Hola hola hola. I'm a bit jet lagged and still in the midst of some pretty serious culture shock, but I have some free time today so I'm gonna share some of my newfound culinary knowledge with y'all in regards to eating in Spain! Keep in mind, I'm no expert, and I'm only speaking based … Continue reading Food in Spain
Hola a todos. Long time, no blog. Sorry for being MIA this past week-- I have been busy with some very important travels...and very persistent jetlag. My messed up sleeping schedule has caused quite a lapse in my writing abilities, but after a week of settling in, I'm ready to get writing. So here's a quick … Continue reading My first ever trip to Europe!
We've all had our travel horror stories, haven't we? Missing a flight and getting stranded in an airport for ten hours. Getting locked in the bathroom on a Peter Pan Bus. Arriving three minutes after your connecting train leaves. Or maybe that stuff has just happened to me... Regardless, traveling can be a real pain … Continue reading Rant Time: Raging in NYC
It's that time of year. Junior spring, when everybody in every college ever goes abroad to Europe or some other part of the world-- unless they already went in the fall. Your feed is clogged with Facebook updates from various airports in Spain, Ireland, and Hong Kong. And Instagram is flooded with photos of iconic … Continue reading Voy a España – I’m going to Spain!
Work in Progress! When I moved to New York City from the suburbs of Long Island last summer, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had been to New York City before, but I had never stayed there extensively-- and I had never worked or commuted there. As someone from the suburbs, where my Toyota Corolla … Continue reading Traveling: Long Island to NYC
Ah, the gym. The beautiful, terrible gym. As soon as you walk in, if you're not overwhelmed by the overpowering smell of sweat and body odor, the crowds of human traffic will probably do the job. With so many people milling around in a highly limited space, it's natural to head to an area you're most … Continue reading Fitness Chronicles: “The Bro Side”
Blake and I first matched when I came home to Long Island the summer after my freshman year, and he was my first Tinder date ever. Considering he went to a good college, knew some of my coworkers, and had attended a prestigious all-boys high school, he seemed like he would be a pretty respectful … Continue reading Tinder Nightmares: The Clinger
This Tinder date was the first match that I got in Providence once I returned to Brown for my sophomore year, and it took place at a local cafe. He told me he was a sophomore who had taken a gap year, but when he mentioned his dorm at the start of the date, it … Continue reading Tinder Nightmares: The Boy with the Back Tattoo
My boyfriend and I met the day after Thanksgiving on a romantic afternoon in Union Square Park in Manhattan. With red and orange leaves lining the trees and a crisp fall breeze in the air, it almost felt like something from a fairy tale. After spending a few minutes searching through the crowd of bustling … Continue reading Love Story – The Beginning
On June 12th at approximately 5:20pm, I leave my grandmother’s Central Park West apartment and meet John at the corner of 86th and Broadway. Holding hands, we head down into the subway, which is packed with rush-hour commuters, and make our way downtown. We are headed to try out a restaurant we had just discovered … Continue reading Mistaking Milkshakes for Male Strippers
