Every once and a while we have those moments when we realize how small the world really is. I had one of those moments on Friday.
After the career fair, luncheon and “graduation”, Madison, Lauren and I talked about going to central park for New York Philharmonic in Central Park concert for cocktail hour. We planned to met in Madison’s room with snacks and sangria and then head to the park. We just had to wait for Madison’s cousin to join us.
When I walked into the room, there was Lexie Kadlec, Madison’s cousin and one of my first friends at Miami University. We met in our freshman dorm and grew close on the waterski team. I could not believe after four years she was sitting in front of me in New York City. We had a great time catching up and reminiscing about ski tournaments, practices and some of the characters on the team *cough* Cowboy. Yeah, there really was a guy named Cowboy.
You never know who you are going to run into in this city. It’s one of the many reasons that I love it.
We had a fantastic cocktail hour in the park with sangria and snacks. It was the perfect way to relax after a long day at the career fair and a great way to start the weekend.
I’m looking foreword to spending a lot more time with Madison and Lauren as well as everyone else in the program that is staying in New York!
