Letter from the Editor: The Power of Patience

With summer approaching on the sunny horizon and the calendar finally reaching the half-way point of what seemingly feels like a bit of a rough year, it’s amazing to see how fast time flies. I am completely shocked at how quickly 2016 has gone by. While it personally started a bit rough for me, it got relatively easier thanks to family and friends, work I can be proud of and a future I have faith in that will be waiting for me.

How Journaling Can Improve Your Life

Between pimply, youthful dreams, pages plastered with Lisa Frank stickers and all that blue-penned angst, notebooks have a teenager-y sort of stigma.

Gossip Killed the Radio Star: An Open Letter to the Media and Music Lovers

As a self-proclaimed entertainment news junkie, one of the things I have always been interested in, is knowing what goes on in the entertainment industry after the cameras stop rolling.

Blogilates: A Fun and Innovative Twist on Classic Pilates

Three days into my summer vacation (which, being a college student, started in mid-May) I suddenly stopped to look at myself. There were fast-food bags on my nightstand. I’d hardly left my bed other than to get food and use the restroom. I’d been churning through recorded tv shows and movies at a ridiculous rate. […]
