Flying to See Sky (and Tanya!)
And, as a result of said headache, I barely have enough mental wherewithal to keep my fingers on the home row of the keyboard.
Come on Crystal, soldier on. You are trying to write one entry a day — you can do this.
But my head hurts! Plus, I still have a couple of hours of work to do.
Think happy thoughts, Crystal
…hummmmm……Oh, I know! Overtime money to spend in NY!
Okay, now my head is a little better.
So, as some of you know, I got my vacation time approved and on Friday I got my tickets picked out too. I’m totally stoked! Especially since I found out that I can take my laptop with me on the airplane. I’m usually very pensive and internal while on a trip. Making me full of insights. But usually if I’m on a trip I’m driving so my hands aren’t exactly free for writing.
Maybe something amazing will come out of me while I take my first trip east of the Mississippi River! Maybe my own version of “Eat, Pray, Love?” Eh…probably not. But maybe it will be something almost as good.
Of course planning for the trip has me thinking about trying to slim down in the next 2 months so that I’m not completely embarrassed forevermore by the photos taken of me while on my trip. Tanya even suggested I pack a swimming suit. I have no idea the last time I was that naked in public…2001? Maybe I’ll skip the suit.
Speaking of packing, I am suddenly embarrassed by all of the clothes in my closet. What can I wear on my trip to NYC that I will feel good about?
Plus, I have no idea how much money I’m going to need while on the trip. I think I have arranged it so that I can have $500-$1000 bucks just for the trip (not including the ticket — that’s already paid for).
I hope that’s enough.
I have a list of things I want to do already besides just seeing my amazing friends Tanya and Sky (and the others who are now in NYC).
- I HAVE TO see a musical while I’m there and after watching the Tonys I’m thinking I want to go to “American Idiot.”
- I’ve been advised to take the double-decker tour bus one of the days I’m there
- I’m interested in a ferry ride around the island/a ferry ride to Ellis Island
So far, that’s all I’ve got. Anyone have any more ideas for me?
