Giving In To The Rush

Let’s be real here: you’re a true New Yorker if you’re fluent in Rushing. Most of us go through our daily lives running around like anxiety-ridden, running-on-three-and-a-half-hours-of-sleep-and-two-cups-of-coffee mad men, all twenty minutes late to wherever we have to be.

Right Now

It’s Saturday night, and I’m writing from my mom’s kitchen while Caitlyn and Heinrich watch Rent in the living room. I’m watching them while Mom and Chris are at a freestyle concert with some friends of theirs.

Can’t Get You Out Of My Head

Alternatively known as Another Music Post From A Girl Who Listens To Music Like It’s Her Literal Conscience, this is basically an addition to past posts about songs that I just can’t seem to get out of my head. Because, you know what? I’ve listened to music for hours every single day of the last five years of my life, give or take a few years. I don’t know, I just can’t seem to not listen to it.

The Best Of Times…And The Worst

There are two things you need to know about me; one, I don’t drink very often, and two, if I’ve done something once and didn’t like the experience, I never try to do it again. So, clearly, there’s a story as to why I’m like that. And I’m going to tell you it.
