Lifestyle: Architectural Interventions

After The Labor Day Weekend

I stayed indoors the entire weekend, even after planning countless day trips to places encompassing the central coast. I don’t know what really came over me on Saturday morning, when I woke up early and made myself a cup of coffee and turned on the television set, for a few minutes I said to myself, […]

Lifestyle: What Are You Watching On Television?
