+thunderstorms! Especially watching them from the safety of a room or under scaffolding, but sometimes being in them, too
+obscure family coffee shops in the East Village with cool older baristas and a perfect atmosphere
+readings books on writing in a bookstore (& being very much motivated/inspired!)
+writing fan, snarky pieces for my internship. Yay for ripping apart Cocorosie and Crystal Castles!
+giving a bag full of fruit bars to a surprised homeless man
+a present of unexpected cupcakes!
+hiding under a grove of trees in north central park as the rain pours around us
+makeout photoshoot + modeling in ridiculous, baby oil greased shoots for my friends
+finding a copy of Lula for six dollars on a stand on the street!
+meeting, as usual, the most interesting strangers with their own quirky projects
+The Game-yes the book about pickup artists by Neil Strauss. I finished it in about two days and I feel like I've learned so much. (I almost wish I was a guy so I can try out some of these techniques and watch it work, as fucked up as it might seem)
+the grass, flowers, and city bursting with life and beauty right after it rains
+finally bringing my Ferragamos and platform oxford stilettos to a shoe repair shop--now they are absolutely perfect and more comfortable than new <3!
And you? What little lovely things are making you smile wide in this last week of July?
