Well the holiday season is upon us, and I hope everyone has had a few cups of cheer. New Yorkers are certainly no strangers to celebrating the holiday season, and just like everything else that New Yorkers do, they celebrate bigger and better than anyone else. Mady and I attended our first ever Santacon. Santacon: a congregation of Santa Clauses'. Seen around NYC was somewhere around 50,000 people dressed as Santa or some other type of holiday character walking drunkenly down the streets. As you can imagine, there was plenty for us to be jolly about while participating in this wonderful tradition.
I also had another noteworthy event this holiday season to celebrate, my 25th birthday! The day was celebrated by making splendid merriment with friends and loved ones as I was able to reflect on my past quarter century (and I must say, much wisdom has been gained, and you would be wise to have me share). Ice skating in Central Park, dinner and drinks with friends (and of course being showered with gifts and spoiled rotten), is the perfect way to celebrate a winter birthday! Many thanks to everyone that helped make my day especially special, you know who you are!
Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

C here, another successful week gone by. Lee and I were spotted around town checking out concerts in the park, salsa dancing, taking lessons from the pros sitting next to us, attending church dances (yes, they are just as awful, if not worse, than they were when I was 14), and meeting cute musicians at a local lounge called the Living Room. Check out the Koren Ensemble on Facebook (I'm in LOVE with them).
Well it's time for me to make room for the arrival of a new roommate. Next week will bring the debut of a new, New Yorker. Moving to New York can be a scary thing, and is a major life change. But they say, if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. So here's to sticking out the tough times, making it work, and enjoying the ride. So, who is this newcomer, you ask. That's one secret I'll never tell, at least not yet ;)

Gossip Girl, here. Hello, Hello, from the outskirts of reality. Last weekend I had the opportunity to go camping with some new friends along the Hudson River. It's so good to get out of the city for a bit, and get in touch with the nature girl buried deep inside of me. Sharing stories, laughs, spirits, tents, and personal space is a nice break from the stresses of day to day life. But all good things must come to an end, and it's back to the daily grind. This is the harsh reality of life. And anyone who forgets that is in for a rude awakening. So here's to the next week of creative problem solving, putting out fires, and kicking ass.
