Hello again! I am back in the city after a lovely Thanksgiving break. I got to do a lot over the break but it felt so short! While in Portland I...
Took embarassing pictures of my Dad.
Had a delicious Thanksgiving meal with my family. It was a great night.
Saw the Ducks beat Arizona at Autzen Stadium. Go Ducks!
Got to see my dog, Lucy, who I miss so much at school!
I also did some running, some Barre3 classes, shopping, and more. It was so nice to be home. Can't wait for winter break in less than 3 weeks!
But then it was back to NYC. I took a redeye on Sunday night so I could optimize my time at home. But the flights back and the connection in Chicago at about 4 AM was rough. At the airport though I got to use the cute Hannukah present Jenna made me. Thanks Jenna!
|Can you guys make out Dennis Dixon on there?|
Since Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas decorations are up in full force. I think it's hilarious that they sell Christmas trees on the sidewalks from stands here. It's like walking through a mini forest every few blocks. But you can tell they definitely sell a lot more tiny trees here because of the ridiculously small size of most people's apartments here in this expensive city.
My RA's had this sign up outside their door. A good reminder, right?
And now it is the first few days of Hannukah! I put up my little menorah, and laid out some gelt and dreidels. My roommate also put up a cute little tiny Christmas tree. I decided to have a Hannukah party last night and it was quite fun. Pictures of the party to come in the next post.
|Shhh...don't report me for lighting candles in the dorm.|
Since I have been here I've also gone on some runs and tried out my mom's super cool garmin. It uses satellites to track your location, distance, pace, etc. I did a 5k on Thursday and 5 miles on the treadmill watching the Ducks beat the Beavers today! Woohoo! We're going to Arizona baby!
I also had a little incident involving my phone...let's just say dropping your iPhone is not a good thing to do.
So now it's Saturday night. I just got done cooking giant batches of veggie soup and chili to eat throughout the week. Not very exciting. Sorry for the super random post. Hope everyone is having a good weekend! See you all soon!
