i found a therapist! (nyc day 9)
It's this $40 watermelon soju! I'm not sure if I'm doing this "drinking your sorrows" thing right, though, because now I'm sad and drunk. Maybe I haven't had enough?
I've been thinking a lot about this song by KAROL G. In it she sings,
Recuerdo que le hablaba a la luna y le pedía al sol
Que por favor me devolviera mi primer amor
Aquella noche sin sueño me hice amiga del alcohol
Pero no era pa' olvidarte, era pa' evitar el dolor
I remember when I talked to the moon and begged the sun
To please give back my first love
That sleepless night, I befriended alcohol
But it wasn't to forget you, it was to escape the pain
The lyrics for that song are something to behold; it might just be my favorite breakup song. Where else do you find lines like this?
Y si fácil me caí, mas fácil me levanto
Porque en mi mundo
No existe ni los finales tristes ni los finales felices
Pero sí creo en los nuevos comienzos
If I fell easily, the easier I get up
Because in my mind
There are neither sad nor happy endings
But I believe in new beginnings

- I had the plain udon ($14) and the takoyaki ($11) at Udon Lab (43 W 32nd St, New York, NY 10001) for dinner, which was just okay.
- Afterwards we went to Pocha 32 (15 W 32nd St 2nd floor, New York, NY 10001) to drink, which was my first time at a pocha. Everything was so expensive @_@ but the watermelon soju was tasty and left me pretty buzzed and trying to feign sobriety on the way home.
