The Spirit of Christmas

December 19th, 2014

Since the start to my winter break, I have had the chance to go downtown a couple of times to see the beautiful lights wrapped around the trees, decorations in the store windows, holiday music in the malls, and little specks of snow falling down on our beautiful city of Chicago. Daley Plaza is filled […]


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 […]


Winter Break!

December 15th, 2014

My last final was on Thursday and I was relieved and happy to have finished testing before most of my friends. Nonetheless, I had come back to school the next day to wish my friends good luck on their tests and for the whole day, I was relaxing in a comfy chair enjoying myself watching […]


Have a Relaxing Yet Productive Winter Break

Have a Relaxing Yet Productive Winter Break

December 14th, 2014

According to the New York Times article Relax! You’ll Be More Productive, “the best way to get more done may be to spend more time doing less.” That is why, this winter, I plan to have a relaxing, yet hopefully productive, break from classes. During the semester, so much to do in so little time […]


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 […]


Looking Forward to the Spring

Looking Forward to the Spring

December 10th, 2014

For everyone one else in the world, spring comes in March. But for those of us whose lives revolve around an academic calendar as opposed to a Gregorian one, the ‘first day of spring’ comes in early January. Spring is the season of new beginnings, including a new semester and new activities and events. One […]


Semester One: A Synopsis

December 10th, 2014

As the first semester of my college career comes to an end, I’m forced into my brain’s own nostalgic memoir of the fifteen weeks that have passed. I learned a lot and grew up faster than I thought I would have to, which written out sounds cheesy and cliché, but it’s true. Heading into college […]


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 […]


Winter Break: So Close Yet So Far

Winter Break: So Close Yet So Far

December 2nd, 2014

Now that Thanksgiving weekend is over and we are approaching the final week of fall classes, it is easy to focus on the proximity of Winter Break, forgetting all the responsibilities of the present. Only ten days remain, yet something seems to be blocking my path towards victory: FINALS. As aggravating as they are, final […]


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, […]
