A very Viennese brunch at Cafe Sabarsky
As the days grow shorter and the holidays creep closer, things have a pleasant tendency to slow down. Days that were previously filled with conference calls and last-minute exam prep are now focused on seemingly important matters such as the logistics of mulled wine and the appropriate amount of layers to wear while window-shopping down 5th Avenue. It's a season of chilly bliss and acceptable over-consumption of all things merry and bright.
You may remember that I was planning on studying abroad during the past fall semester. Well, due to previously mentioned unforeseen circumstances regarding my mother’s health, I held off on London. Now I am happy to say that I will actually be heading ‘across the pond’ for spring term, come January 2015! Massively excited. Also as it draws nearer, increasingly nervous about moving (albeit just for a short term) to a place where I don’t know more than a handful of people. But hey, hopefully that lack of even having an existing comfort zone will help create an even more enriching experience.
I’d better make friends quickly though, because I have a long list of weekend trips I’m dying to take (Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Berlin… It’s a long list.). I’m not too worried- they say the best weekend trips are the result of serendipity and spontaneity!
Two of my favorite things: the viennese coffee scoops at 'Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream' down on Rivington, and my new Louis Vuitton bag (curtesy of the best boss ever!).
Being a dork in my massive pink sweater at another laugh-out-loud, stomach-cramping 'Hello Giggles' show at the UCB Theater East. The show was hosted by the (almost annoyingly) talented Ruby Karp and featured my celeb crush du jour Brooks Wheelan. *swoon*
Because you're never too old to play with arts and crafts at work.
