The City that Never Sleeps

 Last August, my mom, my sister and I took basically an eating trip to New York City. We tried a bunch of different restaurants, and in between, we went shopping, and hung out in Times Square and Central Park. We had a sandwich at the Carnegie Deli, lunch at Momofuku ( an adorable little noodle bar in the Village), Caprese Salad in Little Italy, and rice pudding at Rice to Riches in Soho. We stopped...

Mahalo and Aloha!

 Last spring, I took a trip to Hawaii, specifically Waikiki Beach. It was so much fun, with perfect weather everyday, amazing food, and so much beach time! We went on a catamaran, hiked Diamond Head, went Shopping, went to a Luau, and saw the USS Missouri. But one of the best parts was performing for the veterans at Tripler Medical Center. They really appreciated seeing us play, and it was so nice...

In one hand I held a ratty old black fishing pole, the reel barely attached...

La Republica Dominicana

For spring break this year, I went on an ASB trip with the Pre Med Club. It was really a turning point for me. I had so much fun, and it really renewed my motivation. After the trip, I really felt a lot better about everything in my life, which was great after such a long first year of college. When I first stepped off of the plane in the airport in Santo Domingo, I was so nervous and so...

Lloviendo en Malaga

On the only day I spent in Málaga, it rained. I sat with a tiny Spanish girl and a loud, crass Spanish boy on the bus ride, as grey drizzle came down on the rolling hills that were covered in a carpet of olive trees. On that day, I spoke at most ten words of English. The rest of the time I made a brave attempt at speaking Spanish. As we filed off of the tour bus, with the Spanish students chattering...
