Want to know all the things I’ve done in the past couple weeks? No? Oh well, I’m telling anyway.

I cut off my hair.

after!  I don’t think my hair has ever been this short in my life.  it’s weird. it’s different. I like it.

I went to Chicago for 4 days. For a job interview. And to see family.  Whirlwind trip.

I ate some great food while in Chi town.

sushi date with mom!  (one of the best salmon skin rolls I’ve ever had – and salmon skin is my favorite)

I had one of the worst flight experiences of my life.  It went something like this:

Flight delay announcement.

… which means airport froyo. (this happens way too often at this airport…) Flight NOT delayed anymore, we are rushed on the plane to try to beat the storm.  Push back from the gate, about to take off, then this happens.

Sit on the tarmac for an hour and a half. Take off (finally).  Approach LaGuardia, and another storm hits, the airport is ground stopped. No planes can land.  Circle the airport for an hour and a half.  RUN OUT OF FUEL, and get diverted to Hartford Connecticut. WHAT.

It’s already 11:30 pm. My flight was supposed to land at 8pm.  I’m in Connecticut.  Not happy.  We eventually took off again, landed in NYC, and I got home at about 2am. SIX HOURS after I was supposed to.

That made this weekend rather fun, because…

I said goodbye to my East Village apartment.

I’m gonna miss that place, especially living in the village!  Such a great location – I’ll be back some day (yeah right…if my paycheck ever allows for it).

So yeah.  It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, and I’m now getting settled in my new (hopefully temporary – it’s so far from downtown!) home, and job hunting like a madwoman.

What’s the worst flight experience you’ve had?

Done anything exciting in the past few weeks?

    Wow what a big change with your hair! It looks great! :)

    Ugh that’s so frustrating about your flight – I would have been so mad. My worst flight experience was on my way to HLS last year when our flight was cancelled. We were able to get on another flight a few hours later, but then it was delayed! It was so annoying.
