Empire State of Mind
Maybe they just need to run free
til they find someone just as wild to run with them.”
I am so lucky to be surrounded by amazing friends.
Some of my best I met through this beautiful organization.
When I play my cards right I have weekends off and if the stars align well then I get
to spend the weekend in wonderful places like . . . New York City.
My first weekend in the Big Apple I spent with great company:
|RCK. Me . JJB|
|Dylan. Kirk & I.|
|S & A|
Kappa & The City
|Me. K. TAG. AEG. A.|
I wish I started every Friday morning with a red-eye flight to JFK and knocking on apartment 8A.
With barely 48 hours to take it all in I did manage to see and do quite a few things. Of course a tradition of frozen yogurt on the steps of the Met.
Kirk, Kellis, Dylan, Alex & I ventured out to Milk & Honey, a "speakeasy" in the city. We had to remind Kirk more than once that it was almost 2012 and their was no loner a national ban on alcohol. It is by far one of my fondest memories of the City.
Even though I spent every sunrise in the city with my main squeezes, Percy's & Dorrian's the sleepless nights were totally worth waking up early enough to catch brunch and a football game.
|No sleep till Brooklyn|
The second weekend in NYC was much more Kappa-filled. We took over the city (&Long Island) to welcome our 138th chapter, Eta Pi at New York University.
I could not ask for more a meaningful weekend.
On Friday, I was joined by Family 21!
My Grand Big & Big Sister came up to the city from D.C.
On Saturday, K & A came over to Long Island to witness the Installation of our new chapter and they got to meet all my LC friends. Alex, Kristen & I were able to participate and initiated three members.
It was wonderful to be around so many familiar faces:
|A, S & K|
|Allison & I|
“The most important thing in life is your family.
There are days you love them, and others you don’t.
But, in the end, they’re the people you always come home to.
Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into
and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself.”
