Outside Lands 2018 Look Book

To close out Summer 2018, I spent a three-day weekend at Outside Lands in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park! As a Bay Area native, I remember hearing ads for the first ever OSL ten years ago and, this year, bit the bullet on buying a ticket! I appreciated the diverse line-up and have heard great things about the local food booths,I thought there was no better way to celebrate the beautiful city I will always call "home" - knowing that I was going to be heading back to NYC in m

Blogging About Blogging

I've toyed with the idea of keeping a blog on and off since high school. Now that I feel as though I am in a position where I have things to say that people may actually care about, as well as being on the cusp of starting my professional career, here we are! I'm a few weeks out from beginning my senior year at Marymount Manhattan College as a Stage Producing and Management major with a Business Management minor, one day I hope to start my own theatre company with a focus on

Run Like an Olympian

Another fun day on the road! Our stop in Olympia was another memorable one. Our tour guide, Niki, was yet another guide who has known Marymount groups in the past. Her guidance thorough the archeological museum was informative and funny - she even showed us a statue that was known for having the best butt in Greece! This museum was possibly the closest I've ever gotten to real Greek statues - the statues that once graced Olympia's parthenon's pediments were intimidatingly hug

Delphi: the Navel of the Ancient World

Delphi was referred to as the "navel" of the world by ancient Greeks because they believed that it was so beautiful that all of the earth's beauty must have been been absorbed there from outside forces and then spread out across the globe. It's the most breathtaking place I have ever seen. We arrived in the late afternoon after our visits to the monasteries. There is a local restaurant there that our professors, Dr. Ringer and Rob Dutiel, eat at every time they do this trip.

Vergina and Dion

The first of many early mornings on the bus! Our first stop of the day was the tomb of Phillip II, father of Alexander the Great, in Vergina. One of the best preserved tombs ever found, as it was never looted. Buried below the tombs of two soldiers, grave robbers did not think to dig so deep. We got to explore the almost untouched tomb and even got to see the paint inside that had survived. It really felt like going back in time! Our second stop of the day was an archeologica

First Stop: Greece!

On 6.24.2017, my adventure of a lifetime began! After a morning of running around New York City to make sure all of my earthly possessions were either in my storage unit, in the care of a friend, or buckled into my backpack, I piled into a cab outside a friend's apartment after dropping off some unused groceries and headed to JFK! Upon arriving at the airport, I was greeted by my classmates and two professors. Everyone else was excited for a two week adventure, and I was too,
