Would I do it all again....in a heartbeat! I loved every minute of it. All the awkward, strange people on the public transportation,the second hand smoke, the kid in the back of the bus that wouldn't stop crying, the wait for 12 hours (mostly standing up) in Times Square to see a minuscule ball drop, the live musical performers, the game upon endless game of Scum to pass the time, the friends I love, the inability to go to the bathroom for a LONG time, the crazy hats, scarves with bells, glasses, balloons with streamers, drunk people around us, and much much more. I loved every stinking minute of it! Happy New Year!

Oh and P.S my suitcase did arrive...finally!
