Winter is Here!

  I love snow more than most people. When it begins to flurry outside I’m the first to run out and frolic in the flakes, often miming Lucy from Charlie Brown about the various flavors of snowflakes depending on the month. This past week we have been bombarded with news and warnings of Winter Storm … 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

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

If You Post It- They Will Win

If You Post It- They Will Win We’ve all heard the warnings: “Don’t post that to Facebook, everyone can see it.” In this day of instant gratification of information it is not uncommon for employers, clients, significant others, family, and friends to “stalk” others on social media. That picture of you with a lamp shade … Read More

Seriously, Trick or Treat?

This past Saturday I was lazing on my couch watching a plethora of scary horror films in commemoration of Halloween. After a long day I just wanted to kick back with a beer and question the creaks of my apartment, assuming a murderer was lurking around every corner. But then I heard a soft knock … Read More

A Brief History of Time

It’s getting to that point in the year when the days are shorter, darker, and colder. But there is a light at the end of this tunnel- DAYLIGHT SAVINGS (DST). That one day of the year where we get to “Fall Back” and gain an hour of precious, precious slumber.   A little history about … Read More

Spooktacular Evenings Done Right

The big day is almost here. You’ve been hoarding your Costco sized bag of candy away from your own children for weeks, you’ve been sewing, hot gluing, duct taping together costumes for yourself and your children, and ABC Family has been playing Hocus Pocus and The Addams Family on repeat. Visions and memories of knocking … Read More

Be Careful What You Wish For

Every single day I go through a mini panic attack when I get back home to my apartment. The worry that courses through my veins comes from the anxiety of parallel parking, something that has been taken out of the modern driver’s education program. Sure, I’ve listened to my parents explain the process and read … Read More
