A Thought on Travel

It’s been 1 year, 9 months, and roughly 15 days since I left New York to live abroad. In that time, I’ve done more traveling than I ever have in the 31 years that I have been alive. In a couple of months, I’ll be traveling once again (to California this time) to visit family […]

Throwback Tuesday 007

  It’s hard to believe that Easter is almost here. Our school lost quite a few of our vacation days this week because of all the snow we had this winter. Due to those snow days, we lost two days this week, as well as the day after Easter. This has caused  a lot of […]

Evening Stroll

I’ve been feeling the need to change things up a bit lately. For a while my days have been following the same boring routine: get up, get ready for work, go to work, drag myself home, watch YouTube until its time to go to sleep, repeat. The only changechange to my schedule has occurred while […]

Throwback Tuesday 004

When I was younger, I wanted to move to White Plains. I thought it was the height of sophistication, for some reason. I can admit that it is a beautiful city, especially in the spring and fall, but the allure has diminished somewhat as I’ve gotten older. To me, White Plains was what New York […]

Throwback Tuesday 003

Another throwback from April 2008 today. These were growing in a small park in White Plains, judging by the other shots in the folder. Over the years, a lot of my posts were of photos taken in this very small park. White Plains, on the whole, is very pretty in the spring. A lot of […]

The Changing of Seasons

So, it looks like autumn’s here at last. I mean sure, the autumn equinox was last month, but for most of October it didn’t feel like fall completely. Now, with the trees all colorful (or even completely bare), it really hits home for me. Before we know it, it’ll be Thanksgiving. This will be my […]

At Night

Everything looks so different at night… There are hardly any people out around 10 p.m, during the cooler weather. In the summer, people would be out chilling here until almost midnight, but now it’s a ghost town. No one’s even driving around! I wonder if this is what it would look like if all the […]

Sun Drenched

Been out and about a lot this summer, at least compared to last summer. Spent some time relaxing in the shade, people watching. I’m not one for air conditioning, but I also dislike hot and humid weather too. I’m such a pain in the butt, I guess…

The lonely little side street

I never see anyone walk this way anymore. I know it’s a shortcut from the main road to the train station, but the side street just off that path gets practically no traffic. There are always bikes parked here, probably from early morning, but no people.

Winter Conditions Continue

It’s still cold and we’re still getting snow every few days. The walk to school keeps getting harder and harder as the snow and ice pile higher and higher. There are points when my mind recalls that part in one of The Lord of the Rings movies where everyone is fighting to walk through deep […]
