The last time I trekked uptown to visit Central Park - one of my favorite places in New York City - was nearly a year ago. One year. (That's me, pictured below, relaxing during a summer picnic.)
As someone who loves this city and is proud to live here, I'm embarrassed to admit this. I do get out and try my fair share of new things, but when it comes to enjoying the city to its fullest, I sometimes feel I could be doing more. This week's Equals Record post touches on this predicament, and what I'm planning on doing about it.
An excerpt from the new post: Last week, when June 1st rolled around, it occurred to me that six months had passed since New Year’s, and I wondered, do people ever make mid-year resolutions? In a way, isn’t this an ideal time to assess what the year’s been like thus far? To have a resolution refresher? To make amendments?It seems that way to me, and in the spirit of kicking off the second half of 2012 on a positive note, I’m going to add one more goal to my original list. In the next six months—and over the summer, especially—I’d like to push myself to engage more with the city I live in. In terms of music, art, and culture, New York has so much to offer. And yet, I see maybe two or three concerts per year. I can’t remember the last time I visited Lincoln Center. I’ve never been to the Met. It’s shameful, really. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t know how long I’ll call this city home—I may as well enjoy it as much as I can while I’m here.
