I started this blog to document my 3 month stay in beautiful Helsinki in the first half of 2011. But now that I've made my glorious return to the big apple, be on the lookout for random musings about my love/hate relationship with nyc, lots of photos, and just snippets of everyday life.

(all pics by me, unless stated otherwise...)

Americans love Mexican food. We consume nachos, tacos, burritos, tortas, enchiladas, tamales and anything resembling Mexican in enormous quantities. We love Mexican beverages, happily knocking back huge amounts of tequila, mezcal and Mexican beer every year. We love Mexican people—as we sure…

After I took his portrait, I asked him if he could remember the happiest moment of his life. He thought for a moment, put one finger in the air, and said: “Albania, number one!”

This is the most inspiring video I’ve seen in a while.

Watch. Listen. Be aware.

David Foster Wallace’s commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice.

“My local library branch started doing this “Blind Date with a Book” thing, thought you guys might like it. The shelf was full when we got there, but was like this as we were leaving. The books are wrapped in paper and have different designs on them, and then a few words vaguely describing the subject matter of the book. Things like “Drama”, “Plot Twists”, “espionage”, etc. The only thing exposed on the book is the barcode that you use to scan the book out. I thought it was a pretty cool idea.”

literaryjukebox:

That’s the paradox: the only time most people feel alive is when they’re suffering, when something overwhelms their ordinary, careful armour, and the naked child is flung out onto the world. That’s why the things that are worst to undergo are best to remember. But when that child gets buried away under their adaptive and protective shells—he becomes one of the walking dead, a monster. So when you realise you’ve gone a few weeks and haven’t felt that awful struggle of your childish self — struggling to lift itself out of its inadequacy and incompetence — you’ll know you’ve gone some weeks without meeting new challenge, and without growing, and that you’ve gone some weeks towards losing touch with yourself. The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they did’t live boldly enough, that they didn’t invest enough heart, didn’t love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.
