Currently, I am… Cooking everything. I haven’t cooked dinner regularly since 2013 (Mac was deployed in 2014. I was in grad school and Mac was constantly gone in 2015 and 2016), so I’m getting back in the habit of meal planning and prepping. Baking all sorts of stuff. I’m dusting the cobwebs off my many […]

Because you only get so much free time when you go on a coordinated trip like ours, you wind up making every little bit count. This includes late night forays to explore and photograph the sites. We popped on the tube after a dinner with some students at King’s College for our program and headed over […]
Part 1 here! These are the remaining photos from our trip to Windsor Castle.
We visited Windsor Castle. I took tons of photos and decided to split them in two posts to not overload. The Queen was home (you can see the royal standard), and photos are also not allowed in the castle. Here’s the first batch.
St. Paul’s was the first stop in our long day of London sightseeing. I originally planned to attend services here as this was a Sunday morning, but this was the only time on the trip I managed to get more than 6 hours of sleep. #whoops. Photos aren’t allowed in the cathedral itself, but you […]
One of the most iconic sites in London is Tower Bridge. After our foray in the actual Tower of London, we were at the bridge during photography’s golden hour. The light was perfect, so I snapped tons of photos from several vantage points.
Our first full day in London, we toured the Tower of London. We arrived close to the end of the day, so we hopped on the last official Beefeater tour. If you decide to visit, definitely try to do a Beefeater tour. The Beefeaters are very well-trained and knowledgeable about everything you could possible think […]
Over spring break, my graduate program went on a study abroad trip to Europe. We traveled with EF Study Abroad. Overall, we didn’t have the best experience with our tour guide, to say the least, but we still had a fun trip. We started off in London, took the Eurostar to Paris, and then finished […]
The job search these days is a long and arduous process. For most of us, gone are the days of mailing out unsolicited resumes, getting calls for multiple interviews, and picking your best option from several job offers. Several members of my graduate program cohort and I are still in the throes of finding a job, even with […]
I don’t know about y’all, but I love sending and receiving real paper mail. A nice card is a way to brighten up weeks of junk mail, credit card solicitations, and catalogues I get even though I have no idea why. I love sending moving announcements and picking out new designs whenever we move. For […]
