Boston on a Sunny Saturday:

Below is my favorite photo I was able to snap on an empty street in Beacon Hill. Normally, Acorn Street is packed with tourists and “instagram models” on sunny spring afternoons. Today, it was absolutely empty and it was absolutely amazing. I’ve always wanted to just take some dang pictures of it without a ton of people in the background- today I got my wish. Check out more pictures of my Beacon Hill adventure here!


Well, it’s taken a global pandemic to encourage me to actually write a new blog post. Today’s topic- the Italian health care system and my personal experience!

I unfortunately got emergency surgery in Italy in 2018, so this will for sure be an interesting read! Click here!

Shana Butler, B.S.B.A

Recently, I graduated from my home-away-from-home, Stonehill College. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Accounting. I’m sad it’s over, but I’m extremely excited to start this new chapter in my life. I decided to decorate my grad cap saying “No, I can’t do your taxes” and I naturally glued it sideways…. oops.

Me and all of my college roommates!
