Planet Mac...

When you closed your doors in September, a part of me died...

It wasn't until last month that I discovered you had vacated...

...and I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye...

Now, where will I go to satisfy my late night mac and cheese cravings in Hoboken??

But let me focus on the wonderful memories you gave me...

The biggest challenge was always picking which Mac and Cheese dish to order...

"Lobster Mac" or "Vodka Tomato Cream?" "Bacon Cheeseburger" or "Margarita?" (welp)

After racking my brain to decide, I always made sure to order the "Jupiter" size to have enough to bring home for leftovers.

As I wait for my cheesy macaroni, the anticipation builds and builds...

Finally, my Mac and Cheese arrives in all its glory...

I take the first bite and...



And during my last meal with you, my friends and I left happy (AND FULL) with plans to return...

Word has it that they're replacing you with a hip ramen noodle joint...

Even if their noodles are good, they can't replace the joy you brought to New Jersey's mac and cheese lovers...

But you will always have a special place in my heart...




Did you ever get to try Planet Mac's macaroni and cheese in Hoboken before it closed? Or did you go somewhere else for your mac and cheese fix? Tweet me your thoughts and stories @missjulia1207!

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

I have had the opportunity to visit so many places in my lifetime, and recently one of those places was Nashville, Tennessee. There is so much to do and see in Nashville but here are some of my favorites that I would highly recommend.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
