My turn?

We're back from NYC.

Since I got back from the trip all I've been doing is eating, sleeping, and peeing.

I cant seem to do anything else. I haven't even properly said hello to my dad yet. I feel so exhausted.

This trip was my first trip anywhere (on my own, that is). It was...different.

Fun...but different.

I live such a sheltered life, and a lot of things I did were "firsts". I de-virginized myself (Ummm that sounds weird, but I couldn't think of anything else)

  • First time at a beach (We went to Coney Island...kinda)
  • First time on a plane (CC told me that when the plane takes off its a gradual increase. It SOOO was NOT!) I wish I could post the video of my freak out, but gotta keep it anonymous..sorryyy
  • First time being "randomly searched" at an airport. (I felt like an idiot until I saw them randomly searching an old lady, and man was that old lady pissed that they made her stand up from her wheelchair.She kept saying "This is preposterous". hahahhaha)
  • First time on a ferry
  • First time going to a club (comedy club)
  • First time staying out until 3 in the morning

I hated NYC in the beginning. I did get homesick and got irritated with small and minor things. I kept saying I would never want to live there.Its really loud, people are extremely rude, and there are weirdos everywhere.

However the guys there are absofreakinglutely GORGEOUS.I've never been boy crazy like I was there..My friends and I tried to be as discrete as possible when pointing out a hot guy to each other, so we dubbed hot guys as "Nates" in reference to Nate from Gossip Girl...




























Our convos would go something like this:

"Natenatenatenatenatenate"

"Nate on the left. Blue shirt"

"OMGGGG. Asian Nate/Brown-Desi Nate. Preppy Nate."

Sigh. I miss the Nates the most.

Anyways, commuting to places is so easy, and its just so lively. Theres always something to do and people to see.

And the city grows on you.

The subway system was confusing as all hell. But alas, I sorta understood it on our last day there. Yayy me :)

I might regret posting this statement, later: But I kinda wouldn't mind living/moving there.

P.S. 90% of NYPD are Nates! We kept asking them for directions ;)

Wow, congrats on all your firsts.... but please promise me you'll never say "de-virginise" again .. um....

Yeah I have to agree, the planes don't go up gradually. It's more like OH MY GOOOOOOD!! No wonder they make you sit down.

And I love ferries. We have one in Sydney and when we grew up near no water, the ferry at Christmas time was our favourite thing ever.

And yay for NYPD. I love polivemen in Jordan...mmmMMMMMMM! They were yum. I didn't eat too many though :) And we have great Firemen in Sydney if you want to check them out. Hallelujiah. (<--spelling??!)

ugh, i've met too many nates that were buttholes. nasty nates. i dont like that code.

but i'm happy for you. it sounded like so much fun. i've always wanted to go to a comedy club.. i always get invited to go with my colleagues but its always so late in the evening.
i'm probably going to apply to a couple schools in NY but i dont know how i'd like to live there. the high price of living is a turn-off. and i really do like detroit and the people here, and wouldnt mind stayin in one place. we'lll see.
