Smaller Portions

I have to face facts that I will not always be able to write long, thought out, highly polished posts while I am juggling business school and an internship. And so, I will stop writing pieces of drafts, and just put out my thoughts as they are.

Today I am in New York. I've already had my amusing anecdote moment: I'm staying at my husband's aunt's apartment, and last night, I looked it up in Google maps with my husband to figure out how to get there from Penn Station. I put in an address on East 38th Street and jotted it down on my itinerary, and he confirmed it for me.

Now the address at that very number of East 38th Street is a Cat Care Center. I love cats as much as the next crazy cat lady, but what I really wanted was to set my bags down. My husband didn't answer his cell phone, so I called his father. His father promptly pointed out that Auntie Ala lives on East 58th Street. I was not enthused about carrying my heavier-by-the-minute load 20 more blocks (I'm also carrying around my laptop and some homework to do over break), so I hailed a cab.

Now I'm going to take a quick nap and then explore the city. I've never been here all on my own, so there's an air of adventure to this trip. Please leave any recommendations for offbeat places to visit in the comments!
