Ladies and gents, and now what you’ve all been waiting for!
I took a break from posting any entries on my blog, but I’ve been trying to keep with all of you guys! So many things going on. Especially since my semester starts tomorrow. Ack!
Anyway, let’s get to the nitty gritty of this post, shall we?
So as I mentioned in my previous post, my trip started off on a crazy foot. Crazy indeed! Luckily, I was able to refresh myself when I finally arrived at my friend’s, Liz, place. After that, her loverboy came over and we just walked around her neighborhood in Brooklyn – Williamsburg.
As we were walking around, we just tore pieces off the loaf of ciabatta. So good!
We walked through a couple parks and decided to sit by a softball game. Liz is in love with every dog in the world, so she was having a great time at the park. If anyone knows of any pet adoption agencies in New York, please let me know!
After walking around and just hanging out till there was no more sun, we came home and Liz got to working on dinner. She’s Italian so of course she made pasta!
After dinner Liz invited some friends over and we played this game called for Botticelli literally 6 hours. It’s this crazy guessing game, but we didn’t play it the “real” way. We didn’t use personal pronouns at all, but it could pretty much be any word we could think of. Later in the night, Liz’s friend – which she claims to be her hottest friend from the batch – came over. Oh my!!! He was so good-looking and reminded me of a hot pirate. I actually flirted a bit, which is unusual for me. I usually have a hard time even looking a guy I’m interested in, in the eyes.
The next day we headed to a free concert out by the Waterfront. But before I left, I whipped up something really fast.
You get a scoop of ice cream for $1. They have vegan flavors as well! I tried the vegan chocolate chip cookie dough since it’s Liz’s favorite. It was so good and the place’s decor was endearing. They had little funny signs everywhere.
It was kind of annoying getting into this place. I had to dump out my water and we all ate our apples. Luckily, I was able to hide my bar at the bottom of my bag. When we went to get in again, one of the security guards swore he recognized me from somewhere. I told him I wasn’t from New York and then he introduced himself. Sounds like he was just trying to pick me up!
We played Botticelli for another couple of hours. Shaun got us hooked! After we were over sitting, we went to get $1 pizza slices.
Later on we went into the city and walked around Union Square. Of course we made a stop at Trader Joe’s. I’ve never seen a Trader Joe’s that was as busy! And I was also surprised that the prices were just as low as they usually are. So after we each got out groceries we headed back home.
So guys, that’s it for the first two days of my stay in New York. Trust me, it got more exciting as the week progressed. I did my fair share of exploring, and by the end of this trip I was ready to call this city my home! Thank goodness it’s not too far, so I can visit more often. That is… if school doesn’t get too crazy. Stay tuned for Part 2!
