it’s violently cold this week and here we are dealing with a miserable snowstorm sweepin the northeast and NORMALLY i LOVE this kind of thing. snow day, playin hooky, binge watching something on Netflix (in my case, Black Mirror) and most importantly SPIKING YOUR COFFEE!
UNLESSSSSSSSSSSSS YOU HATE HAPPINESS AND JOY AND ARE A HUGE MASOCHIST LIKE I AM BECAUSE I MADE A DUMB DECISION AND SIGNED UP FOR SOBER JANUARY. WHY. WHY DID I DO THAT. WHY IN GODS NAME.
I’m sorry I’m yelling.
it’s true though. i did – i decided to participate in sober January and to make matters worse we put a major bet on the entire experience and lets just say, a trip i want to take is on the line. so i don’t care what kind of withdrawals i go through, i’m goin on that trip friends!
in all honesty i spent the last couple months of 2017 (Q4 for those business-minded folks) doing whatever the hell i wanted because i just felt like it, ya know? i didn’t hurt anybody or anything except my liver and my bank account. and now its time to revive the two. and maybe go back to the gym, oh…ever. this is me walking through the doorway of my sad life without a glass of wine at the end of the day. HAHAH god i’m so dramatic today! alright just so i touch on the whole point of the post, i recently found a part of NYC that’s relatively new and AMAZING and if you live in or plan to visit NYC anytime soon, this is pretty cool.
located underneath Columbus Circle (you actually have to go into the Columbus Circle subway station to find this place) is a massive…food court? mini-mall? I’m not sure what you’d call it. but it’s this long corridor of different local foods and restaurants and shops. they only allowed a couple major companies to come in (Starbucks, Sephora, Warby Parker…maybe one or two more) but the rest are all local NYC vendors and small businesses. it’s so cute! and the perfect getaway from the cold!
you think i didn’t stop at the Doughnuttery? cinnamon sugar. buy them out. every one they have. freeze em. save em for a rainy day. or a snowy day when you’re dumb and hungover because of a lousy bet you made. or just a random tuesday.
also, can we talk about this sign?? haha! immature, sure, but i’m only in my 20s a couple more months, i’m soakin it up.i think i’ll make it, but will complain the WHOLE time because i’m insufferable. in fact, i just made tea and poured it in a wine glass hoping this tricks my mind into thinking I’m drinking something else but i’m just not and nobodys falling for it, not even my mind. i think i’m losing it. also, how does one go on a sober date? not to be confused with the question of “how does one go on a date, sober” because you should always arrive sober but like – what kind of date is a good one when you aren’t drinking?
bowling? arcade? don’t say movies cause goddddd no. fondue? help!
love you all. hope i make it through the month. #thoughtsandprayers
I love LA so unbelievably much, like i wish in my heart that I could be bicoastal. That’s kind of my life goal – to be able to go back and forth from LA to NYC whenever I want but here i am without a dollar in savings acting like i’m rolling in money. I do realize that a big reason I may love LA is that I get to leave (kind of my feelings on parenthood?) but the proximity to the ocean, the ability to go hiking whenever, the great food, the sunshine – it’s definitely my second favorite city (such a New York thing to say). I’m a little bit of a brat when it comes to my travel and i’ve gotten to the place in life where if I don’t get out to LA every 6 months, I pretty much lose my mind. SO NEEDLESS TO SAY, I have plenty of tips for you!
i used to go to Atlanta all the time for work and everytime i FREAKING loved it – wow what a great city!! so many great things to do, so many cultural activities, a true personality that’s palpable of the city – plus, AMAZING FOOD. basically the only thing that matters to me 🙂 when i had the chance to go back last weekend, i jumped at it. i’ve said many times that if i left NYC, i’d definitely consider Atlanta as my next home base. you’d love it too i’m sure.
