New York Sightseeing

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is officially appropriate to start getting excited about the Holidays! New York is a very exciting place to be for the Holiday season (even though it’s not snowing yet). While the busyness of finals might get in the way of the Holiday fun you want to have, here are some different Christmas and Holiday related activities you can do when you finally have a spare moment (or are procrastinating that paper).


Radio City Christmas Spectacular

Watch the famous Radio City Rockettes kick their legs to Christmas music and even help to tell the story of Christmas. You can buy tickets here.

New York Ballet’s Nutcracker

Do I need to even explain this one? Get tickets to the classic Christmas ballet here.

A Broken Christmas Carol

Watch two Jewish kids try to discover the meaning of Christmas in this comedic “original” holiday tale. More information here.

Hanukkah Theater Performance With the Striking Vikings Story Pirates

Watch an ensemble of actors act out Vaudeville style a series of stories written by young children at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Confused? Intrigued? Either way click here.


Just going and looking at all the of the Holiday windows makes for a fun, christmas-y adventure, but here are some particularly awesome windows to make sure you put on your list.

Saks Fifth Avenue

Their window theme this year is “Land of 1000 Delights” and their main animated window shows Clara and some Nutcracker friends wandering through a delightful treat-filled land.


Macy’s theme this year of “Believe” shows it commitment through a window featuring Santa and other Christmas favorites

Tiffany & Co.

Look at a classic Tiffany style window featuring lots of jeweled sparkle and Tiffany blue. It will make you feel a little fancier just looking at it.

Bergdorf Goodman

Not going anywhere warmer for the Holidays? Have no fear, Bergdorf Goodman is here! Their theme is “Destination Extraordinary”, featuring very green windows with lots of animals- practically like a museum but also fashionable!


Columbus Circle Holiday Market

Right at the entrance to Central Park at 59th Street, this market features food and artisan goods made by locals. You can get jewelry, puzzles, art and anything else you might need to impress your mom here. (located at 59th Street and Central Park West)

Winter Village at Bryant Park

Featuring a Christmas tree and ice rink, this market features lots of fun shops and food, as well as lots of Christmas cheer! (located at Bryant Park at West 42nd and Sixth Avenue)

Union Square Holiday Market

Very similar to Columbus Circle, but in Union Square. Come here for more fun shops, especially featuring home goods like pantry items, body products and fun Winter accessories. (located in Union Square Park at East 14th)

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
