It’s just one of those days

It’s just one of those days

Sometimes you just have those days I leave work promptly at 7:00 to meet a friend at 7:30 with a normal 30 minute train. Just kidding- next train isn’t for 10 minutes. I give my friend the heads up- I’ll be a little late. 8 minute pass. A train goes by without stopping. 10 minutes … Continue reading

When the smell of gas scares you

When the smell of gas scares you

Today as I turned on my stove this morning to make my breakfast I became shaken and I took an audible gasp . As many of you heard, yesterday morning a building exploded in East Harlem- killing 7 and injuring many. Thank you to all that were concerned about my safety- at the time I … Continue reading

My Last Performance

My Last Performance

Tonight as I left work, I stood in the wings and watched my last Nutcracker. Not only because this is the last weekend of the season, but also because I’m leaving my job. At the end of next week,  I’m not going to be in fundraising anymore (sad), I’m not going to experience all of … Continue reading

Spain & Onward!

Spain & Onward!

Today was a big day on the fifth floor, I booked my next global adventure… Costa Rica! I literally could not be more pumped. What a good day it was indeed. While booking a trip is always a thrill, this one especially is big for me. Let me take you back a step…. August of … Continue reading

Donut Samaritans

Donut Samaritans

As the cold winds move in, I think fondly of warmer days- my days that would start with a Dunkin Donuts unsweet iced tea… No lemon. Yes, I know, this is crazy. First I write about a plant and now I’m writing about tea? Way to take a steep decline… But it’s not just the … Continue reading

Oh hey blog (and my feelings on New York).

I know. It’s been forever. I’m not going to even justify my absence because truthfully, I don’t have to.  But this summer has been an amazing time of growth and joy in my life and I’m really glad I just hunkered down and enjoyed it. But I think I’m back for a little bit more. … Continue reading

While I’ve been away

While I’ve been away

Well, I’ve pulled a muscle in my back and have been confined to my bed. So there is no better time to start writing again right? Truthfully, it is the only way that I’ve stopped in the last couple of months. It has been a complete whirlwind. It definitely has not been an easy few … Continue reading

24

24

Welp, I’m 24. As a wise friend said- it can’t be that bad of a year when you have an TV show named after it. But Taylor Swift also has stopped writing songs about my age soooo yeahhhh. Truthfully though- I had an amazing birthday. Between my surprise birthday party at work, to an evening … Continue reading

When your eyeballs aren’t your own

When your eyeballs aren’t your own

Do you ever have those moments where you go a little out of body? Like you’re narrating your own life? Like your eyes turn into strangers and you’re seeing something for the first time? It hasn’t happened to me in a while. I’ve been bogged down, busy, going from thing to thing and have had … Continue reading

Into the North Woods

Into the North Woods

This morning I woke up early. Harlem was already alive outside so I decided to get out there. So I went for a walk. Next thing I knew, I was 25 blocks south and in Central Park. I found myself in the North Woods, an area I’d never been before. With awesome harmonies in my … Continue reading

I’m Back.

I’m Back.

Hey friends. I missed you. Can I get minorly deep for a second? When we last saw each other, I wasn’t in the best spot. I was overwhelmed, unhappy, and just not feeling like myself. And then I disconnected- I went to Spain, I learned to like myself again, and life got a lot better. … Continue reading

Still Disconnecting…

Still Disconnecting…

So I’ve made it back from Europe. Well, almost, I’m currently in the Dublin airport with a FAR too long layover. It was an amazing amazing trip and one that I very much needed. And truthfully, it felt wonderful to disconnect. So wonderful in fact that I’d like to keep it going a bit longer, … Continue reading

672 Down

672 Down

Today marks my 1-year anniversary at Columbia. Tomorrow is my last day at Columbia. Very bittersweet and surreal indeed! What a year it has been! Within my year and by tomorrow afternoon, I will have completed 672 events. Insanity. Is this all happening? It still hasn’t hit me. I just get nauseous occasionally. I’ve got … Continue reading

On To The Next Adventure…

On To The Next Adventure…

New York is not about staying stagnant. New York is about chasing dreams. This sounds incredibly cliche and lame. But since moving to New York, it has been my dream to work here: Lincoln Center. The mecca for performance. A celebration of the arts in the middle of the city. Every time I walked onto … Continue reading

Lessons on Being Assaulted

Apologies for the jarring title but last night I got minorly assaulted. Minorly being the key word. But I learned some things from my first-hand experience that seem to be pretty straight forward tips for the cruddy situation. I was transferring trains around 9PM in Times Square. When going though the tunnel I noticed the … Continue reading

SO HOT… a poem.

SO HOT… a poem.

As I was sweating this morning in the shower, I realized that I was having a similar frustration with New York as I did this winter, except opposite with the temperature scale. Due to the fact that it is too hot to type full thoughts without sweating all over the keyboard, I’ve decided to write … Continue reading

Beach Therapy

Beach Therapy

Sitting in the airport, waiting for my flight back to New York, I can’t help but think how amazingly successful this beach trip was. I mean- it was AMAZINGLY successful. So successful in fact that even the airport has been ideal, giving me a $400 flight voucher to take a later flight and free wifi … Continue reading
