Derek's Days

Christmas has come, and almost gone. What the heck? Not one part of me felt like Christmas this year, it came much too quick. I managed to get a flight out of NYC on Monday, Sara and I had to go down to TX then back up to MN. Amy, Matt and Tyler came and picked me up on Monday night from the Airport then my mom came and got me on Tuesday morning in order to be back in Ashland for my dentist appointment. Tuesday I just hung out then Wednesday morning Grandma, Grandpa and I came down to Wausau. We did Christmas festivities Wednesday, Yesterday and Today. The Buckallews got a Wii and new big TV for Christmas so we’ve been in front of that a lot today. It’s nice not having to do anything or be anywhere, so relaxing. I got to watch Home Alone 2 last night, such a good movie; everyone should own it.

Grandma, Grandpa and I are heading back to Ashland tomorrow so I’ll be able to make it in time for Christmas with The Cichons. Sunday will be Christmas with Dad and then probably later with Mom. So many Christmases…

In other news, Allie and I found an apartment in Minneapolis! It’s on Minnehaha Ave about 10 minutes from MCAD and 10 minutes from St Thomas. Though I haven’t seen it, it’s basically the perfect place. Brand new condo, stainless steel gas range kitchen, wood floors, secure building, free laundry, etc etc. I cannot wait to move in, we’re signing the least next weekend as I start work back at Apple on the 4th!

It’s super weird to think that I don’t have a return flight to New York, I’m going to miss that place. At the same time though, I’m so happy to be back at MCAD. We’ll see how it all works out, it always does.

New pics on the Flickr, check it out.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Today, it finally snowed in the city. Yay! It actually feels like Christmas a little. It’s been snowing since about noon, nonstop. I took a cab home after eating dinner at Blockheads with Silvia, Craig and Sara and we got stuck once then fishtailed about 40% of the rest of the ride. By the time I got home I had a text from American Airlines saying my flight was canceled, great. I’m sitting on hold now

update: soonest flight outta here is Monday at 4:30 pm.

crazy crazy crazy.

This semester has been an absolute whirlwind, I’m bittersweet about being done. Tomorrow is my last class, all I have to do is drop off a final paper and I’m done. As excited as I am to get back to MCAD and finish my degree, I wish I didn’t have to leave the city. I love New York, I can’t wait to be back.

Alyssa and Marissa came and visited me last weekend, and before they were here Aubrey was visiting, it was so fun! I got to do a lot of stuff I’ve been wanting to do such I moved here like walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and go to a show. It was great to just walk around and experience the city, I’m really glad they were able to come. Alyssa was on her way home from Germany and Marissa was going home from Florida for Christmas break.

Allie and I have apartment showings lined up for Sunday when I get back, I get to Minneapolis around 3pm. We’re going to look and hopefully decide on an apartment then head home. I have a dentist appointment in Ashland on the 22nd, then am going to go down to Wausau for Christmas. I’ll be back to Ashland for a few days after that then back to Minneapolis for (hopefully) a January 1st move in. I start working again at the Apple store at Southdale on the 4th.

I posted new pictures to Flickr, check them out!

I made the journey home for Thanksgiving which was very nice. Amy, Ashleigh, Jack and I ventured up to Duluth for black friday, which was chaos (as usual) but a good time nonetheless. I didn’t get anything for myself, just things for xmas presents. My mom and I went down to Minneapolis and hung out with Autumn and Robin on Sunday, then I hung out with Ben on Monday and flew back to NYC that night.

Now that I’m back in the City I’ve realized the HUGE amount of work I have to do before the semester is finished. My last day at Apple was today though, which is a big relief. Sara and I’s friend Aubrey is coming from Monday-Thursday then Alyssa and Marissa are coming from Thursday-Monday. I have final projects/papers in basically all my class this week as well. It’s going to be a fun week.

It’s finally hitting me that I won’t be back in NYC after christmas; how crazy. I love living here, this city is absolutely amazing. It’s going to be hard to leave, but I’m going to try my best to get back here ASAP. It’ll be nice to be back in Minneapolis though, around good friends, and I’m quite ecstatic about being back at MCAD. Things will work out as they should, they always do. I’m not worrying too much.
