The Commute from Hell

I left my apartment, smiling at the blue sky and the man who held the door for me. Today was looking up. Things started going downhill once I got to the Sterling St. Manhattan-bound 2,5 platform. “Due to a broken rail the 2 will be running on the express tracks between Franklin Ave. and Atlantic … Continue reading

Words of wisdom from my sister

Life is throwing up from hunger, spilling your pretzels all over your lap, missing .67 on a multiple choice exam, and sitting at home on a Friday night with a missing toenail, no toilet paper, and all your light bulbs burnt out.   But it’s okay, because sometimes you get a free cupcake.

On Soul Mates

“A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful.
