The Adventures We’ll Go On

By: Gabriela Yareliz I miss getting dressed. I miss putting on clothes to have fun and not to be practical (long walks or doctors appts) or for a short excursion to the grocery store (because oat milk). I miss getting dressed for life. I can’t be the only one. The New Yorker published a funContinue reading “The Adventures We’ll Go On”

RIP Eateries

By: Gabriela Yareliz I mean, we all knew it was bad, but yesterday, I saw with my own eyes a Greenwich Village that was vacant and closed down. Such a depressing sight to see. Many eateries that marked special moments, whether it was where I ate with my mom when I first moved here forContinue reading “RIP Eateries”

Studio Update 16

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello, from the land of tent hospitals and seclusion. Here we are, dear friends. I worked, and then my employer scheduled a Zoom social, so I joined for a bit. It was nice. We mostly discussed our favorite karaoke songs, and we got introduced to each other’s plants, children and pets. IContinue reading “Studio Update 16”

Studio Update 14

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today was one of those days where I was thinking about what it feels like to be outside. Sort of reminded me of this writing project I once did of describing colors to a blind man. If you’ve never tried it, I would encourage you to try— even if just for curiosity’sContinue reading “Studio Update 14”

Studio Update 13

By: Gabriela Yareliz I saw this image this morning, and this is how I felt walking out (more like running out) of the grocery store with my eggs, the other day. I was so tired yesterday, guys, that I woke up tired. Two days ago, I saw myself in a video moving my hands likeContinue reading “Studio Update 13”

Studio Update 11

By: Gabriela Yareliz First, I wanted to say I got the eggs. Yep. I was crazy enough to get the dang eggs, garlic, oat milk (ugh, I know, I am one of those people), and some cookie mix because Lord knows I am sick of seeing everyone baking on Instagram. (I never bake. It’s oneContinue reading “Studio Update 11”

Studio Update 10

By: Gabriela Yareliz Update from yesterday: so, the neighbor made a cute wooden fence during yesterday’s Zoom calls. He didn’t sign it to me through the window; I just got nosy and investigated with my invisible binoculars. (Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do to stay informed. You have totally done it,Continue reading “Studio Update 10”

Studio Update 9

By: Gabriela Yareliz I put on perfume, today. I did the dab-dab on the pulse points after my oatmeal breakfast. Yep. I was ready for Friday. I put on some eyeliner, and smiled into the mirror like I was going somewhere. (You know the smile. The one where you tilt the head slightly and purseContinue reading “Studio Update 9”

Studio Update 8

By: Gabriela Yareliz Do I choose eggs or life? I started off the morning debating whether it was worth risking my livelihood to get eggs at a NYC grocery store. It’s not. You see, I am a vegetarian, and I avoid dairy, but I do eat eggs on occasion. Not often. But sometimes. There areContinue reading “Studio Update 8”

Studio Update 7

By: Gabriela Yareliz Greetings from the studio. I did venture out today, to the basement, to take down my recycling. Yes, crisis is no reason to stop recycling. I was met by an old woman huddled in the corner of the elevator. (There are no stairs to the basement). She was clutching a scarf toContinue reading “Studio Update 7”
