Out of all the things happening this month, I’m happiest about the fact that I have experienced ACTUAL SUNLIGHT.
But there is more. I did a lot of regular stuff, and some fun stuff. Check it out below.
(This is me flirting with you. It’s never as attractive as I intend it to be, which is something that can be said about my flirting, my baking and probably later in life, my children.)
BFF DATE As an extremely belated birthday gift (what can I say, I’m inadequate), I took Lin to the Conservatorium Hotel for a champagne-and-steak-tartare lunch. I can always do champagne, but doing it in this beautiful hotel (with amazing lighting) made it extra spectacular. Afterwards we went swimming and talked for hours in the hot tub.
CELEBRITY SIGHTING When we came out of the spa, we walked past Drake and then Rihanna. I may have blurted out ‘holy shit’ before saying ‘hi’ to Drake, who (rightfully) looked at me like I was weird before giving us an awkward smile. Rihanna has amazing skin.
I shared it on Twitter and next thing I knew fans were demanding specifics on their location (NOPE) and a damn gossip journalist approached me to give her information about “my Drake/Rihanna sighting” (DOUBLE NOPE.)
WEEKENDS WITH BOYFRIEND What can I say? He is kind of adorable. (Kidding, I’m just using him for his wardrobe at this point.)
HIGH TEA WITH MY COUSIN Took her out for a high tea as an early birthday gift. Unfortunately I can’t be there on her actual birthday but like a tragic rich dad who’s never there I tried to buy her off with mini cupcakes and finger sandwiches. I think it worked.

GPOY What I do many a night: Have a cup of tea, grab my iPad and read books or browse Tumblr. This month I read Sharp Objects and Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (and a fuckton of fanfiction, but that doesnt count) and have started on The Maze Runner. I want to like it, but I don’t think that I do.
Mariet came over and took pictures of me that made me go “WHAT”, “that can’t really be my face” and “What is IN your CAMERA?!” 10/10, would recommend, for all the reasons. You can see a bunch of the brilliant photographs she took of me on my Instagram
(as well as the unattractive ones I have taken of myself)
We drank champagne, talked so much my voice cracked by the end of the day and she stayed for dinner. Also, I got her hooked on Teen Wolf. #SUCCES
THAMAR TRIBUTE After a chat on Instagram Thamar and I decided to go have cheesecake together. Thamar is fucking fun. Rough on the edges, and totally cool. I dig it. And she knows her food. I made her Mac and Cheese recipe the next day. It was filthy good.
OTHER THINGS THAT HAPPENED IN MARCH
- March can also go down in history as the month of the Banana Bread with caramel.
- In the first week of March I fell face first in a crowded subway train. The next three weeks my leg looked like a modern painting and I had a little bit of a House M.D. limp going on.
- I had the most embarrassing medical exam* with the cutest fucking doctor in the entire hospital. While my mom was there. Not okay.
- Work was slow during the first two weeks. Then it picked up to such a pace that I have permanent rollercoaster hair and don’t remember my last name.
- Last Friday, Manfriend went snowboarding for a week. During the weekend I only saw one friend and spent the rest of the weekend completely alone. It was AWESOME.
And now it’s already April! During the week it’s work work work, but in the upcoming weekends I have a workshop, a LARP event (so excited to try it), my birthday, Easter. Good stuff. Let’s get to it.
*Nothing serious and turns out I’m fine (no news there right HAHA)
