I find that the best way to get off campus while still being productive is to go to a coffee shop, homework in tow. One of the most elegant destinations would probably be the French café Miel (French for honey). Fittingly, the café is a honey color, with bee door handles and honeycomb patterns throughout.
Philadelphia—the city with an unlimited array of restaurants. . . . But where to start? Something quick? Something fancy? Something relaxing? Philadelphia has it all. It is best to explore and stumble upon a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant. You may be surprised. But, yes, Yelp and Trip Advisor are helpful.
I returned home for Fall Break and took a walk in the woods.
There are many ways to cross Philadelphia if you are heading from the Rittenhouse Square area to the Old City. Chestnut Street and Walnut Street are among the most common routes. They are always bustling with people and filled with activities. If you wanted something a little quieter—a stroll after lunch, perhaps—go for Pine Street.

Thursday it rained all day and into the early evening. It was a soft rain but the sky was dark and the winds brutal. The result was several orphaned umbrellas lying in the streets. Fall had finally come.
On that same Thursday night, under the warm bright lights of the Kimmel Center, the Philadelphia Orchestra was joined by the Westminster Symphonic Choir to perform Mozart’s Mass in C-minor. Another triumph for the orchestra and for Yannick. I am beginning to wonder if Yannick will not glance at a music score this entire season.
