CA to NJ: Day 8 — Homeward bound

The last day of the cross country trip arrived, and I had never been more excited to get on the road. “Why?” you may ask.

CA to NJ: Day 1 — Goodbye, LA

When I arrived in Santa Monica in June of 2019 with my grandfather, I did not expect to be hitting him up for another road trip just over a year later. But, as I said, COVID-19 has really changed people's lives, and the reflection it allowed me ended up changing mine.  Pop Pop arrived at… Continue reading CA to NJ: Day 1 — Goodbye, LA

“Millenials only see things through the lens of their cameras.” “Why don’t kids put down their cameras and live in the moment?” These are statements I’m sure most of us have heard or even thought—I can say I’ve done both.

Solo Series: My First Massage

I am not into fancy things. I even get uncomfortable when my boyfriend takes me to a nice restaurant, which he finds entertaining. So that’s why getting my first massage was a big deal for me. It felt fancy, and I wanted to feel like I earned it. (Okay, this is my second massage. I… Continue reading Solo Series: My First Massage

Cross Country Road Trip: By Myself in Cali

June 16, 2019 Pop Pop left yesterday and I am officially in LA with just my own company. I cannot say enough how thankful I am to have Hallie’s apartment to myself for the time being.
