Hey Everyone! I decided to start a new monthly segment, titled Top Three, in which I list what I am looking forward to most the upcoming month. As a young adult, I have learned that you often have to create your own excitement, prizes and rewards. Plus, this February is a leap year; anything could happen!
- That’s right, this week marks the beginning of the second half of my twenties. For the first time, I think, “Shoot, I am getting OLD.” Regardless, I look forward to spending time with my friends and family this week. Any restaurants recommendations for my birthday dinner? My birthday in particular is a special date, because my grandfather had the same birthday as me. We always used to celebrate together. My grandfather has always been an inspiration to me: He immigrated from Poland as a toddler, and relentlessly worked to send my father to a private high school and a prestigious college. I mentioned him in my speech at my sister’s rehearsal dinner, because he was the foundation of the paternal side of my family.
2. Valentine’s Day: I have a unique position on Valentine’s Day (more on that later). I am not a big pink girl. And I’m single. But for some reason, I look forward to spending the holiday with my closest friends. It falls on the Sunday before President’s Day, so I definitely plan on spending the long weekend with my lovies!!!
3. TV: Though I am still working through Making a Murderer on Netflix, there are quite a few TV programs that I am looking forward to. First off, I can’t wait to see Ross from Friends play Robert Kardashian in The People v. O.J. Simpson! And how will Selma Blair (HELLO Vivian Kensington) portray Kris Jenner? I have so often heard about this case, but it was a little before my time, and I look forward to learning more about it in this short series. This week’s People magazine features a cover story on the trial.
Second television program that I am pumped about? The Oscars! Will Leo FINALLY get that Oscar he has been vying for years? Emily of Shell Chic’d’s take on how to host a proper awards party!
What ever happened to predictability? : My sister is five years older than me, and she basically had me grow up watching Full House. Perhaps that is why I love San Francisco so much? Hence, my excitement with the upcoming reboot, Fuller House. My general feeling is that it could be a hit or a miss. I look forward to tuning in on February 26!
What are you looking forward to most this month?
