Known as the guitarist for the ever-so-popular band, fun., Jack Antonoff takes his talents center stage as the frontman of a new project: Bleachers. And it’s awesome. Check out Bleachers’ first single, “I Wanna Get Better” here and be on the lookout for the debut album later…
1. Never Show Up To Meetings Unprepared.
Miranda: Why is no one reeaaaaddddy.
You can’t half-ass your way through meetings/class/important presentations. Don’t do it.
2. Always Know The Important People In Your Field.
Andy: (On the phone) Could you please spell “Gaaabaanah”?
It’s “Gabbana,” bitch. You should always know who the key, very important people are in the place you work — even if you just got started on the job. When I worked at a fashion magazine I used to see the Editor-in-Chief around all the time, and I always made sure to hold the elevator door for them, say hello and smile with my eyes.
3. You Are What You Eat.
Nigel: Corn chowder. That’s an interesting choice. You do know the main ingredient in corn chowder is cellulite.
The other day I was eating donuts for breakfast in my office when…

Good morning ladies and gents. I’ve been listening to music and updating anything and everything potential employers have been linked to via application (if you’re a potential employer, hello and welcome to my personal blog) with my latest portfolio material. With a long list of…
Well hello there, my friends. It’s nice to be chatting with the lot of you again.
My absence was brought on by a very busy (and very fun) six weeks of Spring Training covering the Milwaukee Brewers for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Peanuts and Cracker Jack blog.
While it was an incredible experience that I wish could have lasted forever, unfortunately it had to end. Speaking of endings, I’m graduating from Arizona State in a month and a half. Yeah, I know. I’m freaking out too.
With the end of my scholastic career nearly around the corner, I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone who has been a part of the greatest support system in the world.
God has blessed me with some incredible experiences during my time at Arizona State and a large majority of you have been there every step of the way. During my time here, I’ve gone from a camera-shy, under the radar little lass to spending time with two professional baseball organizations (Arizona Diamondbacks and Milwaukee Brewers), interacting with media, players, coaches, etc., and getting even closer to my dreams as a woman in the world of baseball – whatever that may entail.
The next month and a half of continuously applying for jobs and utilizing all of the wonderful connections I’ve made over the past four years is going to be a difficult adventure, but not one I’m dreading in the slightest.
Thank you for being there, watching, reading, praying, listening (especially those of you who have been lucky enough to get a few hundred tears over the phone), and talking me through a pretty crazy, exciting, scary, liberating time in the life of an almost college graduate!
You’re a blessing.
Stumbled upon a cool NPR Music series of live, mini concerts. Here are some of my favorites:
And every day I add another stone to the walls I built around you to keep you safe.
This weekend, I spent some time listening to old Paramore, P!ATD, Fall Out Boy, and Cute Is What We Aim For to relive my freshman year in high school. Not to say that year was particularly worth reliving, but I listened to some killer music…
The Mowgli’s are a band I’ve been listening to for a while now and I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to write about them. While listening to their album, Waiting For The Dawn, this afternoon, a particular song stopped me in my…
I’m certain life is about finding the one person who will sing this song with you at a karaoke bar. Or the person who doesn’t think it’s weird that you used to listen to this song before every basketball game in the fourth grade. I’ll…
How foolish is it to be completely infatuated with a place you’ve only seen in pictures and films? Normal, right? People, young and old, discuss past, present, and future travel plans and we can’t help but wonder what it might be like to have a…
