friends are good

February 12, 2011

Coinciding with a recent discontinuation of intimacy, i’ve been embracing and uncovering the need for close friends. A great convo the last week w/ my good, good friend @StephSwinton (kickass birthday gathering!), nudged me through the blogging door for this post. During our exchange, i remarked to her my realization that friends aren’t a bad thing.… Read more of: friends are good

day 009 – inspirational paragon

January 21, 2011

Continuing the usage of my neologism “inspirational paragon,” this is a photo of my boy, Pino’s, current blog, where he is standing next to a larger than life, yet it’s aptly sized given life accomplishments, head sculpture of “arguably the greatest President this country has ever seen,” Abraham Lincoln. This picture was perfect since Pino… Read more of: day 009 – inspirational paragon

day 007 – Bohemian Fashion

January 18, 2011

So, yesterday while on a quest for some new boots, which i didn’t ultimately buy, i bought a sweater and blazer for $20! (I’m a very frugal shopper, only buying on sale or thrift stores!) I didn’t feel like trying on the blazer or sweater since i was strapped for time. Maybe i should have.… Read more of: day 007 – Bohemian Fashion

the Proust questionnaire

January 16, 2011

Thursday, while still awake at 3am with my sleep routine out of wack from the mid-week snow day, and excited from finishing the design for version 3.0 of Mental Ephemera, i came across an interesting post at Apricot Tea, the proust questionnaire in my words. I’d never heard of Proust, but i’ve an affinity for… Read more of: the Proust questionnaire

day 004 – Black Athletes in America

January 14, 2011

This won’t be an exhaustive post because i couldn’t watch all of the show, and i don’t want to take up my significant other time blogging. Lol. But, here it goes. I serendipitiously found a spot in Penn Station earlier today that miraculously was showing the ESPN special covering Black Athletes in America (probably not… Read more of: day 004 – Black Athletes in America

day 002 -above average pain tolerance

January 12, 2011

For whatever reason(s), i’ve had a nagging headache throughout the day; hence, my immaculate photo of my 500mg Duane Reade brand “Pain Relief.” These caplets have been instrumental to keeping me sane over the past year (maybe longer) when headaches pop out of thin air. Today’s headaches were probably caused by stress, most likely from… Read more of: day 002 -above average pain tolerance

my life in 365 days

January 10, 2011

Directly inspired by Ev’Yan and her “my life in 365 days” post, i’ve decided i want to try taking a photo … every day … for a year. It’s tempting to think it’s easy, but as a person who’s attempted (and “completed”) several poetry 30-in-30s (at least one poem every day for 30 consecutive days),… Read more of: my life in 365 days

my 2011 (gasp!) resolutions

January 3, 2011

In an attempt to be more accountable (public acknowledgment is a wondrous form of keeping me in check), i crafted a list of goals (of resolutions) for 2011. This litany was much more difficult to construct than i thought. Deciding what i was comfortable sharing and goals i truly want to reach was interesting. So… Read more of: my 2011 (gasp!) resolutions
