Morning Special

Not too long ago, I saw someone’s post about a “morning special” in Manhattan’s Koreatown. Since I found myself awake at 5 AM this morning, I figured today would be a good day to take advantage (and make an adventure out) of this morning special. I took my time getting ready, had a leisurely and comfortable commute into the city and got to New Wonjo…

Mental Un-clog

Yesterday, I took the day off.  Yes, it was a Wednesday, smack in the middle of the week, but I needed a mental health day where I had time –the day- alllllllllll to myself. I felt a bit uncomfortable asking for one but my mind and body was just overloaded. I just had to. Thankfully my boss said yes. (I was surprised but sincerely grateful)….

Workout advice via work email

These days I’m feeling healthier and happier than ever before. Yes, there are days when I struggle to get out of bed (mostly because it’s dark and cold) but once I do, I’m feeling energized and ready to take on the day. My last blog post talks about how I wrote myself a manifesto and how I am taking full and serious responsibility for my…

A little bit of sunshine

Last night my friend and I went for a run around 11 pm. While we were walking towards the starting point, two strangers stopped us: “Hey ladies, would you like sunflowers?” The request was so friendly and unexpected we didn’t know what to say but “Aw we’d love to but we’re going for a run!” They told us “We’ll put them right on this stoop…

On my Mind: Tech-life balance

We live in a world where information and data is inextricably linked to our personal lives. It’s no longer just about work-life balance but about tech-life balance. As it becomes easier to attain information at our fingertips and easier to become lazy and inactive, the importance of unplugging and connecting offline is greater than ever. No more spending hours checking and sending emails or trolling…

FIT- love yourself

I was going through my photos when I came across these pictures I took of FIT dorm bulletin boards around Valentine’s day. Usually Valentine’s Day is about celebrating significant others and loved ones in your life but on FIT campus it was all about celebrating and loving yourself, first and foremost. It’s a message I think we often forget and often need to be reminded…

30 day challenge

In about a month from today, I will be graduating from college, ending a four-year long journey. I’ve known that this was coming but as it comes closer and closer I find myself feeling a storm of excitement, anxiety and expectation. Whenever I feel like this I tend to start reading articles or turn to TED talks for some perspective. (does anyone else do this?…

Has it really been days since I posted? Anyway, I’ve been awake since about 3 AM and in an effort to fully regain consciousness I started to click through some random youtube videos. The first couple were ridiculous. Some were funny but I finally came across this one and I think it’s something we all need to hear.

Chop Chop

I’m a salad fiend so the other day I thought I’d try to make a different kind of salad, inspired by Whole Foods. Result: I made what could roughly estimate to be about a weeks worth of detox salad: a light and energizing salad that is vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, soy-free. Ingredients and better pictures here I’m not vegan by any means and I don’t usually…
