My Week

Pit– The pit of my week is totally #firstworldproblems, but I had the hardest time with transportation this week! First, on Monday it was POURING rain during my morning commute. I walk over a mile to work each day because the subway isn’t convenient to take to my office, but when it rains I’ll usually just take an Uber pool. I waited over 15 minutes for my driver and I was already in the car when he told me it was canceled.. wth?! ALSO, I took a Lyft line home from a work dinner on Wednesday, and the 3 mile ride turned into 15 miles and 1 hour and 17 minutes in the car. The other rider and I were SO confused (clearly our driver was too) because he took us to Brooklyn when we were both staying in Manhattan. It was v. inconvenient, but there are definitely worse problems to have.

Peak– The peak of my week was getting reposted on the LiketoKnow.it Home Instagram page! I’ve put a lot of time and effort into decorating my apartment, and I loved seeing how many of you guys liked it too 🙂
