More Than Just Groceries: Essex Street Market

A surprising number of residents seem to be trekking all the way out to Trader Joe's instead of taking advantage of the wonderful and affordable vendors right up the street.

If you for some insane reason already haven't, make your way up to the Essex Street Market.

The grocery vendors have a strong variety of produce, herbs, canned goods, snacks and everything else you need on a weekly basis. Further inside, you'll come across butchers and the such to get some of the best meats and fish in town.

The Essex Market is also home to the Brooklyn Taco stand for a quick lunch and Davidovich Bagels all day for your bagels and lox needs. Porto Rico has amazing coffee for $1.25 and way in the back you can grab an ice cream cone to embrace the approaching summer.

Check out the full list of vendors here

Spring Fever

Spring Fever isn't just a slang term, but an actual medical condition. Symptoms included elevated happiness, urge to exercise, increase sexual desire, and liveliness. In the Huffington post article linked below, this change in mood is due to our eyes taking in more light and effecting the chemicals in our brains. Be aware of your bodies changes and read the article here.

Make the Most of Your Summer

Finals are burning you out and all you can think about are those summer days just weeks away that you'll be spending in the sun or laying around at home. Yes, a few naps and freedom from deadlines is well deserved, enjoy it! But are you really going to spend all those months hanging around?

As a college student, you should be exploring your options and embracing your ambitious goals and dreams. Look for a summer job or internship, make the most of your days outside of the classroom.

Make the effort to find a job in a field you have an interest in, not just a mind-numbing afternoon buffer to get you off the couch. If you are interested in an internship, make sure you can get college credit for it if it's not paid. Don't sign up for "experience" alone.

I personally used this site, to find internships and jobs in fields I may want to work in down the road. Remember, you don't have to work specifically in a field you're studying in school! Be curious!

Here are some other sites you may want to check out that were suggested on the Huffington Post:

7 Foods to help improve concentration.

The end of the semester is approaching and so begins the last push that will test our mental, physical, and emotional capacity. I've compiled a list of foods that can help improve your concentration and help you finish that final project.

1) Coffee. We all know caffeine is great for those early mornings after a late night. The only reason I mention caffeine is because too much can cause you to be unproductive. So watch the caffeine intake.

2) Glucose. Glucose are the natural sugars found in fruits (oranges, apples, or bananas). While sugar infused energy drinks can be helpful for staying awake, too much can in fact cause you to be unproductive. So watch the sugar intake as well. 

3) Breakfast. More specifically cereal. A High-fiber, dairy and fruit breakfast will improve concentration throughout the day. Outshine your classmates while they are daydreaming and you impress the professor because you are alert enough to laugh at his jokes. 

4) Fish. The omega-3 oil found in fish is essential for enhancing memory. Treat yourself to sushi twice a week to gain long term effects of a powerful memory.

5) Chocolate and nuts. Both these foods are rich with antioxidants which maintain long-term brain health. Also, enjoying an ounce of dark chocolate a day gives your the proper caffeine boost without any negative effects on your pants size.

6) Avocado and Whole Grains. These foods improve blood flow throughout your body giving your brain cells an extra boost. 

7) Blueberries. Blueberries are an amazing food that when eaten throughout a lifetime maintain muscle and brain health. Get into the habit of eating blueberries weekly.

Lastly maintaining a good sleep schedule, exercising everyday, staying hydrated, and taking a few moments everyday to relax are habits that will promote life-long health and improve concentration for finals. Here is my source.

Goodbye Roseland!

The Roseland, the historic venue will hold it's last concert tonight, with Lady Gaga. For the last week this concert hall has had completely sold out performances by the famous Lady Gaga and now it is time to say goodbye!

In November 2013, it was announced that Lady Gaga would headline six shows, and these shows will be the final performances at the venue. Additionally a seventh show was added to be held on April 7. This officially is the last performance held at this venue. 

The Roseland Ballroom has been around since 1917 and 95 years it has created a lot of great memories for many New Yorkers. 

According to some news articles the space of the Roseland will be used to create a new apartment complex. 

That's very sad!
