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…

My first ever post on Quora

I’ve definitely mentioned this before, but I’ve been on Quora, admiring from afar for quite some time now. The content I read on the app/site resonates with me and it never fails to give me that dose of humanity. I’ve never felt so connected to an app. I’ve sung its praises in a previous post here. So after being a reader, I finally mustered up the courage…

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…

It’s not the journey or the destination…

With any life change, transition or awe inspiring moment, cliche sounding quotes and sayings are sure to follow. Some fitting examples of inspiration guiding my relocation to LA from NYC: There are a million sayings that can apply to this LA adventure of mine… One quote in particular that has really struck me is: Not because it’s the most relevant, but because I actually kind of…

LA vision board

I’ve had quite the imagination ever since I was young. I used to go through catalogs that advertised houses and home goods, clipping out items for “my dream home,” flipping through magazines for photos that caught my eye and words that described the kind of person I wanted to be. There was even a point when every inch of my room during high school was…

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…

Good bye 2014

I was looking through my photos and scrolling through my instagram when I realized I hardly recognize who I was a month ago, let alone a year ago. Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself and thought:”wow I feel like a completely different person now. That feels like ages ago?” That’s how I have felt this entire year after every challenge (which was basically…

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…

On My Radar: Donald “Drawbertson”

This image popped up on my newsfeed the other day and I was immediately smitten. How whimsical, fun and colorful! “Who made that!?” I wondered. Seeing drawings like these always brings me back to the days when I myself was doing fashion illustrations in school. My favorite medium was always gouache and watercolor although I always had difficulty controlling the medium. Donald Robertson, aka Donald “Drawbertson” seems to have…
