I spent the day eating and shopping, a typical day to hang out with friends and catch up. You need to eat lunch and dinner no matter what and I need wardrobe in my closet for the upcoming summer season. I spend time with Jane, eating at a fancy restaurant where I ordered a Crab Cake Benedict, which was delicious but salad was too fresh, tasted like it was picked right out of a garden. Good that it’s healthy, bad that it didn’t taste pleasant since it didn’t have any dressings to suppress the leaves’ bitterness. We shopped around, mesmerized by the boutiques and cute small stores. Stopped by at Forever 21 and purchased two basic tank tops, a neon coral blouse, and a pair of teal shorts that came with a skinny black belt. Taking the train at hynes center down to Downtown Boston, the place seems much different and a step down from the dynamic atmosphere at Newbury. After finishing the errand of returning a North Face rain jacket that did not fit my grandma, I shopped around at Macy’s. Either Macy’s got more expensive or I’ve always perceived it to be mediocre and affordable. A skirt was $79. Forgot the brand, but I didn’t think it was worth it. Eating. Shopping. Eating again. Shopping again. Then I had to meet another friend for dinner.

Eating. Sleeping. Studying/working. All common necessities and apart of our lives. Eating on the other hand seems to be the way to go when you are meeting up with an old friend or hanging out with parents. You go out for a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant or a local cupcake shop that you’ve never been before but have always wanted to try. Eating is must and perfect for talking and creating conversations. There are many other things to do like movies, bowling, shopping, comedy shows, and more, but eating forces you to talk given that you will be together at the same table. Eating acts as a default thing to do anytime you hang out with friends, across all generations. Everyone eats!

It comes with it’s cons. Too much food and the expenses add up! A lunch, smoothie snack and dinner costs me a total of $33. If this goes on for a week, that’d be $231! Food can almost be a plane ticket or a Bruno Mars concert ticket! Not only food, but you’ll gain the weight if you make the wrong choices. Watch out for thinning your wallet and gaining that weight on your love handles! Nonetheless, eating is a common love for all people.
