Stanley Cup Schedule:
Welcome to yet another beautiful day and to the beginning of Memorial Weekend. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this federal holiday, bellow we have posted some information to give you a little more understanding.
Memorial Day: A federal holiday in the United States that commemorates the men and women who died while in military service. Previously known as Declaration day, which honored soldiers in the Union and Confederate armies, this holiday was broadened following WWI to honor all American soldiers.
Usually this weekend is spent gathering with family, going shopping, and celebrating the beginnings of summer. So we hope you made some plans, because this long weekend is looking to be a beauty!
So until Tuesday,
Well we asked for the heat, and we sure got it. Today as people strolled through Boston and the Cambridge area, smiles could be seen from our center windows. We hope you all are enjoying it and are making plans for this Memorial Weekend. If you plan on staying in the city this weekend, here is a link to some ideas that might inspire you:
The Boston Red Sox took on the Cleveland Indians earlier this afternoon and murdered them. Winning 14 to 2, the Red Sox seem to be doing pretty well for themselves. In other news, Monday the 30th is Memorial Day so we hope you have started making plans. While it looks to be a little wet this weekend, temperatures will remain nice and warm, so go out and do something fun! For those of you who are keeping it local, and staying in the city this weekend, just know that this Sunday at 10am is our first round of Soccer Sundays! So come out and join the fun. This activity is free and will be held at Harvard’s Rugby Field. (We suggest map questing it if you decide to come.)
So until tomorrow,
Welcome to a sweltering day here in Boston, MA. We recommend you get out doors and embrace the week that is coming our way. All throughout the week, we should be staying in the warm 70’s and experience maybe one or two thunderstorms. So in order for you to all enjoy your evenings we wish you the best.
Be aware, and proactive many rapture parties should be happening all over the city tonight, seeing as how tomorrow the 21st of May is judgment day. So don’t waste a minute and take advantage of this hysteria and frenzy. For those of you who believe that judgment day is in fact tomorrow, we wish you this best.

To the surprise and dismay of some of us at the center, we recently discovered that one of our own was unaware and to be frank naive to the influence of Lady Gaga. In order to correct this mishap, we decided to devote this blog to the history and influence of Lady Gaga.
Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta was born on March 28th 1986. She became a performer at a young age and since childhood has dabbled in the arts. In high school she was a dedicated, studious and disciplined student, but one who was afraid to show off her eccentricity. After being admitted into New York University’s Tish School of the arts, she began to find her voice and really work on her music. After dropping out of school her sophomore year, she delved into the New York underground and began to develop her image. By 2008 she had released her two singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face” since then her career as an entertainer has sky rocketed and shows no sign of slowing down.
While some of you might be shrugging your shoulders saying, “so what?” let us explain why this pop icon has become so sensational. Besides writing catchy pop tunes, Lady Gaga is a philanthropist, contributing to many humanitarian works and has become a LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgendered) activist. Supporting equality for all, she is a spokes person, activist, and overall amazing woman.
So hopefully this brief post was helpful and if you haven’t already, check her out!

If you found yourself outside today, we here at the center, are very sorry for your troubles. Only 49°F in May, the rain and fog have started this week off on an unfortunate footing. Constantly under a cloud of rain, showers have been on and off, and a light mist has perpetually covered the greater Boston area. While we unfortunately cannot make this bad weather go away, we can hope for the weekend to come faster. Said to be sunny, and quite a bit warmer, we here at the center know that Saturday can’t come fast enough. So in order to pass the time, while stuck in doors, bellow is a lengthy list of articles that we though might be of interest to you. So enjoy and stay dry!

Every culture has their own set of superstitions, random actions or events that are said to lead to some supernatural consequence. In the United States it is believed that if you break a mirror you will receive 7 years of bad luck, if a black cat crosses your path you are marked with bad luck, and one of the most well known superstitions is Friday the 13th or better known as, the day of bad luck.
Today Friday the 13th, many individuals are overcome by fear and avoid their daily routines. Some people avoid means of travel, some plan for disaster and some, the more extreme folk, do not even make it out of bed. Now while we hope you are not that extreme, we here at Boston Life advise to tread carefully.
Bellow is a link to the history of Friday the 13th as well as a link to a number of different cultural superstitions.
