celinthecity A beautiful plate of beef tartare from last night's lovely dinner at Oiji with J, @juliejuliesu and @chrisnewlove! We had such a great time and were served really well in spite of the DOH inspection right at the beginning of dinner service. I want to eat here again! 5d

celinthecity After last week's #blueapron missing-then-found-half-opened-box-with-no-explanation mishap, it was a relief to get a fresh box + cook and enjoy this lovely meal. Blue Apron was nice enough to reverse the charge though no one in the building has fessed up to taking then leaving a half-spoilt box at my doorstep Nevertheless, we ️'d the curry-spiced chicken thighs with sugar snap peas and fingerling potatoes It's good to be back in the cooking groove! 6d

celinthecity Like a proper graduate, I imbibed way too liberally the night before graduation. It took every ounce of concentration to walk up that stage and awkwardly smile when they called my name. It took a Bloody Mary and a huge plate of steak and eggs to resuscitate me 2w

celinthecity Indoor rock climbing, squash courts, gym ... a.k.a. Stuff people in grad school pay for but have zero time to use At least I got a glimpse of it while picking up my cap and gown? #gradschool zips by in a flash but #studentloans are forever (or so it feels) = 3w
