I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! I will say that mine had me missing my family but I had an event filled break. I thought it would be fun to break it down a little. Also, let me know how your Thanksgiving was down below!
Wednesday 11/21: Prep Before the Storm
I knew that I would need all the energy that I could muster. I had intended to wake up early so that I could sleep early but that didn’t work. I woke up pretty late and then just relaxed at my apartment and enjoyed the confines of my room. I ended up going to bed around 8:30-9 because…
Thursday 11/22: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
I woke up around 1:30AM to work the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! I got ready slowly and took my time. My roommate made me a breakfast sandwich which I heated and took with me when I got on the subway at 3:00AM. I also want to point out that there were still people at 3:00AM in the subway from workers, homeless, and other commuters. I was a little surprised and honestly thought that I would be unsafe but it wasn’t that bad at all. I sat on the subway for quite a bit before it moved which I wasn’t surprised by. I got to Herald Square around 4:00AM and relaxed before heading up around 4:30AM. I got up to the third floor and got ready for the onslaught! Just kidding. The stilt walkers arrived in slow waves. I was definitely in the slower entering group of people. The parade itself was something I didn’t get to see but I enjoyed working the parade!
I FaceTimed my family and we all took photos as I was walking to 42nd. I definitely missed my family. I got home around 1:30PM. I saw two of my roommates and felt too exhausted to actually going out with one of them to a friendsgiving. I decided to do laundry and watch television. I did fall asleep for 15 minutes because I was just that tired.
Friday & the Weekend: I definitely wanted to do some Black Friday shopping because it has always been a tradition within my family to go out and enjoy the good deals. Shout out to all the troopers who worked their butts off during that whole weekend! I ended up going out in the afternoon to SoHo and grabbing a couple of hot ticket items in Uniqlo, H&M, and Sephora. I spent the rest of my weekend relaxing for the most part. I really needed it since this week has been full of meetings and getting other things in order. I did enjoy what felt like a really long weekend. I need another one please!
