7 Books to Read Before Summer Ends

With a commute like mine, I’ve been reading about a book a week. From poetry to nonfiction to an office survival guide, I’ve gotten my hands on tons of books this summer. There are only a few weeks left before an endless barrage of Foucault, Rousseau, and Marx take hold of my free time so these… Continue reading 7 Books to Read Before Summer Ends

Vegan for a Month

My meal planning struggles have reached new heights this summer, since I have to cook all my meals, so I asked my cousin, Kaitlyn, to write about her experience trying the hardest thing in the whole world: her month meal planning as a vegan. Veganism. Carnivores everywhere clutch their steaks in disbelief and pray it… Continue reading Vegan for a Month

I Tried (and Hated) SoulCycle

After running the marathon and trying CorePower Yoga, I decided it was time to try another cult exercise class, SoulCycle. I wanted to do a whole month of classes, and spent the spring saving so I could afford them. I was so excited to try it, so you can imagine my disappointment when I finally… Continue reading I Tried (and Hated) SoulCycle

Namaste Beaches: My Week at CorePower Yoga

After the marathon, I figured it'd be good to spend my exercise time doing something a little less extreme to my body. In my eyes, there really isn't anything that puts less stress on your body than yoga so I decided it was time to give yoga another try. I challenged myself to a week… Continue reading Namaste Beaches: My Week at CorePower Yoga

Working Woman: Keep Your Commute from Getting to You

Today, I spent 3 hours on public transportation, trying to get to and from work (don't I sound like an adult?!). The bus was crowded both ways and that summer heat caused some pretty serious BO. This week will be a little worse than normal- thank you, Taste of Chicago- so here is how I… Continue reading Working Woman: Keep Your Commute from Getting to You

I Ran a Marathon: Bay of Fun(die)

This was the hardest thing I have ever done. After six months of relentless training, I took a few days off of work, jumped on a plane to Boston, grabbed my mom and my friend Katie, drove 7 hours up to Canada, and ran 26.2 miles of non-stop hills on an almost 80 degree day… Continue reading I Ran a Marathon: Bay of Fun(die)

End of Year Review 2016-2017

What a year! In a whirlwind, I'm ~officially~ halfway done with college and I made it out (mostly) alive. Remember those goals I had for the year? Well, here is how they went and a sneak preview of what the summer could have in store for me! This year was a rollercoaster of emotion. Life… Continue reading End of Year Review 2016-2017
