Is The Grass Really Greener On The Other Side Of Brooklyn?

Is the grass really greener on the other side of Brooklyn? Living in Bushwick Brooklyn has had it's ups and downs, but was the move worth it?

As we looked for a place to park our behemoth of a U-Haul truck, we were greeted by an older man in a faded baseball cap. He waved us over, letting us know we could park in the empty spot right near where we needed to be. Though technically, the area he guided us to was a no-parking zone.  A heavily graffitied garage door was bolted shut on one side, the other was open to reveal a well-worn auto shop…

One Year In New York City & Why I Decided To Move Back Home

One Year In New York City & Why I Decided I'm Moving Back Home

June 13th marked my one year anniversary in the city and spent it by laying on my floor mattress, loft recently disassembled. The air in our apartment was stifling; the breeze outside nonexistent. I never reinstalled my air conditioning this spring as it was an unusually cool few months for once. Plus, the thought of trying to haul that thing and cut another custom piece of plywood to ensure it sat in the window correctly was not appealing in the…

Aren’t You Afraid? Attending The Women’s March on NYC

Stunning Photos of the Women's March on NYC

“Aren’t you afraid?” Twice, I have attended rallies in New York City. Twice, I have been asked the same exact question. Have I ever felt afraid for my safety? Isn’t it scary to be engulfed in a crowd? Considering I do it every day around rush hour, when I stuff my body onto the already packed F train, I’d say no. This weekend, I attended the Women’s March on NYC, and not once did I feel afraid.…

2016 Was My Worst Year Ever: Goals for 2017

Setting Goals for 2017

Seeing as I took last week off to properly celebrate and take part in the holidays, I figured I’d start whilst on the plane to Mexico, trying to ignore the fairy sounds from the little girl’s iPad in front of me. The mom was good for the first few hours, constantly hushing her two noisy children, but she’s since fallen asleep and they’re letting loose. But I digress. Every time I look back at 2016, my feelings are mixed. Right off…

An Updated Love Letter To Living In Brooklyn

Living In Brooklyn: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Recently,  I talked about writing my own love letter and stuffing it in the overflowing letter box that sits tucked away in one of my favorite cafes in Connecticut. Written prior to living in Brooklyn, this letter was when I wasn’t sure if the apartment I threw most of my savings at was going to be mine. Was it all going to be one huge mistake? Still, I was finally chasing after one of my oldest dreams of living in the city. Though nervous…

Is This The Easiest Morning Life Hack Ever?

Simple Life Hack To Get Your Morning Started Faster

Oftentimes, we fly by the seat of our pants through life. Rushing to work. Scrambling to make your hair resemble something normal. Hurrying to make dinner after work for 7 pm (5 pm if you’re eating at my parent’s house..) All of that converts to some pretty heavy feelings towards everything and anything that gets in our way. Aggravation because the highway is more backed up than usual. Crankiness due to our shows on Netflix not loading because of the damn internet taking too long,…

This Time I Promised Myself I Wouldn’t Cry

This Time I Promised Myself I Wouldn’t Cry - Jetplane Jean

“You know, I could see you living here one day.” I glance over at my friend who’s got his eyes trained towards the blue sea as we cruise along the snaking highway, soaking in the surrounding beauty that is the island of Maui. Ever since we have arrived, there has been a sort of peace overwhelming all of my senses and I know he feels it too. The laid-back lifestyle, the perfect weather, even the mannerisms of the locals I…
