At keeping up my blog. Which, by the way, is what I'm doing at work. Learning how to make blogs enhance websites. So generally if you want to make money off you're blog, you're suppose to update it like twice a day. But I'm not trying to make money off my blog, so I guess it's OK!!

OK, well, not much has gone on this week. I've gone to work. I did meet my friend Kira for drinks at the bar. Sr Fabregas (my new fav arsenal player) contributed two goals to a record tying performance of 7 goals in a champions league game. Then I went to the store and Kira an and I watched the first half of the ManU game.

It's finally fall here in the city. I really like it. I need some winter clothes, but those come with paychecks, so I think I'll manage.

And that's all I have for now. By the way, I do not choose the pink background, it's the closest to what I want. My dream is to have it in cream and dark maroon and dark orange, so we''ll see when I can get to it.

Yes, it has indeed been confirmed. As you probably know, I have an undying love for my favorite band. They're backburner, but, yeah, it's Hanson. So, not one of the incentives I had on my list to move to New York. So after I signed my lease, I remember that I think they live in New York. Well, thanks to home makeover on abc, it's CONFIRMED!! Which, I truly believe it's my destiny to run into them on the subway. Just to say hi, you guys have rocked since I was 12 and a photo. You know. After that happens, just like 3 more things and I can truly die a happy woman.

Other than that, my first weekend in New York has been pretty eventful. It included auburn football at the auburn alumni bar, penn state boys, my cool german friend, vanilla lattes, and plans to watch the champions league this week (c;

and goodness, I've never wanted Texas A&M to win so bad in my life. BEAT FRIGGEN KU PLEASE!!

Really expensive concert shirts

In high school I always but a teeshirt at every concert I went to. I quickly quit when I went to college. So this summer, I talked myself into buying the Augustana shirt for three months ahead of time. It was perfect. So I go, see that the shirt is $30 and try to talk myself out of it. When finally bought the shirt I got handed a memory stick. With 8 songs I didn't have. Let me tell you, I still listen to them everyday. I even start to lip sink on the train to "Stars and Boulevards." If I start singing out loud ever, I'll let you know.

Anyways I saw "Dan In Real Life" tonight for free. I would have paid the $11.50 New York price to see it anyways. Simply amazing, the best movie I've seen in years.

I also contribute to a really smart blog. So you should read it.

I sadly tricked them into calling me Jennifer at work.

It's been too long!

So when I created this on Friday, I meant to post at least three times by now! But I haven't. So I'll fix that now.

So, New York. I'm back and not cheating and going home this weekend. This week is much better than last. But your new first week anywhere isn't any good usually!

So yesterday was one of those days I knew that New York was the right choice for me. So since I live north of all of the action on Manhattan, there's really no good grocery stores. So I went in search of one. First, I took the express train (I didn't know how to take it before yesterday!) and decided to get off at 125th. Big stop, maybe a huge grocery store.

So I start walking around. A cute little woman made a comment, so I decided to ask her where the biggest grocery store was around . "well, around here there aren't many big ones. Oh! Go right up Amsterdam through the projects and it's right there!" I mean, where else would I get told to walk through the projects! I love it. So I just decided to walk around for fun. Turns out I was in the heart of Harlem. I'd never been there. I could have met Jermain DuPree!! Not that I know who he is. I also saw the Apollo. Then I came home and my roommate, her friend, and I decided to go to a Broadway play. Evidently, if you have your student ID (I do!) you can go right before the show starts and get the tickets 1/2 off! But we didn't go b/c it was still to expensive and had Mexican food instead.

So. It's working out. Slowly but surely. (c;

New York, New York

Well, I guess I should document my experiences that are going to come out of the city. So that's why I started this google blog. Xanga just wasn't doing it for me anymore.

So instead of my story of my first week in new york and being a real working woman.......I have a message for all of my confused friends on the east coast (because my oh my there are a lot)

K-State stands for Kansas State. And no, we're NOT the jayhawks.

Thanks for taking note!!
