Eva B

I went to  Montreal last week for four days but it wasn’t until the last day, an hour before my mom and I had to leave for the airport, that I found my favorite place in the city: Eva B, a mash up of a thrift shop, book store, and cafe. This is the outside…

Book Review: We Are Water

We Are Water is not a book one treads lightly. It is not a book that you buy for light reading or despite it’s name, as a good beach read. This novel is over 550 pages and covers topics from race to death to child molestation. As dramatic as this introduction is, I do not…

All About Mentors

In the competitive and, at times, daunting industry of media and communications we Emerson students are lucky to have such people as mentors.  Mentors are defined as experienced and trusted advisors who are there to simply help you out. (Some famous mentor/mentee relationships include Dumbledore and Harry Potter, Gandalf and Frodo, and Yoda and Luke…

Floridian Suburbia

My friends tried to convince me that if we went to the lake in their backyard we could pull off a fake “Florida Wilderness” photo shoot.  We couldn’t find an upcoming day where all of us were free to head over to Jonathan Dickinson Park and take photos in the actual wilderness, so Jacob’s backyard…

I’m a huge poseur. I have been all my life. And while I’d been mimicking other kid’s skooter tricks for years, the art of posing truly began to manifest in my sophomore year of high school. That’s when I decided enough is enough; I was going to look exactly like Rae Jefferson. Rae was a…

Goodwill Fashion

I’ve been shopping at Goodwill since my sophomore year of high school when I reluctantly went into the store and then came out 30 minutes later with a cubism skirt. I’ve been addicted ever since. I buy the majority of my clothing at thrift stores and, over the years, have collected some weird finds. To…

Ode to Summer Camp

When I was in my junior year of high school I decided that writing was something I, like, actually wanted to do with my life. This, for me, meant that I needed to buck up and do something to further my writing career. So I went online and looked into some writing programs. That’s how I found…

Old Town, New Person

Eight months away from home changes you. Any freshman at college could attest to this, especially Emerson students who are so often from out of state and living in a city for the first time. You don’t have your parents there to guide you, you don’t have them there to say no. You are forced…

Small Town Tourist

When I originally pitched my idea for this blog post I planned on going out, exploring my town like a tourist (seeing things like museums and parks) and then going back home and writing about them. In the process of writing this article I would look back on my day and think something like: “Huh,…
