About Me

New York, New York
I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Dear Santa

Santa was good to me this year. I got some key items off my list.
I don't know why anyone's surprised, I'm ALWAYS nice.

Room of the Day

Between school and work I've been trekking towards what (as of right now) seem like unattainable goals.  In fact, last night I fell asleep on my desk with white strips in while studying. That was a first, and let's just say, there was drool involved.  I'm hoping that was a low point in my life.  Either way, I've found myself loosing my steam and loosing sight of my big dreams, but upon seeing this one single image, I've gotten my groove back. 

In my own little world, I'll know I've made it when I'm living in a brownstone in the West Village with floor to ceiling steel windows looking out into my little back yard (complete with string lights and a fire pit). 

Needless to say, this image is now the background of my computer. 
I DIE for good windows. Good STEEL windows.
