Triple Falls

Triple Falls Hike

photo 1The beauty of summer in the Pacific Northwest is that there are countless things that you can do outdoors. My personal favorite is hiking in the Columbia Gorge and this summer I was finally able to hike Triple Falls.

It’s not a very long hike but it was very beautiful, as is any hike in the Gorge. We went on a beautiful Saturday and due to the great weather the trail was packed with a lot of…

Let’s Be Cops - Review

Let's Be CopsOver the weekend I went to watch “Let’s Be Cops” starring Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. from New Girl and Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries.

Ever since the trailer came out I knew I wanted to go watch it, it’s rare for me to be intrigued by a comedy but because I recognized the actors I knew it was going to be a good.

The movie was hilarious!

The entire audience was laughing throughout the…

Distant Love

distanceI have never been a fan of long distance relationships, they’ve never worked for me.

I had a boyfriend in high school and although we broke up for various reasons, one was that I was going off to college in another state while he was going to the university near of our hometown.

More Bitter Than Sweet

It’s safe to say that everyone goes through a bad break up at least once in their life, not so recently this happened to me. I came to realize that after three years I was not happy and I was no longer in love.

He didn’t take it well.

I was still studying abroad at this time and it blew my mind at the things that he did and said against me. During our three years I had never seen this side of…

Book Review - Me Before You

Me Before YouLast night I finally finished reading the first book I’ve read since graduating college in May. I know I am kind of late, since it was published in 2012, but I think this review is still worthy. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from this book, I bought it on my kindle after searching over and over for something that looked interesting enough.

Cultural Difference: U.S. vs Spain

When I went to Spain to study abroad last fall I kept a mental list in my head about some of the cultural differences between Spain and the United States. I am not saying that one is better than the other, I am simply just stating the differences that I saw and experienced. This is what I came up with:

1. The water is not free – When you go to a restaurant in the U.S. the waiter usually brings…
