A few things.

1. Dieting is hard because as soon as the mere suggestion of fried chicken crosses my mind, it's like a plague I can't shake for the rest of the day.

2. I took so many pictures in LA, I need to take some time and really sift through them this evening and post my travelogue on Glamour.

3. Everytime I come home from LA I get inspired to exercise more, wear brighter colors, eat healthier, and get more sunshine. Logistically, in New York, all these things are harder to do.

4. As recently as one year ago I officially had no hobbies, but now I can count ukulele-playing and  screenplay pretend-writing among my extracurricular interests. I think that might be a sign of happiness—having hobbies?
