By popular demand (aka my friend Kathleen of Los Angeles requested it), I’m giving you guys a little glimpse into my day-to-day life in New York City! On Friday I filmed some moments and below the video, I’ve got a little write-up with some more detail. I honestly don’t feel like daily life is much different here than anywhere else, but looking through a lens (literally and figuratively!) definitely made me notice the more special things.
5:45 a.m.: Wake up with the sun. Spend some time in the Word (you’ll notice my one-year bible is turning into more of a one-and-a-half year bible, but I’m actually very OK with that. I’d rather take my time and soak it all in than rush through it.) Get ready. Eat a little breakfast. Out the door by 7:15!
7:45 a.m.: Take the scenic route and walk through Washington Square, as I often do. When the weather’s not as nice, I make a transfer or two to end up closer to my office.
8 a.m.-12 p.m.: Work work work. I make my lunches at home and eat at my desk so I can take advantage of the full hour I get for a break.
12 p.m.-1 p.m.: Lunch break! Reading in Washington Square (it is my favorite park, after all.)
1 p.m.-5 p.m.: Work work work.
5 p.m.: I’m a “leave the office right at 5” kind of girl, but most New Yorkers don’t have that luxury, so I spend a lot of evenings killing time on my own before evening plans. On Friday this entails more reading, this time in Union Square.
7:30 p.m.: Dinner with my lovely friend Katie! We have some church things to discuss and decided that was best done over guac (as most things in life are). We go to Tortaria – my first time there and I have nothing but high praise! I also have a pulled-pork torta.
8:30 p.m.: Take the scenic route back to the train – the same station where the day began.
9:15 p.m.: Back in my Brooklyn apartment! It’s a quiet and early night – I’m asleep by 10:30.
I hope you all enjoyed this little glimpse into my life! Feel free to let me know if you ever have any requests for what you’d like to see on here!
