I’m Learning to Butter People Up with My Journalism Skills

Sometime last week, I had to explore the city of Boston for a Journalism assignment. I swear some of the journalism professors love sending students out for stories here at Emerson. But besides that point, I had to do a story relating to food trucks so I headed down to The Chicken Rice & Guys’…

Being Allergic to Animals

One of the most vivid memories I have from my adventures in preschool is how I found out I was allergic to all kinds of animals. I had one goal in preschool and that was becoming the Bunny Keeper. Every single time my class would go to the library, that is where Lucy’s cage is…

At Last, the Break From College

At last, finally, you can catch a break from college. Finals week is over and all you have to is pack up and escape the college reality. This time, you have a whole month! What? Yes, I said the whole month. You finally have the time to sleep in from all those 8 a.m. classes…

The Bullet Journal for the Lazy

I have long obsessed over the idea of a bullet journal.

I’ve Googled the lined versus dotted versus graph versus blank notebook conundrum. (Google says dotted is the bullet journal way to go.) I’ve gazed at #bujo on Instagram. I’ve filled online shopping carts with ridiculously expensive pens and washi tape and how-to calligraphy books, only to somehow exercise the self-control I’ve been searching for my whole life.

National Holidays: The Definitive Ranking

It’s November, and you know what that means. The yearly smackdown has arrived. Once more, the weirdly passionate section of the American people has been screaming on the Internet about the respective merits of Thanksgiving and Christmas. When the clock strikes midnight on October 31, some instantly hit play for the first time out of…

Holiday Gifts on a College Budget

The holidays are the time of the year where you want to give presents to your friends, family, pets, teachers, co-workers, and whoever else is special to you. But there may be one thing that’s  stopping you . . . money. Buying gifts for multiple people definitely adds up, so I created a list of…
