i’m quite pleased with how the next few days are shaping up.  today, i barely have any classes, and then i’m headed up to brunswick to spend some time with one of my best friends! i’m feeling an adventure in my bones.

friday renders NO CLASSES.  so i’ll be able to sleep in, make some macaroons, and maybe even get some food blogging done.  i’m sure i’ll also be seeing sammy blue eyes.  the weekend is rather typical- working brunches, and house-sitting for once.   i may even decide to tackle the task of making bagels.  i’m thinking i will.  also, i’ll be hardcore prepping for a very important discussion i’ll be leading on monday- wish me luck please!

i can’t wait for the warm weather to come back, so i can stick my head out of car windows and watch the world whizzing by me.  the grill off will also take place when it’s sunny out, so please mister SUN, come out come out wherever you are!

tonight’s been full of nice things.  a bit of capote, and a full stomach of the shoyu ramen from pai men miyake.  homemade vietnamese iced coffee has definitely perked me up.  a two and a half hour nap was also wonderful if you don’t mind me saying.  Young the Giant has been makin’ me smile all day long too- so check em, bros.

arabian nights

sorry for my prolonged absence.  i know that i updated once when i was in MTL, but it’s been a while since I’ve done a typical post.  and i’m afraid i won’t be doing one tonight, because it’s 12:30am, and I need to sleep a bit before my vacation officially ends at 6.5 hours from now.

it seems as though every year school vacations become less of a vacation and more work/business than anything else.  this vacation proved to be just that- for there wasn’t a single day where I actually was able to sleep past 8am, and honestly, that was the one thing I could have used.  my visit to montreal was really great- I enjoyed my time with Lily and Isabel, and ate some very delicious food, which is slowly, but surely appearing over at vin et grub.  besides that i just had a bunch of errands to do, and then my weekend consisted of basically work and coffee and revising an essay which didn’t take me too long to do.

this upcoming week however marks the start of restaurant week- which i’m excited about just because it gives me an excuse to go out to dinner as frequently as I want to places I typically don’t visit.  I’ll be making my maiden voyage to Bresca Saturday evening after work with the lovely A, and then traveling to District on Sunday with sammy blue eyes.  tuesday i have a brunch meeting, and a SATs hardcore study session.  I also need to make room to clean, because my bedroom is trashed, and it needs to be reorganized.  I’ll be frank and tell you I’m not ready to go back to school.  this week is going to pass by very slowly, and if I could just have one more day off, I’d be the happiest camper in the world.  too bad that’s not going to happen.

i’ll leave you with some music i’ve been jamming out to recently, and i promise that i’ll begin regular posts soon!

i’m a new soul

this winter is getting more difficult to survive for reasons out of my control.  first and foremost, i absolutely despise the cold temperatures, and they always just effect me negatively because i want to find a little corner and huddle there with about a billion blankets on top of me.  the second reason has to do with the cold temperatures- once february hits, it seems like the snow is gone, and instead we’re plagued with ice.  i can’t tell you how much i hate ice.  for one, it’s so dangerous, and also it’s just not user friendly.  i always get this anxious pit in my stomach when i’m walking on ice, and i just don’t like it.  but i don’t want to bore you with why i’m having a difficult time this winter, instead i’d rather tell  you what i’m doing to busy myself in this lonely period of the year.

break starts friday at 2pm, thankfully.  it’s not so much that i need it like i need christmas break, but instead, it’s just some time to actually go do stuff that i need to do, and that i’m genuinely excited about.  first and foremost, there’s a food/fashion blogger happy hour at my place of work, and i’m very excited to meet with a few folks- kate from the blueberry files, and so on, and immediately after that, i think i’m going to spend some quality time with samuel, because i won’t see him for a good amount of time from saturday onward.  then the weekend boasts a dinner with marlowe at the noodle bar, working both brunches, and driving down to bos late sunday so i can wake up early to leave the country.

don’t worry, i seriously haven’t been keeping anything too big from you guys- it’s not like i’m leaving for turkey or something crazy like that.  just a friendly visit to our northern neighbor- canada.  no, it’s not going to be a drinking fest, but rather a visit at two possible schools i’m looking at, and a reunion with a pretty cool friend.   i’ll be in montreal for 3 days, then i’ll stay another night in boston to see two of my aunts for dinner, and also to crash so i don’t have to get home ridiculously late wednesday night.  the rest of the week is really unclear, because i’m left with four days to do more than i think is possible to squeeze into 96 hours.  sugarloaf, bela dear, have a jersey shore party, spend some quality time with A & samuel, work two+ shifts, oh, and sleep? maybe it’s all possible, but then again, i could just have a case of being unrealistic.

in other news, restaurant week is rapidly approaching- that’s right, it’s my favorite time of year again.  i have four reservations thus far, and the list can only keep growing if you look at it from my view.  first is my maiden voyage to bresca (can’t say that i’ve ever been more excited about a restaurant visit), next comes a trip to district with mere, and then a trip to vignola with nellie, and finally the eve of my SATs boasts a wonderful meal at bar lola with mr. I.  i think i’ll also be visiting hugo’s on a tuesday for their half of blind tasting menu, and then of course one night i’ll go somewhere with sam, maybe local or sonny’s. so i guess you can say that i’m consciously trying to make things look on the bright side, and it’s working for the most part.  primarily what kills me is the cold wind when i walk outside.  that makes me forget what i have to look forward to and instead makes me spiteful.  don’t worry, i’m trying to work on it though.
