for the love

Do you ever look in the mirror and think about all of your imperfections? Or stop short of eating those cookies at the office because you know exactly where on your body they’ll sit after you eat them? A few months ago I was having some thoughts. You know, the ones where you re-realize you’ll never … More for the love

don’t be a turkey

I’m going to start this by proclaiming something: I like all holidays. There, I said it. I don’t have a favorite and I don’t hate any of them. I’m not sure why, they just all seem exciting in their own way. Costumes and sugar rushes on Halloween, having Lucky Charms with green milk on St. Patrick’s Day, overeating mashed potatoes … More don’t be a turkey

Fast forward to today, and we’ve now watched cartoons like … More movie flashbacks

new york mind

Sometimes I’m still weirdly giddy that I live here.

Not just … More new york mind
