Why I Chose Diamond Resorts

We hear it over and over- "I'm on the job hunt". Whether you're fresh out of college or looking for a career change, it seems like everyone is pursuing the ideal role. And where I understand the idea, I've realized that finding the right company is so much more significant than finding the perfect job title. Think ...

One Year, 4 New Skills

2 0

Call me cliche, but there's something about the new year that gets me every time. Maybe it's the fresh start, maybe it's the reflection of everything you accomplished the year prior (or maybe it's the champagne), but I always get giddy at the start of a New Year.To test my will power, every year I pick ...

Goodbye Maui, Hello Phoenix

They say "the only constant in life is change" and that couldn't be more accurate for me. Change has been the name of the game this year (namely, when it comes to my living situation). Six months ago I was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to move to Maui for work. I took ...

23 Things I’ve Learned

0 3

It's that time of year again... by birthday I've always found it interesting how people react so differently to turning another year older. One of my best friends cries every year on birthday ("Am I old?!") and another celebrates her birthday all month. Turning 23 is an odd age- when I imagine the milestone ages of ...

My Mind + Body Makeover

0 1

I've always been an "all or nothing" type of person. If I want to take up a new hobby, I get borderline obsessed, reading and learning everything I can about it. If I want to eat healthier,  it turns into a 10 day juice cleanse. Call it being a perfectionist, but over the years I've found ...

In a few weeks, I'll be having my very first visitor in Hawaii! My brother and his girlfriend are teachers,  so they decided to spend some of their summer vacation with me. Naturally, I've been going into full fledged planning mode anticipating their arrival at the end of this month and I couldn't be more ...

This past week marked my one month anniversary of moving to Maui. It's been a crazy four weeks, full of meeting new people, spending lots of time on the beach and attempting to get settled in a new living space. Living in Hawaii is very different than living on the mainland (or anywhere else I've ...

Next Stop, Moving to Maui

I've always wanted to move away from Florida, where I grew up and went to college. Sure, there's nothing wrong with Florida- it's perpetually sunny with plenty to do, but it never felt right for me. Call it wanderlust, but I've always had the desire to get out there and see the world, to experience a ...

How One Program Changed My Life

5 1

I've always considered myself ambitious- I got good grades in school, I stayed involved and I worked hard. As my college years came to a close, I got a mild case of "what on earth do I want to do with my life?" I always assumed that because I was ambitious I would just figure ...

Why I Fell in Love with Maui

I took a little blogging hiatus, but I'm back! Update-I spent my first two months of the year working in Las Vegas and I've spent the last two weeks Maui, Hawaii. I always pictured Hawaii as being a super touristy place with plane ticket prices that rival Europe, so it was never really in my ...
