Somedays...

...you stay inside all day, studying, sulking in the depression caused by living by florescent light alone.  The only thing in the world you're looking forward to is the trek to the dining halls you are always complaining about.  So what's so different about today?

Snow.

Some people hate it.  Sometimes I hate it.
(but only in New York)

Today's snow reminds me that in less than a week I'll be home, with everyone I love.

And while the snow falls down on this noisy city that not even a white blanket can quiet, I dream of that Nebraska snow I hope and pray I get to see this year.  It's the snow that insulates that little patch of earth from the rest of the world, from reality.  The snow that silences everything, even your thoughts, until all you can hear is the accumulation of flakes slowly landing upon the ground, and the soft crunch as you trek into the silence, looking up into that dark grey sky and smiling.

Yeah it's cold.  But sometimes when you feel the most numb you realize how alive you really are.

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.
