Sine ullo vivere desiderio– I gotta keep telling myself this. Being here is worth it, money is just an obstacle.

For me, money is like…wearing a pair of skinny jeans. REALLY skinny jeans. It’s so tight that every step I take is just excruciatingly painful…and hurts my groin. Every time I step outside my house is always a potential fatal blow to my bank account (which currently consists of $60). Lee’s… WORD, Dan. I’m on the same boat.
I need to stop
spending money. Unless I get a job, money will only be used for metrocard and sometimes food.

… I can’t spend any money. Funds are low, I have no job (yet). Starving student/intern begins now.
Forreal this time.
So this is gonna be the REAL NY BLOG, because I have been putting off for so long, and I actually have time to sit and type :) holla! This coming Tuesday will mark my first full month here in NY. I’m still getting used to the weather, but it’s all been so amaze-balls. I’ve said before that I’m in love with my org. When I first arrived I was welcomed by all the staff, and I...
It is beautiful outside, aside from the 90 degree+ weather, I’m slowly getting used to it. Working with my org has been amaze-balls. I look forward to it every morning, even though it’s an 11-hour day four days a week. More recently though, I get to come in late because we have another intern that will be here until August. HOLLER. I really love working with my org. LOVE. It’s...
I miss dancing. I need to fill this void somehow.
I wrote a blog about NY...
and it didn’t post. I’ll do it soon.
rockyrivera: The shooting garnered national attention because there were at least six cellphone cameras on the BART train car to capture the event. However, in this new age where absolutely everyone has a camera, there can be drawbacks. Video footage of an event that is grainy, obscured, distant or from just one perspective becomes absolute truth. The ostensible reality of such raw footage...
OSCAR GRANT →
another article I got from Alejandro’s Facebook. smh.
RIP Oscar Grant →
I’m so flustered and disturbed by the verdict. This article is pretty biased, but definitely has some good points. I’m in solidarity. I had a truly inspiring time with my organization today that reaffirmed why I am a Community Studies Major. The Oscar Grant case laid the icing on the cake. As long as I am a person of color, I believe the system will always be against me and people...
At 7:30 am
I was already sweating MAJOR BUCKETS. It’s 9:30pm, and it’s still the same. I’ve been complaining about the heat a lot, my bad. But really? It hit 102 today, and when I got to work, the AC wasn’t working. But… it got fixed just before it hit 102. thank goodness.
Got an apartment. :). pics and blog post later.
