My self-summary
In the past couple of months, I attended my friend's wedding down in Brooklyn at which the DJ was convinced he was at a Meatpacking district club; saw a clearing covered in moss while on a walk on my friend's property in Vermont that reminded me of the zen gardens in Kyoto; was convinced by my bartender friend who I've known since our summer camp days to drink, instead of a beer, a French 75 which, as described by Wikipedia, has "such a kick that it felt like being shelled with the powerful French 75mm field gun"; burnt the vegetarian curry I had prepared from scratch for a group dinner while reheating it right before meal time; was asked whether I was there to buy a gift card when arriving at a yoga studio; told a couple of friends the story of Chris Brown rolling up in two Cadillac Escalades to a public, NYC basketball court and asking to play on my pickup basketball team the day before he smashed a window right after appearing on Good Morning America; taught a lesson on inferences to 5th grade students at one of the charter schools I oversee; and promised to myself on the tail end of a impromptu and prolonged singalong session that included "Country Roads", "With or Without You", and "Take On Me" that I would go to sleep earlier the following night so I could wake up early enough to fit in a 10 minute morning meditation.
