Aqua-Bro

Mom and I went for a walk by the Bronx River recently. She wanted to see some of the local places I like to photograph, before I go, so I showed her a couple of places that are easy for her to get to without having to drive. While we were there, we met some […]

The Ole’ College Try

So, today I put in an application for a job overseas… After a lot of thinking, and a lot of stress, I finished my introductory essay, updated and polished my resume, and sent in the application. I hope to get a call back soon. From what I’ve read, if they like what they’ve read, I […]

Harlem

I went back down to the city last weekend to meet some friends. Instead of taking the subway, which takes just over an hour, I splurged and took Metro North. Since I live close enough to the Bronx, I can buy a special City Ticket, and save almost half the cost of a regular ticket. […]

The Floating World of Ardsley

Ardsley train station is an odd one, seemingly floating in the middle of the Hudson River. The first time I saw it, I was reminded of a scene in Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away (千と千尋の神隠し), where the main character rides a train on tracks that run through a river. There is one moment where the train […]

Of Stone

Last weekend I took a trip to the city just for the hell of it. I have an unlimited Metrocard this month, so I figured, why not? With it, I can take buses and the subway as much as I like, without having to worry about my budget. Because of that, I decided I would […]

Cold Spring

Today, mama and I took a day trip to a tiny village up North, called Cold Spring. It’s known as a historic sitemail and has a ton of old buildings. The travel took some time, mostly because we had to transfer at Croton Harmon. You see, the train tracks north of Croton Harmon are not […]

Rerouted

This morning, a train broke down on the track ahead of us, so we were rerouted to another station. That caused our normally local train to skip several stops, including the one near my office. However, this route took us under the currently-in-construction Tappan Zee bridge, which was insanely cool! We were dropped off at […]

A Fun Weekend

Friday afternoon, I got out of work a little bit early, and went for a hike with my Auntie. She picked me up from work and drove us to a farm on the outskirts of Sleepy Hallow. We walked for about 2 hours (until well after the sun went down) before heading home for the […]

The Little Things

Things have been so busy at work that I’ve been trying to put aside some time each day to go for a walk or relax next to the river. This may be before work, during lunch, or after I get out. Regardless of what part of the day I take my ten-to-twenty, I make sure […]
