If you’re anything like me, you love to curl up with a good book in hand and a nice cuppa hot chocolate – oh, it’s still Summer? Well, how about a frozen hot chocolate then…

A Look Back: Bath, England

Founded in the 1st century AD by the Romans, the city of Bath in South West England was cherished for its natural hot springs used as a thermal spa. Bath is one of 1,052 World Heritage Sites, and it happens to be one of my favorite spots I’ve traveled to.

Can’t believe this was 4 years ago!

A New Journey

A quick poem inspired by the new job I start tomorrow…and a look back on where I’ve been these past few years!


A life no longer measured by school bells,

fresh notebooks, shoes and pens. 

But by the working days and hours,

again, again, again. 

Memories all jumbled,

months flow into years.

The pursuit of love and happiness,

drizzled by loss and tears.

But with growth comes opportunity,

and the chance to start anew.

A journey to embrace,

a journey to pursue. 


That time I interned at NBC Nightly News (2012) and got to film a demo tape:

And then all the interns got to grab a photo with then anchor, Brian Williams:

That time my school thought I was the poster child for Journalism co-ops (this is still the current pic on the site ahhahah):

That time I graduated (2013) and decided to make my cap look like a ransom note:

And then I landed a job at ABC News, Nightline after graduating (2013-2014):

And then I decided to work at NBC Nightly News again for a bit (“a bit” = three months, 2014-2015)…

and then I said, f-that-shit, I’m going to temp and travel the world instead:

I graduated from Northeastern nearly three years ago and I’ve been able to have some really incredible experiences since then.

Looking forward to this next chapter; hope you’ll join me along the way!

A Look Back at London

In July of 2013 I was off to London to study abroad for a month as a part of Northeastern University’s Dialogue of Civilizations program. I wasn’t blogging back at that point, so I figured I’d share some snapshots from my time there with y’all.

Photos below are a mix from London, Bath and Stonehenge.

Got to see my main man, JT, at London’s Wireless Festival. He was incredible, as always.
