19 Candles

    Yesterday was my 19th birthday. 19 is really such an odd age. At 18, you become a legal adult and you can vote. At 20, you are no longer a teenager. At 21, you can legally drink alcohol. At 19, you are sort of in this transition period. Nothing monumental happens upon turning 19 years of age. But here I am, writing to you, having existed on this earth for 19 years and one day. I do, however, think that a lot has happened between my 18 and 19 years of ...

Brunch and Ensemble: Friend of a Farmer

  In line for brunch at Friend of a Farmer, we spotted a rustic red-colored building laced with vines. A wide stairway and romantic gate led us to huge doors that I one day hope to use as I enter my home. It was 75 degrees in New York and I found a dress in my closet that resembles frayed denim that everyone so loves these days (not excluding myself). I haven’t discussed this particular bag on my blog much, but it is the Coach Ace Satchel and it fits ...

A New York Winter Day

It has snowed twice in New York City. One day was a blizzard and the other day didn’t even qualify for cancelled classes. I almost feel bad when I am back home and relatives and friends ask how I am surviving an East Coast winter because, well, I’m doing pretty well and some days the temperature here in New York was warmer than in San Francisco (for that, I apologize). That said, my winter coat came in the mail the other day and I have worn it almost exclusively despite ...

How to Stock a Dorm Fridge

Yesterday I tried my best to be an adult. It wasn’t easy, but I made it out alive with a brown grocery bag in hand. I rode the subway back with a Whole Goods bag nestled between my feet and a grin on my face because I could cross another thing off of my week’s to-do list like a real adult! I won’t lie and say that I didn’t get pushed around a little in every aisle or try and say that I didn’t stare at 37 different Greek ...

Andytown Coffee Roasters: A tribute

If you are searching for me on basically any given morning, you can most likely find me at Andytown Coffee Roasters, the light of the Sunset district in San Francisco and the light of my life. Andytown is actually short for “Andersontown,” a quaint town in Ireland that perfectly reflecting the quaintness of this corner spot. A single communal seating space with one shared wooden tabletop welcomes you to the counter, where you place your order with one of the amazing baristas you will find here. The atmosphere adapts to ...

Hollow: A San Francisco Coffee Shop

Tucked away in a sea of traditional buildings is a green storefront that serves as the entrance to Hollow, a coffee shop in San Francisco. Upon walking in, you are greeted by a quaint atmosphere and a line of small, round wooden tables. On the wall above the tables, there is a rustic-framed window that plays the role of a menu, each pane a different category. If you walk a few more steps, a double-door entrance on the left gives way into a second room. The walls in this room ...
