Baby You’re a Firework

  On a day when we celebrate what makes America great—lite beer, freedom, greasy food, and baseball—we often end the celebrations with fireworks. Our most favorite Chinese appropriated pastime, fireworks, are both beautiful and dangerous, and like moths to flames we gravitate towards those stands that pop up at the end of every June. While … 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

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

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

May I Have Some Torts Please?

What is a tort? A) The nickname for a tortoise. B) A wrongful act that can be the basis for a civil lawsuit. C) A delectable dessert, can be made with fruit or rich dark chocolate. D) Something you wrap around a body part to stop venom from spreading. If you guessed “B”, congratulations, and … Read More
