Breakthrough

Last week I was in Soho for work. The day got crazy and the stress levels increased so I stepped out for a few minutes and took a walk around the block. I came across this and couldn’t help but look for more than a minute. At first it looked like a jumbled mess of faded words and stickers but I read carefully and saw…

On my Mind: Tech-life balance

We live in a world where information and data is inextricably linked to our personal lives. It’s no longer just about work-life balance but about tech-life balance. As it becomes easier to attain information at our fingertips and easier to become lazy and inactive, the importance of unplugging and connecting offline is greater than ever. No more spending hours checking and sending emails or trolling…

Corporate/life lessons in fable form

This week I attended the 1st Annual NYU/Dartmouth joint career event. I emailed last minute and asked if I could go despite it being sold out because the title, “Adaptive Careers: How to Succeed in a Rapidly Evolving World” caught my eye. I thought it would be relevant to not only myself but also to those of you reading my blog! (You know I’m always looking…

What I’m reading: Paul Arden

It’s nice to have the classics and some educational non-fiction on your book shelf but sometimes you need a book that gives you a quick kick in the butt and a boost of motivation. A friend of mine recommended this to me and it’s a book I  flip through whenever I’m not reading Lean In. It’s a book of logical answers to everyday questions through…

FIT- love yourself

I was going through my photos when I came across these pictures I took of FIT dorm bulletin boards around Valentine’s day. Usually Valentine’s Day is about celebrating significant others and loved ones in your life but on FIT campus it was all about celebrating and loving yourself, first and foremost. It’s a message I think we often forget and often need to be reminded…

In conversation with Joan Rivers at Internet Week NY

With Joan Rivers, you never know what you’ll get. I definitely did not know what to expect from her Keynote at Internet Week but I had a feeling that whatever it was, it would be brutally honest and just the comedic relief I needed. Honestly, I wasn’t able to write down too many notes about the internet and media but I did write down sage…

Feel Alive

You may or may not have noticed that I’ve been posting a lot about commencement speeches on Twitter or Facebook. It’s because I’m curious as to what other schools are hearing and if there’s a common thread in all that’s been said. You already know what was said at my commencement but today I was able to catch a bit of Harvard’s speech, thanks to…

Do Epic Sh*t

I had the opportunity to tag along with one of my editors for Creative Week. Creative Week prides itself for being “where advertising, design and digital media collide with the arts.” This includes a lot of my interests so it was a great first time experience. Since I was one of the few students in attendance I feel almost obligated to share some of the things…

To the Class of 2013: words from Fern Mallis

Ever wonder what a commencement speech at a Fashion School sounds like? Well, Fern Mallis- oh, just the woman who created Fashion Week in New York, shaping American culture and Fashion as we know it today-was our guest and Commencement honoree. I jotted down a few notes. (Yes, I wrote down notes in an actual notepad. (I practice what I preach!)) Although this isn’t her full speech,…
