Hudson Yards and The Vessel

I am back in New York after finishing my junior year at Wake Forest University.

Wednesday afternoon was well spent with my two best friends in New York City!

Whenever we get together, usually twice a year, after the end of the school year and at Christmas, we love to explore the city and try a new restaurant!

I heard all about the new indoor mall, Hudson Yards by the Hudson River between 9thand 12thAve and between W38thSt. and W29thSt.

I had to go check it out. I also saw that the new art sculpture or tourist attraction, the Vessel was available to be climbed for free!
Click here to get your tickets! It was something new and different to discover.

We then walked to B&H Photo on the way over to dinner so I could purchase a new Canon lens!
The auto focus on my 18-55mm lens broke only after two years. It was upsetting because I loved that lens and it broke in the middle of our photoshoot on the quad at formal. But after taking over 30,000 pictures with the lens and taking it all over Europe with me, it was well worth all the money. 
I am very excited about my new lens purchase, Canon 18-135mm, and cannot wait to use it on my trip to Chicago next week!

After my early birthday present purchase, the three of us walked to 45thSt. between 5thand 6thfor Greek food! I found this delicious new restaurant on Open Table called Fournos Theophilos!
My friends and I talked for hours and I enjoyed my last real meal for a while before I got my four wisdom teeth removed the following morning!

Can’t wait for more adventures with these two this summer!

Last Day of Class of Junior Year 2019

I can’t believe it; I finished my 3rd year of college!
I have 3 papers, 1 project and 1 take-home test before I leave Wake Forest for the summer and return home to New York. 
I will then officially be a college senior.

This semester I was in class for 70 days. 
A total of 14.5 credit hours a week.
6 classes.
About 217.5 hours of class in total. 
At least 400 or more hours of studying and doing homework this semester.
0 snow days.
2 chorus concerts.
3 field trips.
5 notebooks.
30 Pilates classes.
30 spin classes.
15 plays read for my English classes.
3,920,000 mL of water I consumed.
0 all nighters.
6 textbooks.
15 Kappa Delta chapter meetings.
1 5K run.
1 hike.
1 day in Charlotte.
1 night of karaoke.
27 blog posts plus this one, 28.

Too many laughs, too many tears, too many quad pictures and too many good conversations and times with my friends to count.

This semester was amazing. Still doesn’t top last semester in France, but I still had a ball!

2 more semesters and 1 more year to go before I am a Wake Forest University alum.
