The Inner Workings of Our World

Cruelty, what does it mean to you. Is it the conditions under which animals are treated at the zoo? Maybe it is not getting playing time on the soccer field. Or is it a rejection from a college, boy or family member? Cruel is a word generally used to describe the worst type of person….

I Ate Cheese…

I ate cheese and it was horribly wonderful. Horrible because I no longer crave it which saddens me, and wonderful because I no longer crave it which is great for my path to having lower cholesterol! While in NYC with my co-workers, we decided to get pizza for lunch because when in Rome, amiright? Trying…

The Good Goes, And The Bad Stays

You would be amazed by the things that some people remember. Anything from the shirt they were wearing when they had their first child, to the time that they broke their arm. Most of us have thousands of memories stored in our brains. Whether it happened 5 minutes ago or 5 years, memories are constantly…

I Tried Yoga And This Is What Happened

This morning I woke up and went to Collinsville Hot Yoga with my cousins, Katie and Colby. I’m not a yogi, I didn’t know what three legged dog was or how to shavasana. There have been two occasion where I had attempted yoga before. Attempted is the key word. The first time I was a sophomore…

What To Do When Nothing Is Working

As most of you know, I have high cholesterol. I talk about it all the time, “I can’t have cheese, I can’t have ice cream, anything else that tastes good, I can’t have it.” So I started on my journey to a healthier me. Well this is what I have to report after the 2…

My All Time Favorite Songs

Everyone has their own taste in music, mine happens to be a mashup of early 2000’s punk, rap, alternative rock, boy bands, and show tunes. Here’s a look into my ipod and what songs have gotten me to where I am today. (Not in any specific order) Early 2000’s (pop)-punk:  Fat Lip – Sum 41…

An Ode To: The Plain White T’s

The Plain White T’s are so much more than just that band that wrote “Hey there Delilah”. So we may never know what it was like in New York City, but what I do know is that this band was not a one hit wonder. Delilah (and rhythm of love, but that song sucked) was…

It’s All About Me

The about me section of any questionnaire, icebreaker, or profile is by far the hardest part. I’m a pretty boring person when I really think about it. I wake up every morning, drink my coffee, go to class, come home, and sleep. That’s about it. I can’t say that I’ve swam with dolphins or gone skydiving, I’m not…

My Return to The Xfinity Theatre

If you live in Connecticut you’ve been to the Xfinity Theatre. It’s like any other outdoor venue; dirt parking lots, lawn seats, and expensive beer. I would imagine the Xfinity Theatre is like the PNC Center in Jersey or the Jiffy Lube Theatre in Virginia. Outdoor concerts are a sign that summer has arrived. In high…

What it’s like Growing Up in Simsbury,CT

We all grew-up in different places; New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and then there’s Simsbury. It’s like a beach town with no beach; filled with Ma & Pa restaurants, countless ice cream shops, and Jeep Wranglers. If you grew up in Simsbury you know the story of the Pettibone Tavern, you know that…

Why Being Single Rocks

I’m always pestered with questions from my mom and grandma, “when are you going to get a boyfriend?” they ask. To which I respond, “I don’t want a boyfriend and I don’t need a boyfriend. I’m only 21.” For some reason that isn’t a good answer. My Bubbie (Yiddish for grandmother) encourages me to go…

Five Dollar Find

On my trip to Portland, ME this past weekend I was introduced to a piece of Portland treasure. While walking down Exchange Street I was flagged down by a couple in their 40’s. They yelled across the street to me, “have you been to this place?” they asked and pointed to a white door behind…
