Unasked for Advice from a Recent College Graduate

This is a friendly reminder that your life is yours to design. You don’t like something? Alter it. You have negative people in your life? Hug them goodbye. You want to visit a new country? I’ll see you on the next flight. Of course I know nothing is that simple, but even changing your outlook… Continue reading Unasked for Advice from a Recent College Graduate

2017: From Traveling to Relaxing

How I am sitting down to write my 2017 wrap-up post is beyond me, yet here I am. Quite opposite to 2016, this year was not driven by my need to travel. Yes, I travelled; a lot. However, once my beautiful semester in Australia was done, I was not ready to hit the road (or… Continue reading 2017: From Traveling to Relaxing

Thankful for Study Abroad

This time last year, I was fully aware that I was studying abroad in Australia the following semester. However, at the Thanksgiving dinner table I shied away from fully admitting it to my great aunts and uncles, because of the slight chance something might go wrong. Now, at this Thanksgiving, I did not have anything… Continue reading Thankful for Study Abroad

Keeping up with AIFS

My travels have subsided, but my aspirations to see the world have not. I have been fairly quiet this November, mainly because this semester is a Merry-Go-Round of finishing assignments just to get on another ride. However, I have also been busy working with AIFS, the company through which I studied abroad. As a way… Continue reading Keeping up with AIFS

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars was dripping in Finesse as he opened his 24K Magic World Tour at The Nassau Coliseum on Long Island with his song “Finesse.” I’ll have to say, I was surprised when he did not open the show with “24 K Magic,” the first song on his 24K Magic album and, obviously, the name… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Bruno Mars

Lessons From my First Week of Senior Year

  Hofstra students are almost one full month into the semester. So much has happened over the last few weeks that I feel as if I have been in this month for three years. It is crazy to me that I experienced my first day of senior year just a few weeks ago and the… Continue reading Lessons From my First Week of Senior Year

Thoughts on an Unexpected Summer

Summer 2017 turned out differently than I expected. When I was in Australia, I was set on making a bucket list filled with adventures like camping and visiting waterfalls. I thought I would be posting my videos and blogging about my awesome recent trips. However, by the time I got back to New Jersey, I… Continue reading Thoughts on an Unexpected Summer

Why You Should Visit the Jersey Shore

I think the Jersey Shore is a magical place, especially in the summer. The coast of New Jersey consists of about 140 miles of beaches and boardwalks, but I am biased to the Toms River/Seaside Heights and Park area, of course, because that’s where I was raised. From boating to beaching, I seem to never… Continue reading Why You Should Visit the Jersey Shore

Best and Worst of the MTV 2017 Video Music Awards

I was really feeling the FOMO (fear of missing out) of not being at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, since I was there in the pit having the time of my life last year. Despite my consistency of almost never being able to watch award shows, I made sure I was home to view… Continue reading Best and Worst of the MTV 2017 Video Music Awards

Home at Last

Long time, no blog! I cannot say I am pleased with myself for not posting in so long, but you know, life happens. And by life happening, I mean I have been home from Australia for just over a month. I considered the options for first blog post after I got back from my Australian… Continue reading Home at Last
