pop bottles in the ice, like a blizzard

we bought a 14-dollar neon green, plastic sled and were sorely disappointed when the snow didn't reach the top of our knee caps.  we (i) participated in a columbia undergrad snow ball fight, if participating means you threw snowballs at strangers that didn't throw them back.  we ate cumin-lamb burgers and sipped cafe au lait as the winds blew by and wondered where we'd be this time, next year. 

"the noise can be deafening and the crowds exhausting but it's all balanced with moments of sheer awe.  there's something really calming in knowing you're but a tiny tiny speck working within some much larger version of the world.  new york never lets you forget that and i find that very soothing."

warm, here.

{orl --> mia}

{mia --> death}

i've been staying with my sister the past week and a half in sunny miami beach, and it has been pretty glorious.  her friends have been asking her after learning of my stay, ".... isn't she bored?" because all my sister and her friends do is sit in the library knee deep in rheumatology medical notes.  do they really think i would be doing anything different if i were back home in orlando?  (i.e. watching every episode of the past season of top chef, any movie on netflix that has a pretty cover, each painstakingly long episode of the bachelor.... and applying for jobs).  the answer is nein, and the only difference would be that a pretty little puppy would be sitting on my lap and it would be 10 degrees colder.  you do the math. 

tomorrow, i fly from the warm 80 degree weather that i have been enjoying to a temperature that will probably fall somewhere in the tweens.  if my presence on social media (or my hands) fall off, you will know why.

happy year.
