Living in NYC

Living in NYC

At the start of 2016 I moved to New York City. Why? I’m not entirely sure… I knew only that I wanted to try it, and now seemed a good a time as any. I had no steady job, no boyfriend, no house payment keeping me in one place (Adulthood seems to be dodging me like […]

Where to Dance: New York Edition #1

Where to Dance: New York Edition #1

In NYC, for every deli there’s a dance studio…Okay, that’s an exaggeration. But not by much. There’s approximately a million places to dance yourself silly in New York City.

My Favorite Un-Travel Bloggers

My Favorite Un-Travel Bloggers

Traveling the world isn’t always glamorous, and I’m sick of map flatlays and coffee closeups that make you feel otherwise. (disclaimer: I also kind of love map flatlays…because maps) Here is my round up of travel bloggers who don’t give a f*** about fantasizing the “I’m traveling and writing about it!” thing. Their Instagrams are not color-coordinated, […]

Why I’m Bummed Out With Travel Blogging

Why I’m Bummed Out With Travel Blogging

Way back in 2012 I started this here travel blog. It was an embarrassing attempt at documenting my “wild and crazy” adventures of my twenties (spoiler: not that wild and crazy). I wrote loquacious blog posts in an attempt to be a young Jack Keroac (cringe! but I was a freshly graduated English major so […]
