So where did I leave off?
[Day 6] Recommend a book for us to read. Why do you think it's important?
If I could, I would probably give you a long list but I'll keep it at two for today.
State of the Union: A Novel - Douglas Kennedy
**There are other books called State of the Union. When I recommended this to my friend, she got the wrong book and ended up reading an entirely different story. Oops.
I know people who have settled and I know people who continue to wait. It was so easy to absorb myself into this character. It is a long book but I couldn't put it down.
The Missing Piece - Shel Silverstein
I think a lot of kid classics are incredible but this one always stands out (and The Giving Tree of course). There is something just so sweet about a broken circle realizing he doesn't need something to complete it. It has fun enjoying life just the way it is. Everyone should know that, not just little kids.
[Day 7] - Describe the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of yourself
I'm funny and I'm really curious. It keeps life interesting and fun.
I'm terribly impatient and I change my mind quite often.
I'm rarely content for long (part of being curious). I'm always looking to improve or learn/do something new instead of appreciating what I have. That probably explains why I'm always moving and changing my plans.
"Better is the enemy of good."
[Day 9] Describe the best day of your life to date.
The day I got engaged - May 27, 2012.
Not only did I get engaged, it was just one of those simply perfect days. I got to sleep in, eat my favorite New York breakfast of a Bagel Mill bagel and Starbucks, enjoy gorgeous weather in a surprisingly-not-so-crowded city, and see views from my favorite place in the world (the Top of the Rock). I got to call my family to tell them life-changing news and hear their squeals of excitement. I got to celebrate with my best friend over our favorite dinner of Tiny Thai and we enjoyed a post-dinner walk around the reservoir in Central Park. Yes, I also had to pack up my New York apartment but I saved the sadness for another day. I shared a beer with a friend before I left to say goodbye and share the good news and I got to end the day in bed next to my fiance scheming about an actual wedding date.
It will be tough to beat that.
