I stepped in sh*t, but I guess I’ll run

Sometimes I really wonder where I’ve derived a compulsivity to be so fiercely independent. While my friends were planning spring break vacations to beaches and resorts in January, I was taking the time to think about my time (a common theme I’ve adapted this semester). Through that thinking, I came to the decision that I wasn’t really about beaches and bars for my senior spring break. I wanted to take on something new; I love … Read MoreI stepped in sh*t, but I guess I’ll run

I read a book for once and now I can’t turn my brain off

What will probably come as a shock to some of my friends and family is that I recently read a book. For pleasure.  I’m obviously one to fight for other forms of escape and entertainment (I mean, have you looked at the rest of this blog recently?), but as an attempt to “grow” and “try new things,” one of my New Year resolutions that has surprisingly stuck is taking a chance on reading.

French and American. Impressionist and Modern Realist. Performers and strangers. But hey, look at all those redheads.  I found these two posters during my first week of classes last fall and remember dumping $20 on something I probably could have found a way to print … Read MoreLet’s talk about art: where to marvel and what to see

What happened to the romantic comedy?

I have a distinct memory of scrolling on my TV guide when I was about 10 or 11 in my living room when my mom came up from behind me screaming, “DON’T CHANGE THE CHANNEL!” It was the beginning of When Harry Met Sally.  Waitress: Hi, what can I get ya? Harry: I’ll have a number three. Sally: I’d like the chef salad please with the oil and vinegar on the side and the apple … Read MoreWhat happened to the romantic comedy?
