The six things I could never do without
An apartment in NYC
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'll be doing with my life a few years down the road;
what my next meal will be;
my next vacation;
Am I taking too many cabs
On a typical Friday night I am
Assuming Thursday's happy hour didn't go til the wee hours, I'm out
doing the usual dinner/bar-hopping, clubbing, etc
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
