Places to eat near bookcon Do not eat inside of Javits. It is pretty expensive and not all that good. If you're looking for quick places to pop out for lunch I highly recommend Sunac. Walk outside of the Javits door and you'll see 11th Ave. Take a left and... Continue reading

I've been making the effort to cut out added sugars to my diet for various reasons. It's really amazing how you don't realize how there's sugar in everything (potato chips?! wtf?!) until you scrutinize those labels pretty carefully.

Travel is totally fun but what's not fun is we lose out on the conveniences of our dwelling: easy access to an outlet to charge our electronic devices. Yeah. Admit it, you've totally been guilty of searching the airport terminal for an outlet to plug in that phone, mp3 player... Continue reading

Do you mean the sheet was too thick and it's stuck between the punch? Could you clarify a bit? If the former what I normally do is tap a screwdriver underneath the punch until it loosens. Let me know!

Hi grace! Have you tried double tapping the stylus on your iPad? I've actually never tried the program with a stylus but when I use my fingers I have to double tap and on the second tap I keep my fingers down on the screen. I think you'd do the same with your stylus. Double tap to draw. Let me know if that works!
