One way ticket

  July 15, 2015  1:30 AM- We leave the house. I only had 30 minutes of sleep because I was up packing. My parents had a short nap. They insisted that they drop me off at the airport even though my flight was at the crack of dawn. I felt a bit guilty but also a bit relieved. Why I chose this flight? I’m not…

When did it all change for you?

Sometimes it’s as if streetart is speaking to me. Take this photo for example. I took it while wandering the streets of the Arts District in Los Angeles (when I was there in April). I found it interesting at the time but I didn’t think too much of it until I came back to NY from LA. As I slowly phased out of vacation mode…. everything seemed to make sense….

The most romantic thing

“I want to learn about life with you” he said as he leaned against the wall. “Hmm?” I turned around to face him, wondering if I heard him correctly. “You heard me, I want to learn about life with you. I think it would be fun to learn and go through life together. To share life experiences with each other.” I was speechless. Who says that…

That kind of Woman

“You look posh” he said as he looked at the screen and showed me this photo. “Me, Posh?” I thought to myself. And there I was, caught off guard and caught in the moment. I barely recognize myself because I look so relaxed and comfortable with where I am. I’m just doing what I usually do- thinking- only this time it’s while staring off into the blue…

west coast here I come

I never thought I’d say this but I’m excited to visit LA. I’ll be there for the next week. When I was there last time I would get anxiety about how calm I was. I felt antsy. Restless. Unproductive. “I’m too young to feel relaxed” I’d think to myself. “I need to get to a certain point and accomplish a certain amount for me to…

Re-try

If a webpage doesn’t load, we hit the “try again” button until it loads. Why not hit that same “try again” button if something doesn’t work, in life?

Stop and Think

I just renewed my domain for another year. I guess you’re stuck with me writing at inbusinessandlife.com for the year ahead. I’m not giving up on this blog 🙂 With this renewal I’d like to share something with you- a secret-that has guided me in writing blog posts. Before I publish a post, I always ask myself, “Did you THINK?” Here is how it was…

HFI? What’s that?

If you google “HFI” you’ll get a couple different things: Hereditary fructose intolerance. Health facility institute. Also there’s er…..Hepatitis Foundation International. None of these are what this blog post is about. What I’m referring to is what my friend called me: Highly Functioning Individual. I had no idea what it was when he said it either. He kindly explained it to me: So there you…

This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was different this year for me. It was the first time I was staying in the city and wasn’t spending the holiday and days off with my family. I didn’t mind it so much at first but after seeing everyone else with their families or traveling to see their loved ones, I couldn’t help but think about what was missing. But then I realized how thankful and lucky…

kindness matters

  Today was quite a strange day. Eventful, but strange. I’m at home now, recounting today’s activities and there seems to be the overarching message of kindness. I just had to blog to share with you.
