HOW TO SAY GOODBYE

HOW TO SAY GOODBYE

On Saturday morning I got up to take video of the Tar Heel 10 Miler.  I’m working on a package about the sweetest family who races for their daughter who is non-verbal and has cerebral palsy.  My friends thought I was crazy considering we stayed up way too late the night before, but it didn’t [...]

MY NETFLIX FAVORITES

MY NETFLIX FAVORITES

(image courtesy of Lifewire) Most of the time, when my mom sends me a text asking what I’m doing on a Friday afternoon, I’m probably watching Netflix.  It seems crazy that my sophomore year of high school I asked ever so hesitantly for a Netflix account, and my mom automatically agreed.  I was way too [...]

Every summer

Every summer

For me, summer means New York. And not the city.  Olcott, New York. The small town sits about 45 minutes from Buffalo, situated right on Lake Ontario, and it’s my own personal heaven. My parents both grew up here and had the typical small town life. There is one elementary school, one middle school, one [...]
