This is Not America.

“You can always come back…” “How do you describe New York to someone who’s never been there?” Reminiscent of the David Bowie song from The Falcon and the Snowman, “This is not America.” New York ignites a fire in your soul that simply can’t be dowsed, offering a platter of endless opportunities. Some say they […]

Routine.

Don’t mind me. I’m just staring at this screen trying to figure out what the hell I should write.
