Never would I have expected my phone would go off late Tuesday evening alerting me that an Amtrak train I take regularly had derailed. Does that mean I never considered a derailment as a possible event? Absolutely not. The very sad reality about the horrific events of Amtrak 188 is […]

I’d Still Take The Train Over Anything Else





Well, this is it. Three months left. It’s been one hell of a five-year journey. And over those five years, there’s been one question I’ve been asked more than any: Why did you choose Drexel? The latest occurrence is the Drexel Subreddit. But, it’s a valid question, and one I’m […]

The Last Quarter At Drexel



In case you missed it, SEPTA announced yesterday 24-hour subway service (as in actual trains, not busses) on the weekend is here to stay. No, seriously. I’m not kidding. And that’s huge. Earlier in the week, we got the biggest look we’ve had in a long time at the new […]

24hr Weekend Subway Service on SEPTA is Huge




It’s weird thinking about it, but midterms week at Drexel means I’ve now been back in the US for six weeks. Wow. Doesn’t even remotely feel like that. Then again, it’s hard to believe it’s already week five at Drexel. But, so is the case every term. So, I thought […]

Half Way Through The Term Already? Yep.

As I’ve mentioned on here before, I’m not one to go without cracking off a joke or two about SEPTA. There are times when you’re riding with a rather, shall we say “interesting”, crowd, reliability varies, especially in the on-time category, and we still use tokens (although those should be on […]

Thoughts on SEPTA



Awesome. Mind-blowing. Stunning. Incredible. All gross understatements. Describing the Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses’ performance in Philadelphia may well be impossible to adequately do in just a single word. However, there are two things that are for sure: one, it was the best concert I’ve ever been two, […]

Dear Symphony of the Goddesses, Please Come Back to Philly

If this were a movie rather than a blog, this is where one of those fancy transitions would go. But it’s not. Nonetheless, it has indeed been a month since I’ve last posted. Given that the second to last post made on here was the one celebrating our first birthday, yeah, that […]

One Month Later…

Disclaimer: While I am friends with the producer of the tour, Jeron Moore, this post is being made entirely on my own will. He doesn’t even know this post is going up. In case you haven’t heard, and judging from Twitter’s reaction last night chances are you haven’t, The Legend […]

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses To Stop ...



If you’re one of the few people who really know me, you already know I crack off jokes about SEPTA on occasion, from nothing says “Good Morning, Philly” like equipment problems to the real motto of SEPTA isn’t “We’re Getting There” it’s “We’re Getting There [Eventually]”. But despite the equipment problems, insanely crowded trains […]

You can call me nuts, but I DO miss SEPTA
