’98 Seconds with Naomi Lynn’ – Celebrating Two Years in Central New York
Today is a very special day for Naomi Lynn - It's her 2-year-anniversary at Lite 98.7! In this week's "98 Seconds" video, she talks about a few things she's learned in the last two years in CNY.
It's crazy how much can change in just two years!
Naomi Lynn talks about some of the things she's learned since moving out to Central New York - Anything from foods that are staples in this area, to the fact that that "Lowville" is NOT pronounced like "low" and "ville," and even things in her personal life she's picked up since she's left Michigan.
In the video (at the top of this page) Naomi explains that she's learned to have fun outside no matter what the season is, and that there's always something to do in Central New York. You can go camping, kayaking, play KanJam and all that in the summer, and in the winter there's tubing, snowboarding, skiing, building snowmen, and so much more you can do to keep occupied.
There are SO many other things Naomi wished she could have hit on - She's learned a LOT in the last two years (but 98 seconds isn't a lot of time to get to all of those things). Here's just a few of them that didn't make it in the video:
- If you mention you're from New York, people assume you're from New York City
- Dunkin Donuts is the coffee place out here - Not Tim Horton's
- Don't argue with people about the best pizza or wings, everyone has their own opinion and they're not going to budge on it
- Oneida is not actually in Oneida County
- More people can handle driving in the snow out here (yes, you still have SOME who don't seem to know what they're doing, but for the most part people are good about it)
- On the subject of snow... It snows A LOT more out here. And it doesn't just snow for a few hours, there are times where snow is falling from the sky for DAYS!
- Unless it's a special occasion driving 35-40 minutes is just too far
- The stereotype that anyone from New York is rude is COMPLETELY false - Naomi has had more people be friendly and try to help her out when she has had problems or questions, than she has ever had in her entire life
- How to drink. Ask her about it sometime
...And that's still not all of it!
She can't believe it has already been two years, and she's looking forward to learning more and continuing to grow over the next few years!
