Today's "Missing This" feature is a triple-threat. I miss all three of these things so much, and now they all have a lot in common, so I decided to put them all in one post. I suppose I should start somewhere, so it'll be the place I am missing the most right this second:
New York, New York!!!
I was lucky enough to visit this amazing city a few years ago, and let me tell you, I fell in love. It might be cliche, but the hustle and bustle of this city is unlike anything I have ever seen. There is always something new and exciting around every corner, and you can just feel the energy on every street. Needless to say, I haven't been back since and I am DYING to go for two very important reasons.
Love them, no longer love sledding. (long story)
Two of my really good friends, Dom and Ami just picked up their lives and moved to the Big Apple. Can you believe that courage? It takes so much confidence to move all the way across the country, and I am so proud of them. If any two people could do it, it would be these two. Let me break it down for you.
I met Ami my sophomore year of college, when she joined the sorority I was in. (Yes, I was in a sorority, lets not make a big deal about it) Anyways, we took Oceanography together and shared an equal amount of loathe and disdain for the class. After that, we became fast friends who shared lots of inside jokes. (Most of which included her making fun of me for the retarded things I say)
If I could think of one word to describe her, it is creative. She is an amazing writer, with so much talent! And it does not surprise me in the least that she followed her talent to New York. She will do nothing but flourish there!
I also met Dom sophomore year through my sorority. Dom is hilarious, and could always figure out a way to make me smile. (Even if she doesn't like children or puppies!) Whenever your with Dom, you are guaranteed to have a crazy good time with some kind of hilarious adventure to follow.
I can only describe this as my sad face because I miss her? I dunno...
Dom is a bit of a fabulous contradiction. I have never met anyone who is an expert at having a GREAT time, but has a solid head on her shoulders. This is a girl with a plan, who isn't messing around. I can't even figure out what I am doing tomorrow, but Dom has got the next 5 years down to a T! Her ambition and work ethic will drive her straight to the top in NYC!
So, like I said this is a triple-threat. I miss New York, and my two friends who live there. I guess that is three BIG reasons for me to purchase a ticket a.s.a.p right? I guess there is only one problem.
Too Broke to Travel Complication...
