Back on the face of the planet

So I had to fall off the face of the planet for a bit to study for the CPA and it's nice to climb back on. I had quite a lovely weekend-I just LOVE the weekend. I never realized how much until full time employment came around.

Friday night I went to a dinner party. My wonderful friend Jen cooked us all dinner and it was so yummy!! I've decided that I need to start cooking more-at least once or twice a month. Sad that it has come to that. I think I've eaten more cereal dinners since moving here than I did in college.

Saturday we went to brunch at Schiller's Liquor Bar down on the lower East side. It was really good! I don't think I'm much of a fan of the LES though. 1-It's like a million miles away from us and takes ages to get down there and 2-it's super dirty and gross down there. Unfortunately a lot of the good restaurants are down there, so I guess it's worth the trip.

Saturday afternoon I went to the Sotheby's auction display! I think that may be one of my favorite things I have done in the city. The coming auction is entitled Magnificent Jewels and it features all kinds of amazing jewelry! It was like being a museum-except better because you could actually touch and try on the jewelry! I loved it!! I also went and saw "How to Train Your Dragon." I LOVED it! Such a cute movie-definitely recommend it to everyone to see! I ended the evening with a trip to Korea Town to do kareoke for a friend's birthday. It was quite the experience and so much fun!

It was a wonderful weekend and I'm so excited to not have to study for at least another 2 months! Yay!

...how it was 90 degrees today. IN APRIL.

...and remember how I had to be inside ALL day doing "virtual training"
...and remember how it's supposed to be the nicest for the next week?...and how I have to study for the CPA so I can't go out and enjoy it...

8 days until I take my last CPA (hopefully) and can have some kind of life again! Pray that I study hard enough to pass!!
