  • being reunited with D in Dublin, criss-crossed sitting across from one another at table in hotel room, wood paneled, room service, chomping on wood-fired pizza, staying up until 2am because we wanted to catch up, pure joy
  • chatting with D, laughing, eating wings with Guinness bbq sauce, in the white-tiled restaurant in the brewery in Dublin, bright light, completely relaxed and no agenda
  • our bedroom in mnyk, sitting on top of the comforter, with the window open because it was warm enough even though it's February, the river shining, R's silhouette in the window, cool breeze, soft light, D sleeping next to me, reading the Magus, feeling at peace, feeling infinite

  • 3/14 : officially made the decision to practice social distancing and stay in as much as possible; Gordon Ramsay-style scrambled eggs and an episode of Spongebob for a sophisticated breakfast; was in a weird mood all day; kind of reneged on the idea of social distancing to celebrate Dillion's award and went to dinner at Taqueria Feliz
  • 3/15 : trip to the liquor store for more bourbon for Dillion and a whisky for my dad and waited in line for 45 min; slow afternoon; turkey bolognese for dinner; Bob's Burgers
  • 3/16 : made cold brew in the morning; ran to the post office to return Summersalt bathing suits (my body apparently does not do one-pieces well); Zoom interview, job talk, and grad meeting; sneaking lunch in during my breaks; RHONJ marathon, season 8; heard that dine-in restaurants must shift to takeout/delivery only and ordered a ton of wings; ate sai..._Ugly Delicious_
