You Didn't Break Me

You were supposed to be different and you weren’t. You were supposed to be the one who saved me, but that's a different article.

You got me to trust you. You told me you wanted me to trust you, so I did. And don't get me wrong it isn't that easy to get me to trust, but I really thought you were different. I was told by so many people to just take a leap of faith with you so I did.

I promised. I promised that I wouldn't run away this time. I promised I wouldn't let fear strike my heart. Have mercy, I was so happy to have you. You knew just how to deal with my stupid sadness, and I promised you had saved me.

You promise. You promised that no matter what happened between us, you wanted to be there. You promised you wanted to go slow and make sure we both wanted to continue. I didn't hear you put on the breaks. I didn't notice you slowly pulling away.

You didn't break me. You might have stalled me, or slightly slowed me down. You didn't stay long enough to break me. And maybe you didn't want to break me, but I don't know you like I thought I did.

I want you to know even though you didn't break me; you did make me not trust you. Even though I miss you and want to give you another chance, you proved to me you cannot handle that. I wish you best and I hope one day I can look at you without a sting in my heart.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran.
