Kicked off my road trip a few days ago and am currently commuting between NYC and Larchmont via train. Staying at the McKays is always so fun.

Things i’ve learned about myself:

  • I need to learn how to be more efficient upon getting ready to do things (…don’t take an hour and a half)
  • Really hate large crowds and public transportation freaks me out (the train is growing on me)
  • As much as i try to plan and organize what i do, i always enjoy getting to the place and then seeing whats around me, then going from there.
  • NY isn’t as horribly scary as i thought it previously was
  • I could live in SoHo (hipster) or (obviously) the West Village (think cute restaurants/great food scene)
  • I’m on the verge of basic white girl and normal/laid back Point Loman//according to Leyna haha
  • I genuinely love strolling around unknown places
  • I really love the East Coast
  • NEED TO STOP SAYING THE WORD “like” ew ew ew

In chronological order, a few pictures of what I’ve been up to:
