GOOD Challenge: Concert for a Cure
Just in case you’re wondering where I’ve gone…
The summer has gone by exceptionally quickly! I don’t really know what happened but I was on the beach relaxing with friends and all of a sudden I’m almost done with my internship!

It’s almost been six weeks since I’ve gotten back from Morocco and I’m not entirely sure what I’ve been up to since then. Although I attempted to give academics another shot this semester, I’ve had trouble cracking a book, and I think that’s okay. This has really been a time of both physical and mental … Continue reading Banana Bread
The past few days I can’t help but take the time to notice just how unbelievable the weather has been. One of the things that I guess I’ve picked up in Minnesota is talking about the weather with anyone who will listen. It’s such a topic of conversation out there that I’m not kidding when … Continue reading A Cliche Conversation Starter
After two long weeks of not blogging, it seems that I have been drawn back to cyberspace. Call it an addiction to the written word or an electronic compulsion… but I’m back! I’ll be writing here as I settle back into real life and figure out what comes next. I’m looking forward to two months … Continue reading Hello world… again!
