In this entry: I blog. I haven’t done much pure blogging for a while, and I’ve actually done little else but post my weekly assignments here. And nobody’s going to come to a blog to see the blog owner’s weekly assignments, right?
So here we go – a new post full of life updates, drama, and maybe even gossip. I don’t know where this entry is headed towards. I have a few updates I have to make after this though. I’ve taken to carrying around the (amazing, lovely, awesome, useful, and COMPLETELY SENSATIONAL) notebook that gifted me on my birthday last summer. In it, she undertook the difficult and lengthy task of writing every single piece of work I’ve posted on this Livejournal Account. It totals to just under 100 pages right now, isn’t that amazing? Words will never express how much I love you Nabila, for giving me the most meaningful presents I have ever received in the history of my life!
Those updates will be tagged as my subway ruminations 🙂 They are writings that will have, of course, taken place while riding the subway to and from New York University on the weekends that I choose to go home.
Other than that, I’m really REALLY excited for Spring Break. It begins soon – March 10 for me, since I have no classes on Fridays and I have the day off of work as well – and I can’t wait to go with my group on an NYU Alternative Break to New Orleans, Louisiana, where we get to work with an organization called Relief Spark. There are 10 of us – a few really cool sophomores who I’ve become friends with over the meetings – going on this trip along with 2 site leaders (RA’s Samara and Mark from Third North and Brittany) and 2 site advisors (RHD’s from Greenwich Hotel and Second Street). The 14 of us are driving down to Louisiana – a 2 day adventure – in 2 minivans. We’ll be stopping over in Tennessee and I’m really looking forward to this trip.
I mean really, a whole week in New Orleans – it’s going to be EPIC. AMAZING. BALLER. YESSSS ❤
I also recently (read: yesterday) found out that a friend of mine, Jonny, is ALSO going to be in New Orleans for a portion of my trip there. He told me he booked a flight and I was like…NO WAY I’M GOING TO BE THERE TOO. He’s really chill – he’s an International student (and loaded) from Singapore, born in Indonesia, and he has his own apartment right in Greenwich Village. I’ve chilled with him at his place a few times with his friends and he’s become a really good friend since we took The Politics of Administrative Law together last semester.
We’re actually in Law and Society together and discovered that we can now hang out with each other during Spring Break yesterday while studying for our midterm together. I’m not interested in him romantically or anything, but I’m glad that we’ve become such good friends! I love having good friends hehe.
Having written that last epiphany, however, I’ll move on to other things! Such as…well…the WEATHER. It is finally starting to get nicer outside, and I’m really looking forward to beautiful Spring days where I can sit out at Columbus Park (Right in the middle of where all the Federal Courts are), walk down the West Side by the Hudson Piers, and walk blissfully (instead of miserably) to campus, not caring in the slightest when the next shuttle leaves. Life will be so glorious without having to worry about shuttle times. Also, I won’t feel guilty eating Froyo or sipping on chilled bubble tea. I looooove the summer. I am SUCH a summer person, you have no clue. I’d rather summer than winter any day.
I’ll update you guys about how Spring Break goes as the date gets closer. I will not, unfortunately, be bringing my laptop along to the trip. I’ll bring my notebook however, and take tons of pictures! Expect some scrapbooking in the future, and I’ll definitely try to write at least a little bit every day.
Starting next year, I’ll be moving off-campus! NO MORE DORMING, YEP. Right now, I’m not sure what this means for me though. My original plan involved studying abroad in London for Fall 2011. However, due to monetary reasons, that plan is no longer feasible (Let’s just say…1 semester in London for me would cost about the same as 2 semesters here in the city. ICKY), I will either commute or move off-campus for the beginning of Junior year. Ideally, I want to rent a studio or a 1-bedroom apartment in the city with a friend of mine. If that works out, that will be AMAZING.
and I would have an AMAZING time living together. We’re basically twins, you see. We’re both from Long Island. We’re both Politics majors. We’re both taking Power & Politics in America together next semester. We both have the same budget and want to live in the same neighborhood. Tons of mutual friends, we took a Freshman Honors Seminar way back in the first semester of freshman year, and have been cloooose friends since. I love her ❤ And really hope that everything works out and we get to rent a place.
However, if, for whatever reason, that doesn’t work out as well….
Commuting + Unlimited Metrocard, here I come.
Midterms have been going on since last week, and I have my last one the Thursday before Spring Break starts. It’ll be sort of nice in that I’ll get that midterm over with and then I am FREEEEEEE like a bird. I need to go home this weekend, do all of my laundry, and pack! I’m really really really really excitedddd, but I think I’ve already said that a few times in this entry! We’re actually leaving on Saturday, March 12, at 5AM. The brilliant people that we are, we’ve decided to have an all-night sleepover/slumber party at UHall the night before. We’ll all head over as a group and make sure to avoid a situation where there’s this ONE person who oversleeps and misses the trip.
I think I’ve ranted enough for now. Enjoy the read, comment and let me know that you love me!! Byefornow ❤
