I’m obviously thankful for family and friends and food and a home and health and love and support and all of that that everyone else has been tweeting all day. But I’m not being true to myself if I don’t say how thankful I am for Friends on Netflix. That got me through last semester and may have changed my life. I cried for two days … Continue reading Thankful for Friends (The TV Show)
Whenever I was at home and having a crying fit during my elementary school days (It was pretty often to be honest), I would run to my room, lie in my bed in misery for a few minutes, and then pop a CD into my Hello Kitty boombox in an attempt to change my mood. Though I don’t see myself today pulling out a Disney … Continue reading Pump Up the Jams
This week’s Fierce Female is…. Hari Nef! I first came across Hari Nef when I was researching for a piece on up-and-coming models, and totally followed her on Instagram ASAP when I read that she is the first trans model to be signed to IMG. Other than looking at her pictures, I hadn’t thought much about her until this week, when I listened to Lena Dunham’s … Continue reading Fierce Female Friday
On Friday night, I had to walk from the subway to my dorm with my suitemate/friend/babysitting partner Annie after a night of babysitting.

A traffic jam went down 23rd for as far as I could see, and sirens were blasting and cars … Continue reading Where Do We Go From Here?

So now I’m finally in a coffee shop to blog because I am COMMITTED to Fierce Female Friday and refuse to end this day without acknowledging a fierce lady. Unfortunately, this is going to be a mini … Continue reading Fierce Female Friday
Aziz Ansari’s comedy is basically tailored for me. He’s into trendy food, cool iPhone apps, fancy sneakers, and pretty much everything older generations hate millennials for. I have seen all Aziz Ansari’s Netflix comedy specials and my share of Parks and Rec episodes, and I even have his poster on the front door of my dorm room. We treat it as our mezuzah and sometimes … Continue reading Aziz Ansari: Master of Everything
This week’s Fierce Female is… Aurora James of Brother Vellies! Some serious history was made at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Gala this week in more ways than one. So why has EVERY publication I’ve looked at about this event (I seriously cannot find one) only focused on one notable part of the event? This was the very first year that the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund chose to … Continue reading Fierce Female Friday
