Gonna Get Me A Kilt

By: Gabriela Yareliz Guys, I saw a trailer for a TV show on Starz the other day, and it stayed on my mind. It felt fun and exciting and looked like life.

“Does the acorn dream of the oak? And if it doesn’t, from where is the whisper of spring?” Sophie Ward (From The Love River) By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s a quiet morning, with the exception of the gurgling of the radiator and my screaming neighbors (they are positively unwell or just typical New Yorkers).

Smooth Sailing

“She had the perpetual sense, as she watched the taxi cabs, of being out, out, far out to sea and alone; she always had the feeling that it was very, very, dangerous to live even one day.”  ―    Virginia Woolf,    Mrs. Dalloway By: Gabriela Yareliz This book is probably the weirdest one that has madeContinue reading “Smooth Sailing”
