- love being outside
- can't leave NY-- life elsewhere is too monochromatic
- looking for a fun surfing/biking vacation in March

The six things I could never do without
Why 6 and not 5 or 50? Now I'm pressured to choose only 6... Fine. I will play by your rules, but don't expect this list to remain stagnant. Check back for updates.

1. Family
2. Friends
3. Working feet for running/walking
4. Travel
5. IPhone- I totally resent this, but alas it's true
6. coffee,wine,cheese
7. Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where I'll go when the American economy fails.

How much more I could accomplish if there were 30 hrs in the day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinners out with friends, movies, bars, over the club scene
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know when it's appropriate to use commas, semi colons, apostrophes.

I am an absolute failure with technology.
