ME vs ME

Sometimes it feels like it’s me against the world, but a very wise person recently reminded me that even in my darkest hours I have one thing that remains constant and unwavering; me. She explained how my inner strength and ability to move past obstacles is continually motivation to her. Now, I don’t know about all … Continue reading

Beep beep boop…

WARNING: Abstract thought-train ahead… While I impatiently waited the 30 seconds for the “beep, beep, boop…” version of a “Loading…” message to lead me to my new post page, my brain decided to go off on a little tangent. Although, I suppose it isn’t so far off base, being a reflection on my impatience. Ever … Continue reading

The right choice

So, I admit there are often days I rethink this whole move back to the NYC area. It hasn’t been the easiest, I left a lot behind, and I miss a lot of awesome people. Work is, well work. But when days get rough I try to remember that with a short walk all of … Continue reading

Making it here means you leave all fear and inhibitions behind. You have to … Continue reading

The Man at the Train Station

The other day after work I was waiting for my older brother to meet me at Penn Station so we could ride the train home together. Of course I stood around in front of the LIRR station board for a good 30 minutes just waiting. I took a picture for a complete stranger who doesn’t … Continue reading
