4 months since breaking my wrist

I can't believe it's already been 4 months since I broke my wrist. I had learned 5 things in just over a week after my injury, so imagine all the things I've learned since then! If you don't know, mid-July I broke my wrist playing volleyball practicing for a tournament. I broke my radius (thumb… Continue reading 4 months since breaking my wrist

2nd Annual Homeless Care Package Project!

Last year I initiated a project making homeless care packages to give out to people on the streets in Connecticut. I raised almost $1500, made 48 backpacks, and supported 2 charities in addition to handing bags out. I received a lot of positive feedback and participation, so I'm ecstatic that we are BACK for Year… Continue reading 2nd Annual Homeless Care Package Project!

Day 4: My last day in Chicago

My flight isn’t until this evening so I’m headed downtown to see if I can hang out at Riverwalk. It’s pretty much the only thing I haven’t gotten to see yet that I wanted to, and that’s probably all I will have time for today anyways. There’s a bus at 9:12 coming so I wake… Continue reading Day 4: My last day in Chicago

Day 3: Art, Fields, and Views!

Nowadays I don’t get as many steps in as I’d like to and given that I walked nearly 9 miles yesterday, my body is feeling it. However, it was blissful to be able to somewhat sleep in (until 8am) after such a long day. Today wasn’t as packed full of things to do as yesterday,… Continue reading Day 3: Art, Fields, and Views!

After about 5 hours of sleep, I was up and at ‘em getting ready to take on downtown Chicago!

Drysol Antiperspirant + My Experience

A brand reached out to me on Instagram months ago asking if I would be interested in trying out their anti-perspirant lotions for hands, feet, and thighs. I, as someone who most definitely sweats, completely agreed. Long story short, after 2 months of using it daily (they do say twice a day), it unfortunately didn't… Continue reading Drysol Antiperspirant + My Experience

5 things I learned after breaking my wrist as an adult

Not gonna lie, of all the injuries I ever thought or would’ve seen myself getting from volleyball, I have to say a broken wrist was never one. Especially two days before I was supposed to play in, what I would call, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play in a tournament as a hitter. I say once… Continue reading 5 things I learned after breaking my wrist as an adult
