Breakfast Date

—Friday, April 20, 2012— Even the best laid plans could go wrong. But this plan was pretty cool.

Travel Date

—Friday, November 11, 2011— Walking to Penn Station, I stopped to get some snacks for the train ride. I felt somewhat unprepared for travel without snacks — they were essential to passing time.

Tattoo Date

–Saturday, September 24, 2011– Why was I waking up at 7 a.m.? I was way too tired to be up so early. After a week of jet lag following a trip back from Hong Kong and having to pull an all nighter for work that Tuesday, I was absolutely exhausted. I didn’t need to be… Read more »
