where have i been

It's been quite a while since I've made a proper update. Sometimes life just moves so fast, it's hard to track of it all. I'm sure we all have those days... or months in my case. 

I've been having some insanely awesome days at work, it's like I've suddenly found my groove and it's not going unnoticed. I've never honestly been good at much, but I can say now that I've officially found something I excel in. It's the strangest (and most wonderful) feeling to be stopped in the lunch line by a coworker you've never really talked to, and be congratulated on your work.

Some fun things I've wound up in lately: poetry reading at NYU that were inspired by Outkast, taking my boyfriend to my hometown, my big brother getting married, and turning 25(!)

Here are a few photos from the past few weeks. Upon uploading them, I realized it was time to step up my photo game - so I purchased this camera feel free to let me know if that was an awful idea, of course. In the meantime, enjoy:

 

This is from my birthday, which was spectacular - by the way!

We took a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge on the coldest day of fall. I've had a head cold ever since.

Gotta love the felt pigeon lady! Although, she isn't very nice.

I got a raise, as well as a new desk at work. Look at this pretty chandelier that I sit under!
