June is bustin’ out all over

Name that musical!!

Happy June everyone!

Sense my last post, things have been running pretty smoothly…work and days off. The Rain Room has been running well, they got the leaks fixed and so far it has not malfunctioned again too much. And the lines have been growing every day, especially as the weather has gotten nicer. On that note- hello a week of nearly 90 degree weather and sunny! Ok I’ll admit, it’s been a little hot, but I’m loving it so much more then the cold rainy 50s we had earlier. Been drinking a TON of water and such on the job to stay hydrated.

And look!! There is me at work with my fabulous red statement coat!

This past Friday was my last “free Friday” for the month (our schedules change for June) and I made cupcakes for my team of coworkers. I enjoyed baking them and relaxing before work that day, and I know they enjoyed them after shift. 🙂

I’ve been getting many compliments on my outfits at work recently, I like that… Haha! Sometimes when I’m here in NYC and at work I feel like I should have a camera crew or photographer following my to take awesome city and adventure photos! Finding the right shoes for this city is still something I’m working on, but I’m waiting until the few pairs I have now totally die before I get some new ones… Always keeping my eyes open though and asking around what different people like to wear.

I had Monday, Memorial Day, off from work and I took myself down to Madison Square Park and the Shake Shack again for a milk shake and a little walk around. It was a lovely day and it was nice to get out of the apartment but not be at work.

I’m looking forward to continued exploration of the city and taking advantage of some of the free events in the parks and other summer events. I’ve been here for almost one month and as I’m still loving the city, I think it’s almost time to start looking for a more permanent job and place to live. Things have been working so well, hopefully that will continue!

Now, can I have a little sentimental moment? Please and thank y’all 🙂

As much as I love New York, there are so many things I am missing about home and Atlanta. Some things are sort of trivial– YDFM and good cheep coffee, decent prices in basic items in general!, fuzzy puppy dog and someone to take on walks, my car, pools and tanning being easy to access (which I really need to work on!!), my room, my own space, and my level of clean, running with Big Peach, or running 4 mi. a day in general, family, friends…. The list could go on. I miss having someone to love and spend time with… Someone special I can talk to and trust, go out on the town with or stay in with. I always see lovely couples on the train, in line at RR, or on the street and well, that’s just something else I miss. If I’m being too sentimental for any of you I’m sorry… But this is a side of things that I can’t forget about… In all my writing and time here, I have hardly cried or outwardly missed home, New York is amazing and work is wonderful, but home friends love are things I have missed and have the right too.

On a slightly different note, you know when you hear a new song that you really like, you can’t get it out of your head, and the you find yourself listening to it all the time?!??!! Well, I have come across some new music of one of my favorite artists and I can’t get enough!
I’m coming up with quite the summer sound track and for my commute every day 🙂

And on that note, I must get out and go grocery shopping, do some cleaning, maybe laundry, and who knows what else before work this evening!

<3always, Christiane
