Life Lately (24).

College makes one accustomed to having a mere three hours of the day occupied. With some two classes a day, I had a freakish number of free hours at my disposal. How I spent those hours continues to stump me, but I had them nonetheless. So now that I have a 9-5:30 internship schedule, I’m far more conscious of the time I have for myself and how I can best spend it. In short, I’m attempting to make the most of my far less open days. Here’s how.

I’ve found myself in a committed relationship with my local Yoga to the People studio, where I head for quick vinyasa practices when I can.

I continue to walk my way through the city’s diverse ‘hoods. From the pristine Upper East Side, pictured above, to Prospect Park.

I’ve wandered over to the Met to check out the Costume Institute’s spring 2016 exhibit, Manus x Machina. The show, which examines the contested intersection of handmade and machine-made, as well as haute couture and ready-to-wear, fashions made me wish I was famous, could attend the Met Gala, had reasons to regularly wear blue-sequined gowns, etc. You catch my drift.

As usual, I’ve also found myself in the kitchen, where I’ve made super simple staples that take minimal time, but pack maximum flavor (and health benefits). Winners included the homemade hummus and fruit + nut granola featured above.

And when the concrete jungle has felt a little claustrophobic, I’ve spent time elsewhere. Pictured above is my favorite hiking trail in Connecticut, where the lush woods makes me feel a wee bit calmer than midtown Manhattan. Go figure.

Hope Life Lately is treating you well, too. Check back soon!
