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…
View from the Top
If it wasn’t already obvious, I’m a sucker for a view. Someone visiting from Korea asked me what he should go explore. As an inveterate walker and lover of the city, I offered to take him around today.

This way to Happiness
Saw these “signs” written on the wall and sidewalk as I was out and about the city this morning. It makes you realize how easily you can become jaded here (or anywhere else).
