Feeding Your Soul

Feeding Your Soul

All throughout my childhood I hated when teachers welcomed students back from school breaks, because there was always that moment where everyone was able to share what they did over vacation. Deep down I resented each person who was able to raise their hand and say that they went on a trip outside of New England. I was never able to share any experiences, because my days of going to the park with my cousins were of no comparison to…

Goblin Valley State Park: One of Utah’s Best Hidden Gems

Goblin Valley State Park: One of Utah’s Best Hidden Gems

Ever since my first camping trip, I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the outdoors. I’ve learned what exploring can do for the soul and keep finding new situations where I’m completely taken aback by the beauty of mother nature. Being outdoors has become my reset button from the stressors in life, so in an effort to keep myself sane I try to take little weekend trips and explore a new place every couple of weeks. I’m not picky about where…

Destination: Mono Hot Springs, California

Ever since we left Utah I started craving the feeling of contentment I had waking up in the mountains surrounded by pine trees and cool crisp air. Unfortunately, waking up overheating from the desert sun just isn’t quite the same experience. Very much missing our favorite camping spot in NH, Tripoli Road, Corey and I were determined to find some camping by a water source. After being in the desert for a few weeks, the thought of hiking with the…

“Despite how much ‘we’re everything to each other,’ we’re really not.”

“Despite how much ‘we’re everything to each other,’ we’re really not.”

I don’t think anyone would’ve guessed that we’d still be together almost a decade later. Our relationship has grown from the infatuation stage of our (MANY) days of skipping high school, through the struggles of being a college student, and finally the beginning stages of our careers. We’ve supported each other through it all, and while we’re still developing as individuals, our relationship has been consistently developing as well. Like every other couple, we’ve had our rough patches. We’ve had serious…

Destination: Cedar Breaks National Monument, Cedar City, Utah

After visiting Dany and picking up Duke from Colorado, Corey and I were so ready for the last leg of our trip back home to Los Angeles! When we originally made the drive from LA –> Fort Collins, we got a late start and decided to spend a night in Las Vegas. This shortened the next leg of the trip by 4 hours and allowed us to make it to Goblin Valley State Park in Utah to camp out for…

Some basics to help new graduate nurses ace an interview

Some basics to help new graduate nurses ace an interview

I have been to countless interviews since I graduated from nursing school. At first, I relied heavily on allnurses.com and other websites for interview tips and practice questions, but after a while I felt like I found my groove and had a pretty good idea of what to expect. I’ve gotten to a point where I feel pretty confident going into interviews. I no longer get nervous, stumble trying to find words, or rush when speaking. Although I still get…

Destination: Buena Vista, Colorado

After a month in the Philippines and two weeks to focus on family in Boston, we were so ready to pick up our little fur child from Salida! As expected with traveling, the journey from Boston to Mr.Dookie was long and tiring! We attended Tyler’s graduation in Lowell the night before our departure. This meant a midnight train ride and Lyft back to our apartment in Cambridge, some last minute packing and then a 3 hour nap (only 30 minutes…

My Review of Pokemon Go (as a nonplayer)

My Review of Pokemon Go (as a nonplayer)

I’m someone who was completely oblivious to Pokemon Go until the day it was released in the US. The only reason why I wasn’t completely confused when I began seeing Pokemon Go all over news headlines and Facebook is because I overheard Corey talking to his little brothers about it. It’s basically a phone application where the location of your character in the game corresponds to your location in real life. So if you’re walking through a park in real life,…

Destination: Baler, Philippines

Destination: Baler, Philippines

We had originally reserved the last few days of our Philippines trip completely open to spend time with Alan’s family, but since we learned that his parents would be away in Japan, we decided on an impromptu trip to go surfing in Baler instead. We booked 2 nights at a hotel on Sabang Beach, the most popular beach in town with tons of surf shops catered to the newbie surfer. The journey to Baler was a lot more exhausting than…

El Nido, Philippines (Part 4: Surfing at Duli Beach)

El Nido, Philippines (Part 4: Surfing at Duli Beach)

The first night that we hung out at Spin Hostel, the guys connected with two artists who were performing at their jam night. This eventually lead to us having connections for our island hopping tour and hike up Taraw Peak. Lucky enough, one of the artists, Mike, is also known as “the surfing guy” in El Nido. He introduced surfing to the tiny town and is solely responsible for teaching every local surfer how to shred. They even named a surf…
