New York, New York

Friday is always the best day of the week, right? Well for me, this past Friday was extra special. was the first time I have ever been in NYC! And it won't be my last.
You all know how I aim to be a fashion designer, so the reason for the trip was actually to go to an information session at the renowned Fashion Institute of Technology. The school was amazing, both physically and in theory, and the opportunities they make available for their students both during school and afterwards is extensive and impresive. I look forward to applying in the fall!

And New York itself is absolutely stunning. Google Street View just doesn't do it justice. And the stores in Times Square have their own DJs? You've gotta be kidding me!
For the last portion of our time, we went down to Soho to have dinner with our cousin. We ate at Mezzogiorno, an Italian restaurant with some of the best food I've ever had. The business was just starting to pick up when we left around 9:30, and the candles and wine glasses scattered around made for an excellent atmosphere.

So here's a small summary of my Friday. I could have included a lot more, and I'm sure my dad would be upset that I didn't include anything about going in Madison Square Garden, but hey, he'll get over it! But seriously, every inch of the City was stunning and I'm just itching to go back!

Back in the Game

Hey guys,

Just a quick note to say thank for your support even in my absence. Even while I haven't been posting during the last couple of weeks, I still got mentions on twitter, page views, and more followers. You guys really encourage me to keep writing even when I want to give up or when I feel like I've run out of ideas. So, I have a post scheduled for tomorrow, and I plan to get back into the swing of things!
Thanks so much!
