The difference between Boyfriend vs Partner

As I’ve gotten older, the way I use and define the word “boyfriend” has changed considerably. When I was younger and more indecisive, it insinuated someone I “hung out with” and liked for the time being. Nowadays it’s gotten even more intense. For me, a boyfriend is a partner. If you’re going to spend that much time, energy and money on another person why would…

STTA-Quarter Life reflections

I’m finally 25 after what seems like an eternity.  Here is a video of what I’ve learned so far and what continues to drive me moving forward. I’ve learned and grown so much in the short time since graduation and I can’t imagine what I’ll continue to discover in the year(s) ahead. Hope you liked the video! This video is dedicated to my rare specimen,…

STTA: Loving someone

Loving someone is really difficult and really scary. But I’m doing it and I’m learning so much (blogpost on what my rare specimen teaches me here) This is basically what it felt like getting into a relationship with him: I’m getting better at it with time. He’s helping me to trust more. You might have been disappointed, you might have been betrayed, you might have been…

The way I love my sister

My sister started college this year the same way I started another “chapter” of my life here in Los Angeles. My sister is 18, 5 years younger than I am and sure, we’ve always had a sisterly bond, but it is now that I can say with absolute confidence that she is one of the most amazing people I have had the privilege to meet in…

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…

TILWIT- Listen to your jealousies

I started a series awhile ago: “Things I’m learning while I’m 20-something (TILWIT)” and didn’t keep up with it because my blog is essentially all about that. I reconsidered and I think I’ll continue with TILWIT to point out specific and reoccurring thoughts. In the time that I have been in New York, I’ve learned that intimidation and jealousy is not necessarily a bad thing. That uncomfortable…

Corporate/life lessons in fable form

This week I attended the 1st Annual NYU/Dartmouth joint career event. I emailed last minute and asked if I could go despite it being sold out because the title, “Adaptive Careers: How to Succeed in a Rapidly Evolving World” caught my eye. I thought it would be relevant to not only myself but also to those of you reading my blog! (You know I’m always looking…

Do Epic Sh*t

I had the opportunity to tag along with one of my editors for Creative Week. Creative Week prides itself for being “where advertising, design and digital media collide with the arts.” This includes a lot of my interests so it was a great first time experience. Since I was one of the few students in attendance I feel almost obligated to share some of the things…

Clothes encounters

I’m usually the one behind the camera (which is why it’s rare that you’ll see photos of me on my blog) but on my third day at New York Fashion Week, I got photographed. Twice!

5 days, 5 lessons

Last week was the first week/beginning of what I would consider to be…. my dream internship. I’ve only been in the office for 5 days in total so far, but it feels like I’ve been there for a month; I’ve done and learned so much already. After a full day of interning and attending a night class to finish off the day, I come home…
