Memorial Weekend

27 May

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,

Memorial Weekend Plans

25 May

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,

Homage to Lady Gaga

19 May

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.

History:

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.

Influence:

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!

Until tomorrow,
