I like blogging about my experience at DePaul: Because I’ve always loved writing and it’s given me my own creative outlet. I’m able to share things about my life with other people, make recommendations for things to do around Chicago, rant about what I’ve been thinking, as well as give advice to future and current DePaul students.​​

My favorite blog entry was about: Bagels! The entry was titled '52 Bagels Later…'​ where I wrote about how I stood outside a brand new, DePaul-area Einstein Brothers Bagels at 5 a.m.  My entry detailed how I dragged my roommates to the bagel shop to be one of the first 100 people to enter the newly-opened store to receive a coupon for a free bagel every week for a year. My entry covered two topics important to me:  hanging out with my friends and the importance of saving money in college.​
