Amsterdam: Havin’ Fun on Week One

So, my flight got delayed. This means I missed the flight to Amsterdam and had to reschedule another one. After 9 exhausting hours in a plane, my big toenail was knocked off by a piece of luggage the moment I got off the bus. Like it was literally just laying on the ground beside of… Continue reading Amsterdam: Havin’ Fun on Week One

Going to Church with President 39

My boyfriend and I have a list. This list is referred to as simply "The List". The List is comprised of things we want to do together at one point or another; including lofty goals such as a coffee and bagel date in NYC and more obtainable goals for broke college kids, like a Goodwill date.

Putting the Fun in Fundraising

I'm studying in Amsterdam this summer! In typical Callie fashion, I made this impulse decision less than eight months from the day I would be departing from the states and six months from the time I needed to begin paying.

A Tapestry of Me Book Club: Yes, I’m Already Slacking on My New Years Resolution

Yep, I'm that person. Unfortunately, I am here to report that I did not finish my book for the month of February. Maybe it's because I had three days less than every other month or maybe it's because I started binge watching multiple shows on Netflix.

A Tapestry of Me Book Club: Killing Yourself to Live by Chuck Klosterman

Imagine it: a book written in 2003 where a guy owns 2,233 CDs and takes 600 of them on a cross country road trip because he is unsure of how to hook up his new iPod to his car. For some of my readers, that probably doesn't sound too unfamiliar. But for people like my… Continue reading A Tapestry of Me Book Club: Killing Yourself to Live by Chuck Klosterman

Happy New Year!

How lucky am I to say that another year has passed? I'm a little late on posting this, but to be honest I've not had the time to sit down and write (for about a month, actually)! Every year I like to reflect on the past 365 days with gratitude, regardless of what has happened. And… Continue reading Happy New Year!
