Hey everyone! How was your week? Lovely? Yes, this week was St Valentine's Day, which I'm glad is over. Not that I have anything against celebrating love! That's always fun, but walking around the city to find heart shaped stuff every other step is, at least, quite overwhelming. Ironically, 14th of February was the day I've heard about 'single parties' the most!
As an example of how love was in the air in the city, here's the Empire State lit in red that night. After work, I had a date with my sweatpants and went for a work out. What a nice Valentine's day!
I find it amazing how stores change from one holiday to another. Right after Christmas was over, the heart shaped stuff came out. Now that Valentine's Day is passed, there are eggs, rabbits and everything about Easter in the shop windows.
On Friday I had a really cool plan. I went to see my roommate acting in a theater play for the first time. It was a show from the acting students at New York Film Academy. There were four short plays and a musical show. I have to say I was really impressed by their talent. I also felt proud to see my friend on the stage, and I must say he did a great job!
After the show, it was time to have some fun after such long week. One of my friends, a fellow international student at Berkeley, was leaving the city this weekend and had his farewell party. It's always sad that people have to leave. However, this is New York, and very few people stay here forever. I need to get used to that!
It was a nice party, and after that I was ready to relax for the rest of the weekend. I've been hanging out around the city, went to the movies, had delicious chocolate and even had some guitar lessons. Now back to business! See you soon!
