Day 130 – Europe in my 30’s

Day 135 – My Rant on Student Loans

  Student loan is one topic that I get impassioned about because a) I have student loans and b) because it affects so many people. I recently submitted my 2 cents to PBS Newshour where they requested input for “Has student loan debt affected your life?” When I saw this, I wanted to scream and […]

Day 136 – Kitchen Therapy – Homemade Yogurt Crock Pot

So, when I first came across this post on the girl’s guide to guns and butter about making homemade crock pot yogurt, I had to try it. Homemade yogurt is different from […]
