Field Notes: Holiday Celebrations And Llamas Edition

Bwog is back, baby! And, of course, we kept ourselves busy over the break.

Bwog celebrated the holidays:

  • Took 7 shots of vodka while I had the flu
  • Went to my first New Year’s party ever
  • Went home for the first time in 4 years!!!
  • Got drunk off of rum dispensed from a squirt gun
  • Spent NYE at Mel’s with a mix of high school and college friends
  • Went in a hot tub while it was snowing
  • Hosted and cooked Christmas dinner for my extended family

Bwog spent time with loved ones:

  • Had my first New Year’s kiss
  • Spent many hours petting my puppy
  • FaceTimed college friends almost every day of winter break
  • Smoked weed with my mother for the first time
  • Went to Tokyo on a mother-daughter trip with my friend and our moms

Bwog traveled:

  • Lost my phone in the Auckland airport like an hour before my flight and had basically a full psychotic break till I found it
  • Started my break but staying the night in LaGuardia Airport (15 hours in total spent at airport) because everything that could’ve gone wrong with my flight-went wrong. and it wasn’t canceled until 2 am, meaning there was no point going back to my dorm for my rescheduled 8:30 am flight
  • Went back to NYC 2 days after going home

Bwog made some purchases (or should have):

  • Bought Quizlet Plus so I could study on the plane, slept through the entire trip
  • Bought 2 new and exciting jumpsuits
  • Bought a mood ring
  • Got a new ice cream machine from my boyfriend and made hojicha ice cream
  • Saw a multicolored whisk in a store and didn’t buy it, currently regretting that decision

Bwog tried new things:

  • Wrote creatively for fun for the first time in ages and felt cleansed
  • I read fiction? For fun??
  • Learned how to use a bong
  • Have now done molly in both hemispheres

Bwog started thinking about the future:

  • Took too many LSAT practice tests and fried my brain before the semester even began
  • Applied for and got two (2) jobs
  • Applied to work with bees over the summer
  • Pushed off applying to research gigs and now I’m behind whoops!
  • Worried about the future

And did everything else in between:

  • Fell off a cliff twice
  • Got weirdly into yoga
  • Played Bananagrams against myself and lost
  • Entered My 20s and The 20s
  • Ate many hotdogs
  • Got chased by a llama
  • Listened to Fine Line until my brain melted
  • Went to Pete’s Tavern and the Bryant Park Winter Village
