I’m a Wanderer


I never thought as an English major that I would find myself in the world of marketing and advertising. I don't know why really. I mean, not all English majors don a tweed jacket with elbow patches and a pair of spectacles for reading papers (though to be honest, I do love my tweeds). While…

Why I Jumped Ship on Traditional Magazines


Slowly crawling out of their caves to find print is in fact not dead, magazine media companies find that the world has changed and only the innovative will survive (more so than ever before). You would think brands like Vogue, Esquire, and People would have the legacy to ride into the future, but I can…

Sometimes, I just am.


Everyone wants to be heard. We shout from our little bubbles with hashtags and share "news" articles that may or may not be accurate. It's on the internet so it has to be... I understand having a voice. I use it with every scribble and dot and crossed t. I know about voice because mine…

Four Years and Counting–and Where is this Going?


It's crazy to think I've been at this for four years. I haven't necessarily been your average blogger. I haven't found one particular niche I could pigeon hole myself in and rock at. But that was never what this was about. It's been a selfish outlet, but I hope some of it is entertaining-- if…

Subways and Other Adventures


The first time I got on the New York subway three and a half weeks ago I immediately envied the seasoned New Yorkers. While I was holding on for dear life, they were completely lax and swaying with the squealing turns of the tracks. I felt like I had landed feet first, precariously jerked forward…

Embracing Free Fall


Have you ever had those stomach lurching dreams as you seemingly fall through endless space, only to be jolted awake? They say it comes from anxiety that builds up in real life and overflows into your dreams. Yet this is one thing some people experience when awake. In fact, I'd say it's pretty much what a…
