2018: Work Hard, but Play Harder

2016 was all about traveling. 2017 was all about learning to take a break. 2018, I decided, was about pushing myself to my limits and proving that I did not graduate from college for nothing. At the beginning of 2018, I had no idea what was in store for me. I had no plans to… Continue reading 2018: Work Hard, but Play Harder

I make it my mission to see at least one Broadway show per semester and thanks to Hofstra University Honors College, I was able to check that box early. I saw a newer play, Farinelli and the King, at the Belasco Theatre in New York. The show tells the story of how the mentally unfit… Continue reading A New London Original in NYC

Spring 2018: Not Australia

This time last year, I had just gotten back from an incredible two weeks in London and was preparing to study abroad in Australia. It is absolutely crazy to me to think that was my life just 12 months ago. Believe me, I want it back! However, I cannot dwindle on the past. I am… Continue reading Spring 2018: Not Australia

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Tash Sultana

I am no longer physically in Australia, but I would like to say my trip was extended until October 5th, when I saw Melbourne native Tash Sultana perform at The Brooklyn Steel. After falling in love with her music and seeing her at Groovin’ the Moo music festival in Australia last semester, my roommate Sierra… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Tash Sultana

Fall Concert Series: Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood has the most effortless voice in the world. You won't catch me listening to country music very often, but Carrie is an exception to all the laws of the universe. Honestly, she might not even be human; she is more like an angel. I recall my nine-year-old self watching Carrie on American Idol and rooting… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Carrie Underwood

MTV Video Music Awards 2016: First Thoughts

The VMAs has been dubbed as the “superbowl for pop music” and may be one of the most controversial award shows out there (flashback to Miley Cyrus’ 2013 performance with Robin Thicke). I was lucky enough to attend the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. I… Continue reading MTV Video Music Awards 2016: First Thoughts

From the Big Blue to the Concrete Jungle

On the water in the morning and by afternoon, walking through a bustling fair on 8th Street, NYC. That was my Saturday. If that could be my life regularly, that would be one successful life. A trip to NYC is not something I will write about often, as I attend school on Long Island and frequently… Continue reading From the Big Blue to the Concrete Jungle
