Pardes Seleh

There should be a name for people who are always late to everything, because that's definitely me. But better late than never right?? Anyway, I'm currently in New York City so I decided to make a NYC vlog. NYC can be fun to visit but I'm always overwhelmed when I'm here, for a variety of reasons mentioned above!!! Also - just in case it seems confusing, I grew up in Los Angeles, not NY. I only lived in NY for a couple of months before moving to Washington, D.C. after graduating from college. If you're a New Yorker pls don't take this personally! I tend to trash NY and my past lives etc. but who knows, I might have an awesome time this week and become braindead from all the partying and suddenly start loving NY lol. See you on my livestream tonight!

HERE IT IS!!! The photoshoot vlog you've all been waiting for... it ended up being a lot shorter than I had expected considering how much footage we got from it, but that’s how you know I kept all the best highlights.

Nick Kalivretenos is the photographer I was telling you about earlier, he shoots models and other talented women in an artistic fashion. The girl who did my makeup is Kimberly Thompson, she herself is a model and professional ballerina. AND of course, our very own Ford Fischer of News2Share was the one filming much of this vlog. It was a lot of fun and it felt so cool to have such talented and already busy people put time into MY photoshoot. Be sure to follow their social media if you haven't already: on Instagram, Nick @1nicolas1 and Kimberly @theredheadballerina - and on Twitter and Facebook, Ford @fordfischer.

FYI: I won’t be doing my regular weeknight livestream tomorrow night, Monday, because I’ll be celebrating Sukkot with my family. I should be back by Tuesday. Follow my Twitter for updates!

HEY fam,

This video was supposed to be uploaded by this morning, but as you know my technical skills are shit and for some reason I've been having trouble with some of the longer clips I filmed of the protesters being led into vans and talking to some of the protesters, so unfortunately we won't be having any of that in this video :( BUT if somehow it ends up working I will delete this video and replace it with the full version. Plus, next video will be way more interesting --- footage of my entire photoshoot from this week!!! See y'all tonight on my regular weeknight livestream. I'll try not to be late lol.

Hey peeps! So I did a poll asking if you'd rather see my uploads Sunday/Wednesday or Monday/Thursday and you picked the first. Which is awesome.

This video was supposed to come out yesterday but I woke up yesterday with just the lowest motivation to do anything or go anywhere or get anything done, and a smelly feeling about myself. Like, what's the point of anything, why am I 26 years old and still confused about who I am or what I'm doing, why can't I just be normal and functional just like everybody else, yada yada. I was lying in bed when suddenly the admin for my pole dancing class texted me that there was gonna be an aerial beginners class opening up in an hour and whether I wanted to take that. So I said okay - hopefully this would take me out of my dumb mental state. Which it did actually, plus I learned some new tricks! Hopefully I'll become good enough at that so it won't be so embarrassing to film haha. In general, I'd recommend picking up a new skill for any of my friends who struggle to get up in the mornings or feel motivated about life or work. It's okay if you suck at it - in fact it's even better, because you have more growing to do in that area and so the growing feeling will last you for a longer time.

Anyway, hope you enjoy seeing the animals :) see you tonight on my late-night livestream!

After this second Trudeau blackface apology interview came out, there was no way I wasn't going to do another parody. Haha.

I had a meeting in Capitol Hill yesterday, and I figured it'd be the perfect time for me to show you what it's like out there. I feel bad for shitting on the place so much - it's admittedly exciting to be on the Hill, otherwise we wouldn't all be there all the time. There is always a lot going on, and there's always a good number of high profile people at any spot at any given time. In the midst of all that, though, there's so much poverty, homelessness, crime, and drug use in that same area and seems to have become the norm.

Apologies in advance for saying "like" and "basically" so many times. I'm cringing just playing it all back but I promised a video about my cartilage piercing so here goes... lol. In case you were ever thinking of getting your ear cartilage pierced, this is pretty much how it looks. I went with my friend Leah during the week to get hers pierced at Fatty's in D.C., then I did it myself later at a different Fatty's. Enjoy!! Ideas for my next vid are always welcome. :)

My friend Steph took me to my first Conservative Jewish holiday service Sunday night. It also happened to be my first Rosh Hashanah service in years, since I'd been actively avoiding religious services since I left the Orthodox Jewish community a few years ago.

We usually think of conservatives as traditional or right-wing - but as you'll see in this vlog, Conservative synagogues tend to be far from right-wing. The Conservative synagogue we went to, Adas Israel, allows men and women to sit together during the holiday services and employs female rabbis and cantors. The service took about an hour long, and I got to talk to one of the female rabbis, who also happens to be Steph's close mentor. It was so different from the Orthodox services I was used to, but much shorter and easier to sit through haha. It was also fun to be with Steph and her roommate Annabelle, and I got to tell my mom that I'm attending a Rosh Hashana service.

Full-disclosure: this video was going to be one of me cleaning up my room and setting up decor, but I looked it over and it was all super duper depressing plus my room looks like a psych ward right now so I changed my mind last minute. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this. Or that it was enlightening at least! I'll be back on tonight, as usual, for my past-10-pm livestream. See you then :)

My childhood best friend Leila traveled down from New York to Washington, D.C. to visit me and her sister. Some of you know about my instability over the past couple of weeks - things are finally settling down, and having Leila stay with me at my new place made it really feel like home. We had real fun - she helped me set up my bed, went to a party hosted by Steve Bannon, visited her sister, hit this vegan cafe called HipCityVeg (Leila's a vegan), stopped at the Apple Store in the city, got our nails done, aaaand went to a Nats game with our friend David. Most notably, Leila was in my livestreams, "Pardes Live," two nights in a row. The first one was called "Tax accountant answers all your questions on hedge funds and private equity firms (Pardes Live #115)." The second was called (How ultra-Orthodox Jewish dating works (Pardes Live #116)." Leila grew up with me so she knows everything about me, including my background- so she was the perfect person to talk about that stuff with me. You guys seemed to also enjoy seeing her on my livestreams, so I'm definitely hoping to have her back. I might even make a trip to NY out of it!
