// This week felt surprisingly busy! On Wednesday, my boss left on vacation for 2+ weeks and I was trying to get a lot of work done before she left so she could sign off on it. Then I had a few after-work engagements with friends and coworkers, which is unusual for me, but good, since I’m trying to be more social (remember?).

// The best thing about this week? The fact that one of my very good friends from college is moving to NYC today- yippee! I’m so excited to see her and I’m already looking forward to the adventures we’ll have in the city together.

// Last weekend involved a whole lot of doing nothing, which I like. I almost cleaned out my closet, but then I got overwhelmed so I didn’t. I’m going to try again this weekend though!

// I’ve been feeling the shopping itch really strongly recently, but I’m trying not to buy anything until after I clean out my closet so I have a better idea of what I need. I’ve only been semi-successful at holding off because I did pick up some basic tees from Everlane and these cute boots from Piperlime, but I returned the boots because they weren’t as versatile as I’d hoped.

// On Thursday, I took some of my coworkers to one of my favorite places for a cheap and delicious sit-down lunch, Qi (that’s where the picture above was taken).  I’ve been to both the Union Square and Time Square locations and I like that they’re decorated differently. The Times Square location is all about white and clear lucite furniture with a little bit of sparkle in the chandeliers, while the Union Square is a lot darker and moodier and has these cool little ships hanging down from the ceiling.

// I went to drinks with some coworkers again on Thursday.  That’s two weeks in a row- I’m on a roll! Again, it was really great to talk to them outside of a work setting and get to know them a little better. Yay for socializing- it can be a ton of fun (haha, I’m sure some of you are reading this and you’re like, “duh!“)!

// This weekend I’m looking forward to a birthday dinner for one of my friends, which will be great since I’ll get to see all of my closest NYC friends.

// I discovered this tumblr through The Cut earlier this week. Hot guys and cute kittens? Yah, you’re going to want to click through!

  • I wonder how hard it is to track down those photos of men and cats in similar poses?? hahahah. great blog.

    Glad to hear you are succeeding in your attempt to be more social!

    Also, Just finished Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour book store and I really liked like! It had that sort of quirky charm that I really enjoy – I’d freeze your head too and you’d thank me later!

    • Haha, I wondered the same thing- I give them a lot of props for doing so! So glad you enjoyed Mr. Penumbra’s- it really is such a fun book :)

    It sounds great you had a great week. I spent the last part of the week sick and I’m still recovering this weekend.

    I love the tumblr.
