Recently, my co-host/roommate/confidant Kat O’Brien and I had opportunity to sit down (virtually first, physically later) with Allen Stone. Allen Stone is a national recording artist from Oregon, who is soulful and sweet and everything you’d expect him to be from his picture—and more.
We had a great phone interview with him a few weeks before his show in Baltimore. We dug down deep and asked him some serious questions, including about his hair and his taste in hats. You can listen to the interview here.
Allen has been on an international tour for his new album, Radius, which came out this summer. He was accompanied in Baltimore by Bernhoft, an internationally renowned musician who has been with him for the Southern and Northeast American leg of the tour.
We went to their show on November 11 at the Baltimore Soundstage, a fantastic local venue for anyone looking for known and unknown musical acts throughout the year.
We live in what can seem like a stressful and competitive world. The tendency is to work hard and play harder, or to burn the candle at both ends until you’re exhausted and can’t do either. Sometimes it seems there aren’t enough hours in the day to do the things we need to do, let alone the things we want to do.
This post is part two of a post in which I share what I have found to be methods to help first-year college students like me have a productive and enjoyable experience…
After what felt like the coldest winter Baltimore has seen in quite some time, spring has finally arrived. And as the weather gets warmer, the opportunities to get outside and get involved in activities around the city increase exponentially.
As someone who is not originally from the area, I will tell you that at first, it was difficult to figure out things to do beyond the Evergreen campus. However, I started following the advice I received from older, wiser students, and I eventually became familiar with the downtown neighborhoods.
The amazing thing is, aside from the things I am about to suggest to you, there is so much more to see and do.
Let’s start with my top five ideas for fun, low-cost ways to spend the remaining weekends of the spring semester in Charm City…
Little unknown or unmentioned fact about me: I used to be homeschooled.
From 3rd through 8th grade I learned from my parents via the Calvert curriculum, took classes with other homechoolers in a co-op, joined homeschool groups for knitting, choir, and even went to museum events specifically for homeschoolers. Oh yeah, and there was even a homeschool prom.
Hey guys! I’m back with an update on what happened after both fashion shows. In the last post I talked about how excited I was for the fashion shows but now I’m feeling underwhelmed. It’s been so exhilarating and so fun to be able to have the opportunity to participate in both of these fashion shows. Now, it’s like my schedule has cleared and I would like to be busy again.

We have just returned from spring break and now it is full speed ahead. You would think that after a break I would take it easy but in fact it is the complete opposite. March 2014 is going to be the busiest month of my life. The one thing that keeps me sane is my planner and I’m literally hanging on to it for dear life in order to keep up with everything in my schedule. However, it is exciting and fun to see that eventually all my hard work will pay off in the end. Continue reading →
