A Round of Applause… (pt. 4)

There’s been a lot of great content put out by all my classmates, but let’s take a hot sec to give a special shout out to 2 blog posts I thought were truly blog-tastic (sorry, not sorry).  5 Tips For Living With Your Non-Single Roommate By Brooke, Listicles The overall concept of Brooke’s blog, a…

The Blog Where I Peaked (pt. 3)

Out of all my blogs this semester, I’d have to say my best blog hands down was my adventure at the Boston Public Market when I was home for fall break. Here’s an infographic with the top 5 reasons why I found this post to be my peak this semester.

The thorn, the stem, the rose (pt. 2)

Well I just looked at my first blog post and saw that the most fancy thing about it was the italicization I used for some emphasis. That’s cute. I’m glad to see I’ve come a long way in my pieces, or else I’d be concerned that I didn’t actually learn anything in this class. Let’s…

#SMPASOCIAL Wrap-Up with Leonardo DeCaprio (pt 1)

For those following at home, this blog has been a part of a semester long class assignment to write on whatever I want. For me, that meant local food. This next post is a reflection on the semester’s course through analysis of classmates’ tweets and blogs. So even though you won’t be getting any food…

DC Creators & Disruptors at Union Market

This weekend, my friend and I headed over to Union Market to explore food options for brunch. It was her first time there and I hadn’t been in a while, so I didn’t know what to expect – especially around the holidays. Union Market has been around since 1931, originally launching as a outdoor food market….

The One Where They Have Friendsgiving

Tis’ the season for overeating and healthy doses of holiday movies. In anticipation for heading home for Thanksgiving to celebrate awkward family interactions and catching up with Netflix, it’s important to take the time to be thankful for those around you at school. Cooking a meal with your friends is a great way of bonding over…

For meat lovers and clean freaks.

Since my past few posts on my adventures at the Boston Public Market and my wine tasting focused heavily on the “farm” aspect of my explorations, this week is going to be dedicated to the dorm aspect. How do you make a luxurious and truly satisfying meal when you’re a college student without much time…

My Local’s Local: Boston Public Market

For me, fall break was an opportunity to reconnect with my favorite season. No offense to those who find Kogan’s couple of leaves crumpled on the ground as a majestic miracle of fall, but you ain’t seen nothing until you’ve experienced a New England fall. I was supposed to originally go with my boyfriend to…

What does it mean to be local?

I was able to venture over to Eastern Market this past weekend and pick up some fresh produce for my homemade brunch adventures. If you haven’t had the chance to adventure out the the market place there, it’s totally worth it. It’s always one of my favorite places to escape Foggy Bottom because the quaint…

Carbs Can Be Local Too

I’m currently writing this blog post, on a Monday morning, the day after it’s due, with a bowl of leftover Pad Thai in bed. I slept through my alarm and missed my 9:35AM class. So that’s how organized I’ve been this week so far. I apologize in advance that not all photos included in this…

Tis’ the Season

After a week almost entirely dedicated to studying for a finance test that I still did mediocre on, I didn’t think I’d honestly have the energy to make a nicely plated meal. But I couldn’t let this acorn squash wait much longer and I was ready to treat myself to my first *fall* meal.  …
