SELF PORTRAIT THURSDAY!
I spent yesterday at the beach with Carly and Kristin, who is a new friend and is the newest stylist at Seagull. We spent time just hanging out at the boardwalk at the Rockaways. Drinking beer, playing cards. Walking around. Sitting up in the lifeguard chairs after the lifeguards had left.
On my way home I wondered if that was the last time I was going to the beach this summer. I’ve enjoyed my time at the beach this year because it’s so relaxing. Every summer I’ve spent in NYC has always been really stressful and I’ve always been really broke. Rarely would I have time to relax. But this year is different.
It’s been a good summer.
Tomorrow we are leaving to DC for the weekend. My friend Renee is getting married. It’s her first wedding and my first time going to a wedding. I’m a bit nervous because I don’t know what to expect. Sounds silly, but I get nervous about random things. Going shopping tonight for some nice clothes for the occasion.
I’ll be happy to see Renee get married. We used to be in a band together called Ladies Who Lunch. I don’t really have many pictures of us together. Here’s us at our first show we played back in Texas. Wish I had more…
I like all the little trips I’ve been making out of the city the past couple months. I was just telling Ben that it is nice to leave the city and come back to it. Seeing the skyline disappear in the distance and watching it reappear is really good for the mind. Helps put things into perspective.
That thought reminds me of being in Montauk. The cabin we had rented was on the beach, and you could just look out into the distance. It really did something to my mind being able to see that far out. Instead of seeing just the back of some other building, I could look out to the horizon.
It does something for your eyes physically but also does something for your brain psychically.
