  • They looked at me like I was seven feet tall and bright green, shot down from a flying saucer in a beam of light right before their very eyes.

  • Ever since I first had a taste of traveling, I’ve had wanderlust. My parents and I have been lucky enough to explore many states on vacations; this summer I had the privilege to discover the majestic sights in Alaska. We stayed in Dimond Center Hotel in Anchorage our first night. This hotel was...

  • I went to New York with a mission, and ended up with four coins. Through a turn of fate, my dad took his new wife and pursued graduate studies in University Wisconsin Milwaukee. My sister and I would be born there as they remained in Wisconsin. While I am proud to call myself a Wisconsinite, I...
