Here's the story on the next couple of weeks:
This Friday, my roomates and I are hosting my Pre-Birthday party. The living situation here has changed a bit over the past few months, and we haven't had a party in the apartment yet, so now is a great time to have one! So, I currently live with three people--Roberta, who was my suitemate Freshman year in the dorms, Justin, the boyfriend of another suitemate, and Jake, who was Justin's roomate in the dorms. We've all graduated and it's funny that we now live together, with the dorm-like feel to the apartment, but it's actually a lot of fun.
Tuesday, Feb. 1st, is my actual birthday--oh no! I'm getting so old! Time has been flying lately, and I feel like my life is passing me by. I know I'm just feaking out and it really isn't--so I'll just look at it this way, at least I'm still under a quarter of a century old =P
The Thursday after my birthday, I'm heading to New York City for a week. I'll be staying with Kat and her boyfriend, in their apartment in Manhattan. Why am I going you ask? Well, why not? It's a perfect opportunity to travel because: 1) I've never been to NYC, 2) I should visit before Kat moves back to Cali, 3) I don't have a job yet, so I have time to travel 4) Plane tickets were really cheap, 5) Mom said she'd pay for my ticket, & 6) I get to see some friends too! A couple of friends from my semester in Australia, Terrin (my roomate at Endeavour) and Chrystal, live in upstate New York--they will be coming down to hang out. I will also get to spend some time with two friends, Leo and Jun, whom I met during my European Contiki trip. Leo also lives in upstate NY, and Jun is visiting from Korea. I'm so excited and cannot wait to see all of them! The East Coast weather, however, makes me a little apprehensive. 10-20 degree weather? Honestly, the coldest I've ever been in is 30 degree weather--on a snowy mountain in my snowboarding outfit. Now, I can't tramp around New York in huge snowboarding pants. How am I going to survive? Boy, this will be an adventure!--So send warm thoughts my way next week...
