A Sweet Getaway

This weekend I went to Manhattan with my friend, Pauline, and her sister, Christy. We planned to go to a Ukrainian Festival. Although once we got there we got to see Dance Studios preform. It was a Parade or something of that sort. There were colorful costumes that stood out and different kinds of dances. Something you wouldn’t find very often.

One of the many Dance Studios that were performing on Saturday! It was a thrill! Simply an amazing thing to see.

It was the best. Aside from the rain drizzling. After that we decided to go to Soho where we met another friend, Menyee. There were many things we saw walking through the streets, some stores we haven’t turned our attention to in the past. It felt as though we were still exploring the city we already knew. It was great, even if I stopped every few minutes to take pictures of the things that were surrounding us.

Went to tumblr. headquarters with Ms. Schenck, Ms. Dunzelman, and other guys from the intensive! Our intensive is about blogging so that seemed like a perfect fit! Had lots of fun exploring there. They have a “Doggy Room” which, yes, has dogs in it! That probably made my day already. Never seen so many laid back people. Who thought work could be that fun for some? Have to admit, definitely not me.

Got some stickers while we were there!

Heard a story about a guy who shaved his head to have a ” t ” on the back which was something he did to celebrate his two years working at tumblr! Too bad the internet does’t have an image of that.. But instead here’s a picture of some awesome pins I got! Love my pins!

Central Park Scavenger Hunt

Today was the day we went to Central Park. Yay! I was just really happy to get outside. The Intensive Class is about blogging! So getting outside was supposed to help get our creative juices flowing.

This is the place our scavenger hunt took place! It was a very unusual hunt, but definitely my favorite.

Everyone received a hunt that would compliment their blog. I thought that was pretty awesome. I was worried about coming up to random people and asking them if I could take a picture. That was definitely something i wasn’t used to and it felt really refreshing do do that.

one of the things on my scavenger hunt list was take a picture of somebody reading.

Believe it or not, it was hard for me to find someone that was reading in Central Park. It was a little awkward asking this random person if I could take his picture. But after I did it, I felt like I actually got out of my shell and I could get done with my hunt.

This is probably the best looking horse in NYC I've seen so far. Maybe.

There were other pictures I’ve taken which were just of my surroundings, and I really loved the pictures that Nina and I got.

I really liked this picture. It gives a feeling of a city jungle.

This hunt was supposed to help everybody in our class get started with their first blog post. I have to admit that for a really long time today I’ve been trying to figure out what I was going to say, hopefully I won’t take forever with my next post.
