It’s Friday night, nearly 9pm, and I’m finally packed and ready to hunker down with a bottle of lavender polish and the next episode of the Gilmore Girls in my Netflix queue. Honestly, this is a glorious way to spend this particular Friday night. Why, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you! I’m heading out tomorrow morning on a train to NYC! First, I’ll spend some time with my cousin and some old friends, and then on Sunday, I’m meeting with my Brandeis girls! When I was a college student, I lived with the same 6 girls all 4 years of college. It’s been almost 20 years and we’re still close friends. One of my old roommates lives in New Zealand, so when she comes to the east coast, we all gather wherever she is since it’s not often that we get to see her!
I love my NYC weekends, especially in the middle of work craziness, because it pushes me to take a break and just enjoy my surroundings. As much I adore living in Boston, I equally adore going for weekends in NYC. My cousin lives in the Upper West Side amongst a lot of hubbub, but once we get into her apartment, it’s extremely zen-like. I sleep well, I enjoy the sounds of the city, and most importantly, I get to spend time with my cousin.
So, I’m going to wrap this post up so I can go paint my nails!
