A few days ago, out of sheer curiosity for my own past - prompted by my love/hate relationship for Facebook memories - I decided to scroll through my own profile. I went deep. Scrolled past photos of friends who I haven’t seen in a while, funny videos I had shared, political articles, and a post … Continue reading WHY OFFICE WORK IS OUT AND TRAVEL WORK IS IN

Millennials, Boomers, and Luxury Travel

For as long as I can remember, my generation - generically referred to as “Millennials”- have been at odds with my father’s generation; the Baby-Boomers (my mom is actually Gen X).

And just like the options in olive oil there are dozens of different types of … Continue reading Olive Oil, and the Paradox of Choice

Goal: Have Enough Material to Trash

Oh the irony, the irony... I'm about to go into a post that goes against how I've handled this blog thus far. See, here is the deal; I am not going to try and pretend I am doing things the right way. Because I most certainly am not. I have let my mental cobwebs settle … Continue reading Goal: Have Enough Material to Trash

Wake up at 5:30 am. Commute. Repeat.

For the last couple of weeks NYC has turned into one of the most stressful cities I have ever lived in. For the fist time in over a year I have come to understand why day in and day out hundreds of people feel exhausted enough to nap during the commute in the subway. I … Continue reading Wake up at 5:30 am. Commute. Repeat.
