FROM THE SECOND WEEK OF MAY
1. The gym is intimidating…
I’ve only been finding myself going to it this week because it’s been raining outside. I tried to figure out how to use some of the weight contraptions and i felt like i was playing a game of stand-up Twister with a large metal machine. I found a real beginners guide to gym equipment that might help those of you who hardly go to the gym – and when you do, find yourself having staring contests with these machines.
2. Reader question of the week:
I want to travel more – but i don’t know where to go! Reply in the comment section below – or send me a tweet – with the one destination you desperately want to travel to.
3. Poem of the week is about who NYC really belongs to…
4. HAIM (The Band)
I went to see them live last weekend and it was the best concert i’ve seen in a while. These girls can really ROCK. Check out their full concert on YouTube.
5. Edible Instagram pictures?
Meet Boomf: a company that takes your Instagram pictures and puts them on marshmallows! It’s a real thing because i ordered a box of them for someone special. Except when i ordered them, i put the wrong address – so the company mailed 9 Instagram pictures on marshmallows to one very lucky – and confused – stranger in this world. When i admitted my mistake – they said no problem and shipped a brand new box (at no cost) to the right person. That’s customer service anyone can appreciate.

7. I have the entire NY Public Library in my apartment…
That’s a little bit of an exaggeration – but i have 22 checked out books and they have covered every inch of my tiny bedroom. I’m currently reading ‘Love in the Time of Cholera‘.
