It’s that time of year when everyone is reflecting upon their last year (or decade as it seems this year), so I thought I’d do the same. I guess. Sigh. Honestly, I think these are kinda cheesy. But… I guess peer
Instagram is great, except for when they remind you of memories of weddings that you attended with your ex. That's what they did earlier this week. Although I don't miss that wedding or that relationship, I thought I'd write about the
Thanksgiving is upon us! If you don't live in the United States, this means nothing to you, but for all you Americans, this means you likely have Thursday off and if you're really lucky you also have Friday off. But it
Part of why I love to travel is because I love learning about different cities and cultures, but I also love learning about the people who lived in those cities. This would include Elvis Presley. I realized after I saw Zombieland Doubletap
About two years ago I dragged a good friend around the village to houses and sites that are supposedly haunted after binging the Bowery Boys’ Halloween episodes. If you haven’t heard of the Bowery Boys podcast, you should definitely go give
When I made plans to go to Tennessee in April, I knew I'd be going to the National Civil Rights Museum for sure. I don't know how you can visit Memphis in today's day and age and NOT visit the National Civil Rights Museum. Not with this political environment (if you're on the right side, and yes, there is a clear right side to be on nowadays). On my first day in Memphis, I took a long walk down Main Street, which my hotel was directly off of, which turns into South Main Street somewhere right before you get to the National Civil Rights Museum. Once I saw how close my hotel was to it, I made the executive decision to go there first thing the next morning at 9am when they opened.
No sleep for the traveler, as they say.I woke up extra early the next day and wandered down Main Street, grabbing a coffee and snapping photos on my way. I photographed all of the exhibits in the South Main Arts District walk that I could find and made my way to the Lorraine Hotel that houses the museum and saw tons of school-aged children meandering around, waiting for it to open. It opened within minutes of my arrival and I purchased a ticket and started my exploration. The Lorraine Hotel is historic because it's where Martin Luther King Jr. was staying when he was assassinated on April 4th, 1968. It was almost torn down completely in the years following after it had financial problems, but thanks to a local non-profit, it was saved in 1982 and converted into the National Civil Rights Museum that it is today.
Hi friends! Although we typically think of Memorial Day Weekend as the official start of summer, this Thursday is July 4th so it's another big marker as far the official summer season starts and I thought I'd tell you what you should see on Broadway this summer if you're planning on traveling to New York! I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned it here, but I went to school for theatre management and even though I no longer work directly in the industry, I still see a ton of theatre on the regular. So if there's a show that you're curious about, ask me, because I've probably seen it! Now let's get onto my recommendations.
