When a met a tall, lanky, long-haired boy with “Everybody Poops” tattooed on the inside of his wrist, I never thought that he would be my first ever customer. Back then, this blog was still mysteriously anonymous, and I only had two jobs – hat making and blogging – in addition to school instead of [...]

Still spinning on this tdf high, it’s all I can do to wait for the weekend where a tdf brunch is planned. I’m secretly [okay, not so secretly anymore] scheming. Brioche from Bouchon Bakery or Balthazar? Or should it be a croissant? Coffee or an Americano from Abraco? I’m torn. But one thing I’m certain [...]

I’m not going to lie, I secretly love owning exclusive things. The earrings I got in a small store in a stylish Tokyo neighborhood, the bracelets I never take off, and the tiny track frameset I now proudly own. Sure, other short people own the same Dolan, but none in Boston, and none have doused [...]

1.57am. That’s when I finished. Not like that’s unusually late these days. Between rides, blogs, and scheming, late nights are becoming part of the whole routine. A dizzying one that has me nearly falling asleep as I brush my teeth and having small fits of existential crises over gchat. All while some part of me [...]

In a former life, I would either be currently attached to a TV or in Kentucky, with a ridiculous hat and a mint julep. Because, hello, today is the Kentucky Derby. The first of the coveted Triple Crown, I’ve dreamed of watching this legendary race in person for years. And back when I would have [...]

Despite both of my classes having been canceled today, I rolled out of bed at the usual time. Granted, I can’t sleep past 8am on any day, anyway, but I was sort of excited to get up and pick my way across a floor littered with fabric, tailor’s chalk, and some random pins [ouch!]. I [...]

I cannot stand not multi-tasking. If I’m working on hats, I have a DVD playing [due to lack of TV], IMing on the other laptop, and my sewing machine in the middle of the whole mess. This is probably why I’m not nearly as efficient as I could be but hey, I only have so [...]

I woke up uncharacteristically late this morning, half fully dressed. I do remember what happened last night, despite the fact that I finished off a whole beer [even chugging the last quarter of it]. But that’s mostly because I haven’t really slept. But sleep is for the weak when Cambridge Bikes puts on an alleycat [...]

Despite hailing from the land of really twisted psychological thriller movies, I can’t watch scary movies. Even the really cheesy fake ones. I end up lying in bed with all the lights on, terrified. I might be considered tough enough to brave the elements on my bike, but anything scarier than “Bambi” will make me [...]

Last night was the first time I’ve finished more than a third of a beer in a looooong time. Actually it was the first time for a lot of things: staying at a bike shop after closing, keeping my bike at closed bike shop to get it later, and grabbing beers [or in my case [...]
