We Are All Carrie Bradshaw

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am sitting on the couch surrounded by beautiful clothes, and I’m thinking… hear me out… when did we decide that the pandemic was a good excuse to not wear clothes? Are we really that desperate to save on laundry? We in NYC have been living in our yoga pants for yearsContinue reading “We Are All Carrie Bradshaw”

Choking on All Our Contradictions

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s the age old story– good girl loves bad boy (let’s face it, there are “bad girls,” too). The movies are chock-full with this storyline– Princess Mia had a crush on Josh, the boating moron, and not the nice guy next door. Not only are movies and tv shows saturated with thisContinue reading “Choking on All Our Contradictions”

Being Human: Look Ugly in a Photograph

“The more you see the less you know The less you find out as you go I knew much more then than I do now” City of Blinding Lights, U2 By: Gabriela Yareliz GREAT EXPECTATIONS Expectations can be a funny thing. This week, I experienced this, first-hand. I was going to exchange letters with someoneContinue reading “Being Human: Look Ugly in a Photograph”

Grand Hotel

By: Gabriela Yareliz There are shows like Grand Hotel (and telenovelas, in general) that attract the masses. They are deliciously dramatic, salacious and mysterious. Part of what makes the storyline what it is are the layers and layers of family secrets and deeds that are being hidden from the audience and others in the story.Continue reading “Grand Hotel”

Danny & Mindy

The Mindy Project is coming to an end this season. Is it weird that I want to see this thing end with Danny and Mindy, together? The world needs positive vibes. We all want to see something work out, even if it’s fantasy. I was never someone who believed in closure or forced happy endings. IContinue reading “Danny & Mindy”

How Love Unfolds

Have you ever seen something that makes you recall and relive your own story or experience? I think that as we get older we start seeing and accepting things for what they are. For example, ourselves. When I saw the last season of New Girl, I realized I was not and would never be likeContinue reading “How Love Unfolds”

Coming Of Age

By: Gabriela Yareliz Sitcoms like “Boy Meets World” or “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” chronicle the daily lives of their characters. It is a series about watching people mature and reach some level of adulthood or maturity, with some laughs thrown in, in between. I think life is very much like that. We all have ourContinue reading “Coming Of Age”

Sunday Girl: October 23, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz Friday came to a close as I sat down to eat a stale piece of leftover pizza after making my apartment look like Monica Geller had come to visit. As I chewed on the pizza, I perused an article about the shelf life of pizza in a refrigerator, on BuzzFeed. Halfway throughContinue reading “Sunday Girl: October 23, 2016”

“It’s a ring”

It’s no secret that I love people’s stories, and I love power couples. So, when I saw that Clooney shared how he proposed, he had my full attention. He said he never thought he’d marry again, but then, six months after meeting Amal, he knew he didn’t want to live without her. Maybe, people outContinue reading ““It’s a ring””
