Lost in Louisville

Being here at Hanover, things can get boring if you stay on campus for too long. So one Tuesday, I decided to have a ladies day with myself in Louisville, Ky. I had a hair appointment and drove up early to go shopping before my appointment. I drove to Louisville alone — this was my first…

An atypical Thanksgiving break

Usually my Thanksgiving break acts as my lifesaver. I am up to my neck in papers, projects, reading assignments — you name it — they’re all there demanding my attention. This year, I still had a lot to do but I just wasn’t ready for a break. I didn’t really have a burning desire to go…

Taking a personal day

This blog is not going to be about me skipping class to take a personal day, but it is going to be about me taking the majority of a Saturday to get off campus with my two very best friends for a day in Louisville, Ky. This past Saturday, one of my roommates was scheduled…

It’s a Jungle Out There

Or rather, in here. The most recent Omnibus trip took me on an adventure unlike any I have ever been on before. As a self proclaimed “foodie” I jumped at the chance to visit Jungle Jim’s, a huge international market in Cincinnati. Its website labels it a foodie’s market and that is not an exaggeration….

Home for the Holidays

It’s great to get to go home and spend time with your family when you are away at school. I am so thankful that I now live close enough to be able to do so. My freshman year of college I went to school in Philadelphia, which is definitely not very close to Illinois, and…

Life After Break

After taking a break from campus and blogging, I am back (and hopefully better than ever). I had a lot of things happening all at once during the last few weeks of Winter Term and none of them were happy, cheerful or blog worthy. But now that I have returned to campus, everything is alive…
