Baby, [Facebook Told Me] It’s Cold Outside

Wait, wait, wait. Is it could outside guys? IS IT? Don’t you just hate when you make an internet joke and people don’t sense the sarcasm? Facebook is simultaneously the worst and best social media website that exists. But guess what? Little Girl & the Big Apple finally has a page! So if you haven’t already, please hop on over and “like” away :)

While the rest of the planet the Midwest has been snowed in and frozen solid, I’ve put in just under 40 hours of work in four days. Over the weekend. And I got the pleasure making my first ever phone call to 911 this past Saturday! Being a Rescue 911 fanatic as a child, actually getting to live out a panicked situation was equal parts thrilling and stressful  absolutely terrifying. I won’t go into the details, but much to my delight, the situation was quickly resolved and no one was hurt. Still — insanity.

It’s allegedly going to be in the single digits in New York today, so I’ll keep you guys posted if I feel compelled to post my feelings about it on social media every other second. If you’re lucky, maybe I’ll live tweet an hour of my day dedicated entirely to the weather? That seems to be what people want to hear about these days. Sarcasm aside, stay warm, friends.

Columbus Day Blues

Happy Columbus Day! While many believe today’s holiday is for celebrating the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the Americas, I know the true meaning: to commemorate the great city that is Columbus, Ohio. ;)

Although I didn’t exactly grow up in C-bus, my small hometown was a little under an hour away, so when describing where I’m from, it’s usually my default answer. Once my friends and I were of age to drive, we jetted South as often as we could and spent many weekends and summers in various Columbus neighborhoods, to add some kind of urban flair to our lives. To show my respect for the great capital of the Buckeye State, I’m going to make a list of the things I miss most about my almost home-city, Columbus.

  1. Easton Town Center. Especially around the holidays. I loved it even when I worked there :)
  2. Gallery Hopping in the Short North
  3. Shakespeare in Schiller Park
  4. Bento Go Go. (Cheap and amazing sushi which allegedly and sadly is no more.) I really just miss it because my friends and I posed in pictures like this there:
Bangs were a bad life choice.

Bangs were a bad life decision.

5.  Jeni’s. How do I get my hands on some Cinderella Pumpkin ice cream, stat?
6.  OSU Football. Duh.
7.  Comfest: the best hippie festival in the state.
8.  The Columbus Zoo
9.  North Market
10.  And because I’m a huge cheese-ball, the last but certainly not least thing on my list is all of my family and friends who live there. I’m definitely feeling more homesick than normal for central Ohio today. :(
