On a typical Friday night I am
Since i leave work at 430 on Fridays, there is the typical mad dash to go spend my paycheck as quickly as possible. Ill usually walk around midtown, pick up a bottle of vino, something to wear that night, find a great Happy hour , or walk around MoMa or the Whitney. I love the feeling of new found freedom that comes every Friday. After that dinner and drinks are almost always in order. Later on it always varies...I am equally happy at home as i am out on the town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a bit of a pack-rat. I hate throwing things away. Note I said pack-rat. Not hoarder.
