knit a hat.


I went to the yarn store with Allison last night and bought Pine green yarn and needles. And now I'm going to make that hat.

I'll keep you all updated on my progress throughout this experience.

I really enjoy "A Long Way Down" by Nick Hornby. Only a few pages left. It's about a group of 4 people who met because they all went up on this rooftop with the intentions of jumping off and ending their lives. But they all started talking and didn't jump that night. It's told from each of their points of view.

Next I'm reading "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell.

Tonight is the last night for Restaurant week!

Tomorrow I have brunch with Ko, then Milk & Honey! wooo!

Sunday I FINALLY get to go to the dentist :)

I had a meeting with Keep A Breast, Spencers, and 2 other non-profits - I'm too young (www.Imtooyoungforthis.org) and Young Survival Coalition. (www.youngsurvival.org). They are both organizations focused on the lifestyle after cancer, particularly for young adults 18-39. I almost cried a few times during the meeting. not gunna lie. such inspiring people. And Spencers are amazing in their efforts and passion to help out.

So if you know anyone who is or has been affected by cancer, those are 2 amazing organizations aimed to help out cancer survivors.

Devi


Tonight Allison, Matt and I went to Devi for Restaurant Week. Indian food. It was so good. And the service was great.

Then Matt came to Trader Joes and Strand with me. I got 3 books:

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
(which I was looking for, quite loudly, and couldn't find. Went to the info guy and he said they were all upstairs in storage. I said I'd come back. Then some guy who heard me be loud about my search found it, and found me later in the bookstore and gave it to me!!!! how nice!)

A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby

and

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell because I love The Tipping Point

I started reading A Long Way Down on the subway and I'm excited for it.

Scarf update

So I've been knitting this purple scarf for over a year. It's taking forever, obviously, but I'm going to finish it tonight!!!! So close to being done. I watched a youtube video on casting off, so I'll be able to finish it for sure. so exciting.

The Killers



Tonight I went to see The Killers at Madison Square Garden with Jes. It was a good show, but some tool-y people were there. Such a weird experience for me. 1st time at an arena show. I can't believe THAT many people are into ONE band. it was sold out. thats insane!!!!

My phone takes bad pictures, but we had fantastic seats.


I also went to Tribeca Grill for lunch with Allison and Lycia. mmmm. Then we bought scratch off lotto tickets and mega million lotto tickets. We didnt win our scratch offs, but hopefully one of us will win $30 million. We'll find out Tuesday, so stay tuned. But I might not tell you if I win $30 million bucks.

I'm going to see The Killers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. Thank you fuse! I have freaking amazing seats.

Going to see Queen Killing Kings tonight at Pianos with Ko and Matt. I like them lots.

I SHOULD be getting dressed and ready for work. but I finally have some internet in my room so I'm taking advantage.

But now I'll go get dressed, re-dressed, and re-dressed once more since I can never really pick out an outfit I like.

Have an excellent day.
