Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone! I hope yours was as enjoyable as mine.
I didn’t travel this holiday but I did spend the day with my cousin and his family who live about 30 minutes north of NYC. It was great seeing my aunt and uncle and playing with my cousin’s little ones as well. I’m very thankful I have family close by to have spent the holiday with. I’m also very thankful to have such wonderful friends (new and old) and family and of course, that we are all in good health. I could really go on and on with this list but I won’t. I have a lot I’m grateful for and I know a lot of it I take for granted more often than not. And I’m thankful that I’m privileged enough as an American to not even realize some of the things I take for granted. Read this: 35 Things Americans Should Be Grateful For – But Aren’t
Since I didn’t travel this weekend, I had plenty of me time. Friday, I worked a lot on my grad school applications (they are due tomorrow!) followed by dinner and hanging out with a friend. Saturday, I went for a leisurely run with my ATEA teammate, Amanda in Central Park. It was so warm I was sweating in my tank top.
Sunday sure was a Fun Day! (too corny?) I finally made it to MoMA for the Picasso Sculpture exhibit. It was amazing! I recommend for everyone who can to make their way out to see it (check out the photos on my instagram). And I saw the movie, Brooklyn. Which I also highly recommend. It really struck a chord with me; I could relate to the moving away from home and how sometimes it feels greener on the other side (aka back home). I’d say more but I don’t want to spoil it for you.
Well I need to polish off my remaining two grad school apps before bowling with my office tonight (Yeah, my office is that cool that we bowl together!) So to keep you occupied, here are some other links to help you get through the holiday season:
