Love you, Terry.

It's a big world out there, with so many people and places to see.

Whenever you're feeling despondent or discouraged from your everyday routine, remember this.
Who says salad isn't delicious?

There's macaroni salad. Potato salad. Tuna salad. Egg salad. And my ultimate favorite, pasta salad.

You know in the beginning of the movie, Rent, when everyone is standing on their New York fire escapes and burning their eviction notices because they refuse to pay rent?

Yeah, I like that scene.
Pass the oxtail, please.

It's my earned right as an adult to have a beer while watching an episode of a tv show about high schoolers trying to score beer.
Visiting Berlin was great. It was nice to be in a major city abroad again. 

Living in New York, it's so easy to get bogged down by the grind of everyday life here. I had forgotten that not all major cities need to run at a constant and neurotic speed of 24/7. The change of scenery from being in Germany's capital was refreshing, and I really enjoyed my time there.

It would've been nice to just have had one extra day to myself. I would've loved to take the subway, checkout some restaurants on my own, or explore neighborhoods in general. But I guess that'll have to be on another trip to Berlin where I'm not there for work.

Here are just a few pictures I was able to take while there.

Just because this doesn't happen often, there's something special about that moment when I'm freshly showered and in my hotel bathrobe to hear a knock at the door followed by, "ROOM SERVICE!"

I'm heading out to the airport in a few hours to leave for my work trip to Germany.

See you in Berlin! Have a great Sunday.
