FINALS

Finals week: The time of over-packed libraries, endless trips to Starbucks, and countless Facebook statuses about tests and studying. This is what I have discovered finals are like here at the University of Rochester. I myself had three finals, but one was during classes. Thankfully, the University provides us with a "reading period," which is[…]

Dance!

I do some pretty random things, but recently I did something I could have never predicted a few months ago: I put on a jingly hip-scarf and all the glittery things I owned and danced in front of a crowded room of people. This semester I took a Middle Eastern dance class, and as part[…]

The YellowJackets Concert, December 2011

On December 11, the University of Rochester YellowJackets had their fall semester concert in Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theatre. I was so lucky to be able to attend the second show of the day at 7 pm, considering the first show at 3 pm sold out in three days and the second show sold[…]

Winter Fun in Rochester!

I’m moving in to the George Eastman House. Never mind the fact that it’s a museum now; it’s happening. I went for the first time with some friends on Saturday afternoon, and it was all decorated for Christmas and really pretty. The selling point for me, however, was the beautiful gardens outside. I’m in love.[…]

The Sing-Off Comes to an End for the YJs

The University of Rochester's YellowJackets sadly had to call their time on NBC's The Sing-Off to an end after the top six were picked. It was very sad for everyone watching, even fans from all over the nation. Between Facebook, Twitter, and NBC's own blog, it is clear that the YellowJackets are highly missed. Their[…]

Music in Rochester

I think one of the coolest things about the city of Rochester is how much music is present and goes through here. On top of the Eastman School of Music, which is one of the top music conservatories in the nation, there are many venues and places for artists to perform and make music. One[…]

Sundays

I think Sunday is my new favorite day of the week. I know it’s not as exciting as Friday or Saturday, but I love the chill atmosphere. Last weekend featured the perfect Sunday. I didn’t set my alarm Saturday night (the only day of the week that happens!), slept until 11, and then spent the[…]

From Hell Week to Mel Weekend

For some reason, midterms and Meliora Weekend consistently collide in the absolute worst way possible. While the weekend is supposed to be full of exciting speakers and networking opportunities, dinner with your family, and enjoyable performances, it is actually just a huge bundle of stress, compounded by the doom of midterms hovering closely by. Last[…]
