Lately, I’ve been in a bit of a funk; disappointed by my current lack of employment and lack of boyfriend (lol), I haven’t been the happiest. Although temporary and not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, I was … Sad. These feelings have given me an urgent need to explore, meet new people, get out of NYC. But alas, the unemployment holds be back from traveling. But to satisfy this need, I decided I just need to be alone.
So yesterday, I ventured to Union Square, a place I’ve been like a million times. Although it wasn’t a new environment, it made me feel calm and whole again. I window shopped at stores, spoke to strangers, and most importantly: tried new food!
I went to Uma Temakeria. It’s a sushi restaurant, set up like Chipotle. The sushi are served burrito style or on a cone called “Temaki”. I chose Temaki. Customers choose their own fillings from a list of provided foods, like Chipotle. I got salmon, cucumbers, carrots, tempura crunch and avocado lime sauce in my sushi cone. It was delicious!! Not filling due to its small size, but delicious all the same. I topped it off with a “Blue Hawaiian” smoothie from Edible Atrangements.
It was a great outing and something I suggest to the masses. It’s great to go out on your own and just enjoy the little things. Sometimes when you’re feeling down, you just need a break from the norm. Treat yourself- take yourself out to dinner, buy yourself those expensive shoes. And always, always indulge in a delicious meal!
