With the exception of school on Friday morning, my weekend felt like it started on Thursday. Since I really should stop procrastinating and just get started on my homework, here’s a quick list on what I did this weekend:
- Took my aunt and cousin Andrew on a quick food tour of my favorite places to eat around Union Square: Artichoke and the milk bar.
- Visited Ground Zero on Thursday. It was already a media frenzy!
- Went to Shake Shack at Madison Square Park with Andrew and Eric for the first time in over a year. So yummy!
- Partied it up at Fashion’s Night Out in SoHo with Tasha and Andrew. I can’t believe that there were just endless free drinks everywhere. And food. And live music. It was so much fun! The crowds were crazy. I hadn’t seen so many people in SoHo ever. It felt like New Years Eve but even better because of the free alcohol!
- Met up with Alberto and Heidi when the night was winding down. Made a midnight stop at Artichoke.
- On Friday, after a lot of (un)necessary drama, Andrew and I went to see Fuerza Bruta with Alberto, Heidi and Stefan. This was the fifth or sixth time I saw the show (I’m guessing it is the 5th more than the 6th) and it is always a blast.
- Saturday: Lit Crawl NYC! I had no idea that this event was going on up until Alberto invited me to go along. We went to three different readings last night, and ended it with a trip to Pinkberry.
Fuerza Bruta is wet, wild, and interactive!
Unfortunately for me, I’ve been putting off homework all week so now I have to catch up on everything before tomorrow morning. Back to work…
I think it’s some kind of wonderful to be able to talk to a group of people about everything and anything. There is nothing embarrassing. The horror stories of the past have suddenly become comical. All insecurities are laid out in the open. Exposed, embraced.
There’s no holding back, and as time slips by tongues loosen. The conversation wavers from silly and immature to deep and impacting.
The tea pot’s been drained, but there’s hardly a lull in conversation. It’s only when the eyes start to droop that one must take a stand before another interesting turn in conversation.
The need of sleep finally wins over the need to chat. But not before another is planned in the near future.
I’ve been celebrating my birthday all weekend long with family and friends. It’s been fun. Highlight of the weekend: an amazing dinner at Gotham Bar and Grill near Union Square. I can’t get rid of the sinful white chocolate ice cream sandwich with banana caramel sauce out of my mind. Other birthday activities included: brunching, shopping, hanging out past midnight…
