A Beautiful Day in New York

Today we got up bright and early to catch the rush line for Beautiful, the new musical about Carole King.

Vivica went ahead to get a spot in line, and I went to the train station to see if my missing suitcase was at the Lost and Found. No such luck. It was definitely stolen.

So I headed over to the Stephen Sondheim Theatre to get in line. If you don’t know what rush is, it is when you go to the theatre the morning (usually for 10am) you want your tickets for. Many Broadway theatres sell any tickets they still have for that day for about $30. Depending on the day, you could end up in one of the first few rows!

On Location at Columbia

I’ve always wanted to visit Columbia University.

It’s featured in many films, and is home to Havemeyer Hall, the most filmed college classroom ever. It’s seen in the Spider-man films, Kinsey, Malcom X, Ghostbusters, and a few of my faves: Mona Lisa Smile and The Mirror Has Two Faces.

Not to mention the fact that the campus is gorgeous!

Since then, we haven’t managed to meet up again, until now. In New York! Continue reading

Back to School! Four items to bring to Residence.

Moving to college can be a bittersweet thing. Β For students going into their first year it’s exciting and scary, and it’s usually the first time they’re moving away from home. Β On-campus residence is a great way to make the leap because everyone is in the same situation. Β We’re excited for this new chapter in our lives, but inside we are on the verge of tears (or if you’re like me, you’re sitting on the front step literally crying like a baby). Continue reading
