Since I moved to New York City for the summer I've created endless bucket lists of everything I want to do before I leave. Most of these things are very achievable (and text book cliche tourist), like going to the top of the Empire State Building, or going to the garden from the end scene in You've Got Mail. But some are very far-fetched, and even though they say anything can happen, it's highly improbably that these will happen while I'm here. (Although I think my life would be made if any of these things actually happened to me while I am here.)
1. Run into Taylor Swift
Yes. I would love to run into Taylor Swift. But as much as I would love for this to happen, I know for a fact that this won't be possible as she's currently on the 1989 World Tour.
2. Run into Jimmy Fallon
Of all of the highly possible but mostly improbable things that could happen while I'm in NYC this one is actually quite possible. The Time & Life Building is literally right across the street from Rockefeller Center, and every day on my commute to and from work I pass the neon signs that say "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". Like seriously, how cool would it be to head out on my lunch break and run into one of the current kings of late night television? My entire young adult life would be made.
3. Get stopped by the Humans of New York guy
This one probably falls in between running into Taylor Swift and Jimmy Fallon. Although my dad says that it's likely not to happen, because 1) I am not actually from New York and 2) I am (according to him) marginally human, I have already gone over in my head what questions he could possibly ask me if I were to be stopped and their corresponding answers.
4. Meet my soulmate on the top of the Empire State Building
LOL let's be real here: I only put this on the list because I am a hopeless romantic who's overly obsessed with Meg Ryan movies (has anyone even seen Sleepless in Seattle?!), because things just don't work that way in real life (even though I am thoroughly convinced that if my life were actually a television sitcom, it would quite possibly be the greatest thing ever).
