Participate, participate, participate!
As you can already tell by reading this title, this post is all about participation!
During my high school years I was very shy when it came to speaking in front of my classmates. Even to this day I get a little timid, but now that I have pretty much grown out of my nervous shell, my hand is the first one to go up when a teacher asks a question or... [Read More ... ]

The Burden of Responsibility
This week I have the opportunity to watch 5 dogs. Yes you heard me correctly: five.
My sister, her boyfriend, and his family are all on an amazing vacation in Mexico! How lucky are they?! Anyway, I was offered the chance to watch their dogs while they were away, and I was super pumped because I absolutely adore animals. But let’s be honest; I... [Read More ... ]

Since starting school here at the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology, I’ve learned a lot about myself. The main thing I’ve learned – in just the past couple weeks – is that I for sure want to be a journalist, whether it’s for a magazine, newspaper, or a broadcast journalist. Writing is what puts my mind at ease and I... [Read More ... ]

It’s a new year and I can almost guarantee most of your New Year’s resolutions are “to become the best version of yourself”. Luckily for you, a new semester is a great way to... [Read More ... ]
To be completely honest, I absolutely love my sleep. It has become one of my best friends. I remember a time in pre-school when I wouldn’t get up from nap time, so they dragged my bed into the classroom and I woke up to all the kids staring at me. I’m not too sure if it was a lesson the nuns wanted to teach me but all I gained from that... [Read More ... ]
Scatter My Ashes Where?
Second semester has rolled around as I’m sure you all know, but just like a new semester I have begun to have new thoughts about my career path. Better yet, I have been contemplating my career path.

Plot Twist: Valentines Day – not just for couples?
If you are aware of your days and months – which I hope you all are – then you know that it’s February and only a few days left till Valentine’s Day.
Even though I am in a relationship, I definitely do not forget the “lonely” v-days and how I felt as if I were the only single girl out there! I know how silly it sounds... [Read More ... ]
