I’m beginning to feel as if I’m living right smack in the middle of the intersection of Past and Future, but where Present doesn’t yet exist. It feels like a small detail that’s been left out; a detail only I’ve noticed. I can clearly look forward and see what’s ahead; I can turn around and … Continue reading The Old Cars
Africa is amazing! And adventurous! And wow! Look at all the animals! I can’t wait to hug Africa, guys! Do you want to hug Africa with me? Let’s go on safari! Well, “stylist and blogger,” Golriz Moeini would like to tell you what she thinks of Africa, but more importantly, why she loves Africa. She’s … Continue reading This is, quite possibly, the dumbest thing you’ll ever read
It was raining and I was wearing heeled ankle boots. For some reason, my umbrella was leaking heavy, nonrhythmic drops on my head every few feet. I couldn’t see where the drops were coming from because it was dark and I was too busy half-running, half-walking down Broadway. Oh well, wet hair be damned. I had to hurry, … Continue reading Chilly Gonzales: Piano Concerto No. 1
Sunset in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Continue reading Tonight in Greenpoint
There are a lot of benefits to living in New York City, but as all New Yorkers know – there are also tons of drawbacks. Every single morning, I am woken up by the fury of several loud, complaining, shaking delivery trucks driving by my second floor apartment bedroom window. It’s the sound of 10,000 … Continue reading Early Mornings
Eating fruits and vegetables is boring and gross. Who wants to chew all of that pectin and nature? That seems like a lot of work, possibly requiring the help of a knife and fork, with very little payoff. I don’t know about you, but I think a jelly donut and a two-liter Pepsi, followed by … Continue reading How To Trick Your Body Into Thinking You Maybe, Possibly, Kinda Ate Something Healthy In The Last Week
In response to my post “The Art of the American Nickname,” I received so many thoughtful, interesting and supportive comments from all over the world. This topic really struck a chord with a lot of people – how they view themselves, their names and their personal identities. I loved that all of you shared your stories … Continue reading So, This Happened…
For those of you who were kind enough to stop by, read a little sumthin sumthin and even leave a comment – thanks so much! You keep reading and I’ll keep publishing my particular brand of nonsense. I am reading all of your comments and I’m planning on replying soon, but there are quite a … Continue reading Thanks!
Adam Ostrow, Editor in Chief of Mashable.com, is really weird. He gave this presentation at a recent TEDtalk and managed to bum the whole audience out. To him, it would be super cool if – based on previous material posted by you – Facebook, Twitter et al, could continue to post and update your pages … Continue reading Adam, So What You’re Saying Is: Robot Ghosts?
To most people I encounter, I have a wonderfully (or not so wonderfully) difficult name. For those of you who’ve never heard (of) my name and don’t know how to say it, it sounds something like this: Sa ‘roo ja nee. Got it? Maybe? Take your time, practice a little, I’ll wait. My name is … Continue reading The Art of the American Nickname
I can’t say I’m surprised (can anyone actually say her death is shocking?), but the loss is felt nonetheless. There is no one like Amy Winehouse, and while her life seemed to rocket upward and then spiral quickly downward, likely, no one is going to fill the musical hole she leaves behind; a deep, soulful … Continue reading In Memory of Amy
(I’m listlessly staring off into nowhere, thinking about you.) Hey MTA, It’s Sarojini, but you can call me Suzi (don’t ask). I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to invite YOU to Brooklyn this weekend, with yours truly (I’m currently pointing to my breastplate with my right index finger). So take … Continue reading MTA: I Think I Love You
Recently, I’ve been getting emails about my stagnant blog and this brings up two points: 1) I really need to write more, and 2) I’m shocked anyone actually reads this. Thanks! I’m working on it. I’ve been busier than usual, but I will start posting again. What have I been so busy with exactly? I … Continue reading I’m working on it…
It was 30 years ago today that the world lost a great voice for free expression, political activism and positive movement. I was only four years old when he passed, but I already knew him well because of my musically-inclined mother. I grew up in a home filled with music, free-thought and higher philosophical pursuits … Continue reading Celebrating Bob Marley
Y’all know how much I love tv, and like everybody else, I especially love The Office (except for my sister, she hates it, but she’s from another planet). With the approaching departure of Steve Carell’s character from The Office, I’ve been going over great Micheal Scott conversations (problem: they’re all great) with hopes of sharing some … Continue reading Goodbye, Michael.
I was listening to Ani Difranco (cause that’s the kinda mood I’m in) and this stayed with me longer than usual. when i was four years old they tried to test my i.q. they showed me a picture of 3 oranges and a pear they said, which one is different? it does not belong they … Continue reading My IQ
No, this isn’t the most recent installment of the Twilight saga. It’s real life and it’s happening tomorrow night. According to NASA scientists, this phenomenon occurs only a couple of times during one’s life. The phenomenon, called the super moon, refers to the particular moment when -during the full moon phase- the moon’s orbit is … Continue reading Super Moon!
