This past weekend was Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Since no one wants to hear about my family dinner or my Nana's latest shenanigans courtesy of her Alzheimer's and Dementia, I will spare you.
Because this year will be full of many firsts and lasts for me, I got to making a to-do list of things that I need to do/accomplish before I move. Some of them are easy, others not so much. I figured I'd share them with my blog readers.
*Buy an I <3 NY Shirt
Totally cheesy and touristy but I do like the I <3 NY logo and I figure it will be a nice thing to have once I'm not actually living in NY any more.
*Go ice skating in Wollman Rink or Bryant Park at least once.
Off the ice, I have the grace and composure of a blind elephant on ice, so just picture what I must be like strapped to two very thin blades. For this very reason I have avoided going ice skating at all costs. However, it is a very New York thing to do and I know that I will regret it later on if I don't do this at least once in my life.
*Learn how to drive.
Don't laugh. I lived in Manhattan from ages 7-25 and never had any reason to learn how to drive. I finally got a learners' permit when I turned 20 so that I would have a legal id to go out with when I turned 21. My learners' permit expired when I turned 25. I have yet to renew it.
*Go see at least one more Broadway show that isn't Phantom of the Opera.
I would love, love, love to see Wicked, Mary Poppins, or the Little Mermaid.
*Try every cupcake flavor at Crumbs at least once.
The Urban Whisk, B is for Brown, and Preppy Coastee, want to help me with this one?
*Attend a Fashion Week show.
I have wanted to do this for years but have not been proactive at all about it or done anything to actually attend a show. I don't know anyone who works in the industry, so I don't actually know how I would do this, but I would really like to attend a show. Any show. If any one reading this can get me in to a Spring show, please take pity on me. I will give you major blog love if you do.
*Attend a Yankees game in the new stadium.
Raise your hand if you'd like to go with me.
I have always loved studying foreign languages and won an award in high school for being the only person in my grade to study three foreign languages (French, Italian, and Greek). (In an ironic twist of fate, my high school actually offered German and the German teacher asked if I'd be interested in taking her class and I said no because I did not see myself ever needing to know a single word of German. Who's laughing now?) One of the things that I think is really cool about me is the fact that I am bilingual, and I would love to be able to know at least some conversational German so I'm not a total fish out of water when I get there.
*Get at least one more ASA letter shirt.
(preferably with Lilly Pulitzer letters)
Who cares if I won't have any chapter meetings, recruitment events, etc. to wear it to? I can wear it around the house to play Wii and skype KMH and KMB.
**List will be updated progressively throughout the year.**
