I got off the plane, got my bags, got a taxi, and went straight to my building in Brooklyn. Once I was checked in I walked up to my room, opened the door, and saw a MESS. My jaw dropped. There was crap everywhere. Turns out my roommate has been living here since the beginning of summer and was not informed by my building that I would be arriving (most likely because of the hurricane). Now that the room is cleaned up it's not bad at all. My roommate seems pretty cool. He's a finance major and is working on Wall Street every day and is going to school here as well so he's not around much. I don't see us having any problems living together--he's pretty chill.

I headed back to my apartment, realized I didn't have any dress pants for some reason, (they're still MIA) so I headed BACK to Times Square to look for a pair. Well that's when I ended up getting lost, walked around for forever, ended up on the L to some shady part of Brooklyn, and didn't make it home until 11pm. I am still sore because I walked around for about 10 hours my first day. Oops...

Anyway... I didn't want to ask a thousand questions on my first day so I don't have a whole lot to say about it yet. Like I said, pretty uneventful first day. But i'm so excited for what is to come next. I don't work again until Tuesday because of the long holiday weekend so I'll hopefully get a chance to ask more questions and find out what else i'll be doing. I will make sure to blog again then to update you all.
After work I was so super exhausted I came home, unpacked the rest of my boxes that arrived, and chilled for the rest of the day. Last night I explored Brooklyn some more but didn't go too far because the blisters on my feet are not okay with that. I found a Häagen-Dazs store down the street which is going to be really hard to ignore during my diet...
Well this blog is getting a little long-winded so I apologize. I didn't get to post until now because somehow in the excitement of me leaving MO I managed to leave my MacBook charger at my mother's house and just now got it in the mail. I'm taking it easy today. Not going anywhere, just recovering. I've slept in, taken a bath, took a nap, went and bought a bottle of wine and some lunch and plan on drinking the bottle and getting ready for tomorrow!!! I'll keep you updated with anything else exciting I do and post some more pics below!
