The Ultimate Fall Break Recap

Since starting my break with the Japanese Breakfast concert, I’ve been on blog hiatus enjoying time with friends and family in Philly, Ridgewood, NYC, and Toronto.

A Visit to My Vassar Sister (kind of)

Obligatory Fall Break Post

Fall break is finally upon us! Let us bask in this week of no classes until midterms (part 2) hit us again…

What do Mawrters do over fall break? Some of us study, some of us don’t. Some of us go home or travel, some of us can’t. Some of us have to stay on campus because those taking UPenn classes still have class. Some of us have to stay on campus because they live too far away. Most of us are happy it’s fall break.
