It’s Berlin, Baby

Since I’ve been home for over a week now, I figured I should probably get this post up. Whoops. My bad. Although, seeing as I’m still waking up before the sun decides to shine, I think I’m entitled to be a little sluggish on the whole blogging about Berlin situation.

I’m not going to take you through a day-by-day recount of the entire trip because it was for school. This was not vacation. This was Jordyn trying to remain sane while 100 years of German history is being shoved into her brain in 18 days. What I’m going to share with you all is the stuff I did alone! The things I did that had nothing to do with the whole schooling situation, because let’s be honest… I already forgot most of that anyways.  Continue reading “It’s Berlin, Baby”

On Set at Baywatch

Have you ever wondered if The Rock is as tall in person as he appears on TV? Well, let me answer that question for you: he is. And Zac Efron looks just as good in person as he does on TV. These are the things I learned when my spring break happened to be during the filming of the new Baywatch movie in March of 2016. You all know I’m super into this kind of thing, so this was a dream come true for me. I had planned to share this post the day the movie premiered, which is May 25, but I will be in Berlin with limited wifi and no laptop.

Surprise! It’s dropping early.

So you want to be happy?

Ok so I’m going to try something new and give you guys advice. I feel wildly unqualified to do so, but I’m doing it anyway.

If you know me personally, and have known me for a while now, you probably have noticed a significant change in my personality lately. It’s like I graduated high school and BOOM! The Jordyn I had spent the past 17 years being got a glow up. I didn’t realize the root of the change until recently, and since I now know, for the most part, why my life took this AMAZING 180, I figured I should share it with all of you.  Continue reading “So you want to be happy?”

PaleyFestLA: Grey’s Anatomy

Hey guys! I’m writing this post from LA because I promised you a PaleyFest post! I don’t know if you all know what that is, so I guess I’ll run it down for you real quick. PaleyFest is basically a panel discussion with the casts of popular TV shows. They will air a new episode at the beginning and then the cast comes out for the panel part. At the end, it’s a mad dash (for those with orchestra seats) to the front of the stage for autographs and selfies. That’s about how it goes.

I attended the PaleyFest for Grey’s Anatomy this past Sunday and I know you’re all waiting to hear all about it.  Continue reading “PaleyFestLA: Grey’s Anatomy”

Book Review: Lunch in Paris

I bought this book yesterday thinking it would be a good one to take with me on the six hour plane ride I have coming up in three weeks. Well, seeing as I’m writing a review for it less than 24 hours after its purchase, that didn’t happen. You would think that, by now, I would know not to buy the “plane book” until 20 minutes before the flight, but here we are again. (Also, airports charge approximately $468 for a book and a bottle of water so there’s that.)

I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover or whatever, but that’s what I did. The sketch design caught my eye as soon as I walked in the store. Also, I’m a sucker for anything about travel in memoir form. If you haven’t read We’ll Always Have Paris, you need to do that. But this review isn’t about that book, so here we go.
