A Big Bite Out of the Apple

It’s always amazing to me that when I feel as though things are looking great and wonderful, I’ll need to keep an eye out for catastrophe which I always feel is waiting right around the corner. It’s as if life has a way of saying: “Yes, enjoy it now because at any moment Fate might […] more…

A Tall Bourbon, Please. Neat.

I had quite the adventure yesterday, but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I met up with Mr. Tall (the guy I had met online at the Upright Citizens Brigade last week) at the Sofia Wine Bar on 50th and 2nd ave. It was a small, dimly lit place, lit by the candles […] more…

Falling in to line

It’s the “fall into autumn” time of year: a time when one looks at the leaves for golden lining, and the sun begins to grow your shadow to longer, bigger lengths, exaggerating your height so you look ten feet tall. The air is humid, but one gets the feeling that that heavy moisture is only […] more…

Cafe Cliche

Sunday was a picture perfect day of September. If aliens were to land here in February and somehow asked me what a day in September should look like, I would tell them to look at that Sunday (in my brain) and then they would know. The sky was a crisp bright blue, the sun was […] more…

I did a girly wiggle this afternoon. I stumbled upon a new notion the last 24 hours. The Idea is this: What if I took improv classes in a foreign city? Seems simple, yes. But I feel as exuberant about the idea as the first European explorers must have felt when they realized Native Americans […] more…

It’s a W-Rap.

(A Man and a Woman are sitting in a cafe. It is an intimate moment, a moment in which something extraordinary will occur… Will it be a popping of the “Big Question”? will the “L” word work its way to the front? Is a baby announcement in order? We can’t be sure, but there is […] more…

Just Shy of a Quarter Century

I’m turning 24 in two weeks. As the big date slowly inches forward to make me another year older I find myself reflecting on my place in life more and more. I am not the only one, it seems. The early twenties is seeming more and more like a universal time for young adults to […] more…

Yes, put that on hold please.

I “froze” my account on OKCupid today. Yep. After 177 messages raining down on me and about a dozen dates, I decided yesterday that I would retire myself from this online dating storm. Granted, the OKCupid website was no end of entertainment if one looked at the whole thing through a comical lens. I’ve been […] more…

Boyfriend Interviews

I feel like I’ve now come to a new phase in the search for I-Don’t-Know-What from the online dating world. My inbox is getting swelled every day by more and more messages, some more choice that others. (Hi Ms. Candy, How’s it going?) Yesterday I was supposed to go on another double-decker date day. I […] more…

Shopping Around

It seems everyone has their own opinions and metaphors on Love and finding “The One” I guess I would lump myself into the category of “exploratory and positive” yet, somehow I can’t shake this feeling that what I mean by “exploratory” is: I am Shopping for a guy that will fit. I emphasize Shopping because […] more…

The Double-Decker

A few days ago, after my first OKCupid date with Josh (the Urban Farming Developer) who had been a real neat dude, I was feeling hopeful. I strolled into work after my walk on the Highline and greeted my fellow employees with a crisp new smile and a pop under my heels. There was a […] more…

Romps through a recycled Highline

Yesterday I went on my fourth blind date. I’ll preface this with a couple of reasons as to why I am going on blind dates: I decided that since the ex was getting married this month, and I’ve been single now for a year and a half, I should get myself “out there” and meet […] more…
