After living in New York City for nearly a decade (on and off), I recently returned to Southern California, Riverside, to be exact. While my hometown is a landlocked jewel with art, great eats, and fascinating architecture, I’m on a new life journey. These are my adventures, as my life on the East Coast has become a (real life) sitcom spin-off. Neurotic moments, fart jokes, and sarcasm, included.

  1. Thanks for stopping by and following my page! I love going to New York. Having never lived there, the appeal has never faded. But I’m glad that you enjoy it so much. I go there a couple times a month, living in DC it’s not too far. The post you wrote about the New Museum has got me planning my next trip. I’d love to get some more city-scape pictures of the city. Good luck in all you do and I hope you get a chance to check out my future work.

  4. Thanks for following my blog Darionotabiji. It seems we have a lot in common. A good coffee and a good portion of brain food makes a good day for me. In Tokyo i had my coffee “hotto!” So now it’s time to explore the coffee culture of New York.

  5. Thanks for following my blog! I, too, have a fondness for both the east and west coast. I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  6. Thanks for the follow- I felt a slight twang of longing when I read ‘Naked in the Subway’. Don’t get me wrong, I love the tube, but ‘mind the gap’ can get tedious. Would love to visit New York. I can only imagine the fashion inspiration. Great work, keep it up x

  7. Just recently joined WordPress, and I think I’m really going to enjoy following your blog!
