  • Switch It Up To Sweat It Out
    Let’s be honest: most of us hate working out, however fun it claims to be. Yes, even something fun like Zumba can be exhausting. And that’s probably why, when you find a routine that’s easy-ish and works for you, you stick to it for months on end. But whether you’re huffing and puffing at the weight rack or jogging slowly down a grassy path,

  • The Early Bird Gets the Gains
    Another new year has come and gone, and I’ve made the same resolution as last year, the year before that, the year before that, and — well, you get the picture. But this is definitely going to be the year I find the perfect workout routine and stick to it. Because this year I’m biting the bullet and doing my workouts in the morning. Now, I’m a

  • A New York State of Mind: Life on The High Line
    New York City is the classic concrete jungle — characterized by its towering skyscrapers with brick facades and neon signs for color. But even in this awe-inspiring, expansive manmade structure, it’s possible to find a refreshing stretch of nature. No, I’m not talking about Central Park.

  • Going For Gold: My Picks for the 2019 Oscars
    Another year, another Oscars. As awards season draws to a close, speculation is rife on which film will win the prestigious Academy Award. It’s early days yet. Nominations were announced just last month, and we only recently learned that the show will have no host this year. So it’s a bit far-fetched to think we can predict the winners. But

  • Exploring the colorful world of anime
    My first real introduction to the colorful and somewhat absurd world of anime was through a rather bombastic and often cheesy show called ‘Fairy Tail’. I’ve been a fan ever since. You may have heard the word before, courtesy of popular shows such as Pokémon. But for many outside of Japan, it can be an intimidating medium. With so many shows,

    Ah the start of a new year! A time when people have a bunch of memories to look back on and a lot of new ones to look forward to. Many hype up the new year as a fresh start, brimming with new possibilities, but I’m not one of them. After all, changing your life isn’t as easy as changing your calendar. But experience is the best teacher. And

  • Kimye — Power Couple of Athleisure
    As a famous man once sang — “No one man should have all that power”. But a duo as dynamic as that man, Kanye West, and his wife, Kim Kardashian, might just be able to handle it. If you follow the media, you know that the couple packs a powerful punch. Being highly visible in the public eye and at the forefront of pop culture has made them a

  • Sock It! — Unusual Uses for Socks
    I’ve had an obsession with socks for as far as I can remember. I bet I was the only 11-year-old I knew who had not one, but two drawers dedicated to socks. Peds, ankle-highs, knee-highs, stockings — you name it, I had it. But my obsession got really intense around 8th grade. Back then, I worshipped Matthew Gray Gubler —  infamous for wearing
