Of Note — December 21
Greetings from my journey to Ottawa! I’m flying up with my brother to meet the rest of my family and spend Christmas there. The holidays won’t be the most relaxing this year (I’ll be in my apartment for about 12 hours total over the course of 12 days), but Christmas in Canada is my very favorite time of the year, so it doesn’t even matter — I absolutely cannot wait.
I finished The Towering Sky this week (predicted the ending from the third page but I loved it anyway). It’s the third of The Thousandth Floor trilogy, which is kind of like a futurist Gossip Girl, and I loved reading them this year and it’s fun imagining what my life would look like in the tower. Hopefully less people dying than in the books.
There are 154 episodes of The West Wing. We’re in it for the long haul, team.

Best meal of the week was at Crafted the Art of Street Food in Greensboro. Food was just okay, but the company was superior. I was able to see some of my best friends from college because for one day (and one day only) we were all in the state of North Carolina.
