Happy 2015!!!!

So here I am again. Sorry for the prolonged absence but I guess I had forewarned you all when I started this blog that I do so when I am able to find time to post. This brings me to resolutions for the coming year. In these last few minutes I think the first thing that pops to mind is definitely to work on my time management when it comes to doing things that I enjoy, like when I get a chance to sit and write on this blog.

This year was full of challenges and many rewards as well. I learned a lot of hard lessons but overall I have felt rewarded both personally and professionally. I am grateful for my wonderful family and friends who have stood by me through thick and thin. I am also grateful for my coworkers because I feel very happy to work with such wonderful people.

As usual I always mull over what I would like to get out of the new year that is upon us. I think this year I will keep it simple. I would like to keep in touch more with my family because we are so far in distance so I need to feel like I am not dropping off the face of the earth with them. Same goes for seeing my friends more often which I have been really bad at this year, except for a few who have kept me engaged when and checking things off my restaurant bucket list (you know who you are, and I love you all for it). I would also like to stop my Walter Mitty attitude of getting trapped in my head when it comes to making myself emotionally unavailable to anyone who has remotely shown me any kind of romantic interest. This year I am going to open my heart and let myself be vulnerable as uncomfortable as it may make me to not be in control. I leave you with something cheesy but very much in keeping with how I feel from a song by Scorpion called The Best Is Yet To Come.

Don't look now, the best is yet to come
Take my hand, the best is yet to come

To those of you out there still reading my blog, I wish you the best of everything in 2015. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Randon Images - From My Archives

Ever since I got a phone with a semi-decent camera it has become easier for me to take pictures of things I find to be cool or interesting. One of the saddest things to happen to me of late was the loss of my phone at the hands of a pick pocket who caught me on a day of ignorant bliss and took with it some really cool images. However, as I started digging into the many I had already downloaded to my computer I found the ones below which are some of my favorites having to do with buildings, spacecrafts and one very cool lounge. I hope you enjoy them.

Gotta love Calatrava.

Lounge at the W Hotel next to the World Trade Center.
One cool place to hang out and get away from the crowd.

I Want It - Office Furniture and Organizing Gadgets

I am not sure if you guys know about Fancy. If you don't it is basically this website that you can sign up to if you are into design oriented products and fashion. I get e-mails from them about every two days with pretty cool ideas for gifts and other stuff. Today's email was about organization and I came across some pretty cool stuff that I thought I should share because it just seemed like the right thing to do. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these products as much as I am, dreaming that I will be able to own them in the near future.

Too Good To Pass Up

I got this lovely quote from Pinterest but unfortunately got blocked from going to the original site where it was posted because of security certificate stuff. Anywhoo I thought some of you might get a kick out of it and perhaps even relate to it.
normal... LOVE THIS!!!!!!

Quote Day - Don't Rush

I found this one on Pinterest and it came at a much needed time. Lately I have found myself wanting resolution on a lot of issues in my life and have had less patience than I should. This was a great reminder to just take a step back and let things happen the way they need to instead of forcing the change.

Clear your mind here
