This has been a great weekend already, and exactly what I needed. I’ve had time to relax and recharge and also see some old friends.
Today, I met up with one of my closest friends from college, Shelley. She ended up transferring to NYU from AU, and I didn’t meet her until the semester before she transferred, but we immediately bonded. When I moved to NYC, I was excited we’d be living in the same city again, but she moved to LA (where she’s from) last summer.
Sometimes you see an old friend and you smile and make polite conversation, but you know something’s changed in the dynamic. And then sometimes it feels like nothing’s ever changed. Shelley and I gabbed for hours, until I eventually had to leave to get my hair did.
We ate at Bondi Road, which my coworker Jessie suggested. With an $18 bottomless mimosa brunch, how can you go wrong? Shelley and I both liked the idea of the salmon benedict, but aren’t crazy about poached eggs, so we asked if we could have our eggs scrambled instead. Brilliant idea.
The restaurant had a super chill vibe, and I definitely want to return when I have more time to take advantage of the bottomless mimosa.
And I got my hair did.
