In an effort to make this more timely, I’ve decided to combine the last few weeks into one post.
I moved out of my first NYC apartment. It hosted some of my closest friends, and some people I rarely talk to anymore. I look back and fail to understand how I ever fit all of my belongings into 3 car trips and one Manhattan storage space. Despite all the things that got on my nerves about it, it really true does house (haha pun!) some of the happiest moments of my senior year.
4TH OF JULY
I’m trying to decide at what age I’ll be too old enough to start hanging out with my little cousins on the 4th of July. I haven’t reached that point in my life yet, and I don’t plan on it any time soon either.
JULY 7 – ALESSO’S BIRTHDAY, GOVERNOR’S ISLAND
After living in Manhattan for 4 years, it’s kind of sad to say that I’ve never been to Governor’s Island. However, all of the was change when a few friends and myself got to attend Alesso’s birthday bash on the island. It was kind of like being trapped on a beach with very jacked and good looking people with a Manhattan sky line. Absolutely fantastic.
JULY 17. LOLO’S 89TH BIRTHDAY
My lolo (grandpa in Tagalog) turned 89 this week! I’m blessed to have him in my life and that he always refers to me as “his first apo.” This picture was taken at Ichi Umi, an all you can eat Japanese buffet in the heart of my go-to mall. After I greeted him happy birthday, he just kept telling me, “I’m still very young.” If I ever live to be in 89 years old, I’m going to out eat my grandchildren in eating sushi. And then take shots.
This week, restaurant week started and I also received my diploma – the next post will be all about food and the infamous weekly Tuesday dinners!
