List of things I never used to do before moving to
- Dry my clothes on radiators.
- Run outside in a tank top in February and then sit in the sun for half an hour before going inside.
- Spend less than $5 on amazing bottles of wine.
- Buy baguettes almost daily.
- Sit at cafés on a (more than) weekly basis, drinking coffee from a “for-here” cup.
- Legitimately buy groceries at markets.
- Text—soooo much cheaper than actually calling people.
- Cry on the phone to random strangers whilst trying to sort out internet.
- End up at random festivals on the beach or in the mountains, getting chased by bears or offered free wine.
- Wait. A lot.
- Hang out in high schools. Almost all the assistants I know live inside high school campuses.
List of things I used to do all the time before moving to
- Eat burgers, and any sort of take-out or ethnic food.
- Get a latte to go.
- Cuddle with a cat.
- Do laundry at home.
- Spend too much time in a crafts store.
- Watch the Food Network.
- Undertake far too ambitious dinners (my studio kitchen is MUCH too small).
- Take a car to the grocery store.
- See family.
- Hang out on university campuses.
And one thing I did in
- Listen to the “This American Life” podcast on the bus on my way to work.
