Within the last month, I’ve acquired a new apartment and new job. ‘Why not also get a new boyfriend,’ I thought. So, after a long hiatus, I started dating again. “#DatingAround,” as I call it. I’ve never dated around before.... read more


I start the new job on Monday and, thankfully, my new office will be at Union Square — just a straight shot on the Q or the 5, both very near my apartment in Brooklyn. Until then, I’ve been suffering the nonsensical commute of a taking the Q or 5 into... read more


I’ve been living in Crown Heights for almost two weeks and here’s what I’ve observed thus far: There is an over abundance of churches on my block. Their church bells all ring at random times: 25 after, 18 til, and sometimes, if you’re lucky, on... read more


Oh, Miss New York. Sometimes, I hate you. The stench of urine on the hot-as-balls subway platform. The throngs of pedestrians who don’t walk on the right. The bad dates with good guys. The cost of a gallon of milk. The sleepless nights, and early mornings. The... read more

The older I get, the more settled I’d like to become but it seems the older I get, the faster things change. Everything is in constant flux. Madonna once sang that if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans. I thought the summer of 2014 was full of... read more
