I somewhat unexpectedly fell in love a few weeks ago.
While at my internship in Brooklyn, I developed a healthy craving for a DELICIOUS sandwich. Seriously, not just any sandwich, but a REALLY, REALLY delicious sandwich.
So I googled "sandwiches brooklyn heights yelp." That's how I discovered Lassen & Hennigs. I am, no joke, quite literally, in love with the sandwiches here. And everything the place offers in general. Like, teenager-obsessed-can't-stop-thinking-about-it in love.
Every week, I count down to Wednesday and Thursday (my internship days), looking forward to my L&H lunches. I used to pack lunch from home - oh-so-frugal. But after my first sandwich here. Frugality and bad economy and student budget be damned! I'll skip eating the first half of the week and enjoy my L&H sandwiches, please.
I have ordered a different sandwich every single time and have yet to be disappointed. The strawberry lemonade is divine (it ACTUALLY tastes of sweet strawberries rather than just being dyed pink!). The chocolate chip cookies are perfectly cooked - just a BIT crunchy with a hint of chewiness in the center.
OMG. I am so happy today is Wednesday.

I recently watched an episode of 30 Rock (The Moms) where Jack Donaghy's mom (Colleen) finds out that he is seeing two women. The following is a few lines from when Colleen confronts Jack (at 7:25).
Colleen: Be a man and pick one!
Jack: I can't! They both give me different things; one connects me to the man I was, the other inspires...
Colleen: Just listen to yourself, Jack!
Jack: I know it's gay but it's my gay problem and I'm handling it!
I had to include the last two lines just because they're so awesome. But Jack's first outburst is the one that got me thinking: What happens when you have to make that choice? Not just in significant others, but to a variety of choices in life. Where to live? What job to take? What to study? Who to be friends with? What hobbies to pursue?
If someone or something connects you to your past and who you were/are and another someone or something inspires you to be different or better in the present/future, and you have to choose, how are you supposed to go about making that decision?
(And I know I keep claiming/promising to start writing more regularly/frequently ... but maybe this time I really will ... ?)
