To Be A Woman

There are a few things that really infuriate me about our society and the world we live in.

Maybe it was the time, while I was growing up, that I was walking with my mom in downtown Los Angeles and a man cat called her while my dad was only a few steps in front of us, but lately I have noticed how much women are objectified by men.

Grateful

Today something tragic happened. I found out that a girl that I graduated died in a car accident.

She was an acquaintance. I knew her because she interviewed me for the study abroad program and she was in charge of the meetings that we attended once we got accepted.

My friend Sarah texted me and told me what happened to her. When I saw that text a knot formed in my throat, my hear sank, my eyes…

Gravy

This post has been a long time coming…

This is no secret but I thought I would mention it either way:

I LOVE BRUNCH!!!!!

While I was living with my parents we often had brunch during the weekends, but it wasn’t until I moved away to college that I really discovered BRUNCH.

Portland has so many wonderful and delicious places for brunch, but my all time favorite is Gravy.

The Maze Runner - Review

Last night I was lucky enough to go watch an advanced screening of the movie hr_The_Maze_Runner_24“The Maze Runner” I got the complimentary tickets through gofobo, a free website that gives away tickets.

As someone who never read the book, I really enjoyed the movie. I went in knowing nothing about it and I was really taken by surprise.

“The Maze Runner” is about a group of boys that live in “The Glade” that is…

Triple Falls

Triple Falls Hike

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…
