Summer's End

Summer is over. I haven't blogged since I graduated since I've been so busy with a new job, traveling, and weekend trips. I can't believe I won't be starting school soon and I'll still be working 9-6 pm every day. I miss school so much I think I might go back for my masters, maybe in London! 

This summer my boyfriend treated me to a trip to Dominican Republic where we met new people, drank unlimited pina coladas and went on so many excursions it felt like a dream. We went snorkeling in Paradise Island, horse back riding, visited 27 waterfalls, and zip lined through a green maze. I'm so lucky to have met such an amazing guy who loves adventures as much as I do. 

I've been working at Ted Baker for the past two months doing social media, which has been great! I love that I get to do what I love for work which is photography and writing.

This summer I also made small trips to the Hamptons with some girlfriends and this past weekend I went to Philadelphia for Made in America. I saw J.Cole, Kanye West, Chromeo, and Mayor Hawthrone. There were a lot of rude people there though which makes me think music festivals are not for me. I really hate being in crowded settings.

Moving on

This past weekend was absolute bliss. My mom came down to see my graduation. Every day I ate so lavishly to celebrate the next stage in my life and completely forgot about this ridiculous "low-carb" diet I'm on. The Marshal, Ippudo, an El Rio are some really delicious restaurants in NYC...a little pricey though. My boyfriend gave me a new plant. I like the details of the rope around the bottle. I really love terrariums because they are so low maintenance and only need to be watered once a week. On Saturday my boyfriend and I went to a sweet sixteen in Long Island where there was a cool photo booth. I felt so old, and I kind of teared which was odd because I just met the birthday girl. I guess I was touched by how much her parents loved her, and how much it reminded me of my mother's love for me. My mom just left to return back to Texas, and I feel pretty sad about it. 

At my graduation our student vice president proposed to their girlfriend, using 'The Alchemist' as an opening note. He said this before popping the big question to her on stage:

"At that moment it seemed to him that time stood still and the soul of the world surged within him. When he looked into her dark eyes and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke. The language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert. Something that exerted the same force whenever two pairs of eyes met, as had theirs here at the well. She smiled, and that was certainly an omen. The omen he had been awaiting without even knowing he was for all his life. The omen he sought to find in his sheep and in his books. In the crystals and in the silence of the desert... It was the pure language of the world. It required no explanation, just as the universe needs none as it travels through endless time. What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only woman in his life. And that, with no need for words she recognized the same thing. He was more certain of it, than of anything in the world. He had been told by his parents and grandparents that he must fall in love and really know a person before becoming committed. But maybe people who felt that way never learned the universal language. Because when you know that language, its easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you. Whether its in the middle of the desert or in some great city. And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love and makes a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning. Maktub.."

It was sweet and streamed live on the the F.I.T. website if you wanted to watch it.

Now that school is over, I'm not sure what will happen but I'm not afraid. I am excited at all the possibilities and opportunities to come my way.

I'm in a fridaze...

And love ..
Such a silly game we play, oh,
Like a summer's day in May.
What is love, what is love?
I just want it to be love

Brooklyn Brunchin

Photography: Katrine & Laura 

Sunday is always a good day for brunch. Yesterday me and my friends went to Iris Cafe in Brooklyn Heights. They had this amazing avocado toast I tried, with a sprinkle of pepper on top. After we went riding around in circles with citi bikes...some thing I am most likely not going to do again. I am always up for trying anything at least once though. I was scared of the cars and I got honked at for being so slow.

I don't like my outfit much yesterday. Sundays are always my day for feeling lazy and throwing on whatever. I love the shoes I'm wearing which I picked up at a thrift store for 18 dollars! It retails for $98...what a steal.
