    Mystery Film Roll

    New-to-me experience: finding a used-up roll of film and not having a clue of what was on it. Rodrigo and I threw ideas back and forth on what the photos could possibly be. We were both wrong. Dating back all the way to the Autumn of 2014 through New Year’s Day 2015, I was surprised by all the wonderful portraits I took of my friends. This one has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while and I didn’t even know it.

    Snippets from 2015

    Sad but true: this one roll of black and white film spans from February through October 2015. One of my goals this past trip in Peru was to take a lot of photos on film. When I usually get my film developed, I go through photographer’s remorse when I realize how little I’ve captured. Unfortunately, this still happened during my most recent trip in early October. I swear I took more photos, but I guess it all ended up in my iPhone instead. Part two of Peru is coming up… as soon as I finish my roll of film.   California, February 2015 Berkeley   San Francisco   Santa Cruz…

    Disastrous Afternoon Tea at the Russian Tea Room

    The Russian Tea Room is an iconic restaurant in New York City. It’s one of those restaurants that you just know by name. My friends (Moz and Loreal) and I finally decided to give RTR a try during the holiday season. When I think of High Tea, I think of endless delicate finger sandwiches with a pot of good tea. We made sure to eat breakfast early so that we would have empty stomachs for our meal. My friends and I also decided to dress up for the event seeing that it’s not every day that you go to the Russian Tea Room. We booked reservations for Afternoon Tea on…

    Day 27 of Missing You

    It’s been almost a week since I last wrote so now I feel like a total slacker. I thought that it would be a good idea to just catch up on the last few days because our last Skype session was full of Skype kisses and not much talking. (Speaking of which, it was so different Skyping during the day. I did not appreciate the multitude of interruptions… But I’ll take what I can get.) Wednesday I think we are pretty up to date with the majority of things that happened on Wednesday. Caitlin and I had a coffee date scheduled. We picked up our photos at the photo place…

    Dear Best Friend

    Regardless of your boy drama, it still looks and sounds like you are having an awesome time in London. It sucks that you won’t be going to Paris this time around, but I promise you that in the future, we will have our version of Anna and the French Kiss. So in regards to some interesting points in your email, I decided to list them out because it might just be a more organized fashion to address all the random things: White coffee: Funny how I’ve never, ever heard this phrase before. I guess it’s something you really don’t know unless you’ve lived there for a while? Huh. Well, regardless,…
