Fools and Floors

I had a choice: click in place wood flooring or look like wood porcelain tile. Naturally I picked the tile. The hardest, longest flooring to put in and which I have the least experience in. Oh boy have I learned a lesson. Don’t get me wrong, I love the flooring! I am just not as in love with the process of getting it done…

Painted Up

With the majority of the demo done it was time for some pretty progress. I had spent weeks pouring over paint palettes considering how to style the condo. I love color! Bright, vibrant and lively colors. I really don’t shy from stronger colors. However I do want to be able to sell the condo without having to put too much work into it. I…

Demo Days

The first step in the condo project is to demo it. Basically tear it down to the bare essentials to truly have a base from which to build up my vision of it.

The Hunt Begins!

Career Fair came and went this past Friday in a flash. Before I knew it I had a chronological portfolio in the works, a presentation worthy portfolio for screen sharing, and a long list of updates across platforms. This job hunt is I’m sure going to be as interesting as last years. Most things are still online including Career Fair. The school decided to…

Superbowl Studio!!

My first year at Penn the Philadelphia Eagles won their first superbowl. I was in studio, streaming the game, and munching on snacks. You could hear the celebration echo throughout the city as soon as they won. It was one of the most incredible memories I have of footbal and school. The years to follow I’d join friends to watch the game, critique the…

What’s a Snow Day?

Que sparkly winter music and the thrill of no school …. Gone. Never again will there be an equivalent. Where the weather once played a role in our lives the internet has allowed us to remove ourselves one step more from the physical world. Meanwhile I yearn for a true snow day. While the past three days aren’t anywhere near the snow storms of…
