“The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and the beauty in the world.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald My soul is awaken whenever I make a trip back home to “the city”. I am very fortunate to be able to come back here as much as I do … Continue reading Hometown Glory
My life has typically revolved around an academic calendar. As another school year is coming to a close, I reflected on my educational journey that pretty much ended in 2102 unless you count the four semesters of Mandarin Chinese I took in community college recently. So I don’t really talk about my educational accomplishments mostly because I blocked it out of my memory. Talk about … Continue reading Thoughts on Education
I used to be a very pleasant to work with. I was friends with my colleagues, hung out with them outside of work, and took an interest in their personal lives.

So the fact that I pulled off a 300 page book in about three … Continue reading Love, Simon
I’m a co-parent (okay, let’s be real, I pretty much have sole custody) to a rescue chihuahua/terrier mix. Being that I don’t have any children, Ollie really is the closet living thing I’ll have to a child. Our relationship is very complex. I think because I’m somewhat of a tiger-mom that I’m usually left disappointed in a lot of Ollie’s actions. Case in point, we … Continue reading Ollie
I celebrated my 5th year anniversary with Nathan the other day. What’s the running joke? It’s like 50 years in straight years? It’s funny because I think this is the first time we celebrate an actual anniversary. I’m rarely in town during Memorial Day Weekend since it’s one of the longer weekends that I can make a trip back to New York for some family … Continue reading May 26, 2013
