Tuesday Taste: I Was Told There'd Be Cake

"As most New Yorkers have done, I have given serious and generous thought to the state og my apartment should I get killed during the day. Say someone pushes me onto the subway travks. Or I get accidentally blown up. Or a woman with a headset and baby carriage wheels over my big toe, backing me into some scaffolding, which shakes loose a lead pipe, which lands on my scull. What then? After the ambulance, the hospital, the funeral, the trays of cheese cubes on foil toothpicks... 

Back in the apartment I never should have left, the bed has gone unmade and the dishes unwashed. The day I get shot in a bodega (buying cigarettes, naturally) will in all likelihood be the day before laundry Sunday and the day after I decided to clean out my closet, got halfway through, and opted to watch sitcoms in my prom dress instead."

Borrowed from I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

My comment: I have read a few of the essays in this collection, and I love them. I knew this book was something I would enjoy the moment I found it stuffed into an overflowing shelf at a bookstore called Greenlight Books in Brooklyn. I have yet to finish the collection, but I have really enjoyed it so far and I encourage you to check it out if you like essay collections as much as I do, and even if you don't I think you might still like this.

Just the Highlights (1)

On one of the many blogs that I have started and somewhat kept up with the past few years, I used to do these posts where I would note all the small things/moments I appreciate about my life. It's a thing I started doing after feeling pardon my french really shitty for a long time. I know this might not be interesting to you, but I like it, so yeah, that's all for now. I hope you guys are having a good week.

Love, H

ONE. A few weeks ago my younger sister turned 21, and I got to spend the day celebrating this incredible human being that I get to call my sister. It was lovely.
TWO. This past week I got to spend time with some of my best friends, and I feel so fortunate to have them in my life. Sometimes all you need is someone to be there with you, someone that you know will be there for you if you ever need them and it is so nice to be reminded of that.
THREE. I rediscovered my love for Margot and the Nuclear So and So's. A band that I used to love, and when I found them on Spotify I remembered why. I really encourage everyone to check them out, because they're amazing.
FOUR. This song in my life right now: Michigan by The Milk Carton Kids. I have fallen completely in love with this song. It is so beautiful. Gahh, I just love it so much. This is the type of song that makes me want to take long walks, write poetry and experience the world in slow motion. 
FIVE. Oakland Rain, a local band, their music is very soothing and nice. I really think you should check these girls out, they are very talented. 
SIX. Having a few days off work. It has been so nice to be able to read and write and just be home for a few days.
