This Month’s Picks: October 2014

By: Gabriela Yareliz That’s it. October is out with a bang! And November is being swept in by a cold gust of wind (and not the weird Pharrell ‘you-remind-me-of-the-air’-“Gust of wind” song). Here is my compilation of fun things I found throughout the month, as usual. There are a few of my favorite things sprinkled below:Continue reading “This Month’s Picks: October 2014”

TKOs and Success

By: Gabriela Yareliz I saw this video, and I had to share. I was super inspired by it. I love the fact that boxing is a huge theme in the video. Boxing is analogous to life; there is struggle; there is pain; there is discipline; there are choices, and there is potential victory. So, if you are down for motivation and fantasticContinue reading “TKOs and Success”

Le Persone Belle

“Le persone belle sono rare, non si distinguono dal viso ma dall’anima.” “Beautiful people are rare, [they are] not known by face but by the soul.” “Un giorno realizzerai che c’e una ragione per ogni persona che hai incontrato. Qualcuno ti mettera alla prova, qualcun altro ti usera e qualcun altro ti insegnera qualcosa eContinue reading “Le Persone Belle”

October Mobile Scrapbook

Here are some random and shameless mobile device snapshots and selfies from this busy, busy month. Here is some music to serve as soundtrack 😉 /And I’m doing just fine I’m always landing on my feet In the nick of time And by the skin of my teeth; I ain’t gonna stress ‘Cause the worstContinue reading “October Mobile Scrapbook”

Proctors & Wallpaper

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today was the dreaded corporate accounting exam in various law schools in the city, apparently. It is hilarious when you go into an exam nervous, because the proctors usually make the nerves evaporate in the 15 minutes of prep time prior to the exam. The proctors are hilarious– unintentionally, of course. There is alwaysContinue reading “Proctors & Wallpaper”

Monday Inspiration: October 27, 2014

[Look at the week with the confidence of Inspector Clouseau.] By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello, hello! Last week of October. We’ve survived. We made it. It’s been a sniffley, sleep-deprived, couple of weeks. I just finished a project on international law and torture. I was confirming the spelling of a terrorist group, and I felt nervous whileContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: October 27, 2014”

Hopeless Wanderer: STH/ST/SEAPRT/NYC, Cider Feast Edition

By: Gabriela Yareliz I decided that not another day could go by with me not visiting one of my favorite places in the city–South Street Seaport District. I love the crisp, windiness by the sea and the boats. So, I grabbed my camera (partner-in-crime) and wandered down to the Financial District. The day was perfect; notContinue reading “Hopeless Wanderer: STH/ST/SEAPRT/NYC, Cider Feast Edition”

Never Forget

“Faith is acting like it is so, even when it’s not so, in order that it might be so, just ’cause God said so. Because what faith says is: God you are telling the truth. Faith establishes what you think about God.” Tony Evans “God hears you and in His own timing, in His ownContinue reading “Never Forget”

Ben Bradlee: The Man Who Dared

The word often used to describe him is: LEGENDARY. He stood for honesty, accuracy, timeliness and boldness. No fear.
