Why People are Fabricating their Vacations

This is a friendly reminder to not compare yourself to others. We are all guilty of it to some degree, whether it’s about worrying how fast you graduate from college compared to your classmates, your income, where you live or even how quickly you can get married and have kids. A new concern being added… Continue reading Why People are Fabricating their Vacations

Do You Know Who Your Real Friends Are?

Friendship is a topic I have previously talked about on here. It’s something I thought about a lot as I graduated from school and prepared to officially start my career. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: I have some of the best, most loyal friends. However, I don’t think that’s too… Continue reading Do You Know Who Your Real Friends Are?

Advice from Someone Who is Done with School Forever

Last year I urged people to explore the unknown, work relentlessly towards their goals and to never forget to have fun. That was after I completed my bachelor’s degree at Hofstra University. Now, I have finished the master’s portion of my education, and I am officially done with school forever (insert long breath of relief… Continue reading Advice from Someone Who is Done with School Forever

Do You Know the Name of Taylor Swift’s New Album?

While this blog is mostly about travel, I do have my little entertainment section. I haven’t posted in this section for much too long, but that’s because I was writing bi-weekly celebrity-related content for Her Campus, an online collegiate magazine. However, my college days are now over, so I can direct my entertainment writing back… Continue reading Do You Know the Name of Taylor Swift’s New Album?

A Reflection of my Blog 3.0

I can’t believe this is the third year I am reviewing my blog. Similar to last year, I am quite excited with how much I was able to keep up with it this past school year. Last spring, I was finally able to share all my Australian travel videos and over the summer I finally… Continue reading A Reflection of my Blog 3.0

2018: Work Hard, but Play Harder

2016 was all about traveling. 2017 was all about learning to take a break. 2018, I decided, was about pushing myself to my limits and proving that I did not graduate from college for nothing. At the beginning of 2018, I had no idea what was in store for me. I had no plans to… Continue reading 2018: Work Hard, but Play Harder

A Lesson Learned from my First Week of Grad School

The first week of graduate school taught me that I’m a nut job, or a “whack job” as my professor informed me. This is how it went down: Friends and family give you advice and help guide your path, or at least that’s what I believe. You say you understand something and will or won’t… Continue reading A Lesson Learned from my First Week of Grad School

The Meaning Behind my Tattoos

Just over a year ago, I did something (almost) completely irreversible: I got tattoos. During my second to last week in Australia, I went with my roommate to make a tattoo appointment for her. This was right after we had watched our friend Brian get inked in Thailand. With sparked inspiration from my friends, plus… Continue reading The Meaning Behind my Tattoos

How Fans Saw the Post Malone 2018 MTV Video Music Awards Performance

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards were met with a lot of criticism: the deserving artists didn’t win, the Aretha Franklin tribute by Madonna was lackluster and Avicii was almost completely ignored. I did not read much disapproval, however, about Post Malone’s performance, the finale of the night. The grand ending of the 2018 Video Music… Continue reading How Fans Saw the Post Malone 2018 MTV Video Music Awards Performance

A Letter to Future Study Abroad Ambassadors

My semester abroad in Australia lasted over a year. I extended my study abroad journey by becoming an AIFS Alumni Ambassador during my senior year of college. At the end of the program, AIFS had ambassadors write letters to the potential new liaisons at our schools. I thought publishing my letter may encourage others to… Continue reading A Letter to Future Study Abroad Ambassadors
