New York for Northerners

Something good is coming. I can feel it in the air; the sun has returned and I’m listening to the Killers again and dancing when no one is home. Running and running in the warm spring air and feeling good and feeling alive. Things are about to happen fast and crazy. Before it hits, let’s finish recapping the last few months.

Let’s jump to the end of the Fall semester. Who should arrive on the East Coast one December night, but my very best friend Tor Edvin from Norway! I was half-dead, but it was glorious. He was there! My worlds were colliding!

Tor Edvin was there for finals week, and got the chance to see me in full-on RISD mode. We went to a Pancake Party at Charlotte’s house, to which I brought a frying pan and was therefore ready for anything. We made a pancake in the shape of a camera. Not kidding.

After my final powerpoint presentation at school, we hopped on a bus to New York City to stay with Katie and Steve, dearest friends from Maine Media. There was instantly amazing food and celebration.

And beer.

As a Christmas gift, we had gotten tickets to see the Phantom of the Opera on Broadway! This involved yet another trip through Times Square.

And with that, the Northern kids left NYC for somewhere more familiar. It snowed and snowed and I was so tired I thought I might die, but we made it. Our flight was delayed majorly and it took us about 36 hours to get to Alaska, but we got there. And then… well. You’ll see. Then there was Alaska.
