Book Review – Divergent

Title:¬†Divergent Author:¬†Veronica Roth Publisher:¬†HarperCollins, 2012 Pages:¬†Paperback Edition, 487¬†pages Rating: 4.5/5 I’ve been on a reading kick lately, and I’ve been revisiting my favorite genre in life – YA Fiction. I’m not ashamed to admit that the pretty covers draw¬†me in, or that¬†the easy to follow plots and angsty, emotionally turbulent characters have me¬†speed-reading through my … Continue reading

Lately…

The last two months or so of life have gone by in a crazy blur. I’ve sat down at my desk at least three times to try writing a post that appropriately condenses everything neatly with a few photos to share the details, but it’s proven to be a more difficult task than initially thought! … Continue reading

Vacation Post: Shopping in Japantown

Sorry about the short hiatus! I started my summer term 5 weeks ago and between taking two 4+ month long classes condensed into the span of 5 short weeks, working 40+ hours a week and new puppies (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), it’s been pretty chaotic around here and I’ve barely had a good night’s rest, not to mention the time it’d take for me to update!

Now that the semester is winding down, I realize I never posted the entirety of my trip photos from Nick & I’s vacation BACK IN APRIL! :O

In case you need a refresher…

Vacation Post: Life on Alcatraz Island

¬†One of the activities Nick and I had been most looking forward to on our trip was the visit to Alcatraz Island. We bought our tickets online months in advance from Alcatraz Cruises¬†and gave a few morning hours to ourselves so that we could explore everything we wanted to while there. The ferry to the … Continue reading

Happy Birthday, Let’s Get Galactic!

June marks the second anniversary of my little blog! It¬†came up so quickly! Nick is currently helping me with a blog renovation since it’s been awhile since things have been spruced up around here – before we moved to Boston even, and that was already over a year ago! Time sure does fly! The complete … Continue reading

Vacation Post: Touring San Francisco

Even though we arrived in California later than we planned, the rest of our trip went smoothly and we managed to visit and see everything we had hoped to during our vacation! One of my favorite days of the whole trip (and probably of life) would definitely have to be our second day in San … Continue reading

Tuesday 10: My Favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer Episodes

To help with the regularity of my posts, I wanted to create a weekly feature that had to go up even when I didn’t feel like writing anything else. I love lists and I love organization, so what better feature to include than a top ten list? I’m also pretty fond of alliteration, so Tuesday … Continue reading

Vacation Post: The Wedding!

Our whole vacation was prompted¬†by an invitation from my¬†friend¬†No√ęl to come visit her for her wedding. Although we hadn’t really known each other very long by that point, we had bonded over talk of hair dye, sassy cats and the mutually shared annoyance of finding everything you want when you’re clothes browsing and broke, but … Continue reading

Recipe: Green Summer Smoothie Cubes

I know a lot of people think putting vegetables in their sweet treats is really weird. I’ve heard all the “that looks like baby poop” jokes I can stand, thanks. I will still keep reaping the benefits of this wonderfully delicious smoothie, and I’ll still keep laughing in the face of those who inhibit the … Continue reading
