A few weeks ago I decided that I need an escape from Evanston.

Between the cold, grey winter, seemingly never-ending storylines and a mountain(ish) of work, an escape from “the bubble” was more than necessary to attempt to reset and refocus before gearing up for my last quarter in business school. While a tropical getaway wasn’t in the cards, I knew what I needed was a quick jaunt to my second home/ favourite city in the world: New York.  An expiring JetBlue credit made the flights cheaper and having a place to crash in the city helped keep costs down.

Here’s a glimpse at my weekend.

It still makes me sad to see this.  So many $0.25-$.50 hot dogs consumed.
