"There's a certain nostalgia and romance in a place you left." - David Guterson

Maybe this week's episode of Glee got it right: I'm in a post-Valentine's day slump. Valentine's Day was so much to look forward to, and exceeded all expectations, and now, it's back to the normal routine. I don't know if it is the weather or my strong desire to procrastinate on my school work, but all I can think about is Miami!

I've decided I'm going to get it all out of my system so I can concentrate on my work for the rest of the day. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you a David Letterman-style list:

Top 10 List of Reasons Why I Love Miami

10. The weather - predictable AND beautiful 99.9% of the year
9. Gorgeous beaches and water everywhere
8. Sometimes I can pretend I'm in another country
7. I can wear stilettos and sequins whenever I want, wherever I want, and it is perfectly acceptable
6. I can sing songs about Miami and not feel silly, because I'm actually in Miami, Bitch.
5. Beautiful people watching (though potentially tough on the 'ol ego)
4. Home of the one and only University of Miami - Go 'Canes!
3. Did I mention the beaches?
2. The majority of my best friends and favorite people live in Miami

And...the number one reason Why I love Miami is...

1. I am not in Miami!

...but I will be in T-minus 10 weeks...not that I'm counting, or anything...

  1. Except you're forgetting the part about the miserable people that infest South Florida... And the ridiculous traffic at any hour of the day. And the fact that nobody speaks English. And the cockroaches. I could go on...
