Photo Friday: Ohio License Plate Map

In Ohio State's student union is an interesting map. Each county is represented by a different license plate from the state. Wish I had this in my living room!

Odds and Ends Around Ohio State

When Sarah (my former college roommate) and her sister visited for a couple of days earlier this summer, I took quite a few photos during our walk around Ohio State. Although I've made it back to campus many times, both when we lived in New York and since we moved back to Ohio, I still find it interesting to see how much has changed.

I've highlighted (or will highlight) several photos in my "Photo Friday" series, but here are a few more odds and ends.

A Look Back on New York

I was so happy and sad to visit New York again in June. I was counting the days until we would arrive and desperately hoping the hours would stretch so that we wouldn't have to return to Ohio anytime soon. But now that I've had the full benefit of a week in Brooklyn and more than two months back in Columbus, I think I can honestly say I'm glad to be back.

I had glorified New York a bit in my head. I had always suspected this would happen, but our visit confirmed it. In my head, the annoyances weren't quite so annoying. But in the heat of the moment (and it was about 100 degrees when we were there!) they are difficult to ignore. Subways aren't made for strollers, and the sweltering stations aren't make for humans -- or at least those who want to remain comfortable. The apartments are small. Parking is far away. And if I had to go to a Laundromat again ...

So I'm used to the creature comforts of Columbus again. I maintain that New York is the most exciting city in the world. But it's certainly not the easiest.
