A year and a few days ago was the day that I joined a sorority - Chi Omega. I came into junior year so heartbroken about losing swimming that I knew I needed something. I told my boyfriend that I needed to get involved with something else on campus and he quickly suggested I rush... Continue Reading →


It's times like this that I come to my keyboard and have so much to say. On Friday night, we had our annual President's Gala on campus (which is basically a glorified homecoming). When we got there, it was great until the DJ showed up and then the strobe lights went crazy to the point... Continue Reading →


Another Wednesday... I swear these weeks are flying. Honestly, I used to come on here to write about my experiences with epilepsy. Thank God, it's really been cutting me a break lately, so I've been rambling on about other (way less important) topics. Mainly because I love writing, but also because I made a commitment...

I know I say this all the time but I can't believe another school year is starting... senior year. Monday was my last first day of school... ever. Weird, right? Still not sure what I want to do. Still taking a path that may not lead anywhere. Still going through every day, doing everything I... Continue Reading →

I led a regular life, doing regular things, not even imaging what was coming for me. And then it did. It was... Continue Reading →


The concept of getting back behind the wheel has felt like freedom. For real. It feels like a weight have been lifted off my shoulders - a weight I was very hyper-aware of. It's liberating. But there's also a part of me that doesn't want to. A small part. I'm so scared. I've really been... Continue Reading →


Do you ever have a time when everything is just going really well? In the past few weeks, I got my driving privileges back and I got my dream internship. Two things for which I have been waiting for what seems like an eternity for. Finally bringing my car back up to Connecticut has actually... Continue Reading →


It's kind of crazy that a little bit over a week ago, I was on a train into Stamford, CT for an interview with NBC. I remember in the spring, I applied for 7 different NBC internships in Connecticut and in NYC, and I was heartbroken when I didn't even get one interview. I have... Continue Reading →
