Let me tell you why.   Wednesday, July 4, 2018 9:30 a.m. arrive at beach 12:50 p.m. purchase concert tickets and leave beach 3:45 p.m. leave… Continue reading Opportunities are (still) Meant for Taking

A New London Original in NYC

I make it my mission to see at least one Broadway show per semester and thanks to Hofstra University Honors College, I was able to check that box early. I saw a newer play, Farinelli and the King, at the Belasco Theatre in New York. The show tells the story of how the mentally unfit… Continue reading A New London Original in NYC

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Lil Wayne

“NO WAY WE ARE GETTING LIL WAYNE AT FALL FEST OMG (insert crying emojis)” is exactly what I tweeted when I found out the rapper was coming to Hofstra for Fall Fest. I was excited because being a two-time Grammy winner and having a mountain of songs under his belt, Wayne was one of the… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Lil Wayne

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars was dripping in Finesse as he opened his 24K Magic World Tour at The Nassau Coliseum on Long Island with his song “Finesse.” I’ll have to say, I was surprised when he did not open the show with “24 K Magic,” the first song on his 24K Magic album and, obviously, the name… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Bruno Mars

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Tash Sultana

I am no longer physically in Australia, but I would like to say my trip was extended until October 5th, when I saw Melbourne native Tash Sultana perform at The Brooklyn Steel. After falling in love with her music and seeing her at Groovin’ the Moo music festival in Australia last semester, my roommate Sierra… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Tash Sultana

Why You Should Visit the Jersey Shore

I think the Jersey Shore is a magical place, especially in the summer. The coast of New Jersey consists of about 140 miles of beaches and boardwalks, but I am biased to the Toms River/Seaside Heights and Park area, of course, because that’s where I was raised. From boating to beaching, I seem to never… Continue reading Why You Should Visit the Jersey Shore

Best and Worst of the MTV 2017 Video Music Awards

I was really feeling the FOMO (fear of missing out) of not being at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, since I was there in the pit having the time of my life last year. Despite my consistency of almost never being able to watch award shows, I made sure I was home to view… Continue reading Best and Worst of the MTV 2017 Video Music Awards

Oz: My First Music Festival

Australia’s hot new music is broadcasted on Triple J radio station, which is filled with different sounds—incredible tunes—that I never heard until I moved here. I am so fortunate that I was able to attend my first music festival partly sponsored by Triple J and see some of my new discoveries in the land down… Continue reading Oz: My First Music Festival

Oz: Purpose World Tour

Monday, March 6 may not see like that important of a date to most, but I had been looking forward to it for months. It is the day I saw Justin Bieber on his Purpose World Tour at NIB Stadium in Perth, Australia. As soon as I found out he would be in Perth when… Continue reading Oz: Purpose World Tour

Fiji: 50 Shades Darker

Prior to dinner, our family suggested that we watch a movie, and Jordan took a liking to the idea. Long story short, Jordan and I decided that we would see Fifty Shades Darker, which was premiering in Fiji (and ahead of the U.S.). It turns out this premiere party was a huge celebration: there was… Continue reading Fiji: 50 Shades Darker
