Mostly thanks to couchsurfing.org, I have been rather active (and social) the past few days.
On Friday, I went to a pole dancing lesson held by a fellow CS member. I met new people (random enough, there was one Finnish girl who happens to be classmates with one of my oldest friends, in another city where I lived), had fun, and learned that I do not have much muscular strength. I knew that already, but it is odd how easy it looks to be upside down hanging on a pole. The class definitely helped me loosen up. Don’t know, if me and the pole will have many encounters any time soon, but it was fun to try!
Saturday I went to Moma ps1 and 5 points in Long Island city. After that, I defied the laws of nature and walked 48 blocks north and 8 avenues east, in heels, to the biggest house party I have ever been. Rough estimate of attendants is around 500. I was in my element behind the bar counter making drinks. Got nice tip (that paid for the cab ride home!), met a lot of new people – win, win! I also wanted to go to a party on the Manhattan bridge, but since the weather was bad, I had the aforementioned uncomfortable shoes (and a mini skirt), the party was good, and I had no clue how to get from Upper East Side to the bridge fairly easily, I decided to hang out with the people I already was with.
Since there is no picture of the rooftop party, here’s the view from Webster’s rooftop.
Sunday activities: picnic in Central Park, followed by coffee and baguettes in a nice cafe, then to home and to NyQuil-spiked sleep at 8.30.
