New Years in New York|2018

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…

Student Film

Julia's Judgments

This semester for our Digital Journalism class we were tasked with making videos about certain topics. We were part of the group called “What to Watch” so we discussed entertainment topics such as “Halloween Movies” and “People’s Opinion about the Ending of Friends”. This class gave us the opportunity to develop skills such as interviewing people and editing the footage together so it tells an interesting story. For our last topic we chose to discuss student film.

As someone who has been involved in student film for over a year I can say that I have so much respect for anyone who takes up the challenge to being involved in this process. It is a very long and difficult process, but if you push yourself you have the opportunity to create something amazing. Not to mention that while the process is difficult it can also be incredibly fun. If…

A Little Piece of Thai Land in Jeffersonville Indiana

HH

After adventuring to many local restaurants in the Louisville area the food girls decided to take their final trip across the bridge to Jeffersonville Indiana. After trying diner style burgers, an Italian feast that made one group member feel right at home, and a pizza place that took the size of one slice to a whole other level we stumbled across authentic Thai food. Located at 1411 East 10th Street in Jeffersonville Indiana, Mai’s Thai was the ultimate Thai experience.

Mai’s Thai was created and is still run today by Mai Kungkran-Myers herself. Mai grew up in Bangkok Thailand where she learned her traditional Thai cooking from her father. When Mai became a young adult, she met her husband who was an American soldier at the time and followed him back to the United States. Louisville shortly became her new home. When she first arrived, she struggled keeping jobs…

UofL’s LGBT Center Celebrates a Decade of Inclusion!

According to Aspen

The University of Louisville’s very own LGBT Center is celebrating ten years of success on campus. There has been a great deal of growth and change that has occurred in the last decade because of the center’s work with the LGBT community.

Many thoughts come to mind when thinking of the center’s prominence in the university community. Students use words such as family, acceptance, and hope to describe their experiences here.

But where did the LGBT center get its start?

The center started as a repurposed closet in 2007 and has since been relocated to The Intersection in the Red Barn where it still resides. It was created as a branch of the Office of Diversity and International Affairs in response to a series of homophobic propaganda that occurred on campus in 2004.

Since its humble start, the LGBT Center has contributed to the growth and success of the university…

My Favorite Time of the Year…

Rose's Rundown

November and December have to be the most memorable months of the year.  The reason I say that is because these times are filled with tons of holidays, cheers, love, warm snuggles, family, friends, food, and more!  I think celebrating the holidays with your loved ones is one of the purest most genuine things I will ever do in my life.

November is my birth month, which entails for a day where so many people overwhelm me with love and happiness!  Also, I get to smile all day, and have people give me special treatment 😉 LOL…Also, November holds Thanksgiving where we can become extra thankful for each and everything and everyone we have in our lives while stuffing our faces with amazing food (too much food might I add).

Flash forward to December, and the lights begin to be hung all throughout town along with decorations that…
