Big [apple] News

Big News! Jason was recently accepted to New York University’s Global Affairs program! As of now we are 90% sure that we will be heading to The Big Apple this July where Jason will begin his Masters and I will wander around hopelessly looking for a job (and begin my student teaching). The other 10% is for Seton Hall in New Jersey, but like I said, we’re pretty set on our decision.
I honestly NEVER imagined myself living in New York. It’s almost as exciting as when we were planning on going to Australia for Jason’s masters (yeah, we were seriously considering it). I’m so excited that within just a few years of my life I will have lived in three different states. I think without Jason, I would’ve just stuck myself back in Michigan after school – not that there’s anything wrong with Michigan, I’ve just been there my whole life. I’m really excited to live in New York, but a little nervous (I’m a big safety freak, but I think we’ll be okay). New York is definitely going to be a huge culture shock, especially coming from this bubble in Idaho.

We’re mostly excited for New York because it just screams new adventures! East coast states are all smushed together so we’ll be taking every opportunity we get to visit as many as we can. New York itself is full of fantastic things – I’m mostly excited for Broadway Shows.

Back to the present: This weekend Jase and I attempted to go snowboarding at Kelly Canyon in Ririe, Idaho, but when we got there and looked at the hill, we decided it wasn’t worth it to go on that death trap. We haven’t gotten much snow this winter as I have mentioned in previous posts so there was very little snow on the mountain. It actually looked really slick and icy which was not a good idea for someone who falls every 4 feet. Jason imagined me breaking my arm – I imagined myself breaking my neck. . . We’ll wait until we can go back to Targhee.

We stuck around Ririe for a little while to take some pictures by a bridge and take a miniature walk on a path to see the Snake River. It was actually quite pretty. Jason pointed out that from that view you could actually see how the river snakes.
