Little did I know three years ago that the ever so delicious snack my friends and I all love was created in West Virginia AND that not many people in the world have ever had one! This blew my mind when I came to school. I did some research as to why the entire country didn't … Continue reading Have you had a pepperoni roll?
While the entire east coast was getting pounded with snow, my family and I decided to make an impromptu trip up to Sugar Mountain in Boone, NC. Growing up in West Virginia has made me a semi-professional at driving in the snow and makes me fearless about the weather unlike the majority of people down … Continue reading Winter Adventure Jon[e]s
We ventured over to the other blue school across Tobacco Road to indulge in one of the best brunch places in the area, Monuts. For those of you that haven't been, I HIGHLY recommend it. There is something for everyone. I personally prefer the more savory options even though you can't go without getting one … Continue reading Monets or Monuts?
I was asked this question during a recent job interview and it really resonated with me. Since then I have continued to think about my answer and realized my initial answer "to travel" has more truth to it than I initially blurted out in mild panic.

I went to Interlaken, Switzerland all the way back on the weekend of February 20. It seems like such a long time ago now. However, it was and still continues to be one of my favorite weekends abroad.

Being thousands of miles away from the people you love didn't make Valentine's Day the most welcomed holiday but we still celebrated with Italy. This past week there has been a chocolate festival in Florence with booths … Continue reading The Week of Loveee
I've been procrastinating writing this blog post and I actually have already been on another weekend adventure since this one. Writing a blog is much more time consuming than I anticipated. When I am in Florence during the week there is not as much down time as I thought there would be. I also have … Continue reading 3 cities, 2 countries, 1 weekend
For anyone that wants a summary of my weekend: Paris was amazing. I packed for an entire weekend in a backpack!! We hit up all of the iconic places, went to the very top of the Eiffel Tower, and even ate dinner in a great restaurant that coincidentally was in the Louvre/overlooked the Louvre. Saturday: … Continue reading Paris.
I've been really bad about posting what I've been doing this week but nothing really of substance has happened. I've continued to eat great meals and recently most of those have been made by me and my roommates. Our Survival Italian class comes to a close today and I'm not sure if I'm going to … Continue reading The Final Week of Culture 101
