So yesterday was all about settling in to my dorm and NYC itself. I slept in late (first time all summer), unpacked some, and then wondered around for a few hours getting my NYU ID, shopping a little (not too much lol), and getting a new memory card/internet cable for my computer. Luckily and dangerously enough, we are right next to the world's only 24-hour Best Buy and a two story Forever 21. Dangerous? Yes. Awesome? Most definitely.
I eventually made it back to the dorms to hang out with my awesome roommates. I went and got a "first day of work" manicure with Anita, which comes with a complementary shoulder massage (heck yeah!). Then on our way back I had my second celebrity sighting - no other than Corbin Blue was walking down Broadway where he is staring in "In the Heights", which I got to see with my dad when I was here for my interview. Dad nicely refers to him as cordon bleu and yes, that did flash through my head when I saw him, thanks pops. Anita will tell you I gawked a little bit but hey, who can fault a girl?
Then we came back and hung out for a few hours with Laura and her boyfriend Nick, which was really relaxing and a good way to bond some more before I went to bed because I started my internship the next day.
I think the best part was that I really got a much better feel for the city. I got to explore, figure out what restaurants I want to check out, and never even got lost! That is a huge accomplishment for me (even with an iPhone) and I hope everyone is very proud! I'm also not nearly as overwhelmed by the city now and it might not be AS obvious that I'm still technically a tourist.
Tomorrow I'll tell you all about my first day at Billboard so make sure to read and comment! Love you guys!
Song of the Day:
"Ocean Wide" by The Afters
Solely because I like it. Some songs will just be random but I think that makes them even better.
