I started my second day in the city with a lazy and late breakfast at Blue Dog Cafe and from there ran to Bed Bath and Beyond (again) and the drugstore. Came home and immediately hopped in the shower and realized the drain was not functioning at its highest capacity. Gross. Got out as quickly as possible and spent the next couple hours with the A/C on full blast, slowly getting ready for my afternoon meeting. (Oh and waited for the UPS guy who delivered my Vitamix - holla!) Walked to meeting and arrived sweaty, but the meeting nonetheless went well. Walked home and cursed my stupid decision not to bring flats. Came home, changed, and immediately went out to Whole Foods, which is, like many other fun spots, mere minutes away from my apartment. Got smoothie ingredients and a bar of dark chocolate w/ almonds and cherries (YUM). Came home, whipped up smoothie, chatted w/ Roomie #2 (there are 3!), and proceeded to majorly veg out on my sad, sad bed with no blanket and only one pillow.
As I laid in bed, watching the latest episodes of The City and The Hills, I wondered what other NYC-ers were doing. Does anyone here have a night at home? I have this perception that everyone is constantly out and about, for every meal, every evening, every weekend. (I have no idea how they afford that btw. My bfast was NOT cheap.) I have no firm plans for tomorrow either, but I plan to do some job hunting work and then take a very long (and inevitably sweaty) walk around the city.
As for le weekend, I have plans for a vegan brunch at The Organic Grill in the East Village and hitting up the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn on Saturday, all avec a new friend who sounds super fun (we haven't actually met yet). More brunch plans for Sunday and then getting down to business on Monday. I have to treat this job hunt like, well, a job or else I'll get lost walking the streets of Manhattan. Here's to being productive!
