Although my daily work commute is quite long, one of the unique perks of living in D.C. this summer is having my car, Lilly. I’ve survived quite well for the past three years Lilly-less.

Inside D.C.’s Farmers’ Markets

Inside D.C.’s Farmers’ Markets

On any given Wednesday afternoon during the school year, you can find me stopped at the Georgetown University Farmers’ Market sampling the fresh fruit and vegetables and waiting anxiously in line for my non-Leo’s lunch. Going to the farmers’ market became a weekly ritual that I always looked forward to.[Read More…]

Capital Fourth of July

Capital Fourth of July

On any given Fourth of July, you could find me sitting in the backyard, typically on our hammock, waiting for my parents to finish barbecuing and my mother to not-so-subtly ring our dinner bell (yes, she bought a dinner bell for our back porch). Honestly, it’s not too much different[Read More…]

Jazz in the Gardens Lives up to Expectations

Jazz in the Gardens Lives up to Expectations

I awoke extra early, partly out of excitement, but mainly because my alarm went off and I didn’t want to wake up my roommate. There was the general Friday excitement, but this would be no ordinary Friday. I was finally going to my very first Jazz in the Garden concert at the National[Read More…]

Through Difficult Times, Learning to be Indepedent

As I rewrite this column, things have changed quite dramatically since my first draft. Notably, my Halloween was a lot more trick than treat as my roommate and I discovered a burglary had occurred in our room. My laptop and all of my saved work, including my column, disappeared along[Read More…]

Danish Food Market Bursts with Flavor

Every Wednesday at approximately 5:30 p.m., I get a Facebook notification reminding me that the Georgetown University Farmers’ Market starts in 30 minutes.  Although I have greatly missed all of the free samples and the fresh smell of crepes walking to my classes in the ICC, I have found a[Read More…]

In Europe, Finding the Real Drinking Culture

Prost! I might not know how to say “hi, how are you” in German, but, after a successful weekend at Oktoberfest, I have definitely mastered “cheers.” After a week of travel across Budapest, Vienna and Munich, I can proudly say that I a) survived, b) appreciate maps more than anything[Read More…]

When Abroad, Make New Friends But Keep the Old

I may not have found “the one,” but I have found my partner in all things cafe-related, and that’s perfect for me right now. I would like to start off with a disclaimer: We did not plan on studying abroad together. In fact, we were both torn between two programs[Read More…]
