"All aboard!" The train to life has left the station and thankfully I managed to hop on, albeit winded, sweaty, dirty, and exhausted. But, I'm on it. That's what counts, right? In the past 2 months months I have graduated from college (more about that later), accepted a job, and moved two hours away from… Continue reading Independence & Identity
I had an interview for an internship in downtown Minneapolis a while ago, an interview I nervous about. I was excited too, excited to learn more about the internship, as well as have a chance to interview. It went very well, at least I think it did. I ultimately, didn't get the internship. As I… Continue reading Peter? Is that you I see in the mirror?
I was texting with a friend a week or so ago and I remember having a good 'adult day.' Otherwise known as a day where I managed to be a successful adult. I made some money and made another baby step in the job application hemisphere. Those are the two things consuming my life, oh,… Continue reading I think I’m on the train?
It sounds so hopeful doesn't it? Honestly though, this is the current situation. I am back home from studying abroad, I have technically graduated college, although it certainly doesn't feel like it, and I need money. Plain and simple. Student loans start in 5 months and I have not a single penny to my name. … Continue reading Broke, In-Debt & Fresh Off Campus
Some of the beautiful sights I was gifted with on my 10 days throughout Italy. Rome - Assisi - And, here are some photos of Gaming as a Winter Wonderland -
Assisi. I thought Lourdes was peaceful, Assisi IS peaceful. Even with all the tourists, and there weren’t as many as I was expecting. Of course, we filled almost 3 hotels in Assisi with 250+ people so we took up a majority or the tourists, maybe that’s why? The Churches, the shrines, the sunsets, the tourist… Continue reading Assisi
Rome. Rome. Rome. How my cousin lived in this city for an entire semester is beyond me. I was so over-stimulated and ready to find a secluded lake, after just 2 days!! Despite my brain being almost unable to absorb anything else after day 2, it was an absolute trip of a lifetime and if… Continue reading Rome, Italy
Two cities, two different paces of life, two different cultures, two different types of scenery, gelato, Italian pasta, Catholic Churches, shrines, hills, hikes, security, souvenir shops, museums, and so much more. Those words can’t even begin to start summarizing what Rome and Assisi were together and separate. This will be a joint post, but there… Continue reading Rome & Assisi
I wrote my last official paper of my undergrad career last Thursday. It was probably one of the toughest papers I’ve ever had to write. It was a philosophy paper that could only be 1000 words. I know, I know, 1000 words, that’s nothing. But it depends on the topic. If philosophy is your cup… Continue reading Sometimes It’s the Not So Little Things
Mama Mary; Family; Baths of Lourdes; Miracles; Night Rosary Processions; Travel; Service; Pilgrims - these are some of the very few words I can use to start to describe mission. It feels nearly impossible to find the right words to describe these 10 days. Any words I do manage to use are consistently inadequate in… Continue reading Lourdes, France
