Spring Break

For spring break I travelled with a friend to visit our other friend in New Jersey who graduated last year. We spent a few days hanging out with her and just lounging around her house before spending three days in New York City. We caught the train in every day which was perfectly fine by me

Making connections

Something I love about Allegheny is the number of opportunities that this college offers you; in particular the number of people you get to meet and the incredible opportunities to form connections and sometimes even friendships. One example of this was the “Welcome the Stranger” journalism conference that Allegheny hosted a few weeks back. Students

International Wing Open House

This was a super cool event we hosted in the International building the weekend before Spring break. It was run by the Phi Sigma Iota the language honors society. Each house was allocated a certain budget and we had to provide some traditional food and an activity for people to do. The food from all

Learning to ask for help

I like to say I’m a pretty independent person: when it comes to certain things I prefer to be able to do a lot of stuff on my own. One thing that was a huge learning curve for me throughout the first two months especially, was that I had to learn how to ask for help; because

An ode to brunch

Can we all just stop and take a minute to appreciate brunch. Brunch is 100% my favourite meal: It combines the best part of breakfast with the freedom of the hours of lunch, which basically means you can eat all the best part of breakfast until 2pm and no-one can judge you for it. To

Finals Basketball

Although my season on court ended over months ago, I’ve spent the last three and a bit months going to (nearly) every practice and game, and so although I haven’t been playing, I still have very much been part of Allegheny College’s Women’s basketball team. And this last week reassured me, why I stuck around.

Learning to Bike

You walk before you run and apparently when you’re recovering from ACL surgery you bike before you can walk. I first got on the bike on day 15 and it was a very exciting time. It wasn’t until my third session that I could (relatively) comfortably get a full circle and start actually ‘riding’ the bike:
