Lately, it seems like Chicagoland has been seeing a lot of the same races. The Color Run, The Hot Chocolate Run, and of course the Chicago Marathon for all you over-achievers.

The Rave Run takes place at night, and according to their website runners will "experience a nocturnal wonderland with 3.1miles of stunning lights and music." It was founded in 2012 by an runner, artist, and insomniac. He succesfully created a 5K that includes the best of all three of these aspects. READ MORE

Steer Away from the Fear of Collapse

Follow the long, twinkling guitar riffs far into the distance, and into the trap where sirens call you with Metric’s “Speed the Collapse.” Let the riffs embrace you as you lie taking in the blue above. Take off running as Emily Haines lifts you high at the end of the path with her hopeful vocals. “Out of my way!” should be the words that emanate from your throat, and into the crowd’s ears as you fight to the end of the week, with fire shooting out of your palms. Don’t crash beneath the storm that falls in the coming weeks. READ MORE

This offbeat venue housed a perfect fit, the cool and unclassified boys from Brooklyn, Ambassadors. Built around brotherhood, the indie four-piece generates a loud and layered sound that borrows bits from multiple genres including funk, soul and dance rock. Growing up in a musical household, brothers Sam (vocals and back up guitar) and Casey Harris (keyboard) started the band, adding friend Noah on lead guitar and eventually Adam Levin on drums.

Whether it is a job interview, meeting new friends, or going on a date; with every encounter you have you are evaluated and another person’s impression of you is formed.  This first encounter is extremely important because a first impression can be nearly impossible to reverse. The opinion the other person forms about you the first moment they meet you will stick with them forever. They will base this opinion on the way you dress, your overall appearance, your body language, and your mannerisms.  With that said, it is important to be aware on how you present yourself to others. Whether they are in your career or social life, it's important to know how to create a good first impression. The following are some tips to help you do this!...
