Friday and Saturday morning were admittedly not fun.  Saying goodbye to Justin was beyond painful.  But the tears really didn't last as long.  I was crying because I would miss him, but as soon as I hopped in the car, I was smiling and eager to arrive at my New York home.  The plane rides were actually very nice: not much turbulence, I got some reading done, and I listed to Don Savage's podcast, Savage Lovecast.  The bus from LaGuardia was fine, and I saw the most beautiful view from the bridge of Manhattan's skyline at sunset.  This city will never cease to inspire me.  

But the best part of yesterday had to be the hellos.  Last night was a flurry of hugs, Mario Kart 64, Pinkberry's grapefruit froyo, sushi and thai iced tea, and puzzles.  It felt like I never had left.  The best thing is that it continues until tuesday!  It's like Christmas all over again, except this time the presents are my friends.  I feel so lucky to know all of these people, and I can't believe that I get to spend another semester with them.

Meet The Author

I'm Madysen, born and raised in Nebraska but now living out my dreams in New York City. I moved here to go to Columbia, but living in New York has become so much more to me. This blog is a space where I can share my experiences of reconciling my midwestern upbringing with the life I live in the city. But even bigger than that, this blog serves as a space where I can try to understand where I fit into the larger social world, where I want to go in life, and how I want to go about pursuing all of these endeavors.
