Reasons to be Cheerful - November

  • Our first month in New York!
  • Exploring our new home & falling in love with it all over again
  • Pancakes & waffles galore (basically lots of brunch)
  • Visiting all of our favourite museums & galleries again
  • Going to the top of the Empire State Building (twice) & to the Top of the Rock (again)
  • Living in an incredible apartment in SoHo for free for a month
  • Going to a cinema where instead of seats you sit in super comfy laz-e-boy chairs
  • Finding an apartment to rent, without all the headache, in a great neighbourhood
  • Delicious mac'n'cheese from Macbar, that comes in a giant macaroni-shaped container!
  • The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
  • Brunch at Bubby's with a friend from home
  • Dough doughnuts - almost definitely the greatest doughnuts in the world!
  • Andrew's birthday & even more Dough doughnuts!
Read/Watched/Listened To/Saw/Visited:
  • Interstellar and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, part 1 - both were incredible movies! I waited an age for the latter and it was totally worth it.
  • Night School: A Low Brow Lecture Series for Pseudointellectuals at The Housing Works - a very fun & informative evening
  • Slate's Superfest East at the Music Hall of Williamsburg - this was more Andrew's thing but I didn't not enjoy it!
  • Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs at MOMA, Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire at The Met and the Dark Universe Space Show at the American Museum of Natural History - all fantastic exhibits.
  • I finished A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it - though it did take forever to read...
  • Serial - oh my! We were late to this but we caught up pretty quick. Podcasts aren't usually my thing but I really got in to this one!
To look forward to/to do in December:
  • New York City at Christmas time
  • Going to see Radio City's Christmas Spectacular
  • Moving in to our apartment
  • Doing all the things on My Festive To Do List
  • Christmas!! (obviously)
