A good day in my book includes a good cup of coffee, a run around the neighborhood and a lot of chocolate. January 24, 2014 was a very good day.
I took the bus into New York and went searching for a chocolate chip cookie, coffee, and chocolate. My friend recommended Culture Espresso one day so I went on Yelp to read some reviews. People were going on-and-on about their chocolate chips cookies and I had to taste it for myself. It was crispy on the outside but soft and moist on the inside. Very cliché but how else can you describe a cookie that's been done the right way? Unfortunately, it lacked that fresh-out-of-the-oven texture, which I was desperately seeking.
My next stop was Blue Bottle Coffee. The cafe felt cozy and the interior is modern and simple. I ended up reading a book while I sipped on a macchiato. It was a little too bitter so I added milk. I felt like I was making a faux pas but I'm not used to drinking really strong coffee.
Afterwards, I wandered around to see what else was nearby. To my surprise, I saw the Flatiron Building from afar. It's probably not a big deal to most people but I never saw it in person. What a beauty. On another note, I received some good news today! My aunt has a vacant loft in her apartment, located 2 blocks away from the building, and said I'm welcome to sleepover a couple of days a week. It's such a cool and strange coincidence. I guess stumbling upon the building was foreshadowing something really good.
