I thought I'd just give a mini rundown of my week, for the rest of this post since I haven't posted since Monday! On Tuesday I went to a talk at the Green Space at New York's NPR station, WNYC, and listened to Brooke Gladstone talk to Andy Carvin about tweeting and The Arab Spring. I went because Alex was live tweeting it for work, but really enjoyed it and felt like I learned a lot about the power of twitter and politics. It was really interesting. Afterwards we all had a drink and I got home super late for a Tuesday night (11:00!)
Wednesday I got to leave work early since we didn't have a staff meeting and spent the time reading and commenting on my fellow classmate's essays for my personal essay writing class. Then I went to class from 7-10. I think I've decided that writing personal essays is way harder than fiction (although maybe it's just way different). And while I feel like it's really good that I'm challenging myself, this is tough stuff. I like the rapport of my class though, and commenting on other people's writing really helps when it comes time for me to look at my own and edit.
And now you're all caught up! In a little bit, I'm meeting my friend Erin for dinner and drinks and we're going to chat and catch up, which I'm excited about, and then tomorrow my friends Shina and Shannon who recently moved to Massachusetts are in town! They're going to stay the night and I can't wait to cook them dinner and set up the air mattress with clean flannel sheets for them :)
The rest of the weekend will be spent looking forward to Downton! Um, yeah, I'm barely aware that the super bowl is happening, I'm just not and never will be from a sports family. Thank God. Not that there's anything wrong with that!
What are you guys looking forward to for the rest of the week?
