“Life Finds A Way”

The Journey of a Student Dad

Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to my humble blog!

My name is Micah and I will be your guide in this wonderful adventure called, “Fatherhood”. Now, I am by no means an expert on the subject, considering my firstborn will not be in the world for another two weeks (hopefully!). The purpose of this blog is to write on a weekly basis about what I am experiencing, so that when you get to this point too, you may be able to learn something from what I have shared. So, please excuse my lack of experience, but I welcome you to join me on this journey as I try to figure it all out.

This blog is not intended just for new dads. This is for all of us.

Whether you have five kids or are like me and about to have your first, whether you are a mother…

Why every twenty-something should watch the Tv-Show, Girls.

Lily Pope

You never really know how hard growing up is, until you’re 22 and about to graduated college… When you’re a kid, you think you have it all figured out. You plan out your life, you set goals and you look to your parents for guidance. Then 10 years go by and you will be sitting in the library of your college, questioning your life and wondering if you’re making all the right choices.

Most kids our age watch television shows, most of us try and relate our lives to them, but most seem so unrealistic to our current state because tv-shows try and create this image of a perfect life and how it’s something easy to obtain. For me, I always wanted to be a character on GossipGirl and live my life in Upper East Side of New York and get into Ivy League Universities, but that isn’t the…

As I begin this blog, I am still a little unsure of my vision for it. Starting a blog has been on my to-do list for years, but until now I’ve never been able to cross it off. Whether it was fear of failure or what, I’m not sure, but it’s only fitting that I am currently taking a digital journalism class in which a weekly blog post is required (call that irony, luck, or whatever).

I do A LOT of traveling. Something I’ve come to realize within the last few years is that there’s nothing quite like visiting the people you love in the cities they love, ESPECIALLY if you’ve met them elsewhere. There’s also something really magical about feeling like you’re in a different world/realm than normal life, even if you’re only geographically a few hours away.

Why You Should Buy a Crappy Car

hansblog

Who needs a fancy car with automatic door locks, working air conditioning, or leather seats. I’d rather have a 1998 Nissan Altima with none of those features but so much more personality.

My affection for crappy cars began with my first at age 16. It was a two door, hatch back 2001 Hyundai Accent. It was a manual, with hand crank windows, a horrible stereo, and none of the bells and whistles. Oh, and it also didn’t have working air conditioning. I can’t explain the love I have for these cars maybe it’s all of the one of a kind quirks that present themselves the longer you own it. With my Hyundai I had to press buttons twice to get them to work. It also had a smelly interior that I could never quite get rid of thanks to the previous owners.

My Nissan has a several of these quirks…

2018: The Year of You

eabuch02

“New year, new me,” is a phrase often heard toward the beginning of every single new year. People come up with resolutions that are often broken within the first week of January, and soon we fall back into our daily routines and habits that are similar to last year’s…and the year before that…and the year before that.

However, 2018 should be a different year–one you actually enjoy!

A resolution is usually a statement made to yourself that gives you a constricted state of mind. What that means is this: you are not allowing yourself to live life to its full potential. Resolutions are statements that begin with, “No more __________,” “Stop doing __________,” “Start doing __________,” etc. These resolutions also encourage permanent self change, when what you should be seeking out is life experience. Give yourself bucket-list type goals instead. If there is something you’ve always wanted to do, say…

Losing 85 pounds doesn’t help teach self love

Estashia Millers Blog

Rewind to December of 2013 I was a sopohmore in college, unhappy with myself and not knowing what self love was. I was flipping through pictures that my mom had taken and felt miserable at how I had let myself go. I decided that enough was enough and I needed to do something to make myself healthier and happier. That was the day I decided to join Weight Watchers.

2012

I was working UPS 2nd Shift at the time with my best friend and she would motivate me to go to the gym every night after work. She pushed me and even on the nights that I didn’t want to go we somehow made it to the gym. (Thank you Chrissa) The differences that I noticed weren’t just physical but mental .I had more energy, I ate better and I actually enjoyed working out.

Over the following year and a…

New Years in New York|2018

LARAVZQ

Freezing but HAPPY!

The forecasted weather for New Year’s Eve was predicted was way below average. We, my boyfriend and I, were told that the last time NYC saw a New Year’s this cold was twenty years ago. We also figured that being around roughly one million people for 12 hours without restrooms or food was not going to be worth it. The New Yorkers that we met all told us to skip Times Square and instead go to a rooftop. On our way to Brooklyn Bridge, our Lyft driver Marium, recommend a heated rooftop called 230 FIFTH, which is New York’s largest outdoor Rooftop Garden and fully enclosed Penthouse Lounge with heated seating.

But, it was ALL SOLD OUT!! We were bummed out! Then, we went to eat brunch at a  delicious Mexican restaurant, called La Contenta.

There they offered us their special, it was $70 per person and included live…
