An old man & Speedo's

What does one clueless blonde bring
to a house party? a ridiculous sounding drink
 and much more classier cristal. 
While everyone is out celebrating the end of a semester, I'm dreading the continuation of mine. Prolonged until the 24th of May. These days it seems as though I can't log onto Facebook without getting a new notification of graduation, engagement, or pregnancy.

While it's a sheer improvement from when I would get notifications of song lyrics, drama and break ups (back in high school), it's also a clear example that I'm getting old. Or at least feel old.

Although my expected graduation isn't until 2014, I'm eager to complete the semester and ace my final exams (fingers crossed!). One of the reasons being, is the beautiful 80 degree weather that we had yesterday (or teaser), leaving me with red raw skin a base tan, and some new friends.

Unbeknown to me young people do live in my building. I met these two girls (around the same age of me) who go to FIT. So as we met one another, witnessed an old man stroll in his very tight speedos, and chatted about summer, we ended up exchanging numbers.

Yumminess at Red Tomato!
At around 5ish Angelo (my families driver) drove Barnby and I home to Long Island. Barnby sat like a king, watched like a king, and then sleept like a king, while I had road rage at the two hour traffic jam ahead of us, and tried to distract myself watching The Carrie Diaries on my iPhone. Which ultimately led to me feeling car sick. All in all-quite the wonderful experience.

After sleeping in until 10ish, we then went to      Red Tomato for lunch (which has the most delicious margarita pizza ever) and then I took my sister birthday shopping. Except somehow the only person who brought things was me (typical!). So i promised my sister a Manhattan shopping trip around the time of her birthday later this month.

So to conclude the post- I'm going to my first college "house party" tonight (close your jaw). Eager to experience and write about the night ahead of me, I'm currently babysitting until I leave. Quite the pre-gaming experience I know! But I promise to write all about it. The good, the bad and the inevitable.

See in Manhattan, college parties are replaced with clubs, kegs are replaced with champagne, and anything flat is not worn, or in the case of drinking-drunk.


  1. Thanks for providing this information! I hope you do ace all your exams. Places to cool out will be in demand every year as the temperature rises and people start to get more uncomfortable.

    Even a few hours spent cooling out in water can greatly improve your perspective. While in some areas there might be a breeze to help keep everyone comfortable, in some areas it is just hot and dry. Older people and very young children are especially in danger of heat stroke, and other conditions that come with a sharp rise in the temperature. So, expect the speedos.
