Goodbye, 2016!

Yesterday I spent almost an hour writing a really long, heartfelt post about my 2016, believing that being positive in the face of all the negativity of the year would start 2017 off on the “right foot”. After typing paragraphs of what I’m grateful for and have accomplished this last year and then scouring every … Continue reading

Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 3 + Jack’s Visit!

This is the last part of my series on Sinéad’s visit and it makes me sad that it’s almost over — I’m glad I have so many pictures to remember it! 😀 Aside from eating at various new vegan places, visiting magical Harry Potter Land, drinking lots of coffee, baking cupcakes and “scooping lefts”, we also … Continue reading

#NASASocial Event: MMS Mission Media Day at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center!

On a whim a few weeks before my birthday back in September, I decided to apply for a position as a NASA Social attendee – someone that specializes in social media as a way to spread information to those who may not otherwise be informed. I thought the chances of being chosen would be slim … Continue reading

Is it really almost November?!

As much as I’d like to start this post off with the typical apology for how absent I’ve been as of late, I won’t. I don’t want to lie to you, readers, and I am not sorry! I’ve spent the last couple of weeks busting my butt with school, which is paying off tremendously by … 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

Pirates and Legos and Dali, oh my!

When I was a teenager, I spent more time playing computer games and on the internet or with my head in a book than I did hanging out with people my age. I wasn’t an antisocial or socially awkward – I just didn’t have reliable transportation, and the favored past time of “hanging out at the … Continue reading

Our Savannah Trip!

So we actually took this trip around the beginning of last December, but with the rush of Christmas followed by starting my new semester, I’ve been too swamped to actually update about it! One of my longest online friends was about to move across the country to midwest and since we had been living just … Continue reading

Five by Five – Quarter-Century Goals

I love goals and lists and am too ambitious for my own good, it’s true! Every December I make a list of goals for myself for the new year, and every year they’re forgotten by March! To break the cycle, I’ve decided to start my “new year” immediately following my birthday — I personally think … Continue reading

Happy Halloween from Salem!

For Halloween this year, Nick and I drove an hour to Salem, MA so we could go on a few ghost tours and spend a couple of hours in one of the most historically haunted cities in the country. It was so cool — The city is gorgeous and the streets were filled with people … Continue reading

A Long Absence Pt. 2: Maryland

Nick and I have been so busy since moving! We started working a week ago at a nice little Trader Joe’s in Boston with my awesome friend Manda and have been looking for apartments and stuff since getting here. We left our computers back in Florida so we only have our iPhones (which, I recently … Continue reading
