School is three weeks deep, nope, don't feel like I'm learning yet, but such is the fact that time is ticking and the new smell has worn off the no longer new year. I'm doing one class, which may not sound like a lot but it's a "futures studies" class (don't ask) plus I'm supposed to write a couple of hundred pages in my spare time, so in actual unfortunate fact, I actually do have to wake up in the morning.

Hmph.Well, it’s another delayed flight, another airport, another recap, a New Year! So let’s see, this is the closing leg of my White Christmas on the Mainland, which funnily enough, turned out to not be white at all, and barely even a Christmas.That said, I just spent new years in New York city with friends and it was nothing short of joyous. Despite the fact that there was still no snow and I found myself wandering around the lower East side of Manhattan in minus ten degree weather, being immersed in the crowded streets dotted with Christmas lights and bundled up people, losing myself in the throngs of Holiday shoppers, sitting in the loud filthy trains and enjoying the views of the Chrysler building in amongst a lit up New York city backdrop from the Roosevelt Island Tram, it didn’t take me long to remember why I was drawn back to …
