New York, Again.

So, last week, I:

  • turned 25 (the fact that I’m even 25 is atrocious. Seriously, where my quarter-life crisis at!)
  • survived a polar vortex
  • saw my favorite band play my favorite song which also happens to be on my favorite album (answers: Neutral Milk Hotel, “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea)
  • visited my favorite city, New York, and was reminded yet again why this city remains my fave.

I miss museums a lot — or I guess, the easy accessibility of art museums. Meanwhile, over in SF, we won’t even have a MoMA again until 2016. :(

The Samsung Galaxy Studio Pop-Up in Soho might just be the only place on earth that allows you to design T-shirts, takes ridiculous selfies of you jumping around in photobooths, serves you Sprinkles cupcakes and Illy coffee, redeem points for prizes, drool over all the Samsung swag — for free. Get on that, New Yorkers.

And because no trip to NY would be complete without the presence of good food:

  1. I am DROOLING over every single picture of food here. It doesn’t help that I’m hungry at the moment. AHHH everything looks so delicious! Looks like you visited a lot of amazing spots.

  2. I just CANNOT wait to go back. CANNOT. And oooh, the artworks that stood out to you were also ones I took note of and still remember having paid attention to! Also — what happened to SF Moma?!! I loved that place!
