Tag Archives: Graduation

my inner goddess says ‘oh my’

I realized that I never posted any of my statue of liberty pictures. The shame.

Or my graduation. Double shame.

My current playlist titled “July 2012”, for obvious reasons, is as follows:

It’s Time – Imagine Dragons
Ho Hey – The Lumineers
Little Talks – Of Monsters and Men
Even if it Breaks a Heart – Eli Young Band
Give Your Heart a Break – Demi Lovato
As Long as You Love Me – Justin Bieber
Above the Water – Rocky Votolato
Take a Walk (The M Machine Remix) – Passion Pit
Lost in My Mind – The Head and the Heart
Gold on the Ceiling – The Black Keys
Hold On – Alabama Shakes

…yes I am an equal opportunity employer.

Current Dislikes:
– The winner of Design Star
– The fact that I’m reading Fifty Shades of Grey

Oh and this…

Worlds most random post? Perhaps. But I’m sure I’ll outdo myself in the future.

Hooray, I’ve finally graduated!

However, I’m channeling a snail with my vacation posts, so I’m a little behind.

Today I’d like to discuss the awesomeness that is Central Park. Not only does this park make me think of Kevin McCallister running away from burglars and befriending a bird lady, it also reminds me that crazy New Yorkers dig nature too.

Yes, it is beautiful.

Yes, it is a fun place to frolic.

Yes, it has a castle in it.

We spent our time gawking at the turtles in Turtle Pond (how did they ever come up with that name?), touring the magnificent castle where I pretended to be a Disney princess, and getting lost on our way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art a.k.a. hell on earth.

Why would I say such a horrible thing about this world-renowned museum? I’ll tell you why:

1) As I mentioned in a previous post, I wore cowboy boots this day so my feet were wondering when I was going to succumb to the pain and just rip them off.
2) I propose a re-name of The Met to The Labyrinth. Every time we’d walk into a different section we wondered if we were actually going the right way. Somehow we’d keep going right, logic would say this results in a circle, however, we never ended up in the same room we started. We missed entire sections of the museum due to its shotty layout. I also propose implementing arrows on the ground like Ikea does or perhaps a yellow brick road.
3) There needs to be more food and drink! I seriously felt like I was back at Warped Tour 2003, in the blazing heat with no water and scrounging for dolla dolla bills on the ground in order to hydrate. Except in the Met there is only one area that I found where people could up their blood sugar. I felt like Jesus in the desert…Lent style.
4) If you advertise Degas there better be some fucking ballerinas.

This is how I felt when I realized we were only half way through the first floor of this ginormous museum.

Here are some of the exhibits we actually saw luckily going right got us somewhere, sometimes…


and the obligatory cupcake…
