It’s 3:50 am right now. I’m taking a quick break from plowing through a ton of work to write this, but I was listening to a one-hour set by Marshmello from his live performance at Ultra Music Festival 2016. Continue reading
Last night, Big Wild mesmerized an intimate but nonetheless animated crowd at Chicago’s Subterranean. I even got the chance to talk with him briefly after the show and grab a picture. Continue reading
Do you eat food on a regular basis?
Do you live in Atlanta?
Are you a young adult with a voracious appetite?
But is your slim wallet holding you back?
If you answered yes to the questions above, it looks like you and I have a lot in common, and you might be interested in my new food blog, Cat the Critic.
There are few feelings better than finding a logical combination of two of my favorite activities (writing and eating), and that’s the premise on which Cat the Critic was created.
Of course, there will be two chapters: Atlanta and Chicago, and I’ll be filling out the Atlanta chapter for the rest of the summer, as soon as I get over my darned tooth surgery. But come September, I’ll be updating my Chicago chapter as I venture out of its suburbs into the great urban city.
But for folks who live neither in Georgia nor Illinois, fear not, for I will be posting about food videos on Youtube, providing commentary about food trends as they sweep the nation, and more. You don’t have to be where I am to share a universal love of food.
So here’s my sell:
My perspective as a young adult eating on a budget is much different than what you find nowadays online and in magazines.
Some food critics speak with a lofty bias, or force you to pay a fee in exchange for their opinion. Not me.
Yelp and Urbanspoon reviews are helpful in a pinch, but are often based on a single visit, under-developed and not carefully thought through. Not this blog.
Yummy breakfast with one of my favorite people, on a chill morning.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a long time; for the past few days, I’ve been in Illinois for a variety of debate tournaments, and today we are going to talk about my experience there.
First, I went to a tournament where I did not have to debate, which was totally unprecedented. I rarely go to tournaments without the intention of spending 8+ hours everyday immersed in technical and high speed debates. This time, I was along for the ride of a bunch of debaters to help coach younger kids and judge novice debates.
It was a great experience because this was a huge tournament; thus, many of my friends around the country were attending, but I didn’t have anxiety because I didn’t have to debate! I got to hang out with a bunch of my greatest friends. I also had the opportunity to sit in on very high quality debates, which helped me prepare for a separate tournament that I was going to further in the week (I’ll get to that later).
