Do You Know Who Your Real Friends Are?

Friendship is a topic I have previously talked about on here. It’s something I thought about a lot as I graduated from school and prepared to officially start my career. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: I have some of the best, most loyal friends. However, I don’t think that’s too… Continue reading Do You Know Who Your Real Friends Are?

Advice from Someone Who is Done with School Forever

Last year I urged people to explore the unknown, work relentlessly towards their goals and to never forget to have fun. That was after I completed my bachelor’s degree at Hofstra University. Now, I have finished the master’s portion of my education, and I am officially done with school forever (insert long breath of relief… Continue reading Advice from Someone Who is Done with School Forever

Do You Know the Name of Taylor Swift’s New Album?

While this blog is mostly about travel, I do have my little entertainment section. I haven’t posted in this section for much too long, but that’s because I was writing bi-weekly celebrity-related content for Her Campus, an online collegiate magazine. However, my college days are now over, so I can direct my entertainment writing back… Continue reading Do You Know the Name of Taylor Swift’s New Album?

LA Day 9: That’s a Wrap!

Our final da in L.A. was the perfect combination of networking and fun. We started the day off at one of ABC’s lots, where we received an in-depth analysis of how they marketed and created content for The Bachelor.

LA Day 8: Networking Day into Night

On our sixth day of networking the professionals gave to me…more knowledge! We started off the rainiest day yet at one of the top four talent agencies in L.A., ICM,  although it looked like an art museum instead.

LA Day 7: Life Lessons Learned

I stayed on Earth today, but that does not mean day five of networking was any less than incredible. The first meeting was with the senior vice president of the Gaumont Film Company, a French-established film studio, and her colleagues.

LA Day 6: To Heaven and Back

Day four of networking proved to be my favorite yet, starting with brunch at the iconic Bobby’s Big Boy (the oldest standing one of the chain) followed by our first meeting at CBS. I was at CBS on Friday with the vice president of daytime programming, but today’s meeting was right up my alley: we… Continue reading LA Day 6: To Heaven and Back
