Discoveries for the Market Devotee

Monday, September 16, 2013

Good Morning,Today marks the end of my weekend and surprisingly, I feel both relaxed and energized. With my roommate gone for the weekend, I took some time to go out on my own and find some markets I had heard were great. I would definitely describe myself as a “market girl”, but I’d proudly take the title of “foodie” (well, mostly desserts) as well.

How to Make Friends Without Your Voice

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Good morning first-time readers,It was one week ago that my mom and I had the car jam-packed and we set off for my big move to Washington, D.C. I had so many ideas and expectations constructed in my head, about what it would be like here at TWC (The Washington Center). One thing I can admit to you this morning is that things are not always what they seem -- in my case, they are better.
