My Christmas Letter

So I didn’t get my act together this year to send out Christmas cards. Truthfully, I’m so impressed that some cards have gotten to me! (first due to the fact that my sweet friends and family sent cards to Harlem, secondly, because I don’t trust the mail system around here.) So I decided to somewhat … Continue reading

Random and True Part VI- HOLIDAY EDITION!

I’ve learned some random things throughout this crazy holiday season, so before I leave the city for the holiday I thought I would share them in the sixth edition  of random and true- tidbits I’ve learned. HOLIDAY EDITION! In New York, Salvation Army Bell Ringers have to wear uniform. If not, any smart homeless person … Continue reading

Happy Holidaze from Harlem!

So this year, with all of us brand spanking new to the adult world, we didn’t have too much to go on to make our little apartment festive. But we did what we could (and I think we did pretty well). What we didn’t supply in decor, we supplied in baking. Let my holiday spirit … Continue reading

Ukulele Christmas Cabaret (Hell Yeah)

Last night Laura was my buddy once again for another amazing New York Christmas adventure.

From what I could put together Ukelele Cabaret … Continue reading

100 and counting….

Yesterday marked my last event of the season (not counting the eminent last-minute events). After the event I had time to decompress and re-evaluate my prep list before the event pick back up after the holidays. While decompressing, I realized that this last event of the season was my 100th event in my current position! … Continue reading

The Holiday Party Built Out of Love.

This past Friday was the Faculty/Staff Holiday Party at Columbia. Of course, the Events Team was put in charge of the event. Oh the perks of being in events! We get to work our own parties! With literally a minuscule budget for 175 people (After 2008 it is amazing we have a party at all!), … Continue reading

The Shot Heard Round NY and Central Indiana

Appropriate to compare a basketball game to start of WWI? Maybe not. But for now, go with it.  Last night me, my roommates, friends, and a shit ton of other IU alumni joined in one of the most spectacular Hoosier basketball moments ever: Yes last night IU beat #1 ranked Kentucky. First time IU has … Continue reading

Random and True Part V

I’ve got a few posts in the oven but I’ve stacked up on weird little pieces of knowledge! Thus time for the fifth edition of random and true- tidbits I’ve learned. I truly believe the only thing that is completed in an expedited fashion in New York are deliveries from Morton Williams grocery. For a city … Continue reading
