Free the Nipple

This week, I watched “Free the Nipple” on a total whim. It was a movie unlike anything that I’d ever seen before. Because it was based on true events, it was difficult to tell what was fiction and what was real. At times I felt like I was watching a documentary, while at others I seemed to be watching a chick-flick. In all, the short ‘n sweet movie felt very organic and “grass-rootsy.”

It’s Friday, Friday [#5]

Now that finals are done and I’m back at home, I’m searching for interesting things to do in my city instead of sitting on my butt all day catching up on TV. So, this weekend I may head down Dallas Arboretum to take a look at their “12 Days of Christmas” event. Let’s see what the garden looks like in the winter, shall we?

Union Square

This little square in Manhattan holds a special place in my heart. During the summer, I lived only 1 street away, so I often went to Union Square at night to walk, call family and friends, and people-watch. There was always something going on, and the busy little piece of concrete was like my second home away from home. I do not by any means “know-it-all,” but I would like to share some of my favorite places and moments from my times there. CAUTION: get ready for a picture-filled post!
