nyc: my first adventure alone

Mar 13, 2013


Two of my favorite items I bought from VegFest. A new book, signed by the author of Main Street Vegan. Now I will admit, no, I am not 100% vegan. I cheat, more than I should. I live a full-time/graduate student lifestyle and being out sometimes makes this difficult. I like to consider my eating habits as "I prefer to eat vegan," rather than I am vegan. I don't want to offend actual vegans. But for the most part vegan at home. And the train track pictures is my first time taking the train alone; it sounds cheesy but it was a big accomplishment for me :)


People always talk about this hotel on Instagram so when I was close to it, I had to check it out! I did the photo booth alone and love it. I don't think I will ever be ready for the first picture in photo booths. Oh well. I love the quotes they have scattered around the lobby. I met up with my friend, W, who is in this picture. I got to use his camera, I am not an expert at manual focus, as you can see. He got a coffee from the coffee shop, jealous. I still can not have coffee until the end of March.

NYC MET The highlight.
I have never been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. This is a shock to many of my friends and finally, finally I got to go! W was headed into the city so I said I would meet him and when he said he was visiting the Met I was ecstatic. We went on a tour and walked around for a few hours and it was a blast. I didn't even get to visit half of it, not even close. I had no idea how big it was but I can not wait to go back. I barely took any pictures but oh well. The ones taken were from W when we were outside the Met. He has good skills.

I love all the pictures he took of me. They are awesome.
