Chance Happenings

When you look back on things, how many times have you come across coincidences? Often? Maybe even too often? Or not ever at all? To be quiet honest, I am a true believer in karma and all things superstitious…well I mean all in the loosest sense. Sometimes I can’t help but to give in to

Invisible Bonds.

I feel like Carrie Bradshaw right now when she reflects upon her most recent actions and writes about it to tell the world. Except here, I write to you – my fellow tribe members and potential tribe members – about my experiences that the tribe has opened up to me. Tonight, however, I am writing

Recap of the DC semester

One of the best semesters yet. You’ve got to love the William & Mary experience and the picturesque campus, but being a W&M student in the city is definitely an experience. I highly recommend every student to check out the semester themes that the W&M in Washington program offers and to apply if anything seems

The wild monkeys, beautiful extravagant birds, the sun, and the love for all of this that everyone shares.

The Hunt for Internships!

As the summer and beach season begins, so does my hunt for securing a fall internship! Though I have a good two months’ time to make sure this happens, it’s not something to put off for sure.
