Scenes from the Weekend 08.31.15

One of my biggest non-academic goals that I set for myself at the beginning of this semester was to make the most of these next four months while I’m here on campus.  As cheesy as it sounds, there’s nothing worse than focusing so intently on school to realize that four months of your life just whizzed […]

An Ode to Oats

And just like that, the first week of classes is finished!!  The first few days are always challenging since you’re adapting to this new schedule and trying to figure out what routine works best, so it’s such a big relief to have gotten past that stage.  It also helps to be an upperclassman because you […]

Scenes from the Weekend 08.24.15

Between moving in and Orientation Leader training, it’s been a busy few days since I arrived on campus last week.  Today marks the first day of classes, but I did make sure to take advantage of the glorious weather by squeezing in a couple of fun adventures in the free time that I had!    […]

A Summer Reflection

Tomorrow morning, I am heading back up to Ithaca to start my Junior year.  My bags are all packed, the car is all loaded, and all that’s left to do is make the actual drive up.     With first-day jitters keeping me up and thoughts running like crazy, I figured a late-night writing session […]

Empower, Inspire, and Uplift

There’s something about spending a few moments of solitude at the sea that does the soul wonders.  I savor moments of quiet solitude, for those are the times where I can truly process my thoughts.  Those thoughts flow unfiltered through my mind, and sometimes they can turn into a wonderful piece of writing, like the […]

Scenes From The Weekend 08.03.15

Weekends are something that I always look forward to.  But weekends in August, not so much.  Why?  Maybe it’s the fact that in a few short weeks, our care-free summers will fade to find existence only in our memories, or the fact that August is the month that I have to pack up everything and […]

Our Digital Presence

One of my favorite quotes of all time is: “don’t judge a book by it cover.” Yes, it’s been said over and over, but I can’t think of a situation where it is not relevant. I may only have 19 years of real-life experience, but all my experiences so far have proven these words to […]


Yesterday’s post was heavy on the pictures, so I figured today would be a good day to share some writing with you guys!     I love to incorporate yoga into my daily routine, so just like how we always begin yoga practice with our intentions for that day, I wanted to start off this […]
