Last weekend was really fun. Thursday evening, I met up with Sal, Michael and a few other people at Rose bar. Sal has really become a good friend since I interned at his company last summer. Afterwards, I met up with Heidi and her friends at the rooftop bar Arlo. I believe it’s a pretty new place, and it has really good views of the city. On Friday I had dinner with Khang in Hell’s Kitchen before we met up with Kevin and Josie for a drink. Saturday morning, we had breakfast in Bryant Park, and in the evening we had dinner reservations at The Modern which is a two Michelin Star restaurant. We did an 8 course tasting menu that was unbelievable. Even the croutons just melted in my mouth. After eating for over four hours, we then headed downtown to Comedy Cellar to see some live comedy. Without knowing the lineup, one of my favorite comedian Aziz Ansari went on stage. I haven’t laughed that much in forever. Definitely need some more live comedy in my life. Sunday morning, myself, Khang, Kevin and Josie went to The Smith for breakfast before we took the ferry over to Williamsburg for some strolling and a visit to a beer factory. Later in the evening we went and saw the magic show ‘In & Of Itself’.
On a completely different note; last week I did the Myers Briggs Personality test which resulted in the four letters INFJ. After reading about myself, I started sending the test around to friends and family to find out what they were. Flash forward, and now a week later I have probably read a year’s worth of psychology. It has revealed an awful lot about myself.
I’m like the antisocial humanitarian. Even though the 'i' stands for introvert I’ve always been very interested in people and forming relationships with them. Understanding people comes easy to me. I am very good at picking up on information through nonverbal cues, and whether I want it or not I absorb other people’s emotions. It comes natural to me to know a bunch of a person that they haven’t reveled. Maybe it’s because I’m just extremely understanding of other people’s emotions but more often than not do people want to share their life stories with me or they say things like ‘I’ve never told anyone this before'. I’ve learnt so much the last week about myself, my friends and how different human beings think, learns and makes decisions.
