Over Christmas break, my family and I drove to Denver. Early, early on New Year’s morning, (like 4 am – the Faj Mahal was chapped), I flew from Denver to New York City to interview with New York City Teaching Fellows. (It’s a program where you teach for 2 years in a low-income school while doing a Masters simultaneously.)
Also, got accepted to the program. Moving to NY in June. Despite not being able to sleep outside every night, I'm so excited I could die. Also I feel really good about it (!!!!), which is huge! But more on that later.
Annnyways, despite having a major POLAR VORTEX, NY was a dream. Oh, New York, you’re everything you’re cracked up to be – smelly subway cars, polar vortex, no where to use the bathroom, and all.
Here are a million pictures and highlights from my trip:
Caught in a late-night blizzard in Brooklyn after my interview.

|Seeing the Martins for the first time since before my mission. !! And they walked the Brooklyn Bridge with me despite frost-bitey weather.|
|Uniglo with the Martins. (Ahhh, that gold coat!)|
