On an episode of CSI NY (Crime Scene Investigation), this past season, there was a murdered male whose body parts were left scattered throughout the four corners of Hell’s Kitchen (Episode: Sláinte). The investigators brought the torso back to the medical examiner’s office; where the ME stated […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
My life has become a non-stop carousel of airplanes, luggage and hotels. Work, work and more work through countless meetings in a seemingly endless rotation of cities and states. Some places are easier to travel to than others and some places are downright difficult emotionally, physically and spiritually. […]
I love road trips. I have gone cross-country four times now from New York to California. Usually I have taken Interstate 80.I have had a chance to see parts of the United States that perhaps not many New Yorkers have seen. As a matter of fact, and I […]
When I first went off to boarding school at age 14, shared bathrooms was such an odd, culturally jarring experience. Taking shower in a shared stall was something that ran counter to the idea of Puerto Rican privacy. But I got used to it. Thus, by college shared […]

Socks! oh socks; where art thou? Growing up in the South Bronx, there weren’t that many people who lived in houses, let alone owned them (or so was my experience). This meant many of us had to go to the Laundromat to wash our clothes. Throughout the years, […]
Sugar is a glorious thing. It can be. Kind of like Glory “Glorificous” in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Without sugar and caffeine I would not be able to get my day started. On a good day, I may have four coke zeros and a bag of gummy bears. […]
The year 2012 has been a big year for me. I just turned four while traveling in Curacao and I was treated very well. Plus, I went to Japan earlier this year and I am soon going to full-day Pre-kindergarten. Apparently, this year is also when I was […]
Its labor day Weekend. Woohoo! wait, Im actually not that excited by that. Are there labor day sales, anymore? If there, do I even want to bother shopping in environments of madness? Back in the mid-1990s we used to wait on line for what seemed like hours, to […]
Putting the Labor Back Into Labor Day: Did You Get a Rejuvenating Summer Vacation or Did You Work Yourself to Exhaustion?
Why do holidays no longer feel like holidays? Modern technological innovations have brought us pagers, cellphones, laptop computers, Skype and all manner of electronic leashes to our work. Communication is fast, and the pace of work has ramped up to match it. How many times have you sent […]
