I Give My Heart to San Francisco #InternationalWomensDay

Yesterday was an important day for every woman on Earth. 👸 I find it so great that I had booked my flight for this date, when I had forgotten it is International Women’s Day until a few days ago.

It looks like I had been preparing ...

Farewell 2016, Farewell New York University

I am a little bit early, but I am ready to say goodbye to 2016 and my time at New York University! As of this Monday at 3AM, I officially submitted my final thesis, which makes me a Master of Science in Digital Media!

What Would Have Been the Grams II

Half a year ago, I archived some photos I had taken over a long time into a Intagram dedication post because I don’t use my account. 🙁 I wanted to start using it again at t ...

I am not uncomfortable around men! :)

I stand up and say I am not uncomfortable around men.

🙂

This past summer through professional help and reading the book Boundaries, I learned that I had a long relationship so toxic the guy had be ...

Sweet Twenty-Four

I turned 24 last week! I’ve been celebrating all week with an overdose of sweets and sugar because one of my best friends flew in from Australia to celebrate our one-day-apart birthdays! It’s her first time visiting New York so we spen ...

How My Silence Led to My Sexual Assault

As you can tell by the title, this is a very heavy topic. I also grew up in an environment where sharing something like this is deeply shameful, so this is definitely not easy for me to write. But we live in a culture where women are assaulted the ...

What Would Have Been the Grams

Instagram recently updated their app icon and interface. While I am very active for the trend of moving from skeuomorphism to flat design, I think Instagram could have at least tried to maintain its brand during this transformation rather than bec ...

#OneLinerTestimony

I had been consistent with blogging once a week, but after Easter, exhaustion overtook me because I used up so much of my energy on a very special project I was working on for two months!

Earlier this year I wrote about how I want to dedic ...

Meeting My Online Friendies!

2015 was the year I finally got to meet the friends I’ve made online, and oh my, it makes me feel like an adult! After my trip to St.Louis last Christmas, I felt more like an adult because I had met a lot of people quickly and kept in contac ...

A Day in the Life: January 2016

I really like Georgie’s new format for A Day in the Life in 2016, here goes! It’s been three months since I did one so this should be fun! I wrote this post on Saturday, Ja ...

A Post Dedicated to my Phones

I’ve never once written about my phone on my blog in a day and age when most of us are glued to our phones. So here’s a post about my phones in detail!

My first phone was at the age of 13 when I moved to New York. I never had t ...

Operation Christmas Child

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays because of the amount of warmth in terms of both family and calories. I especially like how this holiday is rooted religiously but has become secular and accepte ...

A Day in the Life: October 2015

Hi! This is my first time participating in one of these linkups! Georgie said the preferred day of October 12th is best but that was yesterday and I was working which is not very intere ...

The end of a beautiful summer.

I had the best birthday month I can remember, and I want to remember it here right now. The last time I didn’t blog (for an entire spring) I spent my summer trying to catch up, which ultimately didn’t turn out as I expected because I w ...

Please support me for Extra Life!

This Saturday, August 8th, I am hosting an Extra Life 2015 event. Extra Life is an annual gaming and charity event where gamers play for 24 hours in order to raise money for hospitalized children. No child deserves the loneliness of a hospital roo ...

Gradlife didn’t consume me!

For a while I couldn’t figure out how to start this post. If I were to fill you guys in on the last four months of my life, I’d be able to publish a thesis. Two weeks ago marks the day I completed the first, and probably easiest, semes ...

Adulthood, phase two.

When we’re children, everything seems like a huge deal despite what our parents tell us, and then we reach an age when we don’t take trivial things so seriously anymore. In my later teen years I went through a phase when I liked saying ...

Happy Productivity

I am giving in to making a list of goals for the year, so here goes!

Organize my blog better as a designer as well as a developer. I had already converted my playlist to custom ...

Happy Quiet Holidays

I’m a little bit late as well as early, but Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

My holidays are usually not very different from the everyday, except I catch up with a few friends I don’t often see and watch a little more TV than ...

Being Thankful

It’s that day of the year when we write about what we are thankful for! I can make a traditional list, but I will take this entry to explain why it’s important to even be thankful for things that don’t turn out to be something th ...
