Mastering the Trains: Amtrak and Metra Edition

November 20th, 2014

As college students in the city, public transportation has become our best friend. Obviously the easy access to trains and buses is a huge benefit for all of us living here, but before you get the hang of it all you’ve got some learning to do. The CTA will get you anywhere you need to go […]


Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

November 20th, 2014

With less than a week to go before Thanksgiving and not even a month remaining until the winter break, this feels like the perfect time to reflect on my first semester in college, before studying for exams takes over my life. I find it pretty amazing that what started as a nudging self-reminder to count […]


Food Adventures!

Food Adventures!

November 19th, 2014

This semester, more than any other, I have gone on so many different food adventures around the city—and I have absolutely loved it. This past weekend, I went to a super cool new pizza place called Blaze Pizza! If you’re from the West coast, you may have heard of this place, and if you’re not—well […]


Tips For Keeping Warm This Winter

November 19th, 2014

If you know anything about Chicago winters, then you know it can get pretty cold and snowy in the city during the months of November through March. Although I’m not from Chicago, Michigan can get pretty cold during these months as well, as does any northern state! In this blog, I will be sharing my […]


More Cupcake Truck

More Cupcake Truck

November 14th, 2014

One of the most exciting things about the city of Chicago that I’ve noticed so far was the abundance of gourmet cupcakes! Cupcakes can be found everywhere around the city, even just outside the Loyola red line station every Thursday night! In this post, I will be talking about the cupcake truck from More Cupcakes […]


Chicago Preparing for the Holiday Season

November 12th, 2014

The city of Chicago wastes no time in preparing for the holiday season. As soon as Halloween passed, the festive decorations and lights began popping up all over the city. In this post, I will be discussing the excitement the decorations bring to the city as it prepares for the holiday season! This will be […]

November 11th, 2014

This time I want to share with you two winter experiences you can ONLY get in the Windy City! These two things only happen in November and December, during Holiday season, every year and are both things that you do not want to miss out on!   1.Lincoln Park ZooLights! The Zoo Lights is basically […]


Senioritis

November 10th, 2014

It’s my last year, but I’m lacking motivation.  Graduation is so close, yet so far away. Senioritis is inevitable.  It happens to all of us; whether it is only on one assignment and/or an entire class, know that it exists.  Let’s be real, though…we are all nerds at heart.  This is why our senioritis doesn’t […]


Will Run for Chocolate

Will Run for Chocolate

November 9th, 2014

When you sign up for an average 5K you usually get a fancy, new race shirt, maybe a water bottle if you’re lucky. When you run the Hot Chocolate 5K you earn a little extra race swag. Crossing the finish line of this race earns you a “Finisher’s Mug”, which (of course) includes, hot chocolate, […]


From the Other Side of the World

From the Other Side of the World

November 9th, 2014

12,047. That number represents the distance, in kilometers, between Loyola and the place I previously called “home.” It translates into 8,543 frequent-flyer miles and two days of travel time in each direction, with over 20 hours in-flight, traversing more than one-quarter of the earth’s circumference. Needless to say, this makes visiting my parents on the […]
