The Adventure that is (my)Life

“I love how spontaneous and adventurous your life is” Ha- I wouldn’t say my life is adventurous… I’m not skydiving and eating bizarre foods…From the outside in, all you see are the pretty photos I post on instagram of the things I see or experience here. But yes, I guess it’s relatively true. If there is anything that my life is, it’s one hell of…

Why I moved to LA

To many people, my decision to move to Los Angeles seemed like an impulsive, random and almost reckless decision. In reality, moving was something on my mind for quite some time; I just didn’t know it was going to be LA until that time I visited for a week in April. Fact: I did not move for a significant other. I did not move for a job….

Feel Life

My thoughts today can be summarized through this quote: Don’t sit and wait. Get out there, feel life. Touch the sun, and immerse in the sea.  -Rumi It couldn’t be more fitting for my life right now.  Reminder to self:  Let yourself feel what’s going on around you and inside you. Embrace the unknown. Just do it.  Don’t sit and wait. Get out there.  …

24 in LA

  Today’s my birthday. I am now 24.  It’s also been officially a week since I got here to LA with a one way ticket.  I began the day at the stroke of midnight filled with fear and dread along with excitement. A lot has changed in the last week, let alone the last month. (Is there a word to describe that combo feeling of…

I’m going to Los Angeles

I never thought I would be saying this, but I submitted my notice at work a few weeks ago, bought a flight shortly thereafter, am finishing up the work week and will be flying out to LA Saturday morning to explore opportunities out there.

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…

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?

Crossroads

At the intersection of 168th street and Broadway (in New York) there is a subway station with two tracks and two side platforms. This station is particularly deep and dark, its surrounding energy a bit ominous and not as upbeat as the ones I frequent downtown. Stand above, on one of the bridges that connects the two platforms and you will see trains coming and…
