Living in a closet

I've been trying to catch up with the first week of classes, so hence the lack of posting.

Winter break is over. Back now to the second half of law school.

Ventured to New York City for a few days over the holidays, and it reminded me of why I prefer the West Coast, and why I did not even bother to apply to law school in New York. And how the whole "New York holidays" thing is highly overrated. Oh, and it was also cold like you would not believe.

Random thought...why is it that "boutique" hotels in New York think that they can charge $450 for a room barely big enough to fit a bed? Does the price justification go something like this--sure the room is tiny and the bathroom is like a prison bathroom, but hey, there's neon blue lights in the room and we have an overpriced martini bar in the lobby, so you not only get the tiny room but also get to savor the (neon-blue tinted) "ambiance."

I stayed in one of those once -- the hallways were so dark I wanted a flashlight... nothing says safety like poorly lit halls in a hotel. And the TV was an 18 inch they put in a closet. Motel 6 had bigger room and tv for a lot less money.

You know, without the overpriced martini bar, $14 bottled water in the room, and no free coffee.
