Studio Update 18

By: Gabriela Yareliz I woke up from another nightmare. This time, someone had cut my hair while I was asleep. When I woke up, my hand went straight to my freshly blow dried hair, pinned up with a Drybar alligator clip. When I felt the whole Rapunzel there, I let out a huge sigh ofContinue reading “Studio Update 18”

Studio Update 15

By: Gabriela Yareliz I woke up in such a funk. First, I barely slept. I was exhausted, but my mind was racing and racing. I turned on the rain scene from the Calm app, and somehow and at some point, I drifted off to sleep. Torrential rains washed away the anxieties of the day. IContinue reading “Studio Update 15”

Studio Update 13

By: Gabriela Yareliz I saw this image this morning, and this is how I felt walking out (more like running out) of the grocery store with my eggs, the other day. I was so tired yesterday, guys, that I woke up tired. Two days ago, I saw myself in a video moving my hands likeContinue reading “Studio Update 13”

Studio Update 11

By: Gabriela Yareliz First, I wanted to say I got the eggs. Yep. I was crazy enough to get the dang eggs, garlic, oat milk (ugh, I know, I am one of those people), and some cookie mix because Lord knows I am sick of seeing everyone baking on Instagram. (I never bake. It’s oneContinue reading “Studio Update 11”

Studio Update 10

By: Gabriela Yareliz Update from yesterday: so, the neighbor made a cute wooden fence during yesterday’s Zoom calls. He didn’t sign it to me through the window; I just got nosy and investigated with my invisible binoculars. (Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do to stay informed. You have totally done it,Continue reading “Studio Update 10”

Studio Update 9

By: Gabriela Yareliz I put on perfume, today. I did the dab-dab on the pulse points after my oatmeal breakfast. Yep. I was ready for Friday. I put on some eyeliner, and smiled into the mirror like I was going somewhere. (You know the smile. The one where you tilt the head slightly and purseContinue reading “Studio Update 9”

Studio Update 8

By: Gabriela Yareliz Do I choose eggs or life? I started off the morning debating whether it was worth risking my livelihood to get eggs at a NYC grocery store. It’s not. You see, I am a vegetarian, and I avoid dairy, but I do eat eggs on occasion. Not often. But sometimes. There areContinue reading “Studio Update 8”

Studio Update 7

By: Gabriela Yareliz Greetings from the studio. I did venture out today, to the basement, to take down my recycling. Yes, crisis is no reason to stop recycling. I was met by an old woman huddled in the corner of the elevator. (There are no stairs to the basement). She was clutching a scarf toContinue reading “Studio Update 7”

Studio Update 6

By: Gabriela Yareliz I have been following the situation in Italy pretty closely. I watch little Italian news clips, and I watch some of my favorite quarantined Italian celebrities’ videos, thanks to Instagram stories and the live feature. Today, while I was listening to a video, I realized that I understood every word in Italian.Continue reading “Studio Update 6”

Studio Update 5

By: Gabriela Yareliz I accidentally said Kenny Chesney died. Nope, it was Kenny Rogers. I always do that. I always accidentally kill the wrong person in my head. I once said Larry King was dead. I seriously believed it. Nope, he is still getting married and getting divorced (has he not heard of dating?). Sigh.Continue reading “Studio Update 5”
