New York Day 01: Reacquainting.
February 3, 2014
I arrived in New York at 8:30am yesterday morning. I’m here visiting my best friend from college whom I haven’t seen in a few years. We spent the morning drinking mimosas and catching up as we are both terrible at keeping in touch. I had no idea she recently started a new job, where she lived, or who she’s been spending time with. She knew equally little about my life lately. Needless to say, the catching up took hours and is still underway.
We wandered around her neighborhood in the Financial District yesterday and ran a few errands to pick up things that I forgot to pack (typical). After a few hours of walking around the city in the beautiful 50 degree weather – hey! That’s a huge improvement over Grand Rapids right now – we went back to her apartment and spent the evening laughing at cute animal videos until we cried. This should not surprise anyone that knew us back in 2005/2006.
We woke up this morning to a winter storm warning and found cover in a wine bar a block away from Hypatia’s work for a lunch/work date. So here I sit, blogging, Merlot on hand, 400 Lux by Lorde playing overhead. No complaints, my friends. No complaints.
