This summer has been one of the busiest and most fun I've ever had. (And not going to lie, also the most tiring.) Here's what I crossed off my list!
✓ Travel outside the country • Two words: Dublin, Ireland. One of the most amazing experiences of my life was seeing the Cliffs of Moher.
✓ Plan a weekend getaway with friends • Alexa, Kelly and I planned a weekend together in Cape Cod, MA. It was so much fun, all too brief and I can't wait to do it again.
list • This only gets half a check mark because I went to one of these places, Duke Farms. But I already have plans with my cousins to check out more next month!
✓ Go to a musical • I finally saw An American in Paris and honestly, I don't know why it took me so long to watch it. I mean the title alone makes it obvious that it's right up my alley.
✓ Try 5 new ice cream places in NYC • This gets a big fat checkmark from me. I ended up trying 9 different places because I'm obsessed.
✓ Go to a museum • I went to the MoMA to see the Edgar Degas exhibit with Carina plus Alexa and I checked out the Women Artists in Fantasy & Science Fiction exhibit at the Society of Illustrators and the Museum of Ice Cream.
✓ Go to a food festival • Carina and I went to the Queens International Night Market. It was a bit of a trek for us but totally worth it.
✓ Binge a new TV show • Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Stranger Things and Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
✓ Do one thing outside my comfort zone • I purposely keep work and my personal life a bit separate so I usually don't hang out with coworkers outside the office. But when the few of the ladies in my department talked about getting massages after work one day, I couldn't pass it up. It was a lot of fun and super relaxing. And secondly, a bachelorette party I attended recently.
10 1/2 out of 13! Not too bad right?
How was your summer?
