Whale & Wishful Thinking

Whale, hello there. (too much?) 

After a relatively quiet week as far as any social channels are concerned, here's what's been taking up some brain space for the last seven days. 

1. Planners

You guys, I just ordered a planner. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm hoping it makes me into an all around better and less stressed human being. When I was in college, I used to stay organized solely using my laptop calendar, but now that I'm "adulting," it's a little more complicated. Currently, I have all my plans scattered across my work calendar, my phone calendar, my home calendar and my mind palace, and somehow they're all never in sync. So, I'm taking a page out of the good old high school handbook (#mandatoryplanners) and bringing my schedule back to never fail pen and paper. 

As a bonus, whenever I use my new planner I plan to sing (in my mind or out loud) "planning for the future, see him now as he stands on the bow of a ship heading for a new land..." Spontaneous Hamilton outbursts are my life.

2. The Sold Out Museum of Ice Cream

This is why I need a planner, people. The pop up museum dedicated to everyone's favorite frozen treat (get out of here, snow cone lovers) is for real 100% sold out. It officially opened today, complete with edible balloons and a chocolate room. It will be in New York's meatpacking district for just over a month. 

Seriously though, who are these people who are crazy on top of their ice cream museum ticket game? -- I only dream to be that good with my schedule. I guess, for now, I'll just have to enjoy my ice cream minus a pool full of sprinkles.

3. Creative Projects

Sadly, I haven't been feeling very inspired as of late (see my recent 11 day Instagram lull for proof). A lack of inspiration is borderline unacceptable when you live in New York, so I've been making a list of creativity sparking activities -- visiting Blick and learning new skills are at the top of that list. My awesome friend Alyssa recently gave a quick class at work on how to make animated gifs using photoshop, and it was seriously the coolest thing I've seen in a while. TBD on what my new project will be, but I'll keep you posted. 

4. This Weekend

Weekend adventures are always top of mind as I approach Friday. This weekend's plans include a double dose of brunch (I mean who are you talking to?) and some Astoria adventuring. Both Saturday and Sunday, my friends have committed to making the long trek to Queens from other boroughs just for me! It's extra exciting because my Saturday brunch is with Alana who I haven't seen since this little adventure
