Meet My Best Friend


Hey everyone! I want to introduce this post by saying that this is something I've been meaning to do for a long time. I love the concept of "interview" style posts that feature other individuals (largely so you, as the reader, don't have to continue hearing about just me all the time, as I'm sure that becomes dry quite quickly). Also, there are many important people in my life who I selfishly hog but whose voices deserve to be heard and shared. I'm going to start by introducing you to my best friend, Mere (I'd say soul mate, but that sounds a little over-the-top/cheesy). So, without further adieu...

Trip to the Windy City: A Photo Diary


Brief but a blast, my dad and I explored the city of Chicago last weekend for the first time. Our weekend was composed of college touring, delicious food, shopping, photo-taking, and more wandering. The weather was absolutly beautiful (65ยบ and sunny), which I did not expect given the city's "brutally-cold" reputation. Instead of captioning each photo, I figured I would summarize some of the weekend's highlights by bulleting some excursions that I would recommend to anyone visiting Chicago (not all are pictured above):

These are a few of my favorite things...


I'm kind of a horoscope junkie. No, I'm not an astrology whiz at all whatsoever. However, I do check my horoscope on a daily basis (a proud Taurus) and designate quite substantial validity to whatever the day's short excerpt encompasses. With that said, I understand that it seems ridiculous to some; that I let a random, fabricated jumble of sentences dictate my daily optimism. Weird, right? I know. Checking my "DailyHoroscope" app has become habitual, a part of my routine. In a way, its psychical aspect makes me feel as if my life is movie-like; a story that is being retold, in which I am the main character. Even if things don't play out in the way my horoscope predicts, I know that the day will still have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Somehow, I find that comforting.
