It’s officially SPRING BREAK! My last spring break before I graduate and enter the “real world” where no such breaks exist. I should be doing something crazy, somewhere exotic right?
Not quite. Since my spring break happens to be the same as my 16-year-old sister’s break and I figure I should be getting used to a “grown-up life” where I can’t escape and go home every chance I get (not that I would), I told her to come visit me in New York to join me for adventures. Besides, she has never been to or explored New York before. Shocking, I know.
Some people just do not like the city- she happens to be one of those people saying “It’s smelly, there’s too many people, and I’m scared I’m going to get mobbed/kidnapped.” She claims to be quite adamant about her position; I think she has watched too much CSI.
That being said, I’m determined to change her mind about the city before she leaves at the end of this week.
“There needs to be more trees. There’s not enough trees” is one of the first things she said to me when we started walking around the city. Luckily for her, the Macy’s Flower Show started showing March 24 and I took this as an opportunity, and reason, to go for the first time and take in the sight. Call me touristy.
