Have you ever waned the world to stop?

When I was little I always wanted the world to stop, even for a minute. I wanted to be the one who can see frozen cars and birds, walk around when everything stops. I bet you thought about that at least once in your life, didn’t you? 🙂

Believe it or not but it happened to me, well… almost.

I go to school in Boston and the main two buildings are located by a pretty busy street. There are cars there at all times, day and night. People walk from building to building, class to class.

You may think, how did the world stop then? It did!

It was a Tuesday afternoon. I got an alert from public safety that the school is going to be closed because of the snow storm. Since the weather seemed to be just fine, I decided to stay at school for a longer time. Few hours later, I looked outside and realized that the snow has come. That night I decided to sleep on my friend’s couch and not risk going home in such wind and storm. The next morning I woke up to a frozen world.

Almost no cars, no people. Just silence and snow. I felt like the world froze for a day. I walked around, everything was closed, the city was absolutely dead. In a place like Boston only snow could put it to ”sleep” and it did. It was strange.. yet beautiful.

Have you ever wondered how would it feel like if the world stopped? I got to experience only a little bit of that and it was beyond magical.

Remember, find joy in the little moments 🙂 Go for a walk with your friends, have a snow fight, cook with your family. There is beauty in everything. Just open your eyes and see it!

Dinner served by Chef at Hyatt, met him on Uber.. How to make fairy tales come true!

October 23rd, 2017.

I can’t remember what time it was but it was late. I decided to take Uber Pool home. We stopped and picked him up. Conversation started and he tried to figure out where I was from. Ukraine? Slovakia? Poland!

“You remind me of someone very dear to my heart. I am a Chef at Hyatt in Cambridge and I would love to cook for you one day because you brought me back all these beautiful memories. Here is my number. If you are ever around, please come by.”

5 months later..

February 15th, 2018.

“Hi Nick! This is Basia. I don’t know if you remember me.. We met on Uber 5 months ago”

March 3rd, 2018

That date will forever be in my memory as a day of my fairy tale coming true. Me and my friend Mesi arrived at the hotel at 5pm. Found the restaurant and a reserved table waiting for us. At this point I was so nervous and excited at the same time, I could’t move. He finally came. The one and only – Nick. The sweetest most polite person. He said that we can choose whatever we want from the menu and as much as we want…

You know the feeling when you can only choose one thing and you feel very bad because you can’t decided? Imagine knowing that you can get all that you want, and you want the whole menu… 🙂

We didn’t want to ask for too much so we ordered one appetizer for both of us. I think maybe we said something wrong but we received 7 dishes… Not one but seven..

(there was more, that’s just a part of it!)

Nick took care of us and brought everything to out table, explained what things were and left us with the most delicious food I’ve ever tried in Boston.

Every single second of that Saturday evening felt like a movie and dream that is impossible to come true. Yet, there we were, sitting in a restaurant, eating delicious food made by such an incredible human – Nick, trying to keep every second and never letting go of the pure happiness we’ve had in our hearts.

I truly believe that good comes back to you and the best things in life happen unexpectedly.

After those 7 delicious dishes it was time for… dessert! Of course 🙂

Oh I can still remember the flavor of every single thing that we received. IMG_1267.jpg

Looking at those pictures I still can’t believe that it happened to us.

I met Nick on uber.. How unpredictable is that. My lesson from that is to always be kind and nice to people who you meet in life. Be good to one another and the kindness will come back to you.

Nick, thank you so much for hosting us and making this fairy tale come true.. 🙂
