Happy Dandelion Appreciation Day!

FullSizeRender (30)I declare May 23rd Dandelion Appreciation Day.

Not to be confused with National Weed Appreciation Day, which celebrates actual weeds and not marijuana.

What would childhood have been without dandelions? No wishes to make, seeds to watch float off, stalks to chew, little white specks to look for in a field? Continue reading

This Kid I Know: Christina

FullSizeRender (26)We have a joint bucket list that is as full of things to do as it is full of things that we have already done.

It all technically started sometime in Welcome Week, but since I don’t remember meeting her, it all started for me in winter quarter when Christina and I went on a hell of an awkward bubble tea date, where we just asked each other questions to get to know each other.

However, I realized that it differed from other conventional interactions because we seldom stay in one place. On that day we took our KFT’s to go and walked along the beach.

Maybe both of us realize that the world is constantly changing, and if we also want to be, then we have to be out and about discovering as much of it as we can.

The recipe for our friendship is a spoonful of adventure and a dash of spontaneity. And laughter. Lots and lots of laughter. After all, it’s not about the destination, but the journey.

Something that I love about her is the way that she dances. Like she doesn’t give a flying fuck about what anyone else thinks about her, she’s just going to jam out to the music. And you know what? I’m always down to jam with you; you’ll never be without a partner, OKAY COOL? NG NG

No longer will I dread long train rides, because you’ll be there to talk with me and voluntarily make conversation about deep shit.

This quarter especially has created so many lasting, amazing memories in which you appear. Concerts, 2AM dance parties in the most unconventional of places, CSA, beach days, and more.

Though we do have similar values and think alike a lot of the time, I love hearing about your opinions and experiences, since we’re literally from opposite ends of the country.

Thank you for showing me amazing music, for always having my back, taking the time to listen and show interest in me, and being overall, so so loving.

Life hack: Watch the sunrise

We are fortunate enough to be situated next to Lake Michigan, which is on the east side of our campus. This makes the lakefront the ideal spot to watch the sunrise.

Now I know what you may be thinking. Why not just watch the sunset? Continue reading

Did you miss me?

I’m back in your inbox, your feed, etc. It’s been a few days since I’ve posted, and even over the past few weeks, content has been pretty sparse, for a few reasons: midterms, hefty weekend plans, and in general, lots of big changes happening in my life.  Continue reading
