Life of a Groupie [read: a weekend of celebrating accomplishments]

As you all probably know, I’m not the only one graduating this year! Of friends spread out in the Northeast, I’m just one of the four you’re most acquainted with: Tiffany and Melissa graduated from New York University and Lela will have graduated from Drexel University by the time this is posted. This past weekend, […]

Wicked Wondahful [read: day in Portland, ME]

Never have I ever heard so many great New England accents talkin’ about lobstah and havin’ a wondahful stay than on my 7 hour adventure to Portland, Maine! As the weekends come up, I get ready to get out of Boston and out to another landmark city close by. This Sunday, Paola and I took […]

Jersey Shorin’ [read: flyin’]

Enter college recreational road trip! My goal this summer, while being in Boston studying for the LSAT, is to have something so incredible in the city to keep me here on the weekends or a beach to escape to otherwise. This weekend was the latter, with a nice trip down to the Jersey Shore! Eesha, […]

Women’s March on Washington [read: first steps]

I’ll start with this: I’ll be talking about my observations about the march I attended last weekend in D.C. and they are both good and bad. There are issues with every single movement, even if it is the largest demonstration in our history, so it’s important to have a healthy dose of criticism, serious self-reflection on […]

Chi-Town Freedom [read: weekend trips just got a big upgrade]

Who managed to get to Chicago, attend an engagement party, and come back to Boston in 2 days? Oh, yours truly. It makes me feel so grown-up to fly out to Chicago for a weekend. The NYC weekend trips are great and all, but this requires a little more planning than a spontaneous bus ticket […]

On a Tiny Continent [read: return to Manhattan]

I had to take the bus. I’m not the happiest when it comes to buses, so my return to Manhattan on a bus fell a little short of the homecoming I’d wanted to have. The real homecoming, though, was with the most famous of French models over one of their (belated) birthdays. Yes, Lela back […]

Sweet Home Alabama [read: seven days in the South]

It’s a comfort song but it’s also a little racist. Kinda like Alabama itself. So, it’s a great introduction to my Alternative Spring Break in Selma, Alabama for seven days this past week because it brings light and challenges to real issues that exist in the South like Civil War & Civil Rights history. Alternatively, it’s also […]

Surprises in New York City [read: that’s right, I’m back]

All last week I was thinking about going to New York City… again. It was Tiffany’s birthday and I figured I could celebrate with her, until she said she was too busy and had midterms to study for #buzzkill. But then she turned around and said she wished there was a “teleporter machine” and we […]

NYC Reunion [read: French model reunion]

A little New York City is good for the soul. I’ve loved the city since Day 1. I was born in New Jersey so in my mind Manhattan was always within reach (now I realize that is false because commuting is a b*tch). I got back to Boston a few weeks ago and knew that I […]

Three Cheers to Three Months Abroad [read: please, someone, take me back]

I spent the past three months studying abroad in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Sometimes I forget because I’m already back to my normal routine of vacuuming sand out of my car Geo from beach trips (or really asking my dad to do it because love is unconditional) and it seems like it all went […]
