“I was born in a small town…”


I grew up in the MOST picturesque place EVER. See this beach here – it was a 4 minute walk from my childhood home – and I swam there often. Now, I live even closer to the lake (but farther from the beach). This little community has, at most maybe 400 people living in it – and more than half of them only live there during the summer.

When you left your bike outside at night, it would still be there the next day.

Well, guess where I’m going to be this summer? Not anywhere near this lake, that’s for starters.

Here’s a hint.

Guess where that is?  You’re thinking maybe the closest large city to where I am (I go to school in Bloomington, IN, remember)… Indianapolis?

Nope.  Not Chicago either.

I’m going to be in New York City!  OMG!!!  New York City!!  I’ve never even visited there before!!!  EEEK!!!

Ok, so the details.  I’m currently an RA, right… and I want to work in colleges in the future… and now I have an internship at Columbia University!  It’s a really great internship because I’ll be getting some new, very marketable skills.  And room and some food is free – and I’ll be getting paid for this FULL time position!  I am so, so, incredibly excited!

But I’m also sorta scared.  I have only one relative who lives in the city – an uncle.  I know no one else.  But I’m also really excited!  A number of my friends are going to come and visit me!

Is anyone out there from NYC?  I’m excited to go to the awesome yarn stores (Like The Point, and Purl), but does anyone know what the closest yarn store to there is?

I am so, so, incredibly excited!
