New York

I'm finally here. After a fun summer spending time with friends and family, it was time to say goodbye. Leaving was bittersweet, as I was excited to come out here to New York, but sad to leave Utah.

I'm getting settled in, but it will take me a little while to get used to it all. Everything seems so fast-paced here. I'm already getting the hang of the subways, and I've met quite a few people in my apartment building already. I also met some really cool people at church today, and I'm going to be okay (stop worrying Mom!).

Tomorrow I head down to campus for the first time (is it really a campus? I think it's more of a collection of buildings), and I'm looking forward to touring the area a little bit. I'll post some pictures once I've had a chance to go out and actually take some--I was going to walk around for a bit today, but I ended up taking a much-needed nap.

And on a slightly different note, I got a fortune cookie during my last week in Utah that said: "A solid challenge will bring forth your finest abilities." Nothing fancy, I know, but it still made me smile as I thought of moving out here to start grad school.

So excited! Welcome to the East Coast! I'm down in DC, but up in NY often so I'll hit you up when I head your direction or let me know if you venture the couple hours South to my neighborhood...
