Soooo this year I am trying to do things differently, or do things outside of my comfort zone. I met new people, went to Charleston Fashion Week, wore bracelets even though I barely wear jewelery, let my arms hang free, called an embattled CEO and over the weekend….. I ate sushi. I hate the smell and taste of fish. If I eat seafood, it has to be cooked crab and shrimp, but I tried sushi and it was great. I even went back a second time. Go me! My friend Khali and I went to Miyo’s after driving around Columbia, only to find every other sushi spot closed. I had the Godzilla (rice, seaweed,crab, all fried tempura style) and the Mermaid (rice,seaweed,crab,salmon,shrimp, and cream cheese). It was good. Even though I love the Godzilla, it was just too big. The Mermaid was smaller, and the cream cheese gave it a very interesting taste. I just need to get over the texture issue and learn how to use some chopsticks. Now take a look at my shoddy camera phone skills. Actually I like this photo. It is kind of grainy though.
Last night Khali and I went and had an adventure on the Metro, getting lost in D.C., and eating in the post office my dad used to work in while in college.
Today I went to the South Carolina brunch, and then I went to the We Are One concert. I have never done so much standing and walking in my life. It was so much fun. I saw the first and second family-elect ,U2,Beyonce,Stevie Wonder, John Legend,John Mellencamp,Pete Seeger and his son, James Taylor, Jennifer Neetles from Sugarland, Shakira, Usher, Herbie Hancock, Heather Headley, Shelry Crow, Will I. Am., Josh Groban, Renee Fleming,Mary J. Blige, Jamie Fox, Denzel Washington, Queen Latifah,Samuel L. Jackson,Steve Carrell, Jack Black,Tom Hanks,Marisa Tomei, Rosario Dawson, and more.
I have never seen so many people of different ethnic backgrounds singing, dancing, and just participating together. I love it, and I am so glad to have this experience.
