[Review] A Chorus Line

Dear Reader, Are you a fan of musicals? I have seen about two dozen musicals live (and a bunch more like Hairspray and Les Misérable on-screen). I have a general appreciation for musicals, but occasionally, one comes along about which I just don’t have anything positive to say (which is rare for me!). The musical... Continue Reading →

What’s a Picklesburgh?

Dear Reader, Every city has its quirks and Pittsburgh is no exception. Like many big cities, the western-Pennsylvania destination has a number of big annual events, including pride parades, marathons, and an abundance of concerts. One summer event that is unique to Pittsburgh, however, is Picklesburgh. What is Picklesburgh? Started in 2015, Picklesburgh is an... Continue Reading →

Hit or Miss

Dear Reader, Do you enjoy chucking weapons at a wall? You do?? Well, then, ax throwing may just be the new fun sport for you. First — axe throwing… or is it ax throwing?

The Night Is Eternally Young

Dear Reader, There’s no place like college, and by college, I mean, the live-eat-sleep together experience. These past few days, I was fortunate enough to travel to Reykjavik, Iceland for a research program of sorts. During the week, we slept in shared rooms, ate some meals together, attended the same talks, walked to campus side-by-side,... Continue Reading →

This may not come as a surprise to you if you digest those articles that wax lyrical about why the Nordic work-life balance (or should I say LIFE-work balance, as the emphasis falls more heavily on the former) reigns supreme. Now that I have had the pleasure of... Continue Reading →

Get Out of Dublin!

Dear Reader, If you ever find yourself in Ireland, make sure that you take the time to get out of Dublin. As the country’s capital and largest city, Dublin will likely be your point of entry to this beautiful island. However, if you have the time and the means, you would be doing yourself a...

One Island, Two Irelands

Dear Reader, How many of you know about the 400+ year conflict that simmered, raged, then (mostly) fizzled out in Ireland? If you do not know about the tension between the Irish Catholics and Protestants — no worries — I didn’t know very much either aside from the “highlights” that I learned in college and...
