Slide into my DM’s

The topic for this blog came about because of a joke going around my office the past couple of weeks. For the past six months, I’ve been planning the annual Graduate Student Ball that just occurred the first weekend of April. While discussing who was bringing what date, I kept telling everyone I was bringing […]

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 […]

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~ […]

More questions than answers

In reflecting on this semester’s Social Media and Digital Business course, I feel like I am walking away with more questions than answers. I mean that in a very positive sense. What I have taken from this class is not all of the answers about how social media and digital businesses will affect our identities and societies in the future, but instead it has instilled a curiosity and inquisitiveness in me to continue to think about these issues in the future.

#Blessed to Be Digital

As I am sitting down to write this post in a Starbucks, I can’t help but notice the long line of people waiting to order at the register. I find it quite weird – I don’t remember the last time I had to stand in a line at Starbucks, I just order ahead through the mobile […]

Brands & Influencers: How they help each other make $$$

Last week, Amazon launched a Social Media Influencer program. The program will allow the influencers to earn fees for purchases that were made through their social media accounts and posts. Amazon will also assign a custom URL for the customers who would want to shop a certain influencer’s feed. Unlike the existing Amazon Affiliates program […]

Tumblr ≠ Teenage Angst?!

I admit it. I was one of those high school teenagers that jumped on the Tumblr trend, constantly browsing through pretty outfits, inspiring quotes and TV show GIFs during class and study breaks. But after so many years, I really thought the presence of Tumblr was long gone…in fact, it was only on spring break […]

Podcasts – Pay to Play

The podcast industry is changing and someday we will look back in disbelief at the decade where endless amounts of high quality content was accessible at virtually no cost to the consumer.

I went Digital, and never went back.

Going Digital When I graduated from college in 2012, I was faced with the daunting task of figuring out the next big step and getting my first “real world” job. My active search resulted in two opportunities – one where I could join the accounting division of Ernst&Young, and another one where I could join […]

Initial Thoughts

There is absolutely no way I am going to my ten-year high school reunion this summer. Okay, so it is over 3,000 miles away in Dublin, Ireland, but even if it was easier to get to, I am not entirely sure what the point would be. I don’t feel the need to reconnect with my […]

Photographing Strangers (Take 2)

After a good deal of sweating and heart palpitations, my individual presentation is over! Woohoo! I survived! Due to the brevity of the presentation, I’m taking this blog post to elaborate on some of the research I did when exploring my topic– photographing strangers. Just in case you were as tired as I am when 8 […]

The Power of the Finsta

Finsta: For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a Finsta is a fake Instagram. The first time I made a Finsta was as a joke with my friend. We didn’t follow the conventional method of posting outwardly embarrassing photos, but we did post a collection of photos we didn’t want to purposely show others. We […]

One Tweet at a Time

Twitter has been in the news a lot lately for its possible takeover, live streaming, changing character limits, etc. Seeing so many things changing with Twitter, I started to wonder what it is about this platform that keeps me coming back to it. I think the reason Twitter is my social media platform of choice is […]

Posted Up In Hillside

“When I was abroad and didn’t have wifi for one or two days, I would miss so many Instagrams” my friend Christina mused. We sat in Hillside with our New England Classics in one hand and our phones in the other. “And then when I would finally get wifi,” she continued, her eyes bulging, “I […]
