2011: Year in Review

So, months have passed since my last blog post. I know…I call myself a “blogger” and don’t blog. One of my New Year’s resolutions (I swear!) is to get back to writing again. It always made me feel better and I’m not sure why I stopped. 2011 has been a bittersweet year for me. A few great things happened but a few not so great things happened too:

Great things from 2011:

  • I met Dave Matthews in April.
  • Spent 6 nights this summer at Dave Matthews Band Caravan shows in Atlantic City, NJ and Randall’s Island, NY.
  • Attended my first Phish show ever at Madison Square Garden for their New Year’s run.
  • Started, which turned into with the new Facebook timeline change.
  • Lost 40 pounds.

Not so great things from 2011:

  • Ended friendships with two girls I went to high school with due to a Facebook misunderstanding in August. If something like a Facebook status is going to make them not want to talk to me anymore, then they never were truly my friends.
  • Stopped speaking to three people that I sincerely trusted and respected who pretty much screwed me over in February. They are completely two-faced and I don’t need people like that in my life. I’m glad I saw their true colors when I did and I just wish everyone else eventually does too.
  • Stopped blogging regularly. I miss it.
  • Gained 40 pounds back.

Although meeting Dave is worth 10 great things, and seeing a live Phish show was on my bucket list, I wish there were more things listed on the great list. That being said, I can’t live in the past and can only look forward to the future. Excited to see what 2012 has in store.

10 Years. Never Forget 9/11.

10 years ago this morning, around 8:50am, I was bringing the daily commercial logs into the 102.3 WBAB studio and saw the first tower on fire on the TV. They thought it was a small plane that just had an unfortunate accident. I stayed in the studio watching the tower with smoke billowing out into…

Where’s Becky?

All is well with me, just super-busy for the last two months. Spending lots of time writing blogs and Facebook updates for clients, no time for my own! Just wanted to let you all know that I’m alive, just haven’t had time to post anything significant on here. I do post on Twitter at least once a day, so if you miss me, make sure to connect with me on there! :)

How Did I Ever Survive Without Spotify?

I am TOTALLY geeking out this week. Really, more than normal. First, there is Google+ which is taking up all of my free time. Then comes Spotify, which basically makes pretty much every song ever recorded 15 million songs available to stream on demand on your computer. For FREE!!! Since getting my account, it has taken my 3,500 song iTunes library and multiplied it by…a lot.

HOW TO: Transfer your Facebook Friend List To Google+ Using Yahoo Mail

NOTE: Facebook isn’t happy about this workaround and is trying to put a stop to it. I’ve heard it still works for some but not for everyone. Since the recent launch of Google+, Facebook has frantically shut down any Google Chrome extension or tool that allows you to retrieve your friend’s email addresses. They are…

Independence Day 2011: One Year Without My Mom

July 4th was always my Mom’s favorite holiday. I have childhood memories of sparklers and BBQ’s and summertime fun every 4th of July. Last year was the first year I didn’t see her on her favorite day.  She and my Dad had moved across the country to Southern California in September 2009, after years of…

Here is a brief excerpt from my latest Patch blog: I spent much of my free time in the beginning of May walking laps around my neighborhood in preparation for the Nesconset 5K on May 15th. Not only was this race important to me for exercise (which, let’s face it, I NEED) but also since…

Lost Photos in the Move…

Hey everyone! Just switched servers and even though I backed up the files THREE times, apparently, all three times, it missed the 2010 and 2011 photo uploads folder. I have backups of the original files on my computer, but it will take me a little while to re-upload them all. So….if you look at any…

The Affects Of The Main Street Pedestrian Accidents On The People Left Behind

Seamus Byrne

Here is a brief excerpt from my latest Patch blog: The Smithtown Patch headline “BREAKING: Two Young Girls Hit by Car on Main Street” grabbed my attention immediately, not only because it involved children being hurt, but at that exact moment, I was just finishing up an email helping to organize a fundraiser for the…

Dreams Do Come True: I Met Dave Matthews!!!

becky and dave

This past Wednesday evening, April 13th, 2011, something happened. Something big. HUGE. I met DAVE MATTHEWS! That’s right, THE Dave Matthews. Lead singer of Dave Matthews Band. The man. The legend. The moment I had dreamed of for so long actually happened. Of course, in Becky fashion, the whole experience was not without craziness. Here’s the whole story:

My Two Cents on TLC’s Extreme Couponing


For the past few weeks, TLC has been heavily promoting the season premiere of Extreme Couponing and the commercials really peaked my interest. I thought, maybe I’d learn a thing or two about clipping coupons. So, this week, I tuned in to Extreme Couponing and live-tweeted while the episode was on. Since it was hard to get my feelings across in 140 character bits, I thought I would write a post full explaining my thoughts. If you aren’t familiar with the show, each episode documents several “couponers” from obtaining the coupons all the way to the checkout line at the grocery store.

Who You Callin’ Lohan? Lindsay Drops Her Last Name


According to Us Weekly, Lindsay Lohan has decided to follow in the footsteps of stars like Cher, Madonna and Beyonce and just go by Lindsay. That’s right. No Lohan. Just LINDSAY. She IS the most famous Lindsay in the world, however I would say she is more infamous for her failures than famous for her…
