Best Friend’s Back! (and other everyday occurrences)

by Conner July 16, 2013

Wow, what a long and crazy week it has been. Other than the usual babysitting, baseball games, and tasks that fill my life daily, this last week has held some different happenings. In the last week, I have decided to get my heart pumping again and stray from yoga and standard dance technique and added [...]

A Day in Paris

by Carlyn July 15, 2013

During my last week abroad in Europe, I decided to go out with a bang. As soon as my last class ended, I hopped on a plane to Paris. As I was staying in England this summer, I had thought about how close I was to France (much closer than St. Louis, Missouri). Instead of [...]

You may already be well aware of my obsession with the Missouri Botanical Gardens, but gear up for another dose of my geeking out about it.  Not only did I recently renew my membership in preparation for the 2014 Garden season, but I finally got the chance to participate in an event that has long [...]

Beautiful Barcelona

by Carlyn July 10, 2013

Traveling from country to country in Europe is like traveling from state to state in the U.S. Since London is fairly close, I flew to Barcelona for a long weekend. I have family that lives in Barcelona, and I wanted to take advantage of that wonderful opportunity while I am abroad. I stayed with my [...]

Windshield Time

by Conner July 8, 2013

July 4th. One usually thinks fireworks, swimming, barbeques, and other festive things that occur outdoors. My holiday weekend was anything but the usual. I spent a long weekend in Gainesville, Florida. However, looking back, I think I spent more time in the car than I actually did in Florida. My sister is planning to go [...]

Carry On, Wayward Son

by Marielle July 8, 2013

Well, I must admit this post isn’t very St. Louis centered, but it does highlight another pretty cool place in Missouri – Kansas City! It’s about 5-6 hours away by train, and has some pretty cool stuff. I especially liked the farmer’s market – it’s huge! Bigger than Soulard! – and the raw/vegan/organic restaurant that I [...]

I Know You Don’t Get a Chance to Take a Break This Often…

by Carly July 8, 2013

Well, I guess it’s no secret that I never got a science internship this summer. Okay, I applied to, what, two? But I must admit, I think deep down inside, I was hoping I wouldn’t be accepted into one all along. I didn’t want to live in St. Louis all summer. I didn’t want an [...]

7 Nights Under the Stars

by Courtney July 7, 2013

Section B6, Row R, Seat 127. Since 2005, those theatrical coordinates have illustrated my whereabouts for each of seven summer Saturday nights. For those of you who are unfamiliar, The Muny is our nation’s oldest and largest outdoor theater. Situated in Forest Park, which is what I personally consider to be the heart of St. [...]
