Anthony Green - “I’ll Miss You” 

good morning. I had just put on my makeup and new lipstick and my hair was big and awesome and I totally began channeling my inner Beyonce “Flawless” and then I got on the subway and this song came on and I broke down in tears. so hey, Monday, you’re doing me swell so far.

can you guess why I lost it? only four months after and nope. I still can’t.

The way you live your life 
Like you’re running out of time,
I’m gonna miss that
(I’m gonna miss that)

The way you do the things you love with so much love
All I remember is us raising hell and having the best time,
I’ll always call on it and just so you know,
I’ll miss you, I’ll miss you

The way you loved your friends 
Like just in case this ends,
You’ve got to go on and cherish your life,
Living up every moment and you’ll be alright,
All I remember is us raising hell, I’ll miss you
Live every moment like this is the end,
Spend all your time with your family and friends,
All I remember is us raising hell,
I’ll miss you, I’ll miss you
Oh, I’ll miss you, oh, I’ll miss you, 
Oh, I’ll miss you…

Dear Neighbors,
There is a wrong way to eat muffins. This is how my friend Alisha eats muffins, and it is one of the wrong ways. It hurts me to even think about it. She scoops the inside out with a fork leaving behind the crispy edges of the muffin top and the ridged sides of the muffin base and basically leaving behind a sad, deformed carcass of a muffin. Please do not try this at home. Evey time this happens an angel loses its wings. Or something.
Dear Alisha: You are a muffin murderer.
-YN
(Please note that the pieces of muffin top that are missing were eaten by me.)

HATER.

Dear Neighbors,
This is the only photo I managed to take during the Bed Stuy crawl on Saturday. I will admit that this was not actually my sandwich, because by the time I decided the pulled pork and gingered slaw was delicious enough to warrant a photo, mine was already gone. Frenchie kindly obliged and let me take a picture of his instead. I really want to go back to Bedford Hill and try their herbed grilled cheese with prosciutto. Yum!!
-YN

reasons I love this photo:
1) it’s Sara! and she was drunk!
2) no really she devoured the sandwich in like 3 secs
3) the only pics ever shared of the boof are always just his shirt
4) yay friendships at Bed-Stuy Crawl!
5) you should all def go visit Bedford Hill

Hey Neighbors,
Pictured above is Smooch, a lovely little organic cafe in Fort Greene where I met up with a fellow tumblr user last weekend. It was lovely. I think that recently I have been really blessed and have been meeting a lot of passionate and fascinating people. They each keep inspiring me to do new things and improve my life. Alisha was great and really reinvigorate my desire to travel and reminded me about some great things that I love in Brooklyn (like independent books stores and delicious food). It was really a great experience and I can’t wait for my next trip!
-YN

if you let me, I will fill your days with talks of Brooklyn, food, and travel. it’s just my life these days, and I love it.

Hey Tumblrizers,
I have an IRL date with a fellow Tumblr user and I am pretty, pretty excited. (I hope she doesn’t turn out to be some evil, murdering, serial killer, which is what I always worry about before dates. If she eats my face do you think she will write a blog post about it?) Also, I will get to check out Greenlight Bookstore in Fort Greene. Then it’s off to the Greenpoint Gallery Tour. This is going to be a good weekend!
See you around town!
-YN

I will absolutely write a blog post about it. 

Yay book dates in Brooklyn!

we’re the same person living thousands of miles apart. cannot deal.

Totally wish we lived near each other, we could be anti-social jerks together.

don’t worry. srsly gonna buy a ticket to Miami for my birthday. so, make room for me on the beach. also have a full glass of red wine ready at the airport.

I think blind confidence was my main strength at the time of my decision to move abroad, and it’s also helped me throughout my expat life. I simply knew that it would work, and everything else after that just became inevitable. However - and this is a lesson learned - having confidence must also carry you through the times when everything doesn’t go the way you planned, in that you have to be flexible and just plain “wing it” some of the time and maintain enough confidence to know that it will all work out in the end.
