Sacred Heart High School
Favorite Place on Campus:
Hmmmm… That’s tough, so I’m giving two answers. Most specifically, the upstairs front porch of Blair House, which my friends and I referred to as The Monocle. My less abstract and less fun answer: The 5th floor of the Weinberg Memorial Library, which is gorgeous, comfy, and most importantly silent. This last part is key when trying to read two-hundred pages of Samuel Richardson.
I wrote album and concert reviews for the university’s newspaper, The Aquinas. As a staff writer I was also able to interview incoming bands and artists, such as Andrew McMahon of Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate. I was also active with the school's literary journal, Esprit.
Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, Flyers, and Sixers.
White Noise, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, 1Q84, A Room of One’s Own, The Scott Pilgrim series, and the Harry Potter series.
Animal Collective, The Strokes, Ariel Pink, The Beatles, Kanye West, ASAP Rocky, The Beach Boys, The xx, Elliot Smith, Joanna Newsom… I could go on for days.
Moonrise Kingdom, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill 1&2, The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Life Aquatic, The Departed, Eternal Sunshine, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Kill!, and Harakiri.
