It’s Wednesday morning and it’s raining outside and I’m sitting at the cutest little coffee shop that apparently nobody knows about because it’s empty and perfect. I just wanted to write a few things about my time here in New York.. stories that I haven’t told on here but that I really want to share.
- The pizza. I swear the pizza in New York is just the BEST. Like, it feels like I’m in Italy. Also a fun little story for you.. in my first week here, I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge to this pizza place that my friend and I went to the last time that we were in New York, and apparently they don’t sell individual slices, which I thought was okay because I think I ate an entire pizza by myself last time (#sorrynotsorry), and so I just ordered myself a small pizza to go. When the pizza came.. First of all it was HUGE. Like, their small could feed a small army, and second of all, the lady gave me five paper plates to go because she assumed that I was sharing and then I just went and ate the entire thing by myself and it was hilariously sad.
- SoulCycle – I had the best SoulCycle class I’ve ever taken last night, and I can’t wait to get back on the bike tomorrow. I took a class with at the recently re-opened TriBeCa studio, and let me tell you…. it was INSANELY DIFFICULT. Like, my hands got prune-y halfway through because I was sweating so much. First of all, riding along to Beyonce’s song “Flawless” with the teacher chanting “Bow down bitches!” at the front was honestly one of those soul-enriching moments of my life. And then he sang “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” to us, which was something that I never thought would happen in an exercise class. And on a side note, their new gear came out and I LOVE EVERYTHING. Like, I wouldn’t be surprised if you see me walking down the street with SoulCycle New York workout capris and a bright pink SoulCycle tank on….
- Taylor Swift lives here. And if you know me, you know how exciting that is. I could run into her at any moment!
- They aren’t kidding when they say that New Yorkers are ruder than the majority of the population. But that being said, I have met so many wonderful people who hold special places in my heart. However, no worries, the stressed out and snippy people just make me want to be nicer to everybody.
- I don’t like the Subway, so I try to walk everywhere. It’s good exercise as well as a good way to see the city. Also, I either listen to Shake It Off on repeat while walking down the street, or to Grace Helbig’s or Tyler Oakley’s podcasts.
And that’s it. Time to face the rain and head out. Happy Wednesday!
