New York, Part III (The End)

As I'm writing this, I'm back in my dorm in D.C. Kind of sad, but kind of ready to get a good night's sleep in what has sort of become my own bed. 

Not the best picture of me, but it shows our adventure from last night - cupcake baking! Another friend of mine from MN who goes to Fordham (but at the other campus in the Bronx) came up to visit Beth and I, and after getting dinner at the little 24-hour cafe again, we decided we wanted to make cupcakes! Of course we had no oil, eggs, cupcake pan, or mix - so we went to the grocery store and mass hilarity ensued as we tried to find the funfetti cupcake mix hidden behind all the rest of the (precariously balanced) mixes. It was quite fun. By this time I was beyond tired, so when they accompanied Shelah back to her campus to make sure she got home safe, I crawled into Beth's bed and proceeded to sleep until 11:30 the next morning. It was lovely.

Breakfast at Magnolia Bakery! I feel bad for Beth, it must be difficult having such an amazing bakery this close, she must go waaaay too often :) Here she is with her healthy breakfast of a devil's food cupcake - I opted for a muffin, but only because I bought a cupcake for the road...

And here I am, back in my own room, post-megabus ordeal #2. I must say, this one was not nearly as bad as the first, but still not very enjoyable. The bust left about half an hour late, and this is because they filled up the first bus and sent it off, then packed the rest of us onto a little coach bus. It didn't have wifi like the last one which was disappointing, but it did have working overhead lights which was quite nice once the sun went down (I purposefully bought my ticket so that I would get back when the sun was still up so as to appease my parent's - and my own - wish for extra safety, but considering that the bus was late that didn't happen. oh well). Now I am back in my room and procrastinating from studying for Russian. I should probably go do that now. Ugh. Then I will get some sleep. Yay!

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend, and the good news is that now we only have four more days until the next!
