June 22nd @ 9:01pm New York time.
Sitting on the metro/PATH thing on my way back to Jersey. Of course I have no reception but even I got tired of finding inanimate objects to stare at so I figured I'd at least start some semblance to a blog. Especially considering all I've done today was post pictures. Granted they are relevant to my upcoming post BUT I still feel bad. So since I can't send this now, I'm time-stamping it. My stop is next, thankfully. And I may or may not continue writing when we get there. It may be later on or tomorrow, depending on if I get back to the hotel room and pass out or suddenly am full of energy. I figure I'll be awake enough to finish, or should I say start, my blog for today once I get out of these sneakers and put up my ginger fro. Oh and charge my phone. Who knew how much battery it took to calm my need to blog obsessively. Bb (as my BlackBerry will be referred to from here on out) has done its job well and I'm very proud to say that it has lasted this long. For those that understand, we're going on red here. And I've still got a cab ride to go. So tootles until I get some phone juice and some wine!
I can't believe I'm just now getting to this blog again. Shame on me. I was going to type furiously this morning on the metro but alas I was forced to stand the entire way and I have not relaxed since.. Last night. Got lots of Harry Potter exhibit and shopping done.
…Crap. I'll have to postpone this again.
I'm afraid this blog is going to be super unbalanced and cray cray as I like to say. Writing it at three different times is ridiculous. I apologize for the three different moods. Hopefully it's not horrible and confusing.
I'd like to start this blog by saying I LOVE NEW YORK CITY. The vastness of my love and adoration for this fascinating city is beyond comprehension for even me. Being a good ole country girl caused me to believe that I may be able to appreciate the people watching and huge buildings but never did I ever think I'd feel so enthusiastic standing on a crowded metro train, dodging between hurried businesspeople and running across the streets before I'm "supposed" to.
Another FAB thing I noticed was the magnitude of BlackBerrys! It like mothertrucking BBM galore. That's BlackBerry Messenger for you non-bb people. I know this isn't a big deal, but I do judge people by their smartphones. Sorry. So for those readers that go to my blog on their bb, special thanks to yall for being amazing!
Now I'm going to sound insane right now. But I love the show Gossip Girl. With a passion. I would live in that show if at all possible. I want to wear the clothes they wear and walk the streets they walk. And I totally could in NYC! I could not believe all the stores I went in. H&M, Necessary Clothes, Top Shelf, only to name a few. I spent my monies in many more than that. Sorry Mr Credit Card. The stores here hardly compare to Texas stores. The clothes that can be bought! It's heavenly. I swear angels were singing when I took my first step into a new shop.
My mom told me this happened and I have no reason to not believe it. But apparently two nights ago on the train ride back to Jersey, when I was writing the beginning of this blog. Or when was that.. Crap I don't even know anymore. But anyways, I was mad typing away on bb and for those that do not know, I can look around and type at the same time without stopping. But basically, apparently I was being watched. Every time I would left my head to take in the people for a brief moment, those people would look away so I never saw them do this. Only sensed them watching me. I'm quite fond of this story. I feel complete about this trip now that I was able to grab the attention of New Yorkers without the reason being because I got hit by a cab or tripped over my own feet.
Next noteworthy thing, subways: breeding grounds for dates. Having to sit over someone during crowded rides after work hours is bound to result in flirting if not a date. Or a few devious looks.. At least. I wasn't sure what to think about having to stand over this mildly attractive man in a white tank top and jean mini skirt. But I stared off and pretended not to be aware of the fact that I was all but straddling him by the second stop. I might have to try this out and 'accidentally' fall onto a nice looking man's lap.
A myth I once thought was that residents of NYC were not polite. How completely opposite people make yall seem! People were so kind and helpful to my confused family. Maybe it's just because of my mentality, maybe not. Regardless, it put a smile on my face seeing all the people.
All I have to say is that I would be more than happy to come back and visit this beautiful city when I'm older (21) and with friends (not family). Thanks for the adventure, New York, I couldn't have asked for more.
One last word for thought ..sorta, don't forget about my friend the Follow button. It does like to be touched you know. Go on, go click it. You know you want to (especially now).
xoxo, the little birdy.
