I don't know why I thought I would be a better blogger here then when I was home. But so sorry I haven't updated anything. But here is the short recap of my experiences it has been great. (real informative right) I have seen and do so much already but there is still so much to see. So for now you should read my friends blog to see what I have been up to, just replace her name for mine and you are all caught up. No really you will be, she is the pro bono photographer for our little group and takes amazing photos.
Here is her blog: http://lettersfromlauren.blogspot.com/
And then I will work on being better at blogging.

I'm here!!! I landed at 5:22 a.m. (that would be 3:22 a.m. in Orem time). I crashed at my very generous friend's apartment for a few hours and then decided to get out there and see NY. So I first took the subway into Time's Square because it is always good to go there if you are feeling like a tourist. But as I go to pull out my camera I realized I never checked the batteries and my camera is dead. Oh, well right? We have all seen pictures of Time's Square before.
Then once I stop at the visitor's center to get a map of the subway I figure I will try to go to Ladies Home Journal, but I didn't think to write down the address all I remembered that it was close to Grand Central, so stopped by there and then decided to stop by Bryant Park because it is the cool place to eat lunch. So after those great adventures it was only about 2:00.
I didn't know where to go next so headed back up to a safe place of Time's Square again, and watched a movie (I know it is ridiculous but it is my break from school and I didn't feel as alone in an empty theater.)
After seeing Jake Gyllenhaal in Source Code. I did what I do best and shopped around the stores. Then after all that excitement I went back to my friends apartment.
Tomorrow I will have a plan or places to see and I will have pictures too.

Internship: Check, Plane ticket: Check, Apartment: Check. After hours, days, and a month of searching. I have finally found a place to live in NYC!
Here are all the details about it: it's a two bedroom, (with 3 beds, so none of us have to sleep on the couch) and two bathroom (this is almost too great, because I hate sharing!), apartment on the fifth floor of this cute complex in Greenwich Village.
I love the ivy on the building!
Here is the shared bedroom, I am planning on taking the Master bedroom because I did all the work to find this wonderful place.
This is the corner kitchen (which might be small to some but fine with me because I don't cook very often) that is attached to the living room below.
Living room with a pull out couch bed.
Another great thing about this apartment is that is about two blocks away from Magnolia Bakery! So I plan on devouring their cupcakes just like Carrie and Miranda.

In class we have been learning about basic HTML codes, which is what the internet is made of, these crazy typings of numbers and images put together to make pictures. It is a little mind boggling to think about. But anyways, with all of my knowledge of HTML I figured I could make my blog really great.
Which lead me to hours on the internet looking at other people's blogs and Web sites of free backgrounds for blogs and all that other blogging stuff. But after all those hours of putting new backgrounds on my blog, and trying to change the code so that it would look the way I wanted it to look. The only thing that I was able to change/fix was how to take out the annoying little advertisement that are in the top left hand corner of the blog, to say where you got the blog background from. To say the least, I was a little disappointed that my newly learned coding skills could only get me that far.
But keep checking back because I am not giving up on figuring out how to use HTLM to get me an amazing blog design. So just you wait.

Ok I am so over carrying the banner. It is not a fine life and I don't feel as free as a fish. I have lost my good attitude about it because I have realized that I am leaving my house at 6:45 a.m., to have the paper delivered by 7:30 which is ridiculous.
Today I didn't even get to school on time, because I was dealing with the mouse issue* and a guy was waiting by the empty NY Times holder, just waiting for the paper. Really? Really? He had to be waiting?
Well only 2 more days of this torture, but at least today I remembered scissors.
*mouse issue with have to be blogged about at another time when the issue isn't as traumatic as it is now.
