Reasons Why New York is Better than San Francisco

Not that long ago, I wrote a post for this very website which chronicled my experience as a sun-kissed, burrito-fed Californian living for three years in NYC.  Soft of heart and fake blonder of hair, I bemoaned New York’s frigid winters, sleazy one-upping “networkers,” and lack of publicly-placed recycling bins….

How About We…Do Something Cheap?

A wise man once said, “Mo’ money, mo’ problems.” However, if you’re reading this, it may pain you slightly to not be in 100% agreement. Don’t sweat it. Snap out of that funk, little chipmunk! You can still live like a (semi) normal person, just use these handy alternatives to…

Last Day to Eat FREE Thai Curry at MoMA!

Quick Fixes When You’re Mopey in NYC

I love New York. I will never wear one of the t-shirts, but I post on this site multiple times a week to shout about the reasons why I think this city kicks ass. Despite my infatuation with it, it’s a tricky place to be when you’re in a mopey…

DIY: Make a Wish Tree

One of my favorite things about living in the Western Addition was spring time, when the cherry blossom trees would burst into flowers – not just because it’s a spectacular sight but also because someone in the neighborhood would decorate the trees with stuffed animals. Alligators laying across low-lying branches,…
