New York. IM OBSESSED. I’ve been waiting my whole life and I finally got the opportunity to go! The best part was that Ernst & Young (one of the big four accounting firms) paid for my trip! It was one of the coolest experiences I have ever had. We listened to some of the most successful, inspiring people speak and I got to get a picture and talk with the CEO of EY. I was there for four days and I learned so much and fell in love with the city.
My first day, I arrived in NY at the same time as this girl named Mariana. I met her at the airport and it was love at first sight. Haha but really, I got so lucky, shes a way cute girl and we had so much fun that week. That night, we went to Times Square and Rockefeller Center.

Next day: The conference started at 2:30pm. So we had until then to EXPLORE NYC. We started early and you'll never guess how much we accomplished. Starting at 8:00am: Empire State Building, then Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, Down to the statue of Liberty, Across the ferry to Staten Island, then up to Wall Street and the 9/11 memorial, then to Soho, saw John Mayer's house, China Town, Little Italy, Grand Central Station, up to the MET, and walked back by central park to our hotel. ALL IN SIX HOURS. It was crazy and exciting, just like the city. We are pros at using the subway now.

My last day: Woke up super early, did my accounting homework for three hours and then walked around central park and got back just in time to make the 8:15am breakfast.
On our last day, we listened to more great speakers and then we all made skits. They were hilarious. I was laughing so hard. It's really amazing to see everyone's creativity.

The conference was amazing. Amazing people, Amazing place, and what an amazing company! And what a winter break! From as far west and south as I could go in the US, to North West, to just about as East and North in the US, back to my home in the middle. And on top of all of that travelling, I moved from Lanai to Alpine Village. It's been busy. But it's great to be back, and I love being able to have my best friends as my roommates. We're heading down to Zion for the weekend! :) Happy Martin Lurther King Jr Day!
