In my room I have a New York plaque hanging above my desk. I have it set high up so that whenever I feel discouraged and hopeless, all I have to do is look up at the reminder of my dreams, my goals, and where I want to be. …

It's finally Friday and I'm so excited! This week has been incredibly busy with school work and things I had to get done. I have one more assignment before the winter break. I can't wait. Words can't express how excited I am to do nothing. Not that I ever end up doing nothing but I can't wait to do whatever I please.
This weekend, I have a checklist of things to do like figuring out the holiday plans and doing school work, you know, the typical get-it-done-on-a-weekend checklist,…

On a recent venture into my beloved city from the out of town digs I’ve been exiled to, I found myself in one of those über fancy Madison Avenue banks where men still wear suits to work and women are kicking at the glass ceiling with all their might. Being that I was there for something decidedly non-business related and planned to wander around my favorite spots for the rest of the day, I wasn’t exactly dressed to the nines. No sexy pencil skirt, no sky-high heels, and only the barest hint…Continue

"You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away."
Sometimes it takes an outsider to give you perspective on a situational problem. Sometimes, that person is you.
In the middle of the trip, somewhere between walking in Central Park and laughing over drinks, I realized that NYC will always be my dream. I will always feel at home there. I will always feel an undeniable pull back to the city lights. I will eventually and…Continue

I'm gonna try to enjoy it fully, but I'm gonna be honest: I AM EXHAUSTED!

Monday: Manhattan exploration from the Barnes and Noble in Union Square all the way into Central Park and out again. I don't find a single sight I don't love. I see the Empire State Building which is actually not an atrocious skyscraper as I have been led to believe. There's art deco design on there you never see in movies. Lying bastards.

Today I'm gonna sit on a train for hours on end. I'm gonna go to New York City.
I gonna go on some hopeful interviews and I'm gonna do a couple of photo shoots. I'm gonna explore the city, see new and old friends, and try to really achieve success doing this whole grown-up thing.
Even if the city rejects me and asks me never to return, I'm gonna make it somewhere. There's just no other option.
I'll try to keep the daily…

They walk around teetering on stilts. Faces painted with a layer of elaborate make up. Their garb dazzling with sequins, metallic, or jewels that will twinkle under the bright lights. Those who are furry, fur is in this season, look ready to jump through hoops. A car pulls up and an awkwardly proportioned, wacky dressed gaggle piles out.
When the Big Apple Circus comes to town, it sets up camp a mere two blocks from my apartment. Walking home past the big top, some nights I would…

The pests of New York City are notorious. Sewer rats, pigeons (“flying rats”), squirrels (“rats with cuter outfits”), bed bugs, cockroaches, and the guys who sell comedy tickets in Times Square.
Like bed bugs in a street curb sofa, they infest the area, preying on all those they come in contact with. A walk on Broadway from 42nd to 50th guarantees multiple accostings: “Do you like stand up comedy?” “Want to part of a taping of a live show?” “What are you doing tonight?” At best they…Continue

I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now
I have belted out this line from Queen’s amazing song, “I Want it All” more times than I can count. Hairbrush microphone in hand, I’ve rocked out like Freddy Mercury, feeling like I was on top of the world. But if you think about it, that line represents the way a lot of us live our lives, especially those of us in this city that I…Continue

I always hate when people refer to it as ‘The Hamptons’ but like it or not, this place that I’ve grown up going to is known simply as that. My mom was raised in East Hampton, so our family would get in the car
every summer, drive east and spend upwards of three to four weeks with
family on eastern Long Island. I always considered myself more of the
“townie” population than the riche…

You see your phone lighting up. You hear the beep. Your ringtone is going on and on and on… You pick it up, read the text, and have to slam on your brakes because you just looked up from your phone and it’s a red light. You almost just crashed into the car in front of you. Your heart is racing, you start sweating and you think ‘Phew! That was a close call.’
