October 10th, 2015

I’m back from a semester abroad, I’ve moved off campus, and I’m an upperclassman. Fall 2015 has been a period of adjusting to say the least. Last spring I had probably the best semester of my college career studying at the John Felice Rome Center. So being back in Chicago has been a little more […]

Sweet Home CHICAGO

June 16th, 2015

  There is no better place on earth than Chicago and let me tell  you why… Explore: Get to know the city through the CTA (Chicago’s public trains and buses). Students get U-Passes which provide unlimited access and serves as your passport to the city. This is a great way to explore different neighborhoods all over the city. […]

  My graduation is T H I S Friday at 3 pm!  I am so excited, but so are my parents so I can start job hunting!  I want to share a website that has really helped me out to get organized on my job search.  Sorry for the short post, but after having a […]

Graduation Dress

Graduation Dress

May 1st, 2015

Graduation is quickly approaching, and who is freaking out about what to wear!?  Luckily, I already knew what I wanted for my special day.  I definitely wanted to go with a Lilly Pulitzer dress, so dress shopping was much easier for me.  I went to the Von Maur in Lombard, IL because they were the […]

1,353 Feet in the Air

April 25th, 2015

At 108 stories tall and grandly poised in the heart of Chicago, the Willis Tower held the title of the world’s tallest building for nearly 25 years after its completion in 1973. The Skydeck Chicago, on the 103rd floor, remains the highest observation deck in the U.S. On Friday, I become one of the 1.5 […]

The Heartland Café

April 24th, 2015

For all of you organic lovers out there, I found the perfect little place for you! The Heartland Café is a small café off of the Morse stop (just one stop north on the red line from Loyola) that specializes in all-organic and locally grown foods! I have a friend who is a health nut […]



April 23rd, 2015

Alright, so I know summer is not here yet. Honestly, it does not feel like summer at all with this recent weather we’ve been having. But as a Chicago native, I shouldn’t be so surprised with the crazy weather. Anyways, in preparation for the summer, I have planned everything out day by day. As I […]

Recorded Lectures: a love and hate relationship

April 22nd, 2015

I cringe every time a professor tells me that they record his or her lectures.  Why?  Well, at that point, he or she is giving me the chance to not listen.  I am tempted and the struggle is real.  However, I understand why the professors do it.  I really do!  I love hand writing all […]
