Today it snowed. And snowed. And then snowed some more.
I had already planned to walk from west 125th (where I live) down to west 4th (where one of my friends lives) today. As an added benefit I had snow. Luscious, glorious snow.
So I walked, and meandered, and traipsed, and loped around New York in the beautiful snowfall today. It was stunning, and my hair became encrusted with snow and ice, as did my eyebrows and eyelashes. I look quite amusing and drew some smiles from fur-coated people wandering near Central Park and Columbus Circle.
Lots of fur-coats in the ritzier parts of town when it snows.
It was a glorious day. Invigorating, breathtaking, and everything I'd ever imagined New York to be in a snow storm.
Other than today, I'd have tons of stories to tell, but most of them involve either a) my work, b) food, or c) strange things I've seen on the subway, none of which are very interesting.
All I know is that tomorrow I'm going to go to Chinatown, eat some great Chinese, and enjoy the liberty and luxury that is a non-school Sunday. Since I have nothing to study, I can now truly enjoy the weekends. This is soon to end, however.
Oh, and in the school application/admissions news - I have heard from 2 schools so far - Michigan (back in November) and University of Chicago (just yesterday) - admitted to both law schools so far. Now just waiting for Ph.D. programs and other law schools to respond.
I will try to update this. No more guarantees. But every now and then I will stop by to let my audience know how New York is treating me. That much you can rely on.
