I'll Make It Anywhere


I spent half of this past weekend in good ol' New York City. Recently, I feel like I'm always there either visiting friends or searching for jobs; but this time I was going to be doing some service with Circle K. Even though I graduated I'm still technically a member until the fall rolls around so they can't say goodbye to me yet! We all met up in Central Park on Friday before splitting up into teams for Saturday's service projects. My friend Saad was nice enough to snap some shots for me while things were still getting settled. Despite all the times I've been, the beauty of Central Park never fails to amaze me. There's always a new area to discover and its beauty constantly evolves with each season.

Later that night I met up with my two friends Teddy and Rachel to hit up some tiny (literally) but amazing bars in his area. But beforehand we snuck up to the roof of a nearby building and I saw the most breathtaking 360 degree view of the city. We were at the bottom of Harlem and seeing Midtown from afar and all the bridges - there are few things as beautiful as that. You're surrounded entirely by artificial stars and there is an entire glow surrounding midtown as if it's a galaxy all on it's own.

On Saturday morning I woke up at the break of dawn in order to make the 2 1/2 hour journey from Harlem to Rockaway Beach in Queens. I'm impressed that I was able to make it in time with all those transfers (weekend subway service changes are frustrating). My group volunteered at the Bike Parade which featured local residents in crazy outfits and decorated bikes. It made me wish I had my bike with me as well! Then we went all the way back to Harlem (whew!) to beautify the Dog Park in the St. Nicholas Park. Doing that made me really want a dog of my own, specifically a Husky.

I guess this entire weekend has just made me realize I really want to live in NYC, own a bike, and raise a dog. Challenge accepted.
