I love some good fiction but being in school until recently, I
didn't get to read enough of it. Junot Diaz is fantastic and I find
myself re-reading his work over and over. I read some Isabelle
Allende last time I was in South America and enjoyed her work, hope
to read more. Looking forward to Jhumpa Lahiri's new book. As for
non-fiction I adore Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow and its
relevance to my work. I love a solo Sunday brunch and a New Yorker.
I love music, most kinds, but not country. I dance to hip-hop and
reggaeton, and I know enough salsa and bachata to make a night of
Spanish dancing. Now that school's over I would love to get back
into seeing live music. I've been deprived the last few years and I
know there's enough music in this city to feed me for a lifetime.
Feel free to show me around.
I haven't owned a TV since 2000. I watch some stuff on
Netflix/HBOGO - the usual suspects I imagine. House of Cards, Mad
Men, Girls, Scandal, Parks and Rec, random documentaries. I'm
loving Orange is the New Black for a lot of reasons and seriously
critiquing it for others.
