In the past six months, I have had two days off from work (not counting weekends). One was to take an MBA summer semester final. And the other is today - a beautiful, non-rainy, wonderful, warm summer day in New York City, that I am spending out and about, with the love of my life, celebrating our 3 year anniversary together :-) Couldn't ask for a better Friday in August!
Best. Day. Ever. Happy 3 year anniversary to the love of my life - and cheers to many more to come! :-) and happy Friday to everyone else hehehehe!
The Empire State Building lit up with rainbow colors to represent and celebrate both Gay Pride weekend in New York, and the Senate passing a same-sex / equality rights for marriage law (only by 4 votes, and that too in a Republican controlled Senate). Overwhelmingly amazing! YAH GO NEW YORK! GO EQUALITY AND LOVE AND HUMANITY! :-)
New York legalized same-sex marriage.
New York passes equal marriage law.
"It's truly a historic night for love, our families, and democracy won.'' "New York became the sixth and largest state in the country to legalize gay marriage, breathing life into the national gay rights movement that had stalled over a nearly identical bill here two years ago."
"New York becomes the largest state to entrench marriage equality, and the legislature’s reversal may create momentum for proponents nationwide. The result will likely be attributed to shifting public opinion. A Quinnipiac poll cited by the New York Times suggested that support for gay marriage amongst New Yorkers rose from 37% to 58% in the two years separating the failed vote from the successful one."
Law and Order CI filmed outside my work today on Wall Street. I saw them shoot the same detective scene 12 times! Reminds me of my days working in film in Cali :-) And yes I did see Vincent D'Onofrio aka Detective Goren and Kathryn Erbe aka Detective Eames :-)
3 years ago tonight, I got on a plane with a duffel bag & suitcase, woke up April 4th morning & started my new life in New York City, my biggest dream since I was 16. Here I am 3 years later: living my dream, supporting myself, completing my health care MBA, working in my field, helping people everyday, found my soulmate, in love & enjoying every moment in the greatest city in the world :-) DREAMS DO COME TRUE! :-)
