NYC for the weekend 

By: S. Easley

So this weekend me and my BFF decided to take a trip to NY just to do it. We had both been to NY but never really got a chance to explore and experience it really. While we were there we visited the 9/11 memorial, times square, a park, NYU, got some delicious pizza in Greenwich, went to the Tonic Bar in Manhattan for wings & music and then went to Milk River for drinks which is a restaurant and lounge in Brooklyn.

Here’s some pictures

Made in America Festival 

My Labor Day weekend was spent in Philly at the Made in America festival. I must say it was an amazing experience if you think you love a song just from listening on the radio or whatever you’ll love it even more when you hear it live. It’s almost like hearing all your favorite songs for the first time that kind of feeling.

The first day of the festival which was Saturday (sept. 5) there tons of people. The performances I enjoyed the most that day was Beyonce. I was always kinda a fan but now I’m a 100% in love with her she’s an amazing performer.

The 2nd & last day of the festival was Sunday. There lots of performances. Lolawolf, Post Malone, Future, Big Sean, J. Cole & The Weeknd. The performances were all really good.

I really loved the concept of this concert and the setup. It’s really a good experience you hear new songs, old songs, meet new people, & enjoy the city. I have a few pics & videos I’ll add below


  
  
  
  
  

Puerto Rico

Earlier this month I took a trip with one of my friends to Puerto Rico. I was determined to take this trip before it was time to head to classes for the Fall semester. It’s a beautiful place with beautiful weather. Most of our days were spent watching the sunrise and sunset. We spent our days at the beach and our nights enjoying the nightlife and the people. I’ll definitely go back 😊
