As my first semester of grad school is over..I have learned so much. Some good, some bad, some funny, some so sad it’s funny. I can say, graduate school through me for a shock. I didn’t expect that my days of grasping everything at my undergraduate, Syracuse University, wouldn’t prepare me for grad school, but […]

Disclaimer: This will be a very honest post, probably because it is so close to my heart. As someone in class a few weeks ago made a joke about the lights above giving him epilepsy..it took every ounce of compassion to hold myself back.

It’s awfully cold for a naked bike ride. But it wasn’t the nudity in this Gawker post about a planned protest in Williamsburg which caught my eye (no, really). The Brooklyn Paper reported that 50 or so bikers will be riding in the buff (or close to it) to protest the removal of the Bedford […]

The most interesting thing I learned about blogging this semester was its plasticity, the variety of forms it can take. Well I have followed my own time tested and sometimes monetarily rewarded approach of contriving controversy, over analyzing, rehashing, and condescending to parties unkknown, I was just as edified by the posts I did which […]

The Metropolitan Transit Authority of New York City passed their 2010 budget today. Most budgets are passed without any notice and if so, maybe a brief mention on the 11 o’clock local news–But today was a different story. I recieved a breaking news alert via a text message from WABC-Channel 7 in New York City. […]
