Spring Break Preview

With Spring Break a mere  four days away, my ability to conjure up new, poignant and philosophically-resonant ideas for the ol’ blog has dried up completely. These 250 words are dedicated to the same pursuit as the past three weeks–slog through and let the thought of a week off carry me into the homestretch.

So, here’s what I’m excited for over Spring Break:

  1. For those of you who are longtime followers of my blog (and I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t be), you know that I’m a huge fan of Andrew Rea’s “Binging With Babish” series. I’ve got Rea’s cookbook and I’m armed with a collection of recipes I’ve pulled from the New York Times–all I need is to get out of my dorm and into a place with a kitchen. I can’t wait to get home and try out some of the foods from the silver screen. Up first? The strudel from “Inglorious Basterds” and Il Timpano from “Big Night”.
  2. My family is heading to Chicago for a few days over break and that means a stop at Portillo’s, home of some top-notch dogs. I spent a weekend in Chicago with my best friends last Spring Break and my diet consisted heavily of these. Personally, I’m partial to New York style pizza, but you can’t beat a Chicago dog.
  3. The jewel in the crown of our Chicago trip is going to be, without a doubt, seeing a performance of Hamilton. I know every word of the soundtrack (not a bluff, you can test me on it) and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to get to see it onstage at the PrivateBank Theatre.


Craving more blog-tastic action? Here are some swell links to tide you over until after the break!

  • Feeling a feel-good? Check out “Fitting In”, a photo story! From the mind of a producer who didn’t quite make the cut for USC comes a heartwarming tale of finding our place that will keep you occupied for a good 40 seconds.
  • Out for something ooky-spooky? Shiver as you read “Tales of Greybriar  House”! One man’s attempt to spruce up a glorified mad-lib exercise has never been so spine-tingling.
  • Penchant for pornography? Shame on you. Go read my recap of Dr. Samuel Perry’s “Porn-Again Christians” lecture and delete your browser history while you’re at it.
  • Are you an alphabet amateur, always adamantly aspiring to alliterate almost as adroitly as this awe-inspiring adept? Can’t help you. Some have got it, others don’t.
