This past week I was lucky enough to be able to travel to New York City with family. My mom and I met up with my aunt and cousins to spend a few days shopping and celebrating since we all have birthdays around the same time. It was so exciting being able to wonder around and explore a city that I hadn’t been to a whole lot. I went a few years ago for my 16th birthday and again my senior year of high school for a class trip but this time it was nice not to have any sort of specific agenda. Every morning when we woke up we planned out what we wanted to do and just went for it!
We left right after I finished finals and stayed until Wednesday night (thankfully just barely missing the cold storm). I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my 21st than with family that I wasn’t able to see very often in a fun city! It also gave me a little peak into what I would want if I were to potentially move there once I’m done with school. I hope you guys are finishing up (and dominating) your finals and kicking off winter break with exciting plans as well!
