But things aren't normal. I got engaged 3 days ago. I got a puppy 9 days ago. Today, I sent in an application for a duplex 2-bedroom apartment in Washington that costs less than half of our rent in Greenpoint. Then I had two phone interviews for potential freelance work. It's all very overwhelming and frankly kind of exhausting. But more importantly, it's pretty exciting.
But before I move into the next phase toward rural life, there are a few things I need to do to wrap things up here nicely. Thus, an NYC bucket list:
- Visit the cloisters
- Go to a Nets game
- See the old City Hall subway stop
- Watch a movie at the Loewe's theater in NJ
- Eat dinner at Eleven Madison Park
- Try Lombardi's pizza
- See Once on Broadway
- Gorge at Dinosaur BBQ
Last night, two other items were drunkenly added to the list:
- Steal the "T" from the Black Rabbit sign
- Crash a wedding at the Polonaise.
I'm guessing we won't get to most of these. I bet we will not do the last two.
But the good news is, this past week we knocked off two other items: go to Yankee Stadium during opening week and head upstate to zipline at Hunter Mountain.
It's gonna be quite a ride. Here we go!
