Just some thoughts, Ladies and Gentlemen. Right or wrong...just what I was feeling at the time. - S. Carter

Ok, so I know it's been AGES since my last update -- and for that I apologize. It's just that life has been sort of a whirlwind, and well, my time hasn't exactly been my own. I'm not using that as an excuse, exactly; I'm just saying that I've been busy.

Let's see what's happened since my last update: I've graduated from my Master's program, started a new job in NYC, moved to Brooklyn, moved to Manhattan, and come pretty close to losing my mind a few times. That said, God is STILL GOOD, and I'm finally getting the hang of this crazy city. I now know how to navigate the subway, hail a cab like a lady, ignore immense amounts of outdoor foolishness, and deal with a crazy/lazy landlord (hence the move from BK to Manhattan).
I've started writing restaurant reviews for Heed Magazine (it's a fantastic new lifestyle magazine, founded by the brilliant Saoul Vanderpool -- make sure you check it out), and I'm also the communications director of a Manhattan non-profit.

I am absolutely going to try to keep this thing updated regularly, because well, I have a story to tell. And I think people should (and might actually want to) read that story. My opinions and thoughts are always my own, but I'm finding more and more people who agree with them, so that means it's time to put them down on paper. If I may say so myself, I'm back and better than ever!

p.s. A name change may soon be in the work. I'll always be an NJ BAP, but I work for too hard for that to be how I am identified. Stay tuned!
