Wow! I am really crossing my fingers that everyone was able to come through to Career Jam this past Friday…
Because Career Jam was poppin’ this year! Why, do you ask? Lemme give you the rundown:
By John Mirisola
Many in the Berklee community, together with countless friends and family members from across the globe, are celebrating the life of Carla Whitney Nelson ’18, who passed away on February 11 following a long battle with cancer. Throughout her illness, the 24-year-old producer, singer-songwriter, and visual artist continued to make music and art, and to document her story. Carla’s irrepressible creativity, her passion and strength, and her abundance of love and compassion for those around her will be remembered by all whose lives she touched.

From bustling Friday mornings at Starbucks, to unplanned jam sessions in the basement of 150, Berklee Boston was constantly delivering on its promise of being an eventful and unique Berklee experience for its undergraduate students. The state of the art facilities and resources were one of a kind and students received the best contemporary arts education in the world. How could you possibly top that?
Add an afternoon siesta to it coupled with beautiful winters, a stunning campus, performance opportunities like no other and the ability to travel all around Europe for half of what your textbooks for 4 years of college cost. That is, Berklee Valencia.

Micki Miller: Who is she? An underground-music sensation, Micki has stolen the hearts of thousands with her soul-clenching music and inspiring lyrics. She is an advocate for love and strength, which has propelled the project of the Micki Miller Ensemble at Berklee into the spotlight.
So where did she come from? How has she made a name for herself? Why can’t we get enough of her?

I guess I’ve been having too much fun with this blog, because after writing the last one, I got sick and was mostly in bed, or complaining about not being in bed. I practiced the well-known routine of chicken soup, tea with lemon and ginger, and Amazon Prime movies with 4 stars ratings and above, which only disappointed me half of the times. For the other half, I felt much worse after, and promised myself to never again watch another Amazon movie when I’m sick (I’m quite certain that some actively raised my fever).
Failing film-recuperation, I figured I might as well write my next blog while I’m in bed, but unfortunately the muse didn’t strike me. You would think that being sick and all, I would be inspired to write some serious profound observations, but all I could come up with was a few topics from episode 6: “Shingles. Israel. Floriana. Billiard. Mona’s”. And then: nothing.
