Flat tire, driving ticket, and some Twitter wisdom

Ok, I’m seriously not cool with life right now because it seems to be kicking me in the ass quite a lot lately. To the point that I’m re-thinking of becoming a good person or something. To the point that I’m this close to opening a non-profit for baby gorillas. Because that’s what this world needs: more good people, and baby gorillas. Don’t quote me on this. Anyhow, yesterday might have taken the golden medal, if there was a golden award for being a dick day. It started with rain. The morning started with rain. And it’s hard enough to drag...

Cherry blossoms, Easter, and Trump is still our president

Happy Easter to all people whom this applies to. Because I’m assuming I have a devoted Christian following. Obviously. And my Easter weekend was great. That is relatively speaking, and more on that to follow. Firstly, I haven’t had much time to blog lately, and it doesn’t seem like that will be changing soon. So I’ll do it, when I do it. Because that’s a solid plan, without actually being a plan. Anywho, the weather seems to be warming up finally, and it’s a good thing. Except for all the wardrobe adjustments that now need to happen for ‘when it’s nice...

My niece thinks she’s the princess. She’s right.

Yesterday was my niece’s first birthday. And it was special. It was special because I happen to like her a lot. I also helped her bring into this world. Totally happened read about it here, also Twitter helped. So I guess I felt like it was a celebration of me because I’m her godmother also, and because why the he’ll not. In all seriousness, my sister and her husband are doing a great job in raising her. I mean the child is alive, so obviously. Also, she is one happy baby. This part is a coincidence? But she’s our only...

The Pirate Who Does Not Know the Value of Pi

Normal life doesn’t have my stamp of approval. So I’ve been back from Paris. And it’s like I’ve entered hell. Every aspect of my life has decided to blow up into a shit storm. Diarrhea style. And normally I just call everything a bunch of fucking bullshit, but I was too tired to do even that. Excuse the amount of curse words in this paragraph, you can tell I’m somewhat frustrated. Also, I’ve been sick on top of being exhausted these past couple of weeks, and I tell you that’s a potent cocktail. I haven’t been doing anything artsy, or hipster, or interesting...

Paris has my stamp of approval

So, I went to Paris this past weekend. And I’m not going to lie, it was great. My Ukrainian origins might have something to do with this, as we consider ourselves somewhat European, and being in Paris also felt like somewhat home. First things first, traveling is stressful no matter how you put it. As I found myself hyperventilating at one point or another. Airports, security, customs, herds of people, time tables, and rotating schedules. Honestly, I think all of it works by the sheer will of God, or careful planning and execution, either way. I did successfully make it to...

Get your discount for organic tampons NOW

First things first, remember the good people of LOLA I told you about in my last post? Well, we did end up getting in contact with each other, and they did give me a promo code for friends, and family, and what not. And since you’re my friends, and family, and what not here it is: lkolisnyk2 for a $5 discount. And before you wine that it’s so small, just check them out, and make a conscious decision about signing up with them. And I’m just possibly saving you $5. Buy extra gum with it or something. Today was another snowstorm...

We’re women, we bleed, and it’s ok. Probably.

So yesterday was the International Women’s Day. And you want to know how I celebrated this special day? I went to work. I went to work like I normally would, and just sort of worked. Then when I was done with that, I got home and spent an hour on the phone with an insurance broker, just something I promised my parents to help with. And once I was done with that, I changed the light bulbs in the kitchen. Because you can just take my word for it, kitchen without lights becomes less useful, and more dangerous. And then...

I’m going to Paris mofos!

So I haven’t written any posts for a while, and I did it on purpose. It’s a slick publicity move. Which is meant to keep you intrigued. Where you intrigued? Not really? Thought so. It was more like the usual adult life taking over. And I let it for a while, but I’m done now. And I’m back for good. A few things I have to tell you. I went to the Armory Show on Thursday, and it is probably the largest gathering of contemporary art galleries showing in New York. It’s also probably one of the fanciest. Because the...

What is MoMA PS1

I started writing this post about last Sunday since probably last Sunday, but never got around to finishing it. It still seems kind of relevant, so I might as well finish it now. I promise to be more disciplined in my blog writing. Maybe. Sunday was the first sunny day in a while. And people took to the streets. Literary almost everyone I know suddenly decided on the outside activities of different sorts, just to be out in the air, and in the sun. It’s like we’re goddamn flowers, which actually above behavior sort of suggests we are. And I just called you...

On doing yoga, exploring human fear, and saving a baby bird

It’s official, you guys. This week I have passed my 21 days morning yoga mark. Meaning I’ve been doing this morning routine long enough for it to possibly become a habit. Because that’s just some psychology trick that I might have read about on Facebook. And all sarcasm aside, I can tell you that I do feel less sarcastic. Which kinda sucks because it’s always been my thing. And now I need to find a new thing, probably raising chickens, and making my own compost? Happy people seem to always go down that route. But until that happens, I’ll share...
