10 Perks of Being a New York City Night Owl

by Lauren Malamala
Like many freelancers and “slashies” in NYC, I don’t have the typical 9-to-5 work schedule. In fact, I’m all over the place since I have clients in different time zones – not to mention, carving out extra time to work on my own career as a singer/songwriter. Even on weekends, it’s not unusual for me to head out with a friend at midnight and return home around 6 a.m.


City Cocktails: Summer Sangria

I kicked off the summer with cocktailing in the city.
We officially kicked off summer this past weekend, and what a gorgeous weekend it was! I hung out with family and friends and felt more like a tourist than a local. We ate brunch, walked the High Line, saw a Broadway Show, ate delicious Italian food, and even went cocktailing.

I have a confession to make: I’ve been going to the same hairstylist since the age of 13, and I don’t let anyone else come at my head with scissors. Since I have thick, curly Polynesian hair, it’s not the easiest to work with unless a stylist is a well-seasoned pro. Unfortunately, this means that I only get my hair cut once a year when I go back to Seattle to visit my parents for Christmas.

How to Deal With Rejection in New York City

If you're living in NYC, you need to learn how to deal with the word, "No."{credit}
"Sometimes I feel my whole life has been one big rejection."--Marilyn Monroe
Rejection is a normal part of life in New York City. With the population now reaching nearly 8.5 million, people get turned down for jobs all the time. But rejection can also rear its ugly head when auditioning for a role, trying to get into a hot new nightclub, or finding a place to live. Even Barbra Streisand was once turned down for an apartment at a Park Avenue co-op.

I can hardly believe that Memorial Day weekend, also the kickoff of the summer season, is almost upon us. While millions of people from around the world will trek to New York City over the next several months, thousands of New Yorkers will leave the Big Apple as the temps begin to rise. Some will escape to their beach houses in the Hamptons or Nantucket, and others will travel to international destinations, soaking up rich culture from uncharted places around the globe.
