Simple fun is the best kind of fun. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to grab my heart-shaped sunglasses, some great snacks, and fun games, then persuade my friends to play in the park with me. I live very close to both Central and Morningside Parks, so I always feel guilty when I don’t visit either on a beautiful, sunny, summer afternoon. My favorite spot in Central Park is in Harlem, and it is […]
One day at work, I accidentally typed the number “13″ in my browser and in the results, I found out, “13 is a natural number after 12 and before 14. It is the smallest number with eight letters in its name spelled out in English.” I clicked on the Wikipedia link and kept on reading. “It is also a Fibonacci number, a happy number, and one of only 3 known Wilson primes.” You’re right. Why am I telling you this? […]
« Et Dieu créa la femme. » Un très beau film Français classique qui représente la beauté et sexualité de la femme. Je l’adore. J’ai demandé à mon ami, Alejandro de me prendre des photos ce samedi passé. Il avait son appareil photo et venait de shooter une actrice. J’avais les cheveux enveloppés dans un foulard et je portais un rouge à lèvre orange.
Figment is one of my all time favorite NYC events. The two-day event takes place on Governor’s island, and only happens once a year. This was my third time going, and the tradition is to go on the second day. I’ve always been lucky to go with people as energetic and imaginative as me. As expected, Figment did not disappoint! The idea is to enjoy the art and be part of it. I always feel like I’ve stepped into a […]
After seeing snippets of Mr. David McCullough Jr.’s commencement speech posted on numerous sites over the past few days, I decided to read it thoroughly a number of times. I agree with everything he said. The man spoke the truth without sugar-coating anything, and I applaud him for that. Although his speech was addressing an audience of privileged, middle class, high school students, it’s clear that his views about selflessness were for anyone (no matter the social class, age, etc.) who would […]
The weekend before last Tyler and I were invited to a prom themed party at a CrossFit gym in Brooklyn. The day of “prom”, we visited a number of thrift stores, but couldn’t find anything formal looking that would come close to fitting me. My budget for a prom dress was no more than $30. I found this store in Harlem that sold extremely cheap and cheesy formal dresses, and picked one from the “junior” section. I began to think […]
I took a long walk around the Cliff Walk with Tyler and his mom during my short stay in Newport. It’s one of those attractions that encourage me to travel within the US. There are so many beautiful things that are just so close I have not yet seen. I’m definitely inspired to explore more the east coast and eventually venture out west and other interesting places in between. The Cliff Walk is right between the ocean and […]
Sometimes, on a Friday night, all a girl needs to do, is hangout with a dear friend, have a glass or wine or three, and play dress-up. At least that’s how the night started. After we bumped up the music, hung out on the roof a bit, we decided to take the party elsewhere. My only rule was to stay close to home, and not go below 110th street. Sarita decided after a few drinks at a nearby lounge to […]
