Last night, I was all wrapped up in pounding out a research paper at my dining room table. When I stood up to get my late-night comfort food (chips and salsa, but of course), I felt a sharp pain – and it wasn’t the “boy, am I ready to be done with this paper” kind. […]

I tend to organize my life by the albums I listen to – I think of it as assembling a soundtrack to my life 🙂 During the last few months of my senior year of high school, I was all about Andrew Bird’s “Armchair Apocrypha” – a totally mind-blowing indie rock album that sent me […]

One of the best things about growing up is that it somehow makes it even more fun to act like a kid. Just the other day, my roommate, who spends her summers as a camp counselor at Camp Stella Maris in Livonia, N.Y., led a group of our friends in a few rounds of campfire-style […]

I’m a journalism major, so naturally, society expects me to drink coffee – or, as one of my favorite time-wasting Web sites, StuffJournalistsLike.com, puts it: “Gatorade for journalists.” And I admit there’s been many a time where I’ve been on deadline and brewed a whole pot of straight-up black elixir just for myself. I’ve even […]

I purchased a one-year Erie Art Museum membership this summer when I signed up for their Advanced Digital Photography class. The class, taught by prolific Erie photographer Art Becker, was a total blast. It mostly consisted of our group going out on location (Dobbins Landing, Presque Isle) to shoot while we received individualized instruction about […]
