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 […]

Red

This weekend’s been rather nice. I’ve caught up on my sleep, enjoyed a couple of good meals, and spent a day exploring the city. While Saturday’s weather was a bit cold and damp, Sunday was absolutely beautiful.  According to the forecasts, the temperatures were supposed to top out at around 43° F, but Sunday afternoon […]

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 […]

A Little Bit like Glitter

I’ve been working on an essay about myself, for a job application. It’s been slow going, but I’m trying to get it done as soon as I can. As I’ve said in my last post, it feels like my job status may be changing in the next few months, so I should probably work on […]

Choppy Seas

So much is constantly changing. It’s making me pretty dizzy, to be honest. One moment I think my world is one way, but the next it’s the complete opposite. Work, for example, has been all over the place. For the past few months, I’ve been assigned to one type of assignment, but no I find […]

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. […]

Creating Waves

The last two weeks have certainly been an experience. I have been hesitant to speak of it before now, but things seem to be settling down somewhat. You see, my department at work has been going though some… restructuring. It has caused me to do some thinking (a lot of thinking, actually) about my future. […]

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 […]
