Campus Commuter

January 14th, 2014

For my last year at Loyola, I decided to move off campus and take advantage of other areas of Chicago.  My friends and I finally decided on an apartment less than one block from Wrigley Field.  So far, SO GREAT. A lot of people have asked me if it gets annoying having to make the […]


New Favorite Restaurant: Cantina Laredo

New Favorite Restaurant: Cantina Laredo

April 25th, 2013

The other day, I met my friend from my hometown, who also lives in Chicago (she teaches at a Chicago Public school) at Cantina Laredo.  We had both never been there, but I suggested it because I have heard good things.  Also, I’ve passed it a few times (its right on State Street), and the […]


Thanksgiving Break

December 6th, 2012

Thanksgiving break was a much needed, relaxing time.  I booked it home on the MegaBus Tuesday, and arrived home Tuesday night to my family, dog and my favorite pasta! It was the perfect things to come home to. I went to both sets of my grandparents houses on Thanksgiving day.  I ate twice (it’s possible.. […]


Thanksgiving with the Family

Thanksgiving with the Family

November 27th, 2012

Thanksgiving.  During the year, probably the holiday I look forward to most.  This year, it had special meaning for me.  Of course, I had a chance to go home, but it was the first time I was able to be home with my two younger sisters since we all left for college.  In fact, it […]


Choosing the Right City

Choosing the Right City

November 1st, 2012

Throughout the travel season, I’ve noticed that quite a few students are applying to a wide array of schools. Applying to many schools can be a good way to keep your options open, but it can also be quite time consuming. I would recommend narrowing the list to save your self some time (and money if […]


Fall’s Fun Functions Part 2

Fall’s Fun Functions Part 2

September 18th, 2012

As promised, I am writing another blog today. To continue on my Saturday, along with having my fortune told, I got to experience other cool things, some that I had previously done and some that I had not. One thing that I had never done before was pet and feed a Llama. In fact, I […]


The Taste!

The Taste!

July 17th, 2012

The first year I came to Chicago the Taste was definitely a lot bigger than this year! But food is food and if it tastes good, who am I to argue. This year I decided to attend again. While my visit might not have been the best for my wallet, I got to sample some […]


(Food) Adventure is Out There!

(Food) Adventure is Out There!

June 28th, 2012

One of the perks (or possibly negatives) about living on your own is that food no longer magically appears on the kitchen table at regular intervals. Because of this, and the fact that my roommates and I are trying to eat healthy, we have been keeping a Food Journal. In it, we write down new […]


Block Par-tay

Block Par-tay

April 25th, 2012

Twice a year, or each semester, the school holds a block party for the Water Tower Campus. They shut down the intersection of Wabash and Pearson.  It’s pretty great.  Normally, they grill out, have dessert, have a band and some promotional stuff.  This semester, however, they really came through with great vendors.  Along the sidewalks […]


I Can No Longer Eat Granola Bars

April 24th, 2012

It’s the last week of class.  For me, I only have one full day of classes left, and that will be cut short due to the fact that I’m going to see the Dalai Lama (post to follow). But why, you ask, can I no longer eat granola bars?  I will tell you. Most mornings, […]
