The Long Game of Following Your Dreams

The Long Game of Following Your Dreams

Over the past year, I slowly laid down the dreams and timelines I once carried so tightly. I told you how I had carefully laid plans, and but how I was learning to let them go. As I made peace with the idea that I was not in control of certain areas of my life, I started to reconsider the things I did have some control over.

29 Lessons I Learned in My Twenties

Yesterday was my last day in my twenties. As strange as it seems to let go of this decade (already?!), I am looking forward to my thirties and what the future holds.

This summer marks my fourth year living in Hoboken. It is hard to believe I’ve been here over 1460 days already. This is the longest I have lived in one area since my high school days. I used to hate change, but after half of my life being filled with it, it has become harder to settle in somewhere and embrace a place as home. My tendency is to always look towards the horizon and wonder what is next. This year, people we love who have been here since the beginning of my time in Hoboken are beginning to move. ...

Five Things Friday: 5.23.14

Five things I’ve been loving lately… Something local Hoboken has a new coffee shop – Black Rail Coffee! I discovered this new spot while scrolling through #Hoboken tags on twitter and since I happened to pass by 800 Jackson street this week, I had to try their cold brewed coffee. Setting up shop right next to the 9th street light rail station seems an ingenious move to cater to commuters. Read More »
