Journal Entry – 05062018 – NY Trip!

Journal Entry – 05062018 – NY Trip!

I’ve never been to New York and I though it would be a good trip. To go see central park, Statue of liberty, and try a New York style hot dog. I asked Stef if she would be interested in coming along with me to New York, and she agree to come with me. The time that I plan for this trip was when I got laid off from my previous employer. So fast forward a bit to when I got hired at another company, My 90 day plan ends when I get back from my trip, But I felt that it was well deserved at the end of my 90 day as I did so much work in a short amount of time.

At the being of my trip, flying from SFO to JFK using JetBlue. My flight was five hours long. They offer free checked in luggage so I checked my luggage in. There was plenty of leg room and service was not too bad. They did offer free wifi! which was nice, which was nice as I was to browse though some of my goto sites, use wifi calling, and to some extent, stream Hulu shows like Silicon Valley. I really could not sleep on the plane though as sleeping upright is uncomfortable to me. I did get beer on the flight and a bottle of water, but when it came down to get food on the plane, they ran out of everything by the time they got to me. Although they were nice enough for them to not charge me for my beer and water.

The next day. Going though the Hudson river in a fairy, I arrive on Liberty Island were the Statue of Liberty is on. Seeing the statue in person is truly amazing and even standing in-front of it and realizing the size of it. There is a museum on the island that shows the history, and how was the statue made. It the museum showed the history of the statue, the iterations of the torch, its moldings, and repairs the status had it gone though.

Stef and I saw Avenue Q. I really enjoyed the show. The songs where catchy, it had good humor, and the play was very well put together. The theater, New World Stage, was really cool to go as it has many draws on its wall of famous people. For example, Leonard Nimoy, Alfred Hitchcock, and John Lennon just named a few. In addition, at the end of the play they were selling shirts that says:

Donald Trump is only for now!

Which I bought as tomorrow in head toward the Trump Towner. After the show, we went to Serendipity and tried their frozen hot chocolate. After try the desert, it was not my cup tea as it has this granny taste to it.

The next day, We went to the Ess-a Bagel. The bagels that place serves were really tasty. They were fresh and homemade. After eating a bagel, I did not get that heavy feeling inside of your stomach after eating a bagel that you would get from one that is store-bought. I got to try a Black and White Cookie for the restaurant as well. That moist spongy tasty cookie was awesome to have. After the bagel restaurant, we walk to 725 5th Ave. Where I had my T-shirt from the New World Stage theater and gone ahead to take a picture of myself while giving the bird to the current president. There were two people in-front of the Tower, One was the Pro and the other was against. I tried to have a logical argument with the Pro Trump Supporter, but he was ether dismissive in what I have to say, or defensive when I question is motives or ideals. The person who was against the current president was seem opened and having fun protesting. After that, we walked to the M&M World. In side, There I found so many flavors of M&Ms Like Mint, peanut brittle, regular, and Raspberry. For dinner, we went a restaurant called Raclette. Where the waiters serve you melted cheese on to your main course. It was really good! I got a steak with potatoes, and with hot cheese poured on top, it was just awesome!

The last day, I walked from the Brooklyn Bridge, to Central Park, and to the Wall Street bull, where they were impressive to see and though my journey I got see some great street performers putting on a show for people who were walking on by. It was nice to see people carry around their instruments around in the city as well, As it inspires me to continue to practice playing. And, who know, maybe one day I’ll come back to New York with my cello and play in the subway system or in Central Park while enjoying the moment. Using the New York subway system was pretty convent and cheap to get around the city. I normally have to wait between ten to fifteen minutes for a train to arrive a stop that I am at. The only issue that I have with the New York subway system, is that it get very confusing for someone who is not familiar with. The hotdogs that are sold on the street corner venders in New York are quite tasty to eat and filling.

I’ve been making a lot of interesting choices in my life, but they have been positive. I’ve been been taking a medication called terbinfine for my nails, it basically helps removes the fungus that is deep within some of my nails. I’m happy with the results as I have tried different home remedies like dipping my feet in bath salt or use tea tree oil, but I do notice that it only goes so far as it deals with the fungus on the top layer of your skin. There is some concerns when taking the medicane as it can affect how your liver works. I have to get the liver tested on regular bases. I’m hopping in the next month or so, my nails will be completely clear.

I recently got potato and new cat tree. At first, she seemed not interested in it what so ever. As time goes on, at first she would hide on the very bottom the tree, then she moved to the first floor of the tree, where I notice she likes eating the plastic leaves.
