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
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!
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!

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
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

About 7 months ago, I dropped the best video of my existence (in my opinion anyways) - The R Word. If you've been following, you know sometimes I write about more controversial topics, but this was next level. Not only is it "controversial", but it was my first spoken word performance. While I've always been… Continue reading I’m a Finalist!!
