I believe in you

I’ve been thinking of you recently, and I wanted you to know that I believe in you. I know we may not agree all the time on whether people are inherently good (like Locke said), or whether people are evil in their hearts (like Hobbes argued) but that does not change this one simple thing, [...]

Goodbye My Friend

I knew the day I would have to write this letter would come one day, but now that it is here, it’s harder than I ever imagined it would be. Part of it is the actually saying goodbye to you part. The actual saying goodbye to seeing you every day, to watching Gossip Girl and [...]

My best #7

When I was a ballerina, I always imagined I was a #7. Like if there were 20 dancers in my class, I was only 7th best. Even though I was praised by my teachers and ballet mistress for working the hardest out of all of my peers, even though I worked out in between rehearsals [...]

Be careful of my heart

I told him, "I love you." He squeezed my hand. And it hurt. "It takes me a long time," he said, more to the ceiling than me. I knew he wasn't going to say it back. That's the part when I usually run.

To My Ex Boyfriend

and to all of you reading this who are not my ex boyfriend, I wanted to clear the air and get something straight with you. It occurred to me recently that I’ve done some ex bashing here. I’ve shared a lot of things that aren’t shared except in trusted, intimate conversations between girlfriends, usually over [...]

1 Year in NYC

Today I celebrate living in NYC for exactly 1 year. Anniversaries in NYC are kind of a big deal because so many people come and go, staying on couches, running up bar tabs and then they disappear back to where they came from. You start to get respect the longer you stay in NYC. Before [...]

My Type A personality

“And quite frankly, your Type A personality pisses me off,” the soccer mom growled at me this am as I slipped into security at Dulles-Washington airport on my way to Atlanta. What did I do to elicit the bitter soccer mom, sucker punch before my first cup of coffee? I’m a good traveler, scratch that, [...]

Moving to NY!

Last summer, during a super awesome awareness weekend workshop (The Power of Awareness) I made an agreement with myself. That I wasn’t ready to move to NY. That if I did move to NY, it would only be to prove that I can get a job at a magazine. That I didn’t need NY to [...]

You’ve Lost Your Muchiness

When my high school sweetheart-turned-hoped-for-fiance broke my heart a few years ago, I resolved that I had been given a second chance at a big life. The life he had offered promised to teach me contentment, comfort and satisfaction with a complacent existence full of simple little wonders. But when I got the chance to [...]

Hey little girl

I saw a little girl and an old woman get in a fight on the subway yesterday. Not a fist fight, thankfully, but a knock-down, drag-out verbal altercation. I was on my way home from work at the Union Square subway station – a busy, crowded stop where it feels more like a stampede of [...]

Why I hate Facebook

I deactivated my Facebook account. I know. Social media suicide. There was a time when I could not imagine what I would do if I lost everything on Facebook. All of my friendly banter back and forth between my camp girls, the amazing Kanye videos friends posted to my Wall, my Bookshelf, the awesome quotes [...]

Irene

Hi all! As I am not on Facebook anymore, I just wanted to let you know I survived Hurricane (what became Tropical Storm) Irene safe and well. I am pretty lucky. I live in the middle of Manhattan, on a high level street, in an apartment squashed between 4 other apartment buildings, surrounded by several [...]

I’m a Runaway

I’ve tried writing book reviews, product reviews and music reviews on MVIS in the past, and it’s never been super successful. It’s probably because you come to this blog because I write what I think, I spill my guts and don’t apologize for it (most of the time) and because I make you think. Most [...]

That is not my story {Part I}

My dad says the best invention ever made was the human brain’s Forgeterator. “You see,” my dad would say, “the forgetorator is supposed to make you forget your stories – the ones that have shaped you, for better or worse; the ones that make you think sad things and make you afraid to live.” I [...]
