I just deleted all of this....so how to get back those folks who looked before....
As honest as possible: all of the stuff written here was from my first effort nearly five years ago, and well, it was geared towards the other side of the fence.
I am not really so new to Miami, but I feel like I just moved here yesterday. Really, it's been two and a half years. I moved from Washington D.C., and sometimes I miss it immensely, then I remember there were two blizzards within a 4-week period the winter before I moved.
As for Miami, besides feeling as if I might die each time I get in my car, I love it here. I live four blocks from the ocean, ride my bike to meet up with friends and plop a kayak into the water whenever I'd like...that's a pretty good life.
I'm insanely loyal to my friends and value the same in other people. I love to read, write and watch movies. If you know a great place on the beach to get iced coffee and bagels please share it with me.
I keep busy with my master's program, but always am able to schedule in time for laughing, fun with friends or just experiencing the spectacle that is Miami Beach.
