Saturday night at the movies

Today was a wonderful Saturday! It was really cold outside but M and I decided to leave the door open all day at work because I really think it creates more foot traffic when people can freely enter the shop. As funny as it sounds, I feel like people are intimidated to ring the buzzer and open the door on their own. They enjoy stealthily sneaking into the store when we're not looking to avoid having to talk to sales people. When you think about it though, it just gives us more of an opportunity to talk to them if they actually step foot into the store in the first place, no matter which method they use to do so. Ah, the joy of retail! This is what my psychology has resorted to during the slowest shopping season we've seen in years...analyzing conversion rates and foot traffic!!

After a crazy wealthy family from Mexico destroyed our store five minutes before we were about to close, I changed into my gym clothes because I was going to go for a treadmill jog at the gym. After getting out of my pretty clothes, washing off my makeup and packing up my bag, M and I left the store and I trekked over to the gym. To my dismay, it was closing at 8 which wouldn't give me enough time to workout. I guess most people have better things to do on a Saturday night, but I was really looking forward to a good run!! Instead, I hopped onto the train which took me down to Times Square. I walked over to the biggest movie theater I've ever been in and bought a ticket to see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Going to the moves by yourself is actually really fun. This is the second one I've seen solo since I've been here. I think it should turn into a once-a-week kind of routine. It's a nice stress reliever and since I don't have a television, it gives me a chance to see what else is happening in the entertainment world! I lovedddddddd the soundtrack to the movie, it's playing via itunes on my computer right now. Sigh.

Tomorrow will be a good day. I am waking up early, heading to Manhattan to go to the gym and from there I'm going to check out an apartment on the upper west side. A friend from work owns it and has two rooms for rent. It's really close to central park and VERY reasonably priced. I hope the apartment lives up to its reputation because it would be sooooo wonderful to live in the city AND be able to save money at the same time! The fact that he has two rooms, one for me AND Kate is absolutely awesome....I guess we'll see!! I'll take pictures and keep everyone posted.
