My first time in New Orleans! I tried to visit back in October, but couldn’t fit it in my schedule. But I’m really glad I got the opportunity now. The laid-back attitude is infectious and reminiscent of Portland — Exactly what I needed after a few months in New York City. I hope to find myself wandering those streets again.

Hannah judges Urbana Diva Slam 2013 in Lower East Side, NY
Saw some amazing spoken word poetry at Urbana Diva Slam, where ladies battled to see who’d represent at the 2013 Women of the World Poetry Slam in March.
I was introduced to poets I should have been following all along: Catalina Ferro, who’s quickly becoming one of my favorites and Thuli Zuma, who took the win Tuesday night. The appearance by Taylor Mali was a wonderful surprise, as well.
Need to do this again. And again. And again.
(Thanks for coming, Daisy & Hannah!)
Sara drove down to New York!
My childhood friend, 18 years and counting. Since the days of, “Wanna play?” Before ubiquitous phones, when she announced her arrival by throwing pebbles at my bedroom window. When she’d come over in the morning and torture me awake so we could carpool to class.
Elementary school recess. Punch buggy bruises. 7-11 candy. Super Nintendo babysat. Four square, tag and tanbark.
18 years and it still feels like we end our playtime too soon.

Hmm… Which will it be?
I’m just happy to be here. Traveled more this month than half my peers traveled in a year.

Thanks Daisy, for accompanying me to the airport.
