The ‘Burgh

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.   Probably most known for being the home of the Steelers. For me, it was the first ‘big city’ I ever went to. I was eighteen, fresh out of high school and ready for adventure. So, when your friends ask you if you want to go on a fifteen hour road-trip to Pennsylvania,…

Two Ukes Take On Costa Rica

Two best friends + Two little ukuleles = Four weeks of adventure     When I decided to bring my ukulele on my trip to Costa Rica this summer, I had no idea the impact it would have on me. I simply thought that I was bringing it in case I had some extra time…

Under the Roman Pines

Italia. The country that stole my heart. How is it possible that I felt so at home in a place where I couldn’t speak the language? I’ll tell you how. Sometimes, we don’t need words to connect to people. Sometimes all it takes is smile, a kind gesture, or the famous cheek-kisses every time someone…

New Years in Rome

                                                         Tre! Due! Uno! BUON ANNO! I wish I could say that I spent my New Year’s celebration partying the night away in a crowd of people in…

Just Buy the Damn Pants

If you’re a young girl in the United States (and probably many other places in the world) then you know that we have been taught our whole lives that we have to fit into a certain box – whether it’s having the nicest clothes, newest phone or smallest waist. This is a very unfortunate thing,…

Sometimes You Can’t Go Back

Sometimes you can’t go back. You can’t go back to that relationship, to that friendship, to that version of yourself. Things happen; a breakup, a fight, someone moves away or maybe you’re just simply too busy to see one another. So, you learn to live without them. Slowly, little by little, things start to change….

The Odyssey

Do you ever see a picture of yourself from a few months ago, or even a year, and you feel like it’s from a different lifetime? Like, you almost can’t recognize the person in the photo even though you still wear the same face? It’s like looking through the tired eyes of someone who has…

When a Woman Cuts Her Hair

When a woman changes her hair, whether it’s new bangs, subtle highlights, or in my case, a pixie cut, it usually means whatever she was doing before just isn’t getting the job done anymore. Most women would agree that hair is not something to be messed with. That’s why when we go in for a…

¿Qué Soy?

Una cara sin reconocimiento La boca sin voz Una lengua del pasado La piel quemada del sol Con piernas, fuertes y desgastadas Orejas que oyen el grito de hambre Con manos indefensas y atadas Ojos que lloran por el pobre Soy la mente que anhela la educación Pies para llevarme a prosperidad Soy el ceño…
