13. see 50 new movies: CONTINUED.
in my first week down here, i popped into a matinee of "crazy. stupid. love." by myself. ryan gosling makes everything better! i'm only at a pathetic total of 10 new movies, btw.
14. dine at 50 new restaurants: CONTINUED.
tried a sushi place near school tonight (kyoto) which was surprisingly good, stuffed my face with pulled pork, mac and cheese and fried pickles last weekend with some new friends at 4 rivers smokehouse in winter park (if any of y'all visit, remind me to take you there), and discovered a new favorite casual lunch spot in a place called crispers.
i'm at 31 new places...i'm totally going to hit 50 by december. right?!
32. try one new recipe a month: CONTINUED.
i've been turning into a domestic diva and it's even freaking me out. i made scallops with angel hair and pancetta a couple weeks ago, and i'm gettin' the fixins for chicken puttanesca tomorrow. who am i?
50. yelp about 10 places i've been: COMPLETED.
i've also been turning into a yelping freak lately, but it's fine. i love to eat so damn much that i don't know why it took me so long to get going with it. if you're on there, friend me!
58. read one book per month: CONTINUED.
finally got around to reading "talking to girls about duran duran" by my writing role model/pop culture guru rob sheffield. great summer read!
59. make my bedroom a cozy sanctuary: COMPLETED.
i guess i had to move to do it, but i feel completely cozy and relaxed in my new room (and place, for that matter). i think it's the all-over carpeting.
69. nurture a plant: COMPLETED.
bought a little palm plant for my patio (read: needs as little nurturing as possible) but i've been watering it occasionally, dammit.
77. eat breakfast daily: COMPLETED.
after not eating breakfast for probably close to 3 years, i vowed to myself i'd turn over a new leaf. thanks to my new weird grad school schedule, i've been uber-successful! i just went through a banana nut crunch phase and i'm kind of over it, though. suggestions?
