Living in a Fantasy
November 7, 2017
It’s nice when the real world cracks you a break — I always use mine to pursue creative endeavors. I took advantage of some extra time on my table and compiled a choreography for my upcoming performance at Bob and Barbara’s in South Philadelphia. The time off was just the right surprise as I was dreading practicing on the original day I had scheduled. The burst of inspiration on short-term notice led me to virtually completing a four-minute act in about an hour’s time.
Alternative Vacationing: Making Memories in Unconventional Ways
October 30, 2017
Maybe it’s just me, but why subject yourself to the costs of a hotel when vacationing? Unless your hotel is paid for or you’re forced on a family affair, or forced to spend your spring break at a cliche resort, skip the hotels and check out more budget-friendly and culturally immersive options such as couchsurfing, Airbnb, or hostels. I’m talking to you young vacationers. Save those blackout drunk nights for your own city — there is way more to glean from spring break than society’s standards tell you. Not only will my stories (hopefully) inspire you to travel unconventionally, but save you money, and earn you some grit along the way.
Blog: Why Take Chances?
June 15, 2017
Chances are opportunities that may only come once. When I choose to go to South Africa, I took a chance on a personal and educational level. I am not a journalism student despite this being a journalism class and have been able to experience, learn, and do work beyond what I felt I could have done if I stayed in Philadelphia over the summer.
This was my last and only chance to study abroad while in college and I am beyond glad I took it. This program has allowed me to push the boundaries of what college is by pushing me out of my cultural, social, and educational boundaries all at once.
