What Would Susan B. Anthony Say to Trump?

Kristen Webster – Rochester, NY

Despite having lived in Rochester for the past four years, I’ve never made a formal visit to the gravesite of Susan B. Anthony prior to November 8. That day marked the first election I voted in, and the first election in which America might elect its first female president. It seemed like the perfect time to honor the suffragette for her work nearly 100 years ago.

I wasn’t alone in my desire to thank Susan B. Anthony – hundreds of others gathered there to pay respects. In short, it was a beautiful event. People of all ages and genders formed a line nearly a mile long. My friend and I waited for more than an hour with our fellow feminists and believers in equal rights.

October 5, 2000 – The date which “Gilmore Girls” made its quick-witted (and even more quick-talking) debut, sparking seven beloved seasons, millions of devoted fans and the age-old debate: Dean, Jess or Logan? Continue reading “Photo Gallery: Gilmore Girl for a Day”

Home Sweet Haven

By Alexis Cheney – @Alexis-Cheney

Whereas most of my friends’ apartments could have been clipped from the catalogues of Target and Ikea, my friend Dominic’s abode evokes that of a 19th-century gentleman in his golden years.

The apartment’s sophisticated aesthetic blew me away to the extent that I forgot I was in the bachelor pad of a 20-something-year-old…at the center of Washington, D.C.during the country’s  most charged political period in four years. When I stepped into his apartment, I stepped out of the metropolis’ mania. Continue reading “Home Sweet Haven”

What could you buy with equal pay?

By Becka Wall – @beckawall

Today is Equal Pay Day, the symbolic day when women’s overall earnings “catch-up” to men’s earnings from the previous year. Women are paid, on average, 79 cents to every dollar a man makes – but that’s just scratching the surface. Continue reading “What could you buy with equal pay?”

The Wanderlust Must List

By Lauren Linhard –

I’m back! From where you ask? Ireland – the Emerald Isle, my very first trip abroad. I spent the last two weeks driving through the Irish countryside, exploring gorgeous cultural sights and drinking my way through five Irish cities. It was amazing! And as an added bonus, everything went smoothly because my travel buddy and I were prepared.

Here’s my Wanderlust Must List for getting the most out of your next trip: Continue reading “The Wanderlust Must List”

Around the World in 80 Plates – Levain Cookie

By Bridget Miles –  The Mama Miles Files

Today we’ll be vacationing somewhere inconceivable. Think Wonka Chocolate Factory, but even better. What you eat here just might make you float on air, minus the whole burping to escape spinning blades in an elevator shaft thing. The cookie, a gift sculpted by the Gods themselves, arrived in America thanks to the Dutch. But before we dig in, let’s conduct a bit of a background check on this delicious baked good (of course, thanks to Wikipedia):

Around the World in 80 Plates – Nutella Croissant

By Bridget Miles – Chief Executive Mama of 

Today we are going to my favorite place in the entire world: Italy. There are so many things the Italians do right: wine, pasta, cheese, sarcasm and Nutella. So let’s close our eyes and take a trip to Florence. Imagine yourself sitting on a bench surrounded by beautiful, rustic buildings with the smell of fresh produce from a farm stand and all the while eating a Nutella croissant.

My #BeforeIDie Bucket List

By Jamie Schafer – White Hall, MD

I was recently asked to create a bucket list. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it’s a list of things you want to do/see/accomplish before you “kick the bucket.” At first I was excited and giddy at the idea, but the more I thought about (or over thought) the ideas on my list, I started to panic.

Going the Distance

By Becky Yep – Philadelphia, PA

Four years ago, my boyfriend and I met in our college dining hall through mutual friends, and immediately bonded over our shared hatred of Tom Brady. It was a match made in hog heaven, where the hog was a pigskin and the pearly gates were the doors of our university cafeteria.
