I love this. I miss New York. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to land an internship with Scholastic in NYC next summer. If I can, I think it'd be really really cool if I could crash with someone in the city for the summer. I'll have to use my "connections", which means getting in touch with people I know live there and seeing if they know anyone willing to rent out a room, a couch, or a place to hang my hammock. Is it a stretch? Perhaps.
Worst case scenario: Nothing will work out and I have to live in Rome and skate with the Rome Rollergirls, which would be hecka-awesome. :)
