A petty confrontation with another tenant in my building revealed a much darker subtext lurking underneath.
An actual blog post and not a personal essay, for once.
In the grand scheme of things, will your legacy consist of the images you curated or the contributions you've left behind?
Reflections on the last year of my life, and a few focuses for the next one.
I’m a jagged piece that doesn’t fit into the puzzle.
Once upon a time, I found pride in being called an "influencer". But now, that label is a thorn in my side.
I considered myself pretty healthy...until I fainted due to mild dehydration. Now I'm revisiting the basics of everyday health.
New York is a demanding place-one that most New Yorkers are proud to live in. But maybe I've reached a point where the city has asked for too much.
A year and a half into my freelance journey, I've learned a lot. It'd be selfish of me to keep all this info to myself...
New York City's subway has been in a state of constant decline for the last 10 years. It's time for the MTA to get its shit together.
Musings on natural hair and identity...
One year into my natural hair journey, I'm further exploring the connection between black hair and identity.
It's impossible to examine my identity without understanding the intersection of homosexuality and blackness.
In an age where 'content' is in constant demand, what does it mean to make art? A meditation on creativity.
We know that masculinity can be toxic, overbearing, and in your face. But what the hell is it, exactly? And does it still matter?
I know I need it. I'll listen when it's presented. But it doesn't mean I have to like it.
Millennials are the largest generation in the U.S. And officially, we're the least interested in marriage and kids. What gives?
When you turn 30, it's assumed that you possess baseline knowledge of a range of topics from changing a flat tire to balancing a checkbook. But does this universal knowledge still matter?
The word 'freelance' is not a pseudonym for 'poor'.
I've always considered myself a millennial by definition. But the more I research, it's clear no one can agree on the definition.
How do you know if a friendship is worth saving? If it's time to let go, how the hell do you do it?
More isn't always better. As human beings, we can only handle so much interaction. So, what's the point of having so many "friends"?
Those lingering gray dots are doing more damage to your relationships than you think...
Politics isn't the only subject that can make our online interactions with "friends" unpleasant. What do you do when their content turns ugly?
We closed out our honeymoon with Christmas markets, currywurst and glühwein. And oddly enough, the last stop before home was the one that felt the most familiar.
Space brownies, fast food in vending machines, the looming threat of being run over by a bicycle...Amsterdam was pretty amazing!
Drinks in a laundromat, the rarest steak I've ever had in my life, Karl Lagerfeld's bookstore...clearly Paris was my favorite city of my honeymoon.
Part one of my two-week honeymoon began in London. Over four days, I debunked the myth about bad local food and fell in love with...Tesco's.
To be an entrepreneur is to live in a constant state of flux. When bad things happen, should you give into fear or keep chasing success?
After 2.5 years in the blogging game, it's finally time to dissect the name Uptown Bourgeois.
