[rules of the road say don't look back]

Writing this really quickly before I head off to class.
I'm really excited for the weekend, especially since my weekend technically starts at 12:15 today! No Friday classes is going to be the best decision I ever made, considering I always hated waking up for recitation on Fridays last semester.
However, I cannot wait until I can fully take advantage of the city when it gets warmer outside. We have so many springtime plans that it almost kills me having to wait to accomplish all of them. Right now our lives consist of going on walks and hanging around the dorm. Tuesday Brynn and I walked six miles which I considered an accomplishment after six weeks of no walks at all!
I absolutely love my classes this semester. Of course the material is not what I would have chosen to study, but my professors make it all pretty interesting. I am obsessed with my psychology class, but that is to be expected.
Anyway, have to go finish getting ready for my 9:30!
I'm trying to post more, I promise.

[just another day]

Well, I'm finally back in Manhattan. The last two weeks or so at home were rough. I love my friends and family, but suburbia is definitely not New York City.
The past few days have been a rush of quickly readjusting to city life (by almost getting hit by cars/taxis multiple times) and preparing for the start of the new semester. I'm really excited for my classes this semester. The material interests me more and so far I really enjoy all of my professors. Plus I'm taking a psychology class which has me super excited!
The weather has been terrible for the past few days. Freezing temperatures paired with snow and sleet yesterday have had me practically barricaded inside of my dorm because I am the biggest baby when it comes to the cold. Luckily today is a sunny 45 degrees so Brynn and I have plans to go on a walk later when she gets back from class!
But now I have to get started on some reading for class tomorrow. Work waits for no one!

[do you hear the people sing?]

Well, after only a week and a half of being home I already am ready to go back to the city. What am I going to do over the summer?
I love being home. I love seeing my family and catching up with my friends. However, I was not prepared for how much I would miss the city. I miss being able to walk wherever I want. I miss the freedom that comes with city living. No worrying about gas money or having a car available. Places always open and people out and about. If I want pizza at 2 am, its only a block away. If I want coffee at eleven pm, I can go downstairs and Starbucks is open.
If I want to see my friends, I walk down the hall.
25 days. 25 long days.

On another note, I saw Les Mis last night. If you haven't seen it, go go go. Like get up right now and drive to the theater. So good. Melissa and I both walked out of the theater in tears.
