June 2019 Insights

By: Gabriela Yareliz The insights of the month of June. The insights come to me in between the walks past the bakery that just opened, with its “Grand Opening” funeral flowers, getting elbowed in the face while exiting the train (almost broken glasses– nerdy much?)– only to find the permanently broken escalators of the trainContinue reading “June 2019 Insights”

The Childhood

By: Gabriela Yareliz I walked into Claire’s to get a birthday gift for a beautiful, bright little girl who is special to me, and it took me on a ride down memory lane. I remember how much I loved Claire’s, as a kid. I liked it more than the Icing because the Icing had mostlyContinue reading “The Childhood”

Sonam Kapoor: I Didn’t Wake Up Like This

By: Gabriela Yareliz Sonam Kapoor has always been an inspiration to me. Before Chrissy Teigen was making provocative statements and making us laugh with her wit on Twitter, there was Sonam Kapoor on Koffee with Karan. She always says what is on her mind, and I love her for it. Yesterday, I was talking toContinue reading “Sonam Kapoor: I Didn’t Wake Up Like This”

It’s weird when suddenly you aren’t living offContinue reading ““Adulting””

The Sequel Begins

By: Gabriela Yareliz Changes are interesting, and they are particularly interesting when they are a more “permanent” kind of change. This summer was great (I have so many photos and insights to share post-bar exam; I promise, it’s coming soon). Summer is about to conclude with the bar exam. I still think of the yearContinue reading “The Sequel Begins”

Reflections Before Bedtime #2

[Me, probably eight years old, being ridiculous at my abuelo’s house, wearing my grandmother’s nightgown.] By: Gabriela Yareliz Several people who were once closer to me (friends) have noted that I seem different but the same. It happens around the holidays, when people see you after a long time and when you are my ageContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #2”

Celebrating Life

By: Gabriela Yareliz 1] Royal baby-OH YEAH. The royal baby arrived today! Congrats to the Will & Kate. This long awaited child finally arrived. I mean, there were people on the news trying to talk about what the baby would look like, playing some genetic bingo–not kidding. UK is in a frenzy over this. OrContinue reading “Celebrating Life”
