On another note, I was invited to New York a while before I was laid off. I actually didn't plan the trip until after the layoff because when I was working I was super focused on my paper and putting money aside to move this spring. I figured, why not take the New York trip soon rather than later. My thoughts were whenever I get a new position, I know that I won't have any vacation time to do anything so now (or then) timing was perfect, a quick weekend trip. I ended up having a great time with my number one fan. I won't lie, I had a bit of an attitude in the beginning, but would I be Kristin without being a brat (at least I didn't show it). I can't wait to experience New York in the summer, please let me know of any upcoming festivals. Take a look below to see me in total tourist mode...
Gotta Love a nice hotel!!!
True New Yorker (for that weekend at least)
My dreams of being on Broadway came true lol
Super excited to stop at the Sanrio store
Had hookah and met new friends, they were super cool!!!
The next trip I took
instead of sitting at home on unemployment was home to Georgia.I finally had two days in a row off from my part time gig and wanted to go home really, really bad. One of my days off was also the day that my grandmother was getting a few test results back from the doctor and I wanted to be there. I made a pit stop in Atlanta and then headed to C-Town. I really needed a big dose of family, even it was only two days.
