subway entertainment

During my 30 minute commute between jersey city and soho (prince & broadway to be exact), I've decided to read everyday rather than listen to my ipod.  Plus the woman I sublet from has hundreds of books stashed in our apartment...I figured I might as well take advantage of the situation and seize the day.  I began by reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.  What a writer.  I was captivated from the beginning. He has a way of twisting your heart and your head simultaneously in ways they aren't normally twisted, which sounds unusual but true.  I don't know how else to put it. The book is extremely powerful and moving in a very creative way.  I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.  I was dissapointed to finish it and wished it had been longer.

The next book I read was The Picture of Dorian Gray.  I had never read it, and considering it is a classic, I decided it was about time.  Again, a very enjoyable read....quite sad, but still enjoyable.  It really makes you contemplate what you value in life and the importance of it.

Yay for summer of subway reading!

New York City Ballet

Last week a friend had an extra ticket to see the New York City Ballet! I was so excited.  What a opportunity.  It was breath grateful that I got to go.

The program was designed very nicely as well....


my mama and dad...and brothers...and grandparents wanted to see where I live in jersey city. So here is my apartment!(literally step by step)

Yesterday some lovely friends and i enjoyed a swell afternoon of croquet and jump rope in the park. It was delightful in every possible way.

Such a neat exhibit.  Some friends and I wandered down to South Ferry to head out to Govenor's Island for too watch Ralph Lauren's polo team for free.....  Sadly, the rain closed the ferry, but we stumbled upon this delightful exhibit.  Each piano key is attached to different appliances all around the room,so when played the room filled with awkward/pleasant noises.  Quite an experience.
