Field Notes: The Duality Of Man Edition

Duality was the name of the game this weekend for Bwog.

Bwog did things in twos:
  • One of us wrote:
    • a play in 6 hours and saw it performed 14 hours later
    • their fucking thesis
  • Another slept:
    • in a hotel and hated every second of it
    • in their roommate’s bed and are still chasing that high
  • Still another realized:
    • they really like someone and hate it
    • that they’re the metaphorical top of their friend group
  • Someone impulsively:
    • purchased pants because they were stressed
    • almost cut their hair again
  • And someone went:
    • to see a specific exhibit at the MoMA
    • to the wrong MoMA

Bwog took it easy:

  • Took care of my family friend’s cat and had takeout in their apartment overlooking the city, feeling like the older single woman who lives in the Upper West Side that a part of me longs to be
  • Watched a LOT of Schitt’s Creek
  • Watched Sky High and Atlantis with new pals and remembered that things can be good :-)
  • Did no work
  • Was distracted by a dead bird on Milstein 2
  • Vibed in a Panera
  • Slept until 3 pm on Sunday
  • Had very good dim sum
  • Remembered how much I love trains
  • Ascended to new heights during the Yale Marching Band’s version of “Sorry” by Justin Bieber
  • Had the best broccoli-cheddar soup of my life in a 2 am Uber
  • Spontaneously went out for Korean barbecue at 12:30 am
  • Got a private tour of a Met exhibit and understood rich people a little bit better

Bwog took it less easy:

  • Nursed the longest hangover I’ve had to date
  • Decided to take an edible in a hot, sweaty gym and had the worst and longest high of my life
  • Experienced the circle of hell Dante couldn’t bring himself to describe
  • Tried to force myself to like yogurt, didn’t go well
  • Laughed so hard I cried 4 times in 90 minutes
  • Read the Communist Manifesto
  • Accidentally got too crossed, was indeed struggling to add $40 to a $313 bill at the bar tab
  • Turned 21
  • Had clear skin… then broke out
