Love Thy Neighborhood Book Store

Check out this awesome interview The Girl in the Tiny Hat did for Book Culture on the Upper West Side with Annette Akers! Book Culture is a wonderful independent book store with three locations in the city. They give you the love, attention, and books that you so desire! Support is what makes small businesses…

Lookin’ Fresh

In West Philadelphia, born and raised… Just kidding. But for reals, come to my site and check out my new layout! It’s awesome, and well over do. The posts are set up in a unique way, but I kind of like it. I’ve always wanted the “Read More” feature to be an option so you…

Keeping Up With The Joneses

A couple of months ago I started following a few travel and cooking blogs that interested me. Every time I check my email, I have two or more posts from these blogs, and I always think to myself, “Well, shit. There is no way I could post that much.” I’ve learned over the last couple…

Endless Editing Summer

It’s time. It has finally happened. I have real days off!!! I’ve finished my initial school goal, and my days off are no longer spent in classes from early AM to late PM. At this point, I have been in classes so long that I was a little at sea with what to do with…

Final Frontier of Fiction

This is my last semester at my current college, and I have to say the experience has been amazing. Although it has, many times, caused me great stress and frustration, I am leaving with a sense of satisfaction. School, and the piece of paper it comes with, was an abstract idea in my mind before…

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I’ve been in a serious cleaning kick since last semester ended. I’m sure everyone gets to that moment when they feel like they have too much shit cluttering every piece of space in their room/apartment. I’ve thrown out clothes, old electronics, and–here’s the kicker, my peeps–I’ve decided to throw out my old writing journals from…

Fiction Galore

As promised late last year…you’ve got some more fiction heading your way. Written by yours truly, a short story by the name of “Gorilla-Man: A Memorandum” is making its way to the Sidney blog. Depending on how long it is, (cause I forgot, haha), the story will either be in two or three parts. Either…

Social? In the Winter?

I won’t lie, my peeps. This six-week session of school is kicking my ass so hard I can barely sit down. The cause of this equals the effect on my social media output. (Look at me using fancy college language. I feel so…fancy.) Way behind on my Bi-Weekly book recommendations, but alas, a new one…

Sidney’s First Day of School

Here I am on the seventh floor of one of four buildings that make up my college, bored as hell. My first class let out early, so I have over an hour before the next one starts. As I ventured from one building to the next, pondering over what to do besides eat between classes,…
