I’m sticking around town this weekend to volunteer at the High Line and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. NYC is going to be a ghost town though, so I expect the next few days… [Read More]

How To Get The Most Out Of A Weekend Getaway

How To Get The Most Out Of A Weekend Getaway

Gone are the days of scheduling as many classes as possible on Tuesdays and Thursdays to maximize our time off. (Cherish it while you can, college kids!) Saturdays and Sundays are precious as an adult. It’s our time to relax, recharge, and have some fun. I love to travel though which means I try to… [Read More]

Shadowbox NYC

Fencing In Bryant Park

Fencing at Bryant Park

Way back in my middle school days, we spent a week or two out of the school year learning how to fence in P.E. with foam sabers.
