Labor Day Thoughts

When I was first hired by , every day was a dream. I was so happy to have a job, to be working, I was willing to do anything around the office. I imagined my life would be a lot like Anne Hathaway’s in The Devil Wears Prada, picking up Harry Potter books and coffee … Read More

Finding Boat Safety

With the arrival of the much anticipated film, Finding Dory, it takes me back to 2003 when I was but 10 years old and singing, “Just keep swimming,” over and over after watching Finding Nemo. My parents now refuse to watch any of the “Finding Franchise” after being forced to watch it so many times … Read More

Feeling the Burn this Valentine’s Day?

Marvin Gaye is healing, Taylor Swift is crying, Kenny G is seducing, and all in the name of love. Yes, it is nearly that time of the year when roses sell for more than premium gas, when old, under-tempered chocolate is consumed by the ton, and when every person is miserable, single or not. It … Read More

Keep the Bowl Super

Full disclosure: the only football game I will watch is the Army Navy Game and that comes from years of mandatory viewings thanks to my dad, (sink Navy!). After 4 years of college, I can count on one hand how many football games I attended and I definitely never sat through all 4 quarters. But, … Read More

Powerball in Everyday Life

By now, everyone has heard about the whopping 1.3 billion dollar jackpot that is the current Powerball. The crazy notion of the American dream, getting rich quick, has drawn together a country in disbelief and anticipation, and every Wednesday and Saturday we wait with bated breath wondering just how big the pot can get. However, … Read More

Drones, Hover Boards, Lawsuits, OH MY!

I am not going to lie—when I heard that Amazon would be delivering packages via drones last year I was ecstatic. As a perpetual procrastinator, gift buying and completing errands in general happen much later than they should and holiday express shipping kills me. But, the drones never took off, much to the chagrin of … Read More

Don’t Drop the Ball this New Years

The year is winding down. Between Buzzfeed “Best Moments of 2015” articles, to Jib Jab’s “Year in Review” we have a lot to look back on and even more to look forward to. In 2016 a presidential election of massive proportions will take place, kale may no longer be a super food, and media might … Read More

Deck the Halls (but not too much)

This Christmas season will be the first one where I won’t be living with my parents. At the beginning of December coming home to a stark apartment devoid of holiday cheer left me feeling bluer than anyone who sings “The Christmas Shoes”. Growing up at home, we always had multiple Christmas trees: the kid’s tree, … Read More

Holiday Party Hard (and Safe)

It’s December which means party, after party, after party! There is just a wonderful feeling that befalls everyone when the holiday music starts playing, cookies start popping up everywhere, and the “Season of Giving” begins. Between work festivities, friend get togethers, and family fun December is a month of celebrations and merry making! But, too … Read More

Ignorance Ain’t Bliss on the Road

When I was a freshman in college I was not allowed a car on campus. So one cold night in December, during finals, a whole bunch of us wanted McDonalds, which was about 3 miles off campus down Richmond Road, the main road in Williamsburg. As none of us had cars, I volunteered to bike … Read More
