The year is half over, and it's weird because 2015 has not been the kindest so far. I've got a lot more to write soon on mid-year resolutions and all that, but I'll save that for a different post when I've had more time to reflect.
It's been a little more difficult to choose "leftover" photos because I've been using Snapchat more (if you're on it, add me @traciglee!), but there's a good number of photos that never made it onto Facebook or Instagram, so here we go...
'Tis the season for cookie cakes! This was from a Winter semester intern at the end of her internship.
"How have we never noticed the tiger-striped building?!" Maxine and I went to Korilla off St. Mark's for the first time, and it was heavenly. A Chipotle-style fast food place for Korean/fusion.
Street selfie we sent to Michael. Who never texts us back. Sad.
One of my favorite things to do is wander and shop and eat with Yin. Her bubbly personality and energy is infectious, and it balances out my quietness. While we were hanging out on this occasion, Yin said to me, "You make me feel so calm!" which was a lovely compliment, I think.
Mediterranean dinner in the West Village with Carly! Some of my favorite food in my favorite NYC neighborhoods with one of my favorite people. What more could I ask for?
The opportunity to work with one fantastic intern is already a treat. Working with two fantastic interns is such a dream. Here they are working on a secret project with me at 30 Rock!
I don't even want to talk about these "tacos." But here they are. Ugh.
One of the things I'm really learning to appreciate this year are the small blessings that have made life just a little more bright, even when I don't really realize it. We have a cleaning guy who comes by twice a month, and normally I "pre-clean" pretty well so he doesn't have to do too much. But his last visit in June, I had forgotten he was coming by and spent the day out. When I came home, he had made my bed and re-stacked my bookshelf with all the books that I had piled up on the floor, and it was such a lovely treat to come home to. Look how comfortable Mr. Unicorn looks there!
