Who needs a man when you can have pasta?
Thank you to my college, The New School, for giving alumni lifetime access to the campus buildings. And thank you even more for providing us with free Internet access, because I would be lost without it. Now, on top of always having a clean bathroom to use around Union Square for the rest of my life, I'm also grateful to having a quiet place to get some work done on my computer.

"Happiness lies,
In your own hands."

"Love likes me.
Love takes it shoes off, and sits on the couch.
Love has an answer for everything.
Love smiles gently... and crosses its legs.
Well, here we are.
Well, here we are."

From the song Liquid Days (Part One) by Philip Glass.

"So no one told you life was going to be this way,
Your job's a joke, 
You're broke,
Your love life's D.O.A."

From the song I'll Be There For You by The Rembrandts (also known as the Friends theme song).

I can't even attempt to count the number of times I've heard this song in my lifetime, but it's funny how the lyrics so resonate with me now.

Local news is the best.
Happy 2014!

With no Internet at my current living situation, it's difficult for me to get online with my computer on most evenings.

Right now I'm sitting with my laptop at the Starbucks inside the Union Square Barnes & Noble, but it's really difficult to concentrate here. With the endless stream of seat-seekers, customers, loiterers and crazies as distractions, I don't know how people get any actual work done at this place.

I was recently doing some self-reflecting upon my year that just passed, and it feels like I got a few things here and there accomplished. Overall it was a good year, but the one thing I really hope for in 2014 is some stablity. I honestly feel like it's been quite some time since I last truly felt this, and I'm adamant on making it my goal of the year. Stability in income. Stability in a place to live. Stability in health care. Stability in a career. Stability in a relationship. Ahh yes---stability.

The only stability that I do feel like I've had in the past five or so years was thanks to my sister, and also close friends. Whenever things in my life were rocky and volatile, I knew I was able to count on them for some moral support, a shoulder to comfort me, or even a couch to crash on---and I thank them so much for that.

Well, it's still the beginning of the year, so lets all make it a good one!

Happy Monday.
