Where am I living and what do I do for fun: “New York City runs on the blood of young people.” Stephanie Danler (my favorite author at the moment) said this at a question and answer event at The Stand Bookstore which I attended this month, and honestly this statement has resonated so much with me this summer. I am originally from outside of NYC so I’m not a stranger to the city, but living here by myself this summer has definitely opened my eyes a lot more to the city and what it has to offer. I’ve been going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art a ton (my favorite) and also the Whitney Museum.
What restaurants am I enjoying: My favorite food is Italian so I’ve also been eating my weight in pasta (but I’m walking a lot so it’s okay right??) There’s just so much energy in the city and always something going on; I’ve been to a few concerts, as well as some book signings. Brunch is also a culture thing here and so that’s been a huge part of my weekends! Madison Setness and I actually got brunch a few weekends ago and it was awesome to meet another Captain in the city! NYC is truly the city that never sleeps and it’s been an incredible summer but I definitely miss CNU a lot and can’t wait to be back lounging on the Great Lawn with friends!
