One Ok Rock in NYC

One OK Rock VIP Pass

I’m holding my One OK Rock VIP Pass

One OK Rock came to New York City on February 9 to perform at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square. My friends and I bought our VIP passes the moment they went on sale in September 2013.

I’d already taken a picture at Platform 9¾ in London’s King’s Cross Station in 2008, flown to Chicago to see Harry Potter: The Exhibition in 2009, been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando last year, and scored an early invite (and got sorted) into Pottermore this year.

Hah-vud Yahd

When I visited my friend in Boston, one of our first stops was Harvard University, where she works. She took me around their beautiful campus. We chilled at the Yard and pretended to study with all the students. Though, I’m sure they could tell we weren’t with all the pictures I was taking. We checked out the farmer’s market and bought some local chocolate.

Pooh lives by the Science Center

Pooh lives by the Science Center

But, my favorite was the Winnie the Pooh stuffed toy that lived in a tree by the Science center. If you look carefully at Pooh’s “House,” you can see Piglet’s tail sticking out under the bottom of the door. It seems someone shut him inside without making sure he was perfectly in
