Finals: Spring Edition

View from the roof of Pupin at Astronomy Outreach Night

When I started this blog in January, I knew it would be difficult to juggle school, my internship, having a social life, and trying to keep this page updated.  I did not do as well as I expected, but such is life.  Now that the the end of the marathon is nearing, I am beginning to feel hopeful for this blog's future.  My summer plans include going home and getting a job.  In a perfect world, I'll put my bar tending skills to work, and maybe waitress on the side.  But we shall see what life gives me.  Other than that it will be a summer full of nights at the lake, camping with friends, quality time with my dog, and good memories with my boyfriend.  I'm hoping to read all of the Russian literature that I can find (Thank you Dostoevsky!) and try to get an editorial published in a newspaper somewhere.  After a year of pushing myself in the way that others have told me, I am so ready to guide my own life.  

But before that happens, I have just under two weeks left in the city before I say goodbye for three months and five days.  This town has become my home-- the streets are familiar, restaurants have warm memories, and grocery trips are no longer confusing.  I feel as at home in central park as I do at Pioneers park, and MoMA is more familiar to me than the Sheldon.  I love this city with all of my heart, even though I have spent only a week here without homework looming over my head.  But that's the beautiful thing about New York:  there is always more to be done.  The city makes you want to push yourself to your highest potential, but it doesn't force you to be anyone you don't want to be.  

I promise that this summer this blog will blossom, and when I return to the city, the energy of New York will not let it die.

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.
