New York City!!

5 06 2010

HELLO ALL! It FINALLY feels like summer. Everything’s DONE, well, minus the huge PARTAY tomorrow at my house. But that’s not work—that’s FUN!

So…as shown in my post’s title, my class went to NEW YORK CITY! And it was oh-so-amazingggg.

We did everything and anything! I LOVE NYC, but I realized that I love where I live, and it is a perfect fit for me. I was astonished by the grime and trash, which there was a LOT of. The lack of green was a big deal for me too! But I loved the walking, the shops, and all the FOOD (FROYO, anyone?). (I’m not saying NYC would be a BAD place to live, I just think I would rather vacation there! Everyone’s different 🙂 I want my family to spend a Christmas there SO BAD!!)

I have over 350 photos, but I won’t show them all 😉

There aren’t a lot of photos because most of the photos of me were taken by friends!!

I had SO much fun! I mean, Mary Poppins HELLO?! Beyond amazing.

We actually were delayed like three hours in the airport. Here’s the math equation:

mini soccer ball+boys+near-empty airport+dancing+diet coke/gum+best friends+candy/snacks+running all over the airport=AN ABSOLUTE BLAST.

I am SO happy to start normally blogging again. Gah, I’ve missed it so much.

A food post will be up soon! I MUST post my TJ’S goodies from a while ago.

I’m utterly exhausted. 12+ hours of walking every day and less than 6 hours of sleep a night=tired JESS!

Goodnight loves!!

❤ jess

Looks like you had an awesome time! I agree with you 100 % though, I would NEVER want to live in NYC or any other city, for that matter! Give me my nice little small town any day. :] But class trips are always imfamously fun! We went to DC a couple years back… it was CRAZY.
