This Might Get a Little Political: Student Loan Debt

It’s of no surprise that I am someone who carries student loan debt. I’m 29-years-old, went to a private college, graduated in 2010 right after the financial crash, and moved to New York City eight months after I graduated because that was the only place that was hiring at the time. It’s extremely difficult to…

Wanderlust 2017: Created by the British to Annoy the French

What is there to say about Bruges? Well to be honest with you, I kind of blacked out for the one night we were there which almost resulted in me missing the bus to Paris. Thank God for my lovely roommate at the time, Sydney who woke my ass up 10 minutes before we had…

Wanderlust 2017: In Freedom, Most People Find Sin

When I told my friends that I would be spending three days in Amsterdam, they all giggled – understandably so. Amsterdam is a city of freedom; one where it doesn’t matter what you want because you can have it as long as you’re okay with it being regulated – you very rarely hear any complaints….

Wanderlust 2017: Built Not on Stability, But Change

We made it to our final stop in Germany, and I couldn’t have been more excited. I kept daydreaming about walking along the Berlin Wall seeing not only historical sites, but the artwork that has been created all over it. Checkpoint Charlie For many, when they hear Berlin, “Checkpoint Charlie” comes to mind. Checkpoint Charlie…

Wanderlust 2017: Jewel Box

We were heading back to Germany and I was extremely excited. At this point, I was loving my trip. I thought to myself about how I could easily travel forever – and would love to any day. Our next destination was Berlin, but first, we were going to take a couple hour break in Dresden,…

St. Pete Beach 

Yesterday I went for a long beautiful walk on St. Pete Beach around 5 PM. In the distance, you could see thunderstorms howling over the Gulf; I couldn’t help but notice how beautifully the sun would shine through the dark clouds despite the fact that a storm was roaring. Definitely put life and humanity into…

Wanderlust 2017: Czech Yo’self Before You Wreck Yo’self

I totally wrecked myself in Prague. Since I had already visited this city, I had decided that I was going to lay low, rest up knowing it’s about the halfway point of the trip, and take it slow. I did no such thing. Ice, Ice Baby The first night in Prague, we went out to…

Wanderlust 2017: Kenopsia

Kenopsia (noun): The eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet. I want to keep this one short, but think it is extremely important to have a stand alone entry. On our way out of Munich heading to Prague, we made a stop at the Dachau…

Wanderlust 2017: Work That Lederhosen, Baby

After a long stint in Italy and short stop in Austria, we ended up in Munich, Germany! When looking at the initial itinerary, I never would have thought that Munich would be my favorite location to date (minus the Greek Islands, which all of us agree felt as if the islands were a totally different…
