I’m back from a little trip-a-roo to NY for my alma mater‘s homecoming. I can’t lie, we didn’t go to the game. We had more important things to worry about (like visiting the bars and playing flip cup at 2:00 in the afternoon). In case you were concerned, I just googled “Fordham football” to see if they won or lost. They lost. Shocker.
I always have such fun visiting this time of year. There’s something about a college campus in the Fall that just feels right. Even though it was unseasonably warm, there was still that autumnal glow, bouncing off the beautiful old gothic buildings. Cozy. Makes me miss it.
Oh, and another thing I miss about NY is Loehmann’s and Century 21! I managed to squeak a little Loehmann’s shopping in on Friday (Chelsea store only, never the Upper West Side). Nothing like a giant space filled with deals to bring out the competitive shopper in me. Ah, sweet, sweet bargains.
Black squirrel! Love these little buggers. They’re a bit of a rarity, but are common on Fordham’s campus. When I first started school someone told me that they are a rat-squirrel hybrid called a “rat squirrel.” I found this to be probable, it was the Bronx after all. But no, they are in fact their own thing.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Do you enjoy any collegiate activities this time of year?
