NYC what is your Grade?

It’s kind as if your writer was missing in action for a brief moment in time -but seriously don’t let that small amount of time off fool you. As a defense this never-ending damn Polar Vortex perhaps has played a major part in supplying an infinite amount of brain freeze -literally.  However, that’s not the…

Pole Dancing + Comedy = Schtick A Pole In It

My name is Jasmine and I’m a pole dancer. I know what you’re thinking: I always knew she’d end up stripping. That’s not what I said. Pole dancing is a wildly popular form of dance, sport, and exercise that is still highly stigmatized. But we’re not strippers, we keep on our clothes… (not a ton…

TV Is My Boyfriend

I’m in love for the second time. But this one just feels right. This time, TV is my boyfriend. I can’t even explain it, there’s just something about TV that I’m so drawn to! And I told myself I would never open my heart up again, but here I am. I just can’t get enough.…

Haven’t Seen Her In A While

I, like everyone have heard the old cliché of “the one that got away.” I also always thought that it was bullshit. The concept of love itself seemed to be flawed to me. I never had experienced it outside of the context of family, which let’s face it is more of an obligation rather than…

Breakfast: Is It An Essential Meal For All Age Groups?

There can be no doubt on the fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day; it is imperative that both grown-ups and children do not skip this meal.

The truth is that skipping the breakfast can sabotage your best weight loss…
