Following Fashion: An Arts Reporter’s Journey to New York

When I was a child, clothing simply kept me warm. As I grew up, clothing helped me bridge the gap between awkward child and somewhat trendy teenager. Come high school, fashion had become a fascination of mine.

Kylie Helped Put Khalid in a New ‘Location’

The day of his high school graduation, in El Paso, Tex., Khalid Robinson got more than just a diploma; Kylie Jenner played his song “Location” in one of her Snapchats, and the rest is slowly becoming history.

“Minutes before I’m getting ready to walk, I’m checking Snapchat and I see she typed ‘Khalid,’ ‘Location’ in the box,” the 19 year-old recalls. “All throughout my life, it was always a whole bunch of people telling me that I can’t do something.

My Last Moments in New York and Other Updates

My final week in New York City flew by so fast, that I barely had time to catch my breath. My partner came to the big apple for a week-long vacation in the city before heading back to Canada's capital with me. We spent the gloomier days visiting cultural landmarks, such as the Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and days with good weather were reserved for early morning talkshows and strolls through Central Park.

Week Four in New York City: #Midterm

Last week was insanely busy, what with an event to cover on Monday, the writeup due the following day and my midterm review anticipated for Thursday. In order to rest up for work, after grabbing a quick bite at the dinning hall, I spent most of my evenings in bed with my beloved partner that has yet to fail me, Netflix – aside from that time they figured out I was cheating on them with their French twin via VPN, but those days are long gone.
