Hearts at Millennium Park

December 10th, 2014

Last Day of Class. Downtown Chicago. Millennium Park. The Bean. Christmas Lights. An Ice Skating Rink. Enough Said. Well almost… To celebrate the last day of classes two of my roommates and I made our way downtown for an ice skating adventure. This wasn’t a spur of the moment decision, Chloe and I planned far […]


Make More Adventures

Make More Adventures

December 7th, 2014

  Living in the third largest city in the United States means that there is always something to do. I can come up with a number of reasons why I haven’t truly taken advantage of exploring Chicago, but those are all petty excuses. That’s why my first New Year’s Resolution, which I admit has come […]


Christkindlmarket

Christkindlmarket

December 4th, 2014

Chicago is no stranger to winter and Christmas fun during the holidays. One of my newfound favorite places to visit in Chicago during the time leading up to Christmas is the Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza. I was able to visit three times so far, and plan to go again! In this post, I will be […]


Fast Delivery Food for Finals

November 30th, 2014

Who else gets super hungry when studying?  The worst type of hungry is the 2-am-studying-for-finals hungry.  Damen and Simpson are closed and so are the cafes around campus.  Star Grill is a walk, and it’s probably not a good idea to be walking outside at that time anyway.  Your only choice is to order food, […]


Grateful for this City, Grateful for this School

Grateful for this City, Grateful for this School

November 29th, 2014

Thanksgiving is quite obviously a time to give thanks. I could go on and on about all the things I am grateful for, but I wanted to give a little extra thanks to the city and school I’ve come to know and love over the past year. CHICAGO, Thank you for: The skyline. It always […]


When My Grandma Comes to Visit

When My Grandma Comes to Visit

November 28th, 2014

My grandma lived in Chicago for part of her childhood before moving to rural Illinois. The phrase, “You can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl,” describes her perfectly. So when she comes to visit me in Chicago you better bet that means we do […]


Getting in the Holiday Spirit

Getting in the Holiday Spirit

November 27th, 2014

As Millennium Park opens its ice skating rink and Loyola begins decorating the campus with garland, big red bows, and Christmas trees, I begin to feel the holiday excitement. In addition, the annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, “the nation’s largest evening holiday celebration,” began its 2014 season last Saturday, November 22. Since this was my […]
