As I lie in bed, wide awake at 3:30 a.m., my mind decides to wander. It’s running all over the place, but somehow, it always leads me back to you. It’s almost frightening thinking about you, honestly. I don’t know much about you, but you know everything about me. Funny how that is, huh? You’re...

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) gets me from point A to point B usually within an hour. It is a convenient way of traveling, especially if I am going into Manhattan.

Senior year of college. Well, here it is, the moment I’ve been waiting for. Another four years of my life just flew by. It’s insane to think that just four years ago I started college, and now I have made friends for a lifetime and figured out what I want to do with my life. If you were to ask ...

It’s the third day of fall and for the first time, it actually feels like fall weather. The windows of my car are rolled down and 94.7 Nash FM is blasting through the speakers, as the crisp, fresh air brushes through my now, dark auburn hair.  It’s a perfect day to take a ride through Westchester and let ...

When I'm attending a general admission concert, it puts a lot of pressure on me. Making sure all of my food, drinks, portable chargers, and wallet are all with me.
