quaraNYC: the city that never sleeps finally took a nap

it’s amazing how fast things can change, am i right? one minute we’re living our ok lives, being socially distant by choice and masks were reserved for medical professionals and halloween. now, we’re making the best of things, staying socially distant but with less of a choice, and personally, i have 4 masks in my bag at any given time. that was…

i’m still here!

well, hello you!  via GIPHY wow, even i didn’t realize how long it’s been. what’s funny is that i thought i’d be a blogging machine during this quarantine. turns out, when even less is going on in your life than usual, it’s hard to think up content. like, what is there to say? then there’s the fact that i have…

stoop tawk: texting and its rules – a rant.

kids are assholes.

i try to keep things light around here. weight loss and witticisms, that’s what’s on the menu. every so often though, i feel the need to talk about things that aren’t so fun and light. i’m being a little bit dramatic, but i didn’t know how to start this post since it’s a little bit out of my norm. well,…

2019: in review

it’s new years eve (well, it was when i started this) and i’ve been putting off writing this post for about a week. not for any reason except i’m lazy and i’ve been sick so staying up and paying attention has been hard. i love the idea of a new year. i tend to get a high on the hope…

it’s streaming season, bitches!

who am i kidding? it’s always streaming season. but, with winter in full swing and our current favorites still on hiatus, we’re all hunkering down ready to dive head first into a *insert streaming service here* binge. that’s my favorite kind of diving, tbh. but what about the shows that didn’t make it? the ones that were never given a…
