Reflected on the Water

Had a great time with mom last weekend. Been busy as hell since then. Big project at work had me working lots of OT, but since I’m not supposed to go over 40hrs, it looks like I’m going home early today. It was crazy. Boss treated us to a nice lunch. Thanks boss!! Have a […]

Going on Adventures

Since I was little, my mom’s been trying to keep me from going places where I don’t belong. This isn’t one of them. It’s actually the buffer between the residential area of Nerperhan Ave and the Saw Mill River Parkway. To me, it’s another place to explore. Yonkers once was almost all rivers, until the […]

A Bright New Start

I got a call from the company my brother works for yesterday. I was offered a job. The job starts later today. The commute is a bit long, but the pay and hours are good, so I can’t mind too much. Through it, I should be able to start paying down my loans. From what was said […]

Frustration

I have so much time now, but I don’t know what to do with it all. I’ve been continuing the job search, working on my art, and trying out some new things. It’s starting to get really hot (we are getting closer to August, which is New York’s hottest month) so I haven’t been feeling […]

Forested

Provided I’m wearing a comfortable pair of shoes and that I’ve eaten something, I can walk for miles without break. It drives my family crazy and makes them not want to go on walks with me. There’s just something about walking that clears my head in a way nothing else can.

Shapes

I would really love to snag an office job, somewhere in the city, after my contract with the school ends. Something with a lot of paperwork– a cubicle would be nice– and little customer service work. I want to be a pencil pusher. That’s my current dream. I want to make a decent salary and […]

Central Park: Blue

I remember a good friend once asked if I would be willing to rent a boat with him in Central Park. At the time, my answer was a hearty “hell no!” For one, I am deathly afraid of being on a boat. Second, I was afraid of losing my phone (i.e. my primary camera) over the […]

Central Park: Green

Although we have yet to implement Brother’s plan to rent bikes in Central Park, we have walked the majority of it over the past couple of years. In our last trip we walked from the entrance at 59th all the way to the subway on 77th. Other times, we have walked as far as 86th. […]

Overflow

Brother and I have decided that we should visit the city much more often. We’re thinking that we’ll visit at least once a month, now that we’ve found easier (cheaper) methods of travel. In the past, a trip to Manhattan was a treat, a special occasion, as the train fare would be around $30 for […]

Another Walk

Brother and I went walking again. This time it was a bit further along the Bronx River. This area was more akin to a small forest than the last spot and had a cool little walkway under one of the bridges. The walkway was flush level with the water and the space between it and […]
