tuesday december 14
I went to see Usher, Trey Songz, and special guests at Madison Square Garden. This was one of the last things I did with the group :( We had so much fun! I also went with Andreas family to tour Google with Dale. Google is an amazing food, exercise machines, scooters, and fun meeting  places.

Wednesday December 15
I had lunch with Brianna for the last time :(  we went and had sandwiches....she then gave me a frame from NYC with our group picture from Jason Castro. After that I went to  the girls apartment to hang out and get ready for the party :) Then I checked out of The New Yorker.....went to the party with the group.....where we ate food, watched movies, made a gingerbread house! Late that night it was time to say goodbye :( Me and Lisa cried and hugged a million times! It was SO sad and hard to walk out the door.

Internship done.....last minute fun....then home for more fun!

Friday December 10
Was my last day at Project Sunshine.  I helped send off hundreds of toys for the holidays. Then said my goodbyes and headed to the interns last hospital event at the  Hospital for Special Surgery. We made popcorn ball ornaments out of candy which was so much fun for the kids.

After the event I said bye to the other interns....I will miss them so much and will miss having a job to do everyday but will have one again soon enough. Later I went to my secret santa party where I was given a scarf and topogan from Jenna and I bought Lisa christmas items for her new apartment :) Then we all watched Elf and enjoyed being with each other for the last time.

Saturday December 11
Today was moving day for all of my NYC friends...I ate dinner with Brianna and watched Private Practice all day...Then went to Cold Stone with Brianna which was delicious and weird eating since it is so cold outside!

Sunday December 12
Went to church with Brianna at Cityvine. The sermon was great as usual. Then I had to say bye again :( I have just started to get to know and be comfortable at this church and now it is time to leave...saying good bye is not fun but I plan to come back and keep in touch with everyone :).  After church me and Brianna went to eat where I ate a delicious BBQ chicken pizza that was yummy! Then I stayed in my room the rest of the day since the weather is so gross...

Monday December 13
I have eaten lunch with Lisa, walked around fifth avenue, central park, and tried to find me a NYC mug at a souvenir shop unsuccessfully....Later I have Andrea's showcase with all my New Yorker friends :) then maybe Serendipity for dessert after :)

The end is near...bittersweet but still a little sad

Tuesday December 7
I sent teddy bears that were donated to us for different hospitals out. Then we started putting things together for our Naughty and Nice event. This entailed going to our storage facility and picking up a few boxes. The car service that was supposed to pick us up from there cancelled so it all became drama filled very quickly! But me, Heidi, and Stephen finally made it back to the office. Then I sent more teddy bears out.

After work I just chilled in my room after a long busy day. Then watched Gossip Girl with Lisa.

Wednesday December 8
The day started with me receiving around ten emails from Jing about sending bears too hospitals. I ended up sending three boxes each to about eleven hospitals....After that I took a break because I was running around with my head cut off almost and Jing said I needed a break lol...Then I helped pack up all of the raffle prizes for our event because the girl in charge of it all was a little stressed!

I could not get away from work fast enough! Everyone was going around crazy all day and the office was filled with boxes. So I left and went to Duane Reade for a snack and to buy some last minute items for my outfit I am wearing for the event. Then Kathleen and Brianna were waiting on me to eat but I had a left over burrito to eat from lunch. So they bought pizza and we just hung out for the rest of the night. Then I went back to my room and managed to lose my remote to the TV....still have no clue what I did with it :(

Thursday December 9
Today is almost my last day!!! I have sent off two boxes of teddy bears and helped Marisa with a few things and that is it! Tonight is the big Naughty and Nice event where I will be helping at the Registration table..I am told the event will be fun but we shall is a fundraiser for Project Sunshine where we invited Young Professionals..hope to see some celebs maybe :)

Tomorrow is my LAST day at Project Sunshine and event with them!!! It has been fun, stressful, frustrating, and just a experience I will never forget.

Start of the end of my journey...

Friday December 3
Well my day started with happy news from my sister :) so excited for her!!! Then I went to second to last Friday there :) Then after work I had to pay for school tuition :( which reminded my class days are soon to begin again....

After work I went and  helped my friends paint their new apartment! It is a two story apartment that is great! Who would have thought you could find an affordable place that was nice with a backyard in Manhattan! 

Late that night we went to Tick Tock to eat dinner because we were tired and starving. Then it was off to bed..I had a train to catch in the morning.

Saturday December 4
I headed to Long Island early on Saturday. Brianna picked me up at the station and we went and picked me up some Ugg cleaner at a place called Lowmans. Then we went to Main Street but it was way too cold to be outside so we went to her house and got warm while watching CSI Miami! Later Kathleen came and joined us then we went to go see The Next Three Days with Brianna's parents Dan and Rose...the movie was amazing! It definitely kept us guessing the whole time. Then we went back to their house and got pizza for dinner followed with more CSI Miami.

Sunday December 5
We went to Brianna's church which is Episcopal and so it was very different from what I am used to. But going meant alot to her and let me learn more about other religions and also about her families beliefs. Then we went to Smoky Al's a barbecue place that was very good. The cornbread was probably my favorite part because it was moist and yummy...reminded me of home!

Then me, Brianna, and Kathleen baked cookies all afternoon. I wondered why we were catching such a late train back to the city...come to find out Brianna had planned with her Nanny to make a goodbye meal for me...her whole family was there except for her sister and was so nice. We ate and talked and just enjoyed each others socializing...I was really tired but staying late was so worth it! I will miss all of them very much! They are a great family and are always entertaining :)

Sunday night I arrived back late to my room. So I talked to mom on the phone and then headed to bed. I missed graduations and showers but it was great to be doing my own thing and having my own plans for a change :) 

Monday December 6
At work we had a 5th year anniversary for Emily which was alot of fun. We ate Indian food and decorated the room with bills because Emily brings in the money to or organization :)

After work I went to Shake Shack with Brianna and Kathleen :) so yummy! Peanut Butter Shake...(The diet starts when I get back on Texas soil...maybe) Now I am waiting on Gossip Girl to start and hang out with Lisa! I am going to miss these girls

Holidays! Internship almost over....almost time to leave NYC :/

Sunday  November 28
I was lazy all day! Eventually I went and worked out but for the  most part I caught up on sleep.

Monday November 29
I worked on cleaning my back area at work all day because it is a mess. Then after work me Brianna and Kathleen went to Shake Shack. This place is a popular burger and shake joint but to me it was nothing special.

Tuesday November 30
We had mine and Stephen farewell lunch. They ordered sandwiches and we talked about each of our experiences....Then I had to go to the bank to pick up a wire transfer...get Beatrice to sign it...bring the paper back to the bank. Also picked up a coffee pot because someone left it on during the Thanksgiving break.....
Then I went to the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ;) I was across the street but got to see the tree light up and here some of the performances....just wish others from my group could have made it.

Wednesday December 1
I worked on last minute internship paper stuff....also had to un do a bunch of craft kits that were junkie and keep the salvageable items...Then I updated the fundraiser database that goes along with our Naughty and  Nice event next week.

After work I went to Subway because I had not eaten all day and was starving! Subway is great wherever you are...Then we ran to get snacks and go see the movie Love and Other Drugs. The movie was not my regular movie but was cute and had a lesson with it...

Thursday December 2
I paid for tuition today :( I am excited about seeing everyone but am not ready to go back to I will miss my friends I have made here....
Then I finished cleaning out all of the bad craft kits, put together an event box, sent off fifty hair straighteners  to a hospital, and sent surgi dolls off.

Later tonight we are supposed to go walk to Rockefeller and see the tree and to take fun pictures :)
