48 Hours in Philly (only going to free attractions!)

Elfreth's Alley
It's been so much fun exploring this side of the country since I've moved to the East Coast. Will and I drove to Philadelphia for the weekend to visit some friends who live in the city, and some who live in the suburbs! I've been to Philly one other time before, but we didn't have any time to do any touristy things (except for consuming a cheesesteak). We decided to visit many places - all that do not require an admissions free!

A Trip to the Apple Orchard 🍎

Hello friends! It has been a while. Since my last post, I finished my internship and moved home, then moved back to the East Coast for a real adult job (definitely a story for another post)! Adjusting to 9-5 life has not been easy for me, especially since I spent a couple months at home applying to jobs and enjoying my last summer a little too much. So once the weekend hits, I am more than ready to relax and explore my new neighborhood.

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I drove to Silverman's Farm in Easton, CT. My manager had recommended it, and we were sure to get there bright and early to beat the rush, at around 9:30am. Thankfully, I had a doctor's appointment at 8:30am, or else we would have never gotten there that early....

Everything I Ate and Did in Boston

When I lived in Georgia two summers ago, I lived with three girls I had never met before. Fast forward to now, and we live in different parts of the country. This reunion was way overdue, and we all shared an AirBnB in the North End in Boston for the weekend! Boston was always on my list of cities to visit, and it really reminded me of Chicago because of the size and people, and also with all of the amazing food and sights to see. I was definitely not disappointed - especially with the contrast of NYC when I lived there last year, Boston was not too hectic at all.

The Best Ways to Make Money During College

Everyone has different needs on how they pay for college, but for me, it was important to have a side hustle while going to school. It helped out with my spending on food and utilities, and of course those books I didn't really need all that often. What I did every year was work a ton during the summer and winter breaks, and then just part time during the school year to focus on school and having a social life. From seeing my friends and other odd jobs, thankfully, there are many options to help pay for school.
