i’m not a gambler

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

But I must admit there was one thing I was excited to do during my very first time at a casino – throw some quarters in a machine, pull a lever, watch my luck flash before my eyes and hope that millions of dollars would come spilling out faster than my hands could grab it. […]

lucy the elephant

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

I’d like you to meet Lucy the elephant… She is a little tourist attraction between OC and AC in Jersey. She used to be a hotel and now she is a museum. I had seen her on t-shirts before, but never understood the story or where she came from. She has definitely had a pretty […]

ocean city

Monday, October 26th, 2009

In September during one of my first years in college in Philly, my South Jersey friends took me “down the shore” for the first time. On the way down, I asked them what it was like and they told me there were numbered streets, wooter ice, funnel cake (aka fried dough) and of course, a […]

A new U.N. environment report revealed that healthy oceans are one of the keys to combating climate change and preventing the destruction of marine life could help offset between 3 to 7 percent of current fossil fuel emissions.

rugby, an olympic sport

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

If you haven’t heard, rugby sevens is officially an Olympic Sport. And as you probably know, I love rugby so this news makes me pretty happy. A whole new world was opened for me when I joined the women’s team at SJU. Before college, I didn’t even know what a rugby ball looked liked. I […]
