10 THINGS I THOUGHT I WOULD BE ABLE TO AFFORD AS A POST-GRAD YOUNG PROFESSIONAL (IN LOS ANGELES)

A few of these things I have purchased. Most of these things are on my Christmas list. Provided in no particular order:
  1. 1.
    A SodaStream
    because I should get to feel fabulous af in the comfort of my own home
  2. 2.
    A Vitamix
    because my açai bowls deserve more than what a Magic Bullet can give them
  3. 3.
    Yoga
    because if you're a single Angeleno without a neighborhood yoga studio or an Instagram account for your dog, what are you even doing with your life??
  4. 4.
    A portable picnic table
    because I have very high standards for my snacking at Cinespia
  5. 5.
    A KCRW angel membership
    because if you're going to support your curiosity, you might as well collect cookbooks from Evan Kleiman
  6. 6.
    Cable
    because I thought I was over Apple TV, but I'm not
  7. 7.
    Plated
    because Facebook ads tell me it's how all the beautiful young professionals are eating these days
  8. 8.
    A Frenchie
    because Bumble boys aren't always the most reliable snuggle buddies
  9. 9.
    Travel

  10. 10.
    An external hard drive
    because protecting my data is the only kind of "backin' it up" I'm into anymore
