How I Met Your Mother has the bar MacLaren's.
Why can't my life play out like a sitcom? The one thing I wish everyone in the world has is their own Central Perk or MacLaren's. Just a spot where you can sit with your friends and hang out. Nothing meaningful has to happen. You don't need to make plans for the day and follow that strict schedule. Just go to your designated hang out spot and follow the flow from there.
I sort of had a spot like that. It was a teahouse on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Small and simple. Just order a flavored tea and riceball. Sit there and just talk. It was convenient since it was right across the street from my church. Then they moved a few blocks down to a larger venue. Being lazy New Yorkers, the location became too much of a hassle to walk to.
That was the closest I've ever had to my own hang out spot. Maybe one day, I'll find it.
Don't you just hate it when you want to blog, but you have nothing to blog about? Happens to me all the time. Others rarely face that dilemma. Some people can blog to their heart's desire and still have more to write. It took me a while to think up a topic to blog about. And I didn't even come up with it. I just saw a How I Met Your Mother .gif and it reminded me how awesome it would be to have a hang out spot.
This Sunday has turned out to be a lazy Sunday night. Perhaps I'll clean out my room. It's been long overdue. My suitcase is still unpacked from winter break. My poster fell down and is not just lying idly on my bed.
