Wrapping Up My Cross Country Move with U-Pack

December 29th, 2011 - 4:58 PM

What's the hardest thing about moving across the country? Besides figuring out how to keep your plants alive and remembering where you packed the bottle opener (keep it in your purse – you'll thank me later).

Some might say that packing sends them into a frenzy, or maybe it's figuring out the logistics – apartment hunting from 2,000 miles away is kind of a pain. But for me, the hardest part is always the first step: getting quotes from movers.

My U-Pack Moving Road Trip - Part 2

December 27th, 2011 - 5:04 PM

I have officially been living in Chicago for two weeks. A few U-Pack boxes still decorate my apartment, but for the most part I'm settled and adjusting to the winter weather. I've reconnected with a lot of family and friends and had a chance to fill them in on my road trip out here. The drive out to California was a bit of a whirlwind - we drove straight through without stopping - but this time we made sure to stop. The convenience of not traveling with a truck-load of stuff provided me and my mom with the freedom to take the scenic route and stop whenever (and wherever) our hearts desired.

Cities with Impressive Holiday Displays

December 14th, 2011 - 11:07 AM
I love the holiday season. There's just something that feels magical about this time of year— the parades, festivals, parties and twinkling holiday lights all around town. Who doesn't love that! I may be the only one who didn't realize this, but did you know there are only 11 days until Christmas?! That means, if you haven't been out to enjoy the holiday festivities and lights in your area, now's the time!

Four months ago I did something kind of crazy: I quit my full-time job to pursue a lucrative career as a freelance writer. Why did I quit my full-time job with benefits in a beach-front office at a promising tech startup? Because I fell out of love with Los Angeles.

Cities With The Highest College Student Population

November 16th, 2011 - 2:01 PM

Most high school students beginning their college search will probably tell you that there's a little more to choosing a college than just educational opportunities (much to their parents chagrin).  They might even tell you that while the campus is a hugely important decision-maker, the surrounding city is just as important.  The college experience reaches far beyond the classroom walls— students care about what there is to do off-campus too.
