It's crazy to think it's been a full year since I graduated college. I can still clearly remember the moment it dawned on me that I was going to have to graduate a semester early. I felt panicked- I had just turned 21 three months earlier and I didn't feel like I was ready to go ...

There are more than a couple of reasons why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. First and probably most obviously, the food. Any holiday that centers around a good meal is fine by me. But of course, it's more than that. I love Thanksgiving because it marks the official countdown to Christmas, it usually involves spending ...

A few weeks back I found out there would be a change to my November schedule- instead of spending the month in Lake Tahoe, I would be spending the month in Sedona, Arizona. To be honest, I was pretty heartbroken at first. But when I arrived in Sedona last week, my mind was immediately changed. ...
