Chapter Fifteen Travels: Charleston, South Carolina

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of adventure. I love to travel and see new places, try new things, see new beaches, eat at new restaurants. With a couple days off from work in late June, my mom and I tried to decide where to go away to. We threw around different places like Cape May, New Jersey, Ocean City Maryland, Philidelphia, Pennsylvania, and many others. But I was pretty set on Charleston. In the spirit of adventure, we bought some snacks at Target, got on the road (a long  ...

Adventures, Just for the Weekend

Weekend in Pittsburgh

If you missed my Instagram Stories this weekend, you’d know that my college friends came to visit me this weekend in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I kind of felt like the Bachelorette doing a hometown date. I’m the only one in my group of friends from Pennsylvania and for four years, I’ve told them about how much I loved the city and all the things I loved to do and all the places I love to eat. After graduation and before we all branch out towards the rest of  ...

New Adventure: National Cherry Blossom Festival

This past weekend, a group of friends and I drove up to Washington D.C. for the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival. The Cherry Blossom Festival has so many events that a weekend is hardly enough time to devote to every activity. There is an annual parade, fireworks, and celebrations of United State’s relationship with Japan. You can also walk around the National Mall and the rest of the monuments and look at all the beautiful blossoming trees. You can also rent boats and paddle  ...

Post-Graduation Plans

So I’m a just about a month away from graduation. If we’re being specific (and I have been) it’s 37 days away.  That’s five weeks away. That’s thirteen days of classes away. I won’t lie, as excited as I’ve been for graduation this entire year, I’m a little nervous. School is all I’ve known my entire life. And I know there’s so much more life to live outside of school but there’s something about the routine of it that’s  ...

The Last Sorority Formal

Last night, I experienced one of my “last” memories of college: spring formal. My sorority calls it Black Diamond Ball and it was in a renovated barn with a Great Gatsby theme. Formal has always been one of my favorite events and has given me of my best memories of college. And this year was no different. For this formal, my roommates and I decided to have people over to hang out before formal. Our friends came to our apartment, we laughed, had some drinks, took pictures and  ...

New Adventure: 100 Days Until Graduation

It’s hard to believe that I’m in the home stretch of my college experience. While I’m excited for this new post-grad part of my life, it’s hard to believe that I’ll be leaving this school in just a few short months. I’ve made some amazing friend and even more amazing memories. This night will definitely be one of those memories. This night was not about being upset because college is almost over. It wasn’t even about being excited it was almost  ...

New Adventure: Wine Tasting

A group of friends and I went to Crosskeys Vineyard, a beautiful place tucked into the Shenandoah Valley, to celebrate a friend’s birthday. It was giggly afternoon as we sat around a table and sampled a variety of local wines and cheeses. I found my love of sweet wines. And I mean sweet. I have a sweet tooth so I can’t say that I’m surprised. My favorite, by far, was their Ali d’Oro, a dessert wine with a higher sugar content than alcohol content. Essentially, it was  ...
