Things to do now

1. Stay in a hotel in your own city; it’s one the greatest things you can do. Wake up early, and explore that part of the city.

2. Have rain-music on your iPod and sit in a park or by a rainy window. Music should include:

Walk on the Wild Side, Lou Reed

Youth, Foxes

♣ Born To Die (the entire album), Lana Del Rey

♣ Fast Car,  Tracy Chapman

3. Eat Well. Eat fancy food. Eat at fancy places. Eat at home the rest of the time so you can save up the money.
