The April Agenda

April Flowers

It has come to my attention that I completely forgot about documenting my March agenda last month. Perhaps that’s partly because most of March was consumed with figuring out what constituted a low-iodine diet and in preparing for an I-131 whole body scan (which never happened due a snowstorm that hit the East Coast that week). So, yeah, March wasn’t exactly fun, nor did I feel very productive (but I was hungry for most of the month).

Since my health testing is temporarily on hold (through no choice of my own), I have decided to live it up a bit this month. With the weather improving daily, I want to spend more time outdoors and less time in front of my computer.

Here’s what’s on my agenda this month:

Go: I feel like I haven’t traveled much this year, so when I was asked to go on a work trip to Washington, D.C. at the end of the month, I jumped at the chance. Having spent two years going to college in D.C., I am always thrilled at the idea of returning—even if it is only for a day or two. While I won’t have much free time, I see a visit to American University and at least a couple of hours in the Georgetown neighborhood in my future.

Read: I have many books on my reading list, but sadly have not gotten to any of them. A fellow blogger recommended reading The Hopefuls, which happens to be set in Washington, D.C., and with my upcoming trip, it seems like the perfect read to bring along.

Try: I have wanted to try pilates for a while now as it is a nice complement to my yoga classes. So when a studio based in New York City and with locations in the Hamptons reached out to me on Instagram, I was elated. Unfortunately, with my busy schedule I have been unable to allot a day to driving an hour each way and taking a class, but now that the weather is nicer and the days are getting longer, I am ready to give it a go.

See: I never thought I would say this (and perhaps I’m too old to say this?), but I kind of want to see Beauty and the Beast. Is that wrong? I vaguely remember seeing it as a child, but after I heard the soundtrack on my way to work the other day, let’s just say my interest has been piqued. Have any of you seen it? Did you love it? I have been hearing good things.

Do: Two words—cat cafe. Yes, you read that correctly. I have been following Crumbs & Whiskers, a cat cafe based in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, for a while on Instagram. So you know I have to pay them a visit in person when I am in D.C. (trying not to take a cat home will be the hard part). To date, Crumbs & Whiskers has facilitated the adoption of 256 homeless cats, which is a mission I whole heartedly support. With every purchase from the cafe, a shelter pet is able to be fostered with Crumbs & Whiskers while they wait for a forever home. If you need a daily dose of cuteness, I highly suggest you follow them on Instagram.
