Peace within the Chaos

on June 23, 2013

The week ended on a great note because of fun activities with friends on Thursday and Friday after work. Hoboken’s summer concerts and movies on the pier began about a week ago, and I noticed that the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra was featured this past week. My friends and I originally planned on meeting in the city for dinner, but decided to get take-out instead and have a picnic while watching the concert. I found a spot on the pier after hopping off the shuttle and my friends brought the take-out from our favorite Peruvian place. Of course I ordered my favorite, ceviche mixto. No picture this time b/c it’s not the prettiest dish, but it sure is delicious! It was made up of scallops, shrimp, fish, calamari, and octopus. Another thing I love about Peruvian ceviche is how it always comes with boiled potato, sweet potato, and giant Peruvian corn on the side. After taking some pics we all chowed down and enjoyed listening to some amazing music. The orchestra played a great mix of songs that included patriotic tunes, movie soundtracks, and more traditional songs.

On Friday I signed up for free yoga in Times Square as part of the Summer Solstice event. There were free classes throughout the day, but we signed up for the 7:45 pm class in order to make sure we had enough time to get there after work. Luckily, I was able to get out early and met up with Kaitlyn near the check-in area. We arrived super early, so we walked around and explored a bit before finally getting to stake out a spot. Before setting onto our mats, though, we hit up the freebie area and stocked up on some goodies. Once the yoga started, Times Square calmed down and it felt surprisingly calm. The scenery was especially beautiful after the sun went down. I’m definitely participating in this event again next year.
