"As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better."

My name is Anna. I am in my mid-twenties. I was born in Poland. I grew up in Chicago. I lived in London. And now I'm back in the Windy City. Here are the snapshots of my life: professional, social, and a tiny bit of the really personal. firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s a gorgeous day out there, but I’m stuck inside waiting on a Rent the Runway delivery.
[Don’t get me started on how much of a pain UPS and our UPS guy are and the erratic delivery schedule our building has.]
Tomorrow we’re off to NYC to celebrate the wedding of two good friends. The wedding is on Saturday evening so until then, we’ll get to catch up over dinner with another friend and, most importantly, I’ll [hopefully] get to have a cronut on Saturday morning.
Busy day ‘round here as I’ve officially launched my new company!
What started as a pipe dream a few months ago has now become a reality. I’ve always loved events and social media and am SO excited to start running my own social media consulting and event design firm.
Next up: securing a full list of clients ;)
In the meantime, I won’t be offended if you decide spread the news!
Is it fair if bikers get tickets when motorists don’t? Nope. You know what else isn’t fair? Everything. Deal with it.- Sarah Goodyear for the Atlantic
Don’t care much about the cyclists v. drivers debate. (I do my bike-riding indoors.) The tone of this article, however, is awesome.
At this point in time, I hate the bikers in this city. Not just as a driver, but also as a pedestrian.
If I have to stop at a stop sign/red light, so do you.
If you want to use the roads, follow the rules.
If you want to use the sidewalks, follow the rules.
Simple as that.
Ha I used to pass by this place all the time and always wondered what it looked like inside. Not bad!
Morskie oko, Poland (by dondemola)
Hands down my favorite place in the motherland. Morskie Oko is the #1 reason I’m excited for our Euro trip in September.
Since the first time I hiked there with my family as a little girl, I’ve wanted to go back one day with the person I love. If nothing else on the trip goes as planned, I will be happy just to experience this beauty with E. Cheesy, I know.
The last time I went there in ‘08, I really took it in because I knew the next time I go, it won’t be alone.
The above picture doesn’t really do it justice. This one is better:
