Modernization in the Passenger Aviation Industry

Gone are the days of travel agents, fancy meals, and cigarettes at 35,000ft. The highly debated Aviation Industry has experienced several growing pains, while pushing the boundaries of digital transformation for the last century. In 2019 pre-pandemic times, this behemoth global market was estimated at over $800 billion in annual revenue with over 4.5 billion […]

A Bad Day Skiing Beats a Good Day at Work

The transition to remote work for many of us opened opportunities to spend more time at home, or the mountain, and provided added flexibility to our working hours. You may be surprised to learn that digital transformation has come to not just the workplace, but also the ski industry.

House of Mouse: Magic Band Addition

If you have yet to go to any of the Disney Parks and Resorts, I strongly suggest you integrate it into your future vacation plans. While kids clearly love Disney, I’d argue that Disney is just as much for adults, if not more (you’ll usually find me in the Tequila Cave in the Mexico Pavilion […]

flat tummy tea-ns

A couple of weeks ago I watched “Eighth Grade” (trailer below), which captured the utter anxiety and insecurity that middle school is ripe with. What really gave me anxiety though was just how much social media plays a huge part in amplifying these, so much so that after the film ended I thanked the fates […]

Did HR just like my photo?

Let’s be honest we have all done it or at least thought about it…is my company creeping on my social media accounts? Is this recruiter going to look me up on Facebook after this interview? These are the typical thoughts going through a professional’s mind living in the social media obsessed age. I can only […]

Weather is Coming

There are some things you should know about me. Besides the fact that I boast a lot about being from Chicago and can absolutely be won over with chocolate and peanut butter, my favorite celebrity is Ginger Zee. While she may not be your typical red-carpet celebrity, she’s my inspiration (and just happens to share […]

So…..Thoughts?

*Record Scratch* *Freeze Frame* You’re probably wondering how I got here. Well, let me explain…. While picking my classes for my last semester at Boston College I knew that I needed both a Marketing elective and an Info Systems elective. I scrolled endlessly through the ‘Course Information and Schedule’ tab on agora until I came […]

Guac Greens with Extra Blockchain, Please

Snapchat calls itself a camera company. Who’s to say that Sweetgreen can’t call itself a tech company? I automatically assume that Sweetgreen begs no introduction, particularly on BC’s health obsessed, trend magnetic campus. However, if you’ve yet to venture across Route 9 to Chestnut Hill Square, I’ll give you the brief lowdown. Sweetgreen (or ~stylized~ […]

Ultra Successful

**Just a heads up, I wrote this while the music festival took place this weekend and that is why it focuses partially on 2017. Also, my hyperlinks were not working so all of my sources are at the end of the blog.** This weekend, Ultra Music Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary in Miami, Florida. Ultra […]

Shut up and Take my Money

Venmo is life.

#TBT: Stop reminding me

With the popularity of Instagram and Twitter and Facebook came a new app a few years ago: Timehop. Timehop SWEPT through my social circle with intense popularity. The premise? Remember all of the fun, cool things you posted on the internet one year ago today! Or all the years ago today! HOW FUN! Okay, I’m […]

Twitch – It’s a Good Day to be a Gamer, and It’s Only Getting Better

Imagine a huge football stadium, a stadium just like this, packed with people; and everyone has his or her attention only, only on you —- PLAYING VIDEO GAMES. Just let that thought sink in a little. IT’S PRETTY DARN COOL RIGHT?! Then it gets a little creepy, and that’s when you stop thinking about it. […]

First Blog Ever

Check one two… Believe it or not, this is my first blog post ever. Guess it might be a move out of my comfort zone, haha! Although I have read quite a few blog posts including posts for this class, sitting down and actually writing one takes me to another level. It is not like […]

Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone

I am fired up about this class to say the least. As a New York sports fan it is definitely one of the more exciting things going on in my life right now. I have been active on social media since high school, so I am familiar with several different platforms. But this class is […]

Initial Thoughts: Curious and Overwhelmed

As we start off the year in ISYS6621: Social Media and Digital Business I think my feelings are somewhat constricted when I tried to create a title for this post. As a Senior, I like to think that I’ve gotten the whole BC class formula down: Read the syllabus, note the exam days, and read […]
