Guys. I'm sitting here watching Julie and Julia (for the first time) and chopping and mixing some salsas that people are paying me to make. And I just started crying. Because. Guys. My life is so awesome.
“Bringing about change, in terms of how the legislative process operates, in terms of the power that lobbyists have, the power that special interests have—that is a work in progress. It’s just not going to happen overnight. But I don’t regret, during the campaign, having said that we can change that process. We can make it more transparent… we can reduce the power of special interests… We can make sure that, as a White House, we are more open than previous White Houses…. I guess, on all these issues, my attitude is, if we’re making progress, step by step, inch by inch, day by day, that we are being true to the spirit of that campaign.”—President BARACK OBAMA, on The Daily Show.

Also: Can I be political for a minute? I know I follow a bunch of people in Colorado. My dad is awesome and working super hard to make sure that elections in Colorado are non-partisan, transparent, efficient, and fair. If you haven’t voted yet, please vote. And I’d be super grateful if you voted for him.
78. Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A. Had this one before too, and not at the location in the NYU student union. Proof that anyone who lives his entire life in New York is missing out.
59. Shrimp Roll, Luke’s Lobster. Buttery, warm, perfect. There’s a Luke’s Lobster in the East Village, so it’s an ideal pre-drinking spot. I took a preppy girl here once before we spent the night in Alphabet City, and I like to think Luke’s helped me out that night. Girls that wear Vineyard Vines are a sucker for this place.
