NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORKWhoops, this post was supposed to come out first, before the one on the American Museum of Natural History but I accidentally switched these two. Copping what Stephanie does with some of her posts with the location thing, 'cause I think it's a neat way to showcase where you were at the time, without cluttering up the title. It's a little silly to be putting my own neighborhood but hey, I'm not familiar with most of New York City anyway.
James and I were thinking about watching the ball drop as something we should do at least once in our lives... but there was no way we were going to wait for 5+ hours in freezing temperatures. I was a little underwhelmed at how far away the ball was! When I was younger I would always watch the ball drop with my parents and the cameras always had it close up and I kinda expected it to be bigger and not as far away in person, haha. The Empire State building was looking very jazzy, though!
After going to the American Museum of Natural History on the following day, we went to Nintendo World and I think we want just about everything there. I love how there are people from almost every age group and background being in one place and nerding out to the same thing. There needs to be more of that, for everything. None of that "you're too young/old/whatever for that" kind of thing.
Bonus picture of me putting mascara on from James' view. I'm sure nobody looks super flattering doing that, anyway.
