Project 366: April

All right, all caught up! Here's what April looked like:

Project366: April

Choosing a favorite was as hard as doing it for March, but for unfortunately the opposite reason – I was just kind of "meh" about all of these. I wonder if that signifies any sort of fatigue with this project? I hope not (though I do plan to look through my pictures from the first half of this month to hopefully quell this suspicion).

114/366: Moncler display

23 April 2012

Saw this after grabbing lunch with an old friend/walking back to work. Perfect combination of brilliant and terrifying.

Sometimes it's tough to wrap my head around, because a picture that represents my favorite memory of the month is not always the same as my favorite picture. So while this one was the result of a very fleeting walk by a window display that stopped me dead in my tracks, the memory of cooking this meal in my apartment was by far the highlight of April.

Speaking of April highlights, here are some more: Had the time of my life singing karaoke. Got my first ASOS order. Saw massive and gel-tinted Kurt Cobain photos that made me want to be eleven years-old again. Walked to the first oyster shooter of my life with Aaron, Annie, and Vladimir (PS: delicious). Made a delicious meal. Visited home to do little other than watch crime television and eat with my parents.

Project 366: March

True to form, I am way late to my own party. I pretty much only remembered two things I did in March, so it was nice to have a reminder as I was putting this mosaic together.

Assembling this also reminded me that the weather was pretty awesome in March. Lots of walking through the city and eating with sunlight spilling through the windows. My favorite picture of the month was hard to single out, but here we go:

86/366: The Great Frog.

26 March 2012

I had only been to London one other time, when I was fourteen or fifteen. It was when Karma Police and Bittersweet Symphony were on MTV, and all I wanted to do was visit this store since I had read that Metallica liked to buy their jewelry there. Of course I couldn't afford anything, nor did any teenager have any business owning jewelry that expensive – most of their pieces are 100% sterling silver and hand crafted on site. Fifteen years later, I found myself back in London and with an hour free; turns out my hotel was a 12 minute walk from The Great Frog. Well, my patience paid off. Click through my normal photo stream to see what I turned out with. \m/

And for all curious:

I named mickymouseears Jeffrey.

Some March highlights: Went to Cleveland. Walked around SoHo for hours a few times. Celebrated the 100th birthday of Oreo in its birthplace (Chelsea Piers, the old Nabisco Factory). Had my first boba tea of the season. Went to London for just over a day. Congratulated an old professor at a Hall of Fame ceremony. Bought some art. And ended the month with delicious, tummy warming tacos while it rained outside.

April's roundup coming very soon (shame on me)!
