Cutie Tie

Somehow, I only have two finals out of my five classes. ¬†I feel pretty lucky, except I have MANY final papers. ¬†I’m currently working on my second to last paper for my ethics class and I’m just about dying doing so. ¬†Philosophy is not for everyone, and I believe I am the perfect example. ¬†Thinking…

The hood makes you look kinda like a duck,…

Peace, Love, Rowing

If you asked my dad 5 years ago which of his two daughters would he think would be participating in a sport on the collegiate level, he would have HANDS DOWN said my sister.

No Singing in the Rain

It’s raining again here in DC.  Yuck.  I had a mini debate this morning about whether to wear Wellies vs. Bean Boots.  I chose my J. Crew Wellies, because I plan on wearing my Bean Boots to crew practice.  I hate having to walk to class balancing my laptop, cellphone, tote bag, umbrella, etc. Speaking…
