We are halfway through January on this beautiful weekend day. How have you guys been experiencing the brand-new year of 2017 so far?
I am off tomorrow thanks to Martin Luther King Day (a floating holiday in the US). So today is practically my Saturday, although it feels like quite a peaceful and productive Sunday, too. I managed to sleep in a bit and wake up refreshed. Read More »
Its’ the last day of the year 2016 and you know what that means: Time for the Year in Review!
This year has been certainly one of a kind (well, aren’t they all, the years?!). It seems that the continuous line of change, which has been a very strong part of my life since 2014 perhaps, is slowly but surely progressing. Change – in every way possible – I feel that is the code word of 2016, if any. Read More »
It’s Thanksgiving Day! And my 4-day-weekend has officially started! After an initial confusion over whether or not I’d have to work tomorrow, I decided to just ask for some time off, since the office is usually pretty slow around this time of year. So I am pretty stoked to just get things done in the next four day and be all calm.Read More »
This Friday I visited my friend, who works at the NYC Google offices. He invited me for lunch, so we spent a good amount of time together. He started off by showing me around two of the three buildings Google is currently in. One of them is right above Chelsea Market and offers amazing views over the highline. Read More »
Being off for the first time this week, I strolled around Central Park. It made me appreciate the beauty our nature has to offer. I met up with my friend in the morning and we did a photo walk through the park for about an hour. While we had planned to do this under better and happier circumstances, talking about things and cheering each other up was our main objective today. Read More »
Last fall on exactly this day (November 7, 2015) I spent quite a magical time at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. It was the late bloom of the fall foliage and wow, did the gardens look gorgeous!Read More »
In late October of last year, my friends and I had the amazing opportunity to take a tour during one of the most breath-taking times of the season. The weekend before Halloween, we were led by Chase of Xcelerated Adventures through the hills and forests of Breakneck Ridge. Read More »
It’s the first week of September and summer is slowly winding down. I don’t know what’s better – a crazy busy three months or some slow summer loving. This time of year really turned me upside down in 2016. It seems that every year I experience the hot months in a different wayRead More »
Writing this last post in a series of four seems harder than usual. Even though I know I could go on and on every single month for the duration of a year or two, it won’t happen. I will continue to count my gratitudes every single day but I don’t think posting Read More »
My month of gratitude continues and with it some new things to be grateful for every day.
What was particularly hard this past week was not so much the feeling of gratitude but the lack of time. All of a sudden I was surrounded by dates, birthdays and get-togethers almost every day of the week once Tuesday came around. Sitting back and reflecting on how hectic the past 7 days wereRead More »
Sometimes it’s a challenge to not fall back into a rut. I’m trying so hard to not give in to the post-travel-blues and to acknowledge my day-to-day-life again. But on some days reality can become a bit depressing. I’ve therefore created cheerfulness in my life this month.Read More »
