While I definitely have no plans to leave NYC anytime soon, this Thought Catalog piece of “Things I’ll Miss About New York” already rings true.




“I will miss being so, so poor but somehow always feeling decadent. That’s the weird thing about New York: no one ever has any money but you always find a way to indulge. After all, we didn’t move here to feel deprived. No, we moved here because we wanted all of it, all of the time. We want all the sex, all the love, all the food, all the friends, all the nights. All the jobs, all the opportunities, all the feels, all the pain, all the ecstasy.


You take it all in here. You fill yourself up and you occasionally overdose and then maybe you leave. It’s not exactly the healthiest way to live but then again, being healthy has never been a primary focus of anyone who lives here. We can be healthy anywhere but to be here, to live in New York, you have to be a little sick.”

"That your friends have these opinions, however, does not mean that they don’t love you or value you as a friend or otherwise think you’re one of the best people they know…
We talk about our friends behind their backs… Our friends are witness to our attributes and flaws, our bad habits and good qualities, our contradictions and our contrivances.”

It’s so hard to pull quotes from a book that is full of gems. Still reading TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS one story at a time.

Social Calendar, by color

I love my girlfriends.

Email received at 10:54am:

All,

Last night was not good.  No one knew what was going on!  No one knew where to go and when and people missed out on burgers (aka Burger Club).  As you may recall, I set up a shared calendar ‘let’s be social’ several months back.  Let’s use it.  You will be receiving a new invitation to join the calendar shortly.  I have added most of the events I currently know about but please feel free to add!

Color Coding

Light Pink = an event (day or night drinking), an event that is limited to less than 24 hours

Aqua = a trip you are going on with other ppl on the shared calendar (i.e. Ali and I going to coachella)

blue = a trip you are taking outside of the group, you can put this on the cal so ppl know you are gone and sadly not available

light green = visitor in town (i.e. the Hirt fam is currently visiting)

got it?  good - there is nothing worse than someone messing up a color-coded calendar!  If you have any other categories please let me know and I will assign a color :)

Feel free to invite ppl to the calendar but lets not go crazy - a calendar with 40 ppl is less fun than a calendar with 10.

Sorry to be so bossy but someone has to step up and organize :)

Love you all!
