I left my camera connectory thinger at home, so for now you'll get no pictures from me!

For now though, I'll give you this picture I just took- me in my room with the sun coming in to my left- and give you a list of thoughts just like Mel did!

1- I really really like my new apartment.

2-Though I miss the Union Square skyline with the ol' ESB in the distance, but I do love seeing the bridges!

3-The Stanton Social is my new favorite restaurant in New York City! Bar none!

4- My hair is always more curly here in NY.

5- I am psyched for Gaelic!

6- I need to workout this semester- starting tomorrow. Go ahead, ask me about it!

7- Staci and I have both pledged to cook more... we'll see! If you have any great, easy recipes, leave them in the comments!

8- You have approximately 9 months to come to New York before I move away and you've lost the best excuse you've ever had, not to mention the coolest tour guide! And don't forget I'm gone for at least a month of that time for Winter Break! Make your reservations now- as long as I'm here, you're welcome!

9- I thought being engaged here would be weird. It is a bit strange, but more than anything I think it just intensifies my excitement to graduate!

10- I have a new internship possibility-- we'll see. I am and will be totally content without one which tells you that God still works miracles in the heart.

11- Living in the East Village is going to be super neato.

12- I'm going to stop now, but my last thought is this: not having a routine makes things stretch out and seem interminable... I'm looking forward to having some idea of what life will be like day to day once I have a schedule!

I'll try to keep ya'll posted. For a while it's going to be sans pictures like in the old fashioned days... I'm sure we'll all make it through this technological drought!

You are so perdy. Thanks for the 45 minute chat this weekend, it was much needed. It was great to catch up on what is going on, and to hear you got back to NY safely.

actually, here's an easy one that everyone i've made it for seems to like. i call them "green fajitas"

1 jalepeno
1 bunch cilantro
3 cloves garlic
equal parts olive
oil and water

blend those in a food processor until its thin enough to pour.

marinate flank steaks in that for at least 1 hour, no more than 2 days. ;) throw them on the grill/forman for the desired amount of time. (red=1.5min per side, cooked=2+ per side)

on grill/forman grill: 1-2 green/red peppers (how you like it) and one onion. salt and pepper to taste.

then after that, fix it like you like any fajitas. cheese, sour cream, rice, beans, salsa, etc.
