I love when the weather here is warm and sunny with no clouds in the sky. Those are by far my favorite days in the city, not necessarily for walking around because it gets way too hot for that, but to sit outside and read. I spent a lot of my memorial day weekend sitting outside at Bryant Park with my book, an iced tea, my iPod, and the sunshine. So much sunshine– hello ridiculous tan-line.
I also spent a couple hours wandering Central Park, still looking for the zoo! No luck yet, but I have time. Before I leave New York I will have found the zoo and the Jackie O. reservoir. The entire park is like, 51 streets/blocks long, it stretches from 59th street to 110th street. That’s a walk. I always enter at 59th street because my subway takes me right there (it’s also right next to where I work!) and the reservoir is at like, 95th street in the middle of the park. The zoo isn’t that far from my entrance, but I go in at around 7th avenue, and the zoo is at 5th avenue (the park itself width-wide goes from8th avenue to 5th).
There is still so much I want to do, but I have been trying to spread it out so as to not do so much my first month or so here. I still have a few museums to go to, and I have yet to go to the empire state building, and I also want to go to Battery Park (you can see the statue of liberty from there).
Anyway. I found this thing on Tumblr, and I’m going to do it. It’s called the 30 Day TV Challenge and I think with my vast appreciation for television, I should be able to accomplish it. Basically, someone came up with 30 different things about TV, and each day you watch one of the things. I’m starting tonight.
Day 01– A show that should have never been canceled- Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Day 02 – A show that you wish more people were watching- How I Met Your Mother
Day 03 – Your favorite new show ( aired this t.v season)-This is a tie between Cougar Town/ Parenthood/ Modern Family/ Community/ and Glee. I’ll probably just watch one of each, I guess.
Day 04 – Your favorite show ever- Alias
Day 05 – A show you hate- This took me a while to think of because I don’t really hate that much, but I guess Pretty Wild is a really shitty show (and most reality shows on the E! Channel)
