Journal Entry 7 / November 13, 2019

We're getting a little glimpse of winter in New York City this week and I'm probably the only one not mad about it. Although my 3 mile run in Central Park yesterday was a little more uncomfortable than I was hoping it would be, and I definitely learned that I need to invest in some warmer running attire, I'm kind of giddy about the next few months. The Christmas season in New York is my...more

Journal Entry 5 / October 22, 2019

Every night for the last four days I've hit the pillow completely exhausted, which is why you haven't heard from me in a week. I wanted to feel bad about missing my posting schedule but then I remembered I'm only human and life happens and sometimes deadlines pass and that's okay. I just need to work on getting ahead of my posting schedule so busy weeks like this one don't get in the way of...more

But after I've been away from home, even if it's just for a few days, I can't describe how much I love laying my head...more

A co-worker once told me that my brain was like a crowded mall. This was back when I worked in an office and we were experiencing a slight lull in the workday and decided to have a little fun finding comparisons for what was going on in our minds most of the time. One co-worker's brain was compared to a peaceful meadow, mine was compared to a crowded mall. At another job years later, another...more

Journal Entry 1 / September 18, 2019

When I first started this blog over five years ago, I wanted it to be about travel but I also wanted a place to share my personal thoughts about life and just figuring out how to be happy. I immediately became terrified that nobody would find that type of thing interesting though and because of that, I have always been afraid to write a journal entry type of blog post. I convinced myself that my...more
