More than a month has past since my last posting here. That is probably because I am spending more time on enjoying my stay here than updating my website Which is a good thing I guess.
So what has happened? Finally summer is here in New York City. We already had a few days here with temperatures between 30 and 35 degrees and the typical high humidity. Currently it has switched back to “normal” with temperatures around 25.
In May I had a pretty bad, almost depressive phase here. I was not really satisfied with the whole situation, at work and off-work alike. But the longer I am staying here the more I am enjoying it. I think it also has much to do with the fact that the weather is pretty nice now and gives some additional boost to my mood.
My internship has slightly improved, which is because I am doing more responsible work than at the beginning. Nevertheless I will be very happy when we are finishing the current project at the end of June (hopefully).
Whenever I have time (which is mostly at weekends) I still try to explore new spots around the city. On a Saturday, I went to Staten Island with the ferry, some days ago I went to Bryant Park to watch Broadway Under the Stars. Today I went to see the New York Aquarium on Coney Island. There’s always a lot to do and see here. Despite all the stress and the hectic, New York is a fascinating city. No doubt about that.
I have also seen a couple of movies recently. Want a recap?
Mr and Mrs Smith (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, pretty funny)
Batman Begins (Best movie I’ve seen since I came to the US)
Madagascar (Animation movie about four Central Park Zoo animals)
Unleashed (with Jet Li)
Star Wars Episode III
So I got about six weeks left on my internship. After that I am going on vacation to Vancouver and Hawaii. I am really looking forward to that.
