Here have some pictures of my bedroom wall which I transferred from college and spent a lot of time re-taping, also featuring my Nan Goldin obsession.

Below: photos from The Whitney, David Zwirner Gallery, my last month in the city, and little excerpts of my writing

February 29, 2016: December ended early but the winter dragged on.

April 22, 2016: I hurled my focus into the world around me in it’s entirety. Every day, I handed $2.25 exact change to the newsstand attendant on University and 9th for a New York Times. I read about the carbon dioxide accumulating in the ozone and the ever-dissolving glaciers nine thousand miles south and the stubbornness of war two oceans away. But ultimately, reading about everything going wrong, no matter how far away, just made me feel inadequate, so I stopped and read books instead.

April 23, 2016: For quite some time, I found a dull comfort in always knowing what tomorrow was going to be like. I still do. And despite it all, I forgive them and myself and all the miles in between. I don’t really think there’s much else I can do.

April 7, 2016: In the past three years, there have a been a number of things that have stayed the same and also things that have changed beyond recognition. And what ended up surprising me the most, I suppose, were the things that remained the same. Because they were never the same in the right way.

April 12, 2016: I found myself among women in brown fur coats, men speaking familiar words in soft lisps. I found myself lost in red-carpeted halls. I wandered past a cocktail party eight floors up. And I had come alone, but it didn’t feel that way.

April 14, 2016: I never did get used to opening those blinds every morning and seeing California.

April 26, 2016: There are days when all I can think about is the spring when the cherry blossoms fell down like snow and we played poker in the dining room. About the day when we gave up and threw the cards across the table, kings and queens speeding to the floor like kamikaze pilots.

April 30, 2016: “And how do you carry on after you’ve lost everything?” “You go out and you lose it all again until you understand that you can’t ever really own anything.”

May 18, 2016: There was a time when I admired her. What would knock most people to the ground, she could bear with ostensible ease. Of course, that eventually changed along with everything else.

Dear Reader,

By now, I’m sure you’re probably sick of hearing about my love affair with museums. But the way I see it, the more museums you go to, the more you start to see everything as art, especially stuff that isn’t in museums.

I just left New York for the summer and am missing the city quite a bit already, so I’m afraid you’ll just have to bear with my nostalgia for a bit.

In other news, I added a May playlist to the Music Forum so please do go take a look and as always, comment songs you think I’d like. A few of the songs for this month were actually recommended to me last month in the comments — I really do listen to all the songs you tell me to!

And on a final note, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your sweet comments on my posts I really do read all of them (and try to reply to as many as I can). Every last one makes me smile and I don’t say thank you enough — thank you!!

I hope you have an incredibly beautiful day.

All around the MoMA (New York Museum of Modern Art) are these wooden blinds which create the most distinct little shadows on the floors/walls. I actually ended up taking more photos of filtered light in there than of the art. I don’t want to bore you with all of them, but here are just a few of the ones that turned out best.

Instagram user @smoothliminal commented on my post of this photo saying these shadows ^ looked like bones and I quite agree.

^if you live in New York, I highly recommend the Vine’s mint ginger lemonade and black cherry gelato.

Also while I’m making food suggestions a good friend from high school came to visit me in the city and introduced me to the most amazing, adorable cupcake shop. If you’re ever in the city, you must stop at Magnolia Bakery it is truly the real deal.

Dear Reader,

I have so many things to tell you. First of all, I have created a new page on my blog called Music Forum. This was inspired a reader who commented on one of my posts recommending that I watch the music video for Australia by the Shins. I did, and have been playing it on repeat for several days now. I’ve been a fan of their music for years, but never got around to watching their videos which are all so great. This particular one is quite the day brightener please go watch it when you finish reading this. But anyways, I’ll be posting songs from my current playlists on that page, and I encourage you to comment music suggestions, links to good music videos, screenshots of playlists, etc. Music is such an important part of my life and I don’t feel like my blog reflects that enough. And I am always always open to music suggestions I read through your comments every day and will be sure to check out the songs. And I will add suggestions I enjoy to the next playlist!

In other (not so new) news, I spent another afternoon in a museum. I had a meeting on the Upper East Side again at the ever lovely Bluestone Café and then headed over to the MoMA. There was this new exhibit that I loved so much ~ ^ all the photos of people closing/opening windows. For the longest time, this blog has focused mainly on writing and fashion, and I plan on continuing to post about both of those things, but I also want to start posting more frequently ~ hopefully twice/three times a week once summer arrives ~ about music/art/films/photography. All these things play such huge roles in my life and I don’t write/post nearly enough about them. So prepare yourself for more posts like these.

And finally, some very exciting news: I’ve been working with I’m In Marketing over the past few months to create an app for this blog, and we just completed the Android version. The iPhone app is still in the works, but if you have an Android and want to keep up with this blog in a more mobile way, give the app a download! You’ll get push notifications from yours truly, a forum where I’ll be more accessible than via email, and access to all of my posts/photos. Updates coming soon regarding the iPhone version:) Previews and download link below:
