Boston has a special place in my heart — it’s home to my beloved Red Sox, and it’s one of the first cities I can remember going to as a kid. Boston and New York taught me to love the wild rush that is life, and made me want to move to a city someday. […]
Let me preface this post by saying that I am Celiac, so my condition is a bit more extreme than someone who is intolerant, or who chooses to be gluten free for health reasons. I have to worry about cross-contamination down to the extreme — such as finding places that handle your food in a […]
If you make it to Yosemite, I highly recommend that you do the Upper Yosemite Falls hike. It may be the equivalent of climbing the Empire State Building multiple times, but it’s beautiful and entirely worth the sweat. Yosemite Falls is the tallest waterfall in North America, and this hike gets you up close and […]
While California is certainly full of things to do and see, I don’t think anything comes close to hiking in Yosemite National Park. Take it from someone who has spent considerable time wandering around the state this year — Yosemite is worth whatever means you have to take to get there. For us, “means” meant […]
Paris is a city talked about with an Instagram filter on it. It is highly romanticized, edited, and photoshopped. If you have never been, you probably picture yourself strolling the Seine with a crepe in hand or taking a selfie with the Eiffel Tower. You picture yourself in galleries in castles or observing the slow-paced life from […]
This is a letter to anyone who hasn’t considered traveling — especially 20-somethings. Or, maybe, you considered it, and then let all of the possible risks turn you away. I wrote this to change your mind. Procrastination is the death of experience. Instead of saying yes or no, we tell ourselves “I’ll get to […]
I have a pretty good balance with feeling like I “have” to workout. I’m ok with rest days, and I know that our bodies need rest to grow. That being said, working out is how I start my day. It’s my me-time. It’s the way that I’ve woken up, de-stressed, and gotten focused every morning for […]
I’d like to start today’s post by discussing the important issues in my life. Whats up with the Pokemon Go thing? I’m so behind. I don’t actually even know what Pokemon looks like. So lets start there. I’m envisioning Mario’s outfit on a creature with four legs. Probably not even close, huh. I played with legos […]
I swear I didn’t forget I have a blog. I’ve actually been blogging almost every day if blogging can be yelling at tech support for not pushing the editor update to you so you can’t change anything on your site. I’ve done a lot of that kind of blogging. It’s emotionally draining to be angry […]
Its been soon long since I posted on here. They’ve probably released 3 new iPhones since the last time I posted. Someone probably cured cancer. Meredith Grey probably changed her mind about Derek 17 times. It’s been so long. In the hiatus, I’ve been really busy planning Europe things. Lots of important Europe things. Do you […]
Hi, I'm Moriah. With an O.
Curious Cat. Impulsive Adventurer. Dog Person. Coffee Addict. This is the un-scripted tale of my quest to make the most of my 20s, and I really want you to play a part. Do you like passport stamps, sushi, motivational quotes, vinyl records, tiny details, sarcastic humor, and that satisfying feeling of I-did-something-with-my-life-today? Were gonna go to amazing places together. (And no, you don't have to be 20!)
