Long time no see --- things are not good in America

Hey everyone, it's been 2 months. Jeez I'm really bad at this. School got a little crazy after I last posted, but I'll try harder to post more often.

My last post was on November 7th, just a day before the earth stood still, we were so young, naive, so mislead. On November 9th when the results were officially in, it was like doomsday in NYC, and many other cities around the U.S. Everyone was dragging their feet, it was very very dark and cloudy, people were crying, sulking, wailing, everything. It was very depressing, and upsetting. We were all so angry, scared, and filled with despair. I felt especially afraid and paranoid as a person of color that I would be targeted for a hate crime (like many others have in NYC after the election). Racial slurs and swastikas started popping up in random places around the city: the subway, payphones, walls, etc. It was such an ugly sight to see....

So it's 2 months later and we're all still pretty disgusted and upset, dreading the next 4 years, but yesterday while in Boston visiting my friend, I saw women of all colors/ages/religions marching and chanting  in solidarity, the same thing happened in cities all over the U.S., and all over the world: Washington D.C., Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Austin, Denver, Sydney, Nairobi, Capetown, Tokyo, London, even ANTARCTICA!!!

Millions of people marched yesterday all over the world, and it gave us all the needed hope and energy boost . It's only the beginning, and we need to harness this energy throughout these 4 years. Even though things will be very difficult and we'll have to deal with a crybaby in chief, I believe that we can do it. 2 years from now we will vote to replace all of the people in the senate, and I will make sure my butt is at those polls, and I'll drag whoever I know with me!

Prospect Park

Yesterday I decided to take a short trip to Prospect Park in Brooklyn and walk around for a bit. I don't got to Prospect Park very often so I thought it would be a good idea to check out the foliage there. I'm a bit starved for nature/peace and quiet so this was a really nice break. Unfortunately my camera died about 10 minutes after I got there, but that's ok because it gave me an opportunity to just take everything in and relax. Gonna keep it short this week, hope you all are doing well, hope fall (or spring if you're below the equator) is treating you well!

P.S. If you're American, please go out and vote on Tuesday, and for those who are not American, keep us in your thoughts and prayers, this election could make or break us, and we're all terrified =S

Tryin' to relax...

Taking a walk through Central Park is really relaxing, especially after you've managed to finish most of your homework for the weekend. I don't want to be that person that complains all the time, but man, grad school is a lot of work. Lots of busy work unfortunately =/

Anyways, besides grad school, everything else is pretty alright. My rabbit is chillin and happy as ever, I got a $20 coupon from DSW (shoe heaven) which was great, I bought some much needed Shake Shack yesterday, and I finally took my camera out for a spin after 3 months, shame shame shame on me.

Hope you all are doing ok, I'm going to attempt to do some exciting things this month so I don't fall into that slump of being a graduate student hermit, only emerging when I need food and water, so stay tuned! But don't expect anything too exciting, I'm a relatively boring person haha.

I'm so sorry....

It's been exactly two months since I've posted something on here, and I really have to apologize. I hate the fact that I sort of abandoned this blog, but it was always at the back of my mind. 
Anyway, since I got back from Haiti, my scheduled kind of went into full throttle. I started working a lot more, and in September I started graduate school at New York University! A few other exciting things happened during my long blog hiatus:

1. My close friend got married in August, and I played for the ceremony. He got married at a vineyard, which was awesome, the wine was pretty great too *wink wink*
2. My other close friend got engaged, and will get married in December. I'm gonna be a bridesmaid y'all. 
3. I went to the ice cream museum with my brother, it was kind of disappointing but very instagram friendly haha hence the two photos (the deer head and the pink ice cream).
4. Celebrated my 24th birthday about a week ago. I like the number 24, so I hope that means that I'll have a good year.

There are probably other things that I'm forgetting but anyway, I am very very sorry for not posting; I was really really banking on having a constant posting schedule, but life always has other plans. 
Thanks you all for sticking around, and I'll find a way to post more regularly.
