It’s been a busy time for me with working, enjoying the beautiful fall weather, and also spending a majority of my free time applying for grad school. Yes, I am planning on going back to school. I’ll delve more into that subject in a later post. For now, I must catch up with my Euro-Trip! The last thing I wrote about was my… Read More

Hello friends, I am in San Francisco and I have been here for over a week. I’d like to say I filled last week with a bunch of fun SF stuff, but in actuality, I caught a cold. Though I was under the weather, I did fit in some fun stuff with my sis and brother-in-law. We cooked tasty food with friends (I made Japanese cabbage rolls… mmmm), we went to Sunday’s… Read More

Hello friends, In my last post, I was putzing around on my bicycle and I shared a video I made for my Japan presentation. Well, a lot has happened since then. I went to the May Day Parade for the first time and enjoyed it immensely. If you happen to be in Minneapolis during the first weekend in May, you’ve gotta see May Day! After the parade, there is a play run… Read More

Hello friends, It’s almost spring in Minneapolis. Though it is supposed to snow today, I’ve seen geese flying overhead and I spotted my first robin this weekend. I’d like to think that the migratory birds are a pretty good indicator that winter is coming to an end. As always, I’ve been enjoying my time in Minneapolis. Most recently, I’ve gotten the ole bike out and have gone on some pretty long rides…. Read More

Hello friends, As I sit, I notice the mosquito bites on my ankles are itchy, I feel my shoulders and neck are sore, and I see that I missed some dirt between my toes. The reason why is because I just returned from Minnesota‚Äôs Superior National Forest: The Boundary Waters Canoe Area. I went with my roommate and friend, Laura, who is well versed in the BWCA. She spent 4 summers leading… Read More

The view of the Mississippi River from the Washington Pedestrian Bridge on the University of Minnesota Campus Hello friends, It’s raining here in Minnesota and the early Spring flowers are finally blooming. This last weekend, my roommate and I spent most of our Saturday morning cleaning up our garden, so to prepare for planting this week. We’re hoping that the freezing season is officially over. Also, my local neighborhood association met up… Read More

Hello friends, I am back home in Minnesota. I arrived 3 days ago. As I write, I am sitting in my family’s porch, enjoying the view of the lake. It’s a sunny, hot morning. I can hear the bees flying about, foraging for pollen and nectar. The birds are chirping and the red-wing-black-birds are squawking. I can also hear crickets and frogs. These are the benefits of living next to a marsh… Read More

Hello friends, I’m finally here. I’m in Ireland. This country is my family’s homeland. My heritage is from county Cork. Today I’ll be going to countryside, to see the rolling green hills. But before i tell you that, let me tell you my Dublin experience, eh? We arrived by ferry to Dublin’s port. The ferry was the nicest ship I’ve ever been on, it was almost like a floating hotel. I was… Read More
