The purpose of life is a life of purpose.– Robert Bryne At this very moment in time… My kitchen is completely cleared out for remodeling the next two days. My trash is empty. My laundry is done. My room is clean. My dinner and late night snack is eaten. My vitamins have been taken. My bills have been paid. My mailbox is empty,...
Just when I think I have everything figured out, I realize it is impossible to have everything figured out. Just when I think I am finally happy, something comes along to make me question my bliss. Aristotle once said, “A friend to all is a friend to none.” I agree wholeheartedly. Close friends need to nurture close friends.
I wish people would realize that sometimes I need motivation from others as well. I feel often times that I am responsible to motivate others, as well as myself, all by myself… Spring break I am ready for you. Although I am sad to say goodbye to my favorite month of the year. Until next year, February <3

My Belated New Year's Resolution
I’m one month late but… My new year’s resolution is to quit saying, “No problem.” Hyatt has taught me that this is incorrect to say to our guests. And in what way can I make my life more easier than to start saying the proper things in everyday language, even if it is just that simple response to others’ gratitude for me, my actions, thoughts, and services? ...

The highlight of 2012 for me would have to be this summer that I spent in Cambridge, Maryland. It decided my future with an amazing hotel company and I met some of the best people in my life that will surely stay in it. I often think of the memories from this summer and miss it so much. Tonight I will be ringing in a new year, a big year for me. It’s my graduation year—my big leap...
It is so weird to think about where I am in my life today. Last night, I got to hang out with almost all of my high school friends that went to senior week with me after graduating high school…we are now seniors in college! When did that even happen? It was crazy to hear what we were all looking forward to after graduation. We have each ventured through such different journeys with many...
All moved out of Cambridge and at home sweet home now (: Never thought I’d miss being in Cambridge but I do very much already and I miss all of my new friends. So many people have touched my heart in the last two weeks. I felt so many emotions it is unbelievable. Thank you to everyone who have made me feel so valued this summer. In less than a week I’ll be moving into my new...
I’ve found and confirmed that first impressions mean absolutely nothing.
My mom came to visit me today. I haven’t seen her since May 20! I didn’t realize how much I missed her until she came and left today ): She sewed and ironed all the clothes I’ve accumulated here as a result of my retail therapy. No one else in this world can compare to the woman that I call my mother. My internship has been really great. When a guest gives up all power to...
I finished orientation today. I am officially all settled in and unpacked at my smashing summer home in Cambridge, MD. My roommate is so great and my hotel is absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful. Tomorrow is my first official day at work. I am working in the Rooms Department, specifically in Guest Services. Beyond excited for my internship to officially kick off!
I moved out of Beaver Plaza today…it’s been home to me for 2 life-changing years. I’m sad but I’m ready for the next chapter of my life. It’s good to be home sweet home. My parents are the greatest gift in my life I am so lucky to call them mine.
The sorrow of the faithful is not that of permanent loss, but the tender sense...– It is a very sad day. I mourn for the loss of Beverly’s mother. I wish to let Beverly know that her NSMH family is here for her at this very sad time of her life. An unimaginative event that no one wishes to experience but may her life be celebrated with grace.
