Things I learn from my Rare Specimen (that apply in business and life)

Turns out that my heart was damaged in all sorts of ways when I left New York. Needless to say, moving to LA was a good restart for me. LA is where I met my rare specimen- someone who seems too good to be real, but indeed exists. (more of my rare specimen dictionary here) Yes, we’re long distance, but ever since he entered my…

Something every 20 something should be doing

Struggling. Yep. Struggling. It’s hard because in our 20’s especially, we millennials (or at least I) feel the pressure to “have it all together”, in business and life, for our peers after graduation but the truth is, you’re not supposed to have it all together. Your twenties is about you trying and failing and figuring out what is right for you though trial and error….

Why I write

There are a lot of things I could be doing, but I choose to write. Here’s why:

The Rare Specimen Vocabulary

I love words. I love vocabulary. I always have since I was younger (spelling bees and the reading section on the SAT were actually fun for me). I like learning the etymology of words and understanding the definitions. Lately I’ve been making up my own words, because sometimes there just aren’t words that already exist to describe new and incredible things/feelings. Since having my Rare Specimen (significant…

Thoughts on Soulmates

Remember when I made a friend in an Uber Pool car ride and a couple of weeks later we had a small dinner party together? We talked about soulmates that night. And the way she described it has changed what the word means to me since. (Soulmate. I know. It’s an intense word but I’m going to write about it). Cheers to special moments shared with…

First post of 2016

I’ve been thinking a lot about 2016 and the things I want to improve on this year. They’re not resolutions, rather, they’re things I’ve been working on for years now but hope to really solidify into my habits with renewed focus and commitment this year. Within my theme of Focus and Discipline, in 2016 I’d really like to focus on Creativity. I was listening to this podcast…

Goodbye 2015. 

What a difference a year can make. What a difference a few months can make! This year in 2015, almost halfway through the year, I completely uprooted myself to a new city and “started again.” I’ve made new friends, dusted off some older connections, began a new relationship and new job and slowly grew out of the skeleton of “New York Andrea.” 2015 was about…

On my radar: Zen Pencils

Someone sent me a comic that described exactly how I felt. And then I spent the next few minutes clicking around the site that it came from. Usually when I click around aimlessly on a site, I end up regretting it but every moment spent on this site, Zen Pencils was totally worth it. They’re quotes in cartoon form. If you couldn’t tell, I’m kind…

Confident

That photo up there ^ is….: 1) One of the rare occasions you’ll see me all dressed/gussied up. 2) One of the few selfies of me that exist (I rarely take them). I felt confident and attractive at that moment so I decided I would capture it. As I write this I’m not wearing any makeup. My hair is tied up in a messy bun….

Bruce Lee 75

Today, November 27th, would’ve been the 75th birthday of the man and legend, Bruce Lee.  I haven’t watched all of his movies and I don’t know every detail of his life (though I did see “Kung Fu,” a play based on him), but I think it’s pretty obvious why I (among many others) respect, appreciate and admire him. Before he passed in 1973, the legendary martial artist played…
