A Work in Progress...

Memes float around the web like those little subscription postcards that are always falling out of magazines. Sometimes I enviously want to play along, othertimes I find memes just a tad annoying. To be honest, I've never been much of a list maker (or follower) and not much of a goal setter. With the knowledge that I won't be in New York too much longer, I figure it is probably a good time to start figuring out what exactly it is I want to get out of my time here.

As role models, I will look to my friend from freshman year of college (I pride myself on introducing him to snowmen and s'mores) and my "twin" from those good ol' sorority days. The former (I'm sad to say) is leaving NYC after six and a half years for an exciting new life in London. The latter, a newcomer to NYC who is painting the town red.

What would you do if you knew you only had _ amount of time left in what David Letterman rightly calls "the greatest city in the world?"
