ALYSSA IN THE U.S.A. (Part 4): Orlando

Merry Christmas everybody! I’ve been in such extreme holiday-mode lately that it’s taken me how long to tell this seven-part American tale?! Hey, at least it’s making the trip drag out in my mind, even though in reality there’s been a whole semester between then and now. Get ready to read about 92% Disney World, 3% candied almonds, 1% … Continue reading

ALYSSA IN THE U.S.A. (Part 3): Memphis

ALYSSA IN THE U.S.A. (Part 3): Memphis

I submitted my last two assignments of the year on Friday (!!!!), so this Sunday off has sent me kind of loopy with liberty and endless possibilities. Tried looking at the course handbook to decide my classes for next year, but that was too overwhelming for my day off, so I’m going to tell you guys about our two days … Continue reading

ALYSSA IN THE U.S.A (Part 2): Nashville!

Let me tell you about my favourite place in the world, where the grass is green, everyone is so lovely, the locals say “y’all” (I swear I had a crush on just about every boy I met or overheard in Nashville), people wear boots and country music is everywhere.

Waiter

My friends and I wanted to be awesome and have lunch together so today we went and we lunched. Erika wore a chunky red scarf that she had knitted in high school that narrowed from one end to the other and had several holes in it where she’d dropped a stitch — details I would … Continue reading

How To Watch Pretty Little Liars

There’s nothing more terrifying, mysterious and addictive than spending a night in Rosewood, PA., the secret and drama capital of Television. My sister, my friend Lucie and I are all huge fans of Pretty Little Liars. I’ve found that the best way to watch this show is to get really into it. I’m talking plan … Continue reading

Gatsby, Satay Sauce and Teachers With Lego

On Friday, my friends and I went out to celebrate Lauren’s birthday. It was raining incessantly, and by the time we got to the restaurant the entire group was soaked and slightly frizzy-haired. At dinner, we created a game called “Satay Surprise!”, which involved slopping satay sauce onto the unsuspecting victim’s hand, into their mouth … Continue reading
