So my last quarter of college, I took a class called American Political Culture. We had just finished reading a novel about race relations and racism in the U.S, and as part of finishing the unit, a group of students had to do a presentation about it. The presentation began with a class activity, where everyone … Continue reading Supporting The Police Is An Unpopular Opinion
So one of my biggest projects this summer is to clean out both my closets— one in each of my parents’ homes. This is a daunting task, and one I’ve put off for years and years. Aside from recent reorganizing, my closets have accumulated things for at least ten years. I haven’t actually taken much … Continue reading Materialism: Why Do We Buy Things?
Last summer, I was fortunate enough to spend an entire month in Quito, Ecuador, as part of a study abroad program at my university.

I know one of my goals was to post something weekly, because I’d realized … Continue reading Stress and School
“So, what are you going to do?” was the first thing people asked me when I told them that he was moving across the country. I thought this was a stupid question. For me, the answer was so obvious it didn’t need to be explained: of course we’d stay together, what other option was there? … Continue reading Long Distance Relationships: Is It Worth It?
Last August I had the opportunity to study abroad for a month in Quito, Ecuador. Every day we had two hours of Spanish lessons at a really small school in Quito. The group of seven students was divided in two, one teacher for each. The teacher for my group was super nice and super outgoing, … Continue reading My Teachers Made Fun of Me for NOT Smoking Weed??

In July 2017, I visited Ireland for ten days. I know that’s quite awhile ago, but I thought I’d recount my time there and the sites I visited. You can visit my Instagram to see pictures from my travels, but I’ll post some below as well. The trip began in Dublin, Ireland, where I stayed … Continue reading Travel Diary: Ireland
