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 […]


Latin American Student Organization

Latin American Student Organization

November 16th, 2014

Did you know that Hispanics are the largest minority at Loyola University Chicago?  Among Loyola’s diverse campus, the student body consists of so many cultures that you’d be surprised!  Freshman year, I was lucky enough to live in the international floor (by luck), and I met so many students from all over the world.  This encouraged me to search for more people […]


Faith: a strong belief in the doctrines of a religion

Faith: a strong belief in the doctrines of a religion

November 14th, 2014

For several weeks now, I have been contemplating joining a Christian Leadership Community, or CLC. Strictly speaking, I do not deeply identify with any particular religion and, at the moment, am not sure exactly what I am when it comes to religious affiliation, although I wouldn’t classify myself as an ‘atheist.’ Born to a Buddhist […]


Intramural Soccer

Intramural Soccer

November 13th, 2014

I’ve always played varsity soccer during my high school career.  Even though, I would’ve loved to play for a D1, even a D2 school, I knew the time and dedication wouldn’t work out with the major I wanted to pursuit. So, when I found out that there was an option to play intramural soccer without traveling […]


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 […]


Felines and Canines Animal Shelter

Felines and Canines Animal Shelter

November 9th, 2014

Meet Kevin, a one-year-old gray tabby from Felines and Canines Animal Shelter, located a few blocks away from campus on Clark and Devon.  When my friend Jen and I first visited Felines and Canines Animal Shelter, he left his lookout spot in a sunny window and approached us cautiously.  After a while, he was extremely […]


To & From Loyola

To & From Loyola

November 8th, 2014

This has been my first year commuting and so far, I have to say that I have a lot of respect for all of those commuters out there!  Not only is it work, but it is a commitment.  We all want to get to school on time, but driving to the city, let alone taking […]


Laundry In A Residence Hall

November 5th, 2014

One big step when coming to college is beginning to do your own laundry. In this post, I will be discussing how to do laundry in a residence hall on your own! Whether you used to do your own laundry at home or will begin doing it yourself for the first time upon arriving at […]


Windy City Winter

November 4th, 2014

If you’re from Chicago, you know how bipolar the city’s weather can really be. One day it’s about 30 degrees and snowing in October and the next it’s 70 degrees and feels like a late September day. When the weather is so different day to day, it’s hard to figure out how to efficiently dress. […]


For When You’re Missing Home

November 2nd, 2014

It’s been a while since you’ve seen your parents, your siblings, or your pets and at this point in the semester you’re probably dragging. It’s already been a month since fall break and we’ve got another month to go before Thanksgiving break, so how do you cope with the homesickness that just kicked in? Well, […]
