~ I think it’s time to put together a summer bucket list. Every other post out there seems to include one. Am I failing as a NY tourist/blogger? I just may include some things I’ve already done and hope I accomplish the rest in the next month and a half in the city.
~ Do you think there are people who live for Mondays? It seems everyone lives for the weekend, ecstatic that it’s Friday, but I rarely hear people say “oh I’m so glad it’s Monday” or “Tuesdays are just a breath of fresh air”.
~ Realizing I still come into work way too early. The normal hours are 8:30-5:30 but of course I’m the only one who has the bad habit of waking up early and getting to the office. I guess it will pay off in the long run. 😉
~ Attempting to live it up in the city midweek with a trip to Little Italy. Only my friends and I were too indecisive/hungry to really research restaurants. Of course I selected the worst possible option – the pizza looks somewhat appealing but was definitely stiff as a board. Also, who plays dubstep dance music in an Italian restaurant? That might have been a warning sign…
~ Having the unique opportunity to live with one of my favorite sorority sisters (below on the left) for the summer. Sam has an art internship in the city and is crashing at my place for the next few weeks! We also met up with a fellow Theta in the city, who I met on LinkedIn. Just making use of those networking skills!
~ I’m usually the type of person who can never say no to something sweet. Unless it’s ice cream in 90F humidity at 8:30PM. Yeah, no. But who could pass up fresh fruit pops from People’s Pops?
This shop located in the east village, just down from Big Gay Ice Cream (where the line is usually around the corner for overpriced, yet scrumptious cones). I went for the strawberry & blueberry Popsicle ($3.50/pop) and did not regret it. All the goods are made with local grown fruits and herbs so there is no hint of added preservatives or syrups.
