I’ve just realized going to sleep would solve most of the problems in my life. It’s 2:20 am and my stomach is grumbling… so while I should be asleep in my bed I’ve thought of all the negative affects of sleeping late and why I should make it a priority to be in bed by midnight: The later I stay up: …the more hungry I get and the more I eat. Sleep late= more pudge...
Sports Update →
Louisville and Pitt just lost. Great. 2 out of 4 made my top four, and my final two now are shot. (I had Louisville against UNC). I supposed there is still a chance to win my pool if UNC wins the whole thing. I’ll just keep crossing my fingers.

Why you should visit me in Seattle (when I'm...
I’m on-call right now, and decided to make a list of all the cool places in Seattle you should visit if you are ever so lucky to make it out to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Let me clarify first of all… it does NOT rain all the time! It’s more of a mist. Summers are in fact BEAUTIFUL. There is no humidity, it is clean air and the water tastes like candy. =) Anyways, when all...

An Addition to Classic Fashion
So I read somewhere that a woman should invest in certain pieces of her wardrobe that will remain classic. This includes the LBD (little black dress), the trench coat, the crisp white collared shirt, denim jeans, and high heels amongst other things. In a progression from Senior year of high school’s A&F tee shirts, sweat pants and gossip girl wannabe uniform skirts, I managed to add...

Celebrity through Journalism
Until television, fame was not included in journalism. In 1998, the list of those who made over $100K in journalism were under 150 people. People used to go into journalism because it was a public service much like being a teacher. If you had an insatiable curiosity, you would want to tell people what you learned today, and that’s what drove people. The job of being a journalist was...
100 years ago...
Did you know, in 1909: Average life expetancy was 47 4 out of 10 homes in America had a bathtub 22 cents was the average salary Women washed their hair once a month with Borax or egg yolk Heroin was considered good for you and sold over the counter …I wonder what people will be saying a 100 years from now about us!

Vogue is more than fashion
I never read Vogue. If I do buy the magazine, its usually to look at the ads — not to read the articles. (Not that I have anything against the writers of Vogue, they are indeed all very talented.) However, I did fork over $4.95 for the heavy 500+ page March edition when I saw Michelle Obama on the cover and noticed that the magazine was doing a whole section labeled “power...

The President is my employee and he works for me.
Today in my CM 409 class which is all about media, politics, journalism and how we digest free speech, we talked about democracy. My professor said something that provoked some serious thought in me. He told us how our Presidents used to have several press conferences, yet now only hold 2-3 serious ones a year. He told us how this is a major problem because now we get our information not...

Wasn't it 60 degrees just yesterday?
Friday was beautiful. At even 9pm, it was about 55 degrees outside. A little wet, but still nice enough to go outside without the eskimo jacket, rainbow mittens and facemask of scarf and gloves. However our Earth, in the last 4 years I would say has been diagnosed with biopolar weather syndrom. And unsurprisingly the next day we’re hit with a snow storm. So currently I’m living...
