First Time: Being Employed

This week I had my first experience working. I can honestly say that my work is not work because of how much I enjoy being a camp counselor. 

I am counselor of the baby campers, also known as the cute ones (they line up in choo-choo train form). Every morning I welcome the parents with their babies who smile as soon as they walk in. That is he smile I work to keep! And as much as I know I have taught them, they have reminded me of how simple it is to have fun when you…

First Time: Seeing the Sunrise

I am currently writing to you from the undergraduate (also happens to be UNDERground) quiet study room at Van Pelt Library. VP has been my home since last wednesday when readings days began. I won't talk about the stress, sleepless nights (although I did see the sunrise for the first time)  and stacked coffee cups because anyone who has ever studied for a final already knows the drill but, I do want to share with you three…

To kick off my first "First Time" blog I will share a bit about…

Luckily, my trip was a success. Not only did I come back with a tan but, I came back ready to take on my next round of midterms (I took 2 today, just 1 more left on Friday).

Now, I will be honest and tell you that during the first few days back it was not that easy...which is why I have compiled a…

Home Sweet Home

My appreciation for time is not something new. From a young age my sister and I have always been fans of countdowns. We made countdowns for birthdays, vacations, Christmas, last day of school, first day of college and my most recent countdown was "Countdown to Puerto Rico" (look at the picture I included!). I will finally be home this Saturday! I have never wanted spring break to come so badly; one would think that as the years go by(having six years of experience living abroad)…
