    It’s 5:45 pm on Friday, August 11, and I am seated at a local restaurant, awaiting my order.

    Straight across from me is a large projection screen showing pregame of the Pittsburgh Steelers versus New York Giants.

    As the sideline …

  • New Instagram Feature Will Allow You to Add Guests to Your Live Stream!

    I feel as if there is something new being added to social media every day and today is no different. Recently, I saw an article on PR Daily and the Verge that talked about a new Instagram feature that should …

  • Staying PRoductive

  • Going in and Learning through Lessons

    When first beginning the search for an internship I often pondered the idea of what I might be  doing. More often than not that consisted of questions such as, will I get coffee for the office?  will I be in …

  • I’ll Miss the View

    So it’s moving day. I can’t escape moving recently, but life goes as it goes, does it not?
