Europe: Three months in review

The other night I couldn’t sleep so I decided to look through my scrapbook from Europe (which I finally put together when I got to IF). As I looked through it, I realized that exactly one year ago, I would’ve just returned from my three-month adventure. So, in honor of my anniversary, here are some […]

Some things you just never grow out of

There was a four-year age gap between them. But their relationship dated back 19 years so she didn’t even notice it. They’d been together for so long, she often forgot she was four years older. Thinking back to their first encounter, she remembered the moment she laid eyes on him. She knew he was going […]

A conversation with one of my BFFs

*Phone rings* Me: Hello? Wynn (ominously): Dude… Me (with a feeling of impending doom based on past experience and the fact that she just got off the phone with her boyfriend): What? Wynn: Did you know that Universal Studios is building a Harry Potter theme park? Me (feeling more relaxed): Yeah, it’s supposed to open […]

Usually these emails are press releases about events going on at the schools or research being done. So imagine my surprise when I received a release about Barbie. I […]

My birthday wish list

My birthday is in a week and a half, so I figured it was time I posted my wish list. I’ll be honest and say that a lot of this is going to be just copy and pasted from my Christmas wish list with a few alterations. There are some new items, though. Enjoy! Books – Cookbooks – Especially […]

Highlights from my 22nd year of life

With my 23rd birthday two weeks away, I’ve decided to do a little reflection on how I spent my 22nd year of life. For the first week and a half or so, I was in Europe. On my actual 22nd, I was in London by myself. I’d just spent three months studying in Rome and had […]
