Something’s Gonna Happen

Today’s bound to be one of the most beautiful…

I haven’t posted in a while, but long update short: work at the library has been phenomenal over the past three months I’ve worked there. Kansas City has been amazing, and I am constantly surprised by how much I’d missed this city.
I’m playing my cello again, I’m singing again, I’m chipping away at my student loans and saving at the same time, possible new musical opportunities have appeared-ones that would stretch me as a musician and a person, and I’m getting back in the shape that I used to be last summer.

Yeah. Something’s gonna happen.

New York Mornings

Everyone’s always said that you have a love/hate relationship with New York: you either love it, or love to hate it.
I beg to differ. My two years in NYC were filled with music & laughter, heartbreaks, losses, gains, and the most amazing people I could ask for. While I wasn’t in my element in the City, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Some days I miss New York more than most, and when that happens, I turn to the bittersweet melodies of Elbow’s New York Mornings, to remind me of the experiences & love I had for that city.

Dear New York, 
You haven’t seen the last of me. 
I’ll be back.


Apparently, at the Grammys (which were last night? Saturday? i have no idea.), everyone was pissed that Beck won best album of the year over the typical radio-saturated artists like TSwift, Beyonce, Childish Gambino, and whoever else the masses are in love with.
Frankly, I don’t give a damn. I like Beck. I like Beyonce. …I don’t really like TSwift, but I respect her as being good at what she does. I’m in love with Childish Gambino (no seriously. Donald Glover…yeah he’s amazing)
Therefore, I’m just going to bring back a timeless classic from the 90s.

Give it up for Beck’s “Loser.”

This is amazing.

An artificial limb can cost more than a car.

And there are an estimated 2 million amputees in the United States alone.

So for Jeff Huber, an entrepreneur who had dabbled in education and advertising who happens to also an amputee, this market was close to heart.

While an undergraduate at North Carolina State University, he had long thought about how to make prosthetics at a fraction of their current costs in emerging markets. But he wound up dropping out to do an online education startup called Knowit and then working on data-driven marketing at MightyHive.

After leaving last year, he returned to tinkering on his old ideas around affordable artificial limbs. Now Huber’s work has become a startup called Standard Cyborg that’s backed by Y Combinator. He’s still the sole founder and employee.

For most of his life, Huber has used a prosthetic leg. He was born with a congenital birth defect that left…
