I’ve always loved art. I graduated from one of the top arts high schools and middle schools in the nation. Before you get too excited, I majored in the Communication Arts. I can fully explain why Communications is an art (see future blog post) but the point of this post is that I just love being around art, in all different forms. I’m fortunate to have the level of appreciation for the arts that I do.
Go big or go home, right?
Not only did I go to a white party…I went to Palm Springs, CA, the unofficial capital of white parties…for what can only be described as lesbian spring break. I went to a Dinah Shore White Party.
For this experience, I chose to write a letter to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Of all people, why them, right?

I moved away from Florida for a few years and I remember fantasizing about the beach when I got homesick. When I moved back, I vowed to take advantage of all of the great things South Florida has to offer – especially the beach.
I’ve been back for 7 years now and I hardly go to the beach. But I feel like when I woke up this morning, the universe was like, “Get out of bed and lay your lazy ass on a beach.” Continue reading
Alright, I did it. I made a card for a stranger and I left it on their car in a parking lot. It’s either going to make someone’s day or freak them out.

So many reasons why I need to learn Spanish. Everybody around me speaks Spanish and I don’t (are they talking about me?). I look Hispanic so people often speak to me in Spanish (they don’t believe me when I tell them I don’t speak it). And, in order to get a job in around 30% of South Florida, speaking Spanish is a requirement. Continue reading
