Full Steam Ahead!

Spring break was much needed, but now that it is over, I really have to buckle down for the end of the semester.  I have, however, beaten my addiction to 90s pop music, and have returned to my normal pattern of the social justice-infused, summer musical stylings of OAR and Dispatch.  I think the tipping point was when Pandora ran out of 90’s songs and started steaming early 2000s pop.  When Britney and JT broke up, her music really suffered.  I blame K-Fed.

Spring Stay-cation 2013!

Okay, Okay, I know it's not that exciting.  I decided to stay in Philly.  I would so much rather bum around an exciting city than a boring town, even if said boring town has free laundry and cable (BIG WORDS).

So far I have done laundry for free at my boyfriend's house, that incidentally has cable.  I bought a windbreaker and a really cute pair of work out shorts.  I also bought a new purse, and I have yet to wake up before noon. Needless to say, I am very much enjoying my time off!

Blog me, Baby One More Time!

It’s been a week since my last blog when I proudly announced my love of late 90s pop music, and since then, it has been a downward slope into the depths of the 1999 “Top 50” playlist. No shame, Britney sends her love.

Harlem Shake and other Shenanigans

The Week:

On Monday, I went from not knowing what this phenomenon was, to by Thursday, wanting the craze to be over already!  Planking, Ebaum’s World, Chuck Norris, these are all pop culture references are a flash in the pan.  It’s been 15 minutes, so why is the Harlem Shake still on the radar!?  

Please take a few minutes to cringe at these homemade renditions of the Harlem Shake.

6-Hour Studios

Last Tuesday was my dad’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Dad!).  So naturally when class breaked at 11:30, I called him.  He asked me what I had been doing so I started telling him about my Photo II class and how I had break until 1, then class again until 4.  He asked me “what class?”

What class? WHAT CLASS?? It’s the same class.  It’s just a 6-hour studio.

Things I Should Have Done, but I didn't...

I should have folded my laundry.  I didn’t.  Instead, I took a nap.  I am such an advocate for nap time.  I pretty much nap like every day.

Mama Said there'd be Days like This...

I’m really not one to complain, but ohmygawd, did today suck.

First, I woke up (10 minutes later than planned). I must have turned my alarm off in my sleep, because I woke up to the ‘snooze’ alarm.  Okay, that was a set back.  Because of my early morning cat nap, I had to rush to my 8:30.  I began to throw my stuff into my bag.  Notebook?  Check.  Textbook?  Check.  Keys?  Check.  Sunglasses?  SUNGLASSES? They were no where to be found.  I had to leave without them or else I’d be late for child psych.

I'm Back!

If you ask me, winter break was entirely too short.  Time flies when you’re having a ball!

At the beginning of December, I got a call from an organization called Taglit-Birthright.  Operating mainly through campus Hillels (and other Jewish student groups like Chabad and JSU), Taglit offers Jewish college students who have never been to Israel before a free 10-day trip.  UArts does not have a Hillel, so I chose to go through Drexel.  Through a miraculous and stressful chain of events, I got a spot on the Drexel trip!

Finals in full swing!

Last weekend I filmed for my Video Production Final.  I’m on the fence about group work because it can either go very well, or absolutely horribly.  My group (Alexandra, Bryon, and myself) got together for the first project, got an ‘A’ on it, then decided to stick together for all the projects.  Bryon usually films, I do sound, then Alex edits.  I’m still waiting to see the final project, but here’s the rough edit:

Check it out!

Photography - Concentration in Art Therapy ''15
Baltimore, Maryland

I am currently a Sophomore perusing a BFA in Photography with a concentration in Art Therapy.  I am from Baltimore, Maryland. Outside of class, I enjoy hanging out with friends, exploring the city, working out, and of course, taking pictures.  

My favorite TV shows are Saturday Night Live, The Office, and Parks and Recreation.  I have watched almost all the episodes on Netflix.  Twice.  I live in an off-campus apartment with my roommate, Jill.  We have a blast but we hate  grocery shopping and doing laundry.

Check out my photo tumblr, I update it frequently!
