Midterm Break Adventures

I’ve missed you, readers! I apologize for my writing absence during the last week as I was living out of a backpack (clothes and all) and didn’t have room for my laptop. It’s so good to be back, and I’m PUMPED to tell you all about my travels. Here’s how I’m going to structure this: […]

How to Survive The Pre-Thanksgiving Break Itch

You can feel it in your bones – the need to get out, to put down your pencil, to print out the final draft of your ten-page research paper, close your computer, and breathe. I feel it, too. The itch, the annoyance, the anxiousness that hits us every time we’re about to go on break. […]

Fall Break: Pittsburgh Style

This Fall Break I had the privilege of introducing my best friend, Ashley, to my hometown: Pittsburgh. On Friday after class we set off and left campus behind us for a few days of fun times with my family. We arrived at my house in Wexford (a suburb just north of Pittsburgh) around 9:45 p.m. […]

The Crazy Weeks Are Upon Us

You betcha. Crazy weeks are upon us here at Hope, but I’m sure they’re at your high schools, too. For some, it may be your spring break, and for others, this is the homestretch.

It’s quite an exciting time because all students deserve a nice long break, whether that is down south, or home, a break is a break. The weather may not be spring-like, but at least there is break!

Viva Las Vegas!

Usually around Thanksgiving Break, I’m rushing to finish my homework and trying to go to earlier classes so I can be home as soon as possible. This year was a bit different. Yes, I still rushed to get my homework done so I didn’t have to do anything in LAS VEGAS! This year for Thanksgiving, […]

Fall Break

I’m so glad to be on Fall Break. School has been so hectic, and being away from school is just what I needed. When I came home last Friday for break, I went to my mom’s new café she opened up (her actual opening day was on Saturday). I was so shocked to see how […]
