Sunday Girl: October 23, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz Friday came to a close as I sat down to eat a stale piece of leftover pizza after making my apartment look like Monica Geller had come to visit. As I chewed on the pizza, I perused an article about the shelf life of pizza in a refrigerator, on BuzzFeed. Halfway throughContinue reading “Sunday Girl: October 23, 2016”

Pre-Finals Week Wednesday

1] When New Yorkers walked outside today: 2] BOSS INSPIRATION (to get me through finals, along with prayer and kale): Amal Clooney 3] Fifth Harmony dropped two music videos recently. One is a cover of one of the greatest Christmas songs (ever), the other is the long-awaited “Sledgehammer.” I sing Camila’s part at the topContinue reading “Pre-Finals Week Wednesday”

Friday Glee: November 14, 2014

By: Gabriela Yareliz Baby, it’s cold outside! Full-blown winter out here.  And for some reason, the light rain and four-degree wind chill (I exaggerate…) with the twinkling lights makes us feel that life is like a Christmas jewelry commercial (with background music and all). New York City just has that vibe. It doesn’t always have that vibe. OnlyContinue reading “Friday Glee: November 14, 2014”

Epiphanies (with a tissue in hand)

By: Gabriela Yareliz The internet is about to be down for a couple of hours. (Shall we resume the discussion on first-world problems?) Today, I realized: 1) Being sick always brings me epiphanies. Is it the delirious feeling, the loss of fluids or the medication? 2) The key is finding contentment even when you are exhausted beyondContinue reading “Epiphanies (with a tissue in hand)”

Baby, it’s cold outside…

By: Gabriela Yareliz Oooh baby; it’s cold outside. Like, so cold it should be illegal (exaggeration due to initial shock). I have no idea how the temperature dropped so many degrees in a day. So much, that the building turned on the heater. Miracle. Last year, management waited until November. Bundle up! The man byContinue reading “Baby, it’s cold outside…”

Cold day

By: Gabriela Yareliz Okay, so don’t quit your day job, but do buy a ticket, get a tan and fall in love. Today, the weather channel said it felt like 8F degrees. Personally… I don’t know what it felt like. Dante’s inferno with ice? Just kidding. In my mind, the perfect world has the colorContinue reading “Cold day”

Empty Campus; cold morning

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello! It is freezing outside. Yes, the cold front reached us in Florida. Horrible. This time I was prepared. I am wearing a black long sleeve boatneck, a purple scarf tied around the waist. A black corduroy blazer, and a navy corduroy coat from Gap with black fuzzy gloves that leave theirContinue reading “Empty Campus; cold morning”

Fred, darling…

By: Gabriela Yareliz I saw this picture on (my favorite wedding blog), and it made me smile. Cat and Holly. My blog, this collection of random thoughts that unravel out like a yarn ball out of control… Breakfast at Tiffany’s for me will forever be this strange meeting of shallowness meets depth of thought.Continue reading “Fred, darling…”
