So here I am, sitting in a train. Yes, one of the trains you can catch in a subway. I happen to be on the R train right now, and I’m going to ‘ride it’ all the way to Manhattan – Union Square, to be exact. From there, it is but a mere 5 minute walk to where I live!
I’m going to eat out tonight – dinner’s with Calvin. Sadly, I don’t think I’ve left a very good impression on him – I can’t be sure though. After all, he was drunk.
I wonder if the other people in this train are giving me strange looks – I certainly look lik ea bit of a creep, writing this and glancing around to gauge reactions; they must think I’m a kind of spy. Today was my brother’s birthday, and I must say, I’m pretty ashamed of how the day went. It was mostly be sleeping – up until two in the afternoon in fact. Is that not terrible!? I think I’ll play some music to listen to while I wait for my stop.
Yay, opened iTunes and plugged in my headphones at that last stop. Time to continue writing! But anyway, Calvin’s off to study abroad next semester, so I really won’t be seeing him for a long time! Not that we’re best friends or anything of even remotely that kind, but still, we’ve hung out a couple times!
Woodhaven Boulevard – Battery Plaza.
Awesome, I put the iTunes on shuffle. And now the train’s starting to fill up some more – I might have to put the laptop away soon, we’ll see. I cannot wait until Monday – Nabila’s coming over to NYU. And she’s all MINE! No long walks to Chinatown or anything. I’m not sure what we’ll do yet, I’ll see. I was on the bus before I got onto the subway and we drove by St. Johns, so I thought of her and gave her a call. Hopefully, she’ll ace that chem. Final, I have full faith in her!!
Grand Avenue – Newtown.
Hmm, this man just got on with a giant “Dirt Devil” vacuum all wrapped up as though it’s a Christmas present – haha cute, talk about presents with a message. I actually am fairly excited for our Secret Santa gift exchanges! I’m not sure what I’m getting my person yet, but I hope she’ll llove it! I have to get her something full of inside jokes though – or design my own add-ons to the main gift.
I should probably take a look at my pen – the one that has the subway map built in. Honestly, if there’s one thing I appreciate NYU for, it’s that. I’m also getting kind of worried now…wouldn’t want this laptop getting stolen. People probably thin k I’m a college student working on her paper here on the train to or from college – well they’re partially right. And I could be working on my paper, I’m just choosing not to.
I just put on this song by Birdman and Lil Wayne. It’s called “Hustle” I think I like it.
There’s an advertisement about Remy Martin right in front of me on this train – it reminds me of tonight; I want to have fun! It’s the one day I can actually relax until another hectic (first half) of Winter Break begins.
Roosevelt Avenue. Holy shit, 2142354 people just got on.
Rawr! I just turned down the contrast on my entry, but there are entirely too many people here. Uncomfort levels are rising, and I’m pretty sure the woman sitting next to me can read what I’m writing if she chooses to. Time to put this away! For now….
Roosevelt Avenue’s actually where I usually get off on my way home FROM NYU, because it’s a 5 minute drive away from my dad’s office. This journal entry is too full of references – where I am.
I don’t particularly like stalkers.
Meh, we’ve gotten this far, I might as well keep going I suppose. So in efforts to prevent people from reading my entry, I’ve turned down the magnification on this page to 40%. I also can’t see any typos I make, if I make them. And because journals are all about raw and untouched emotion, all of the typos I do make (that dWord doesn’t auto-correct, anyway) are going to stay here. It’s all part of the experience!
Hmm, I think I’m going to move to a more secluded stop. Brb! There we go, operation successful. I’m still going to leave the magnification down though, just in case.
Last night, I was up until 4:30 in the morning. Why? I was watching a movie with Andrew ❤
Andrew’s my boyfriend.
Isn’t that crazy….that I have a boyfriend. I never thought that’d happen again, although at the same time, I have to admit, I did rush into things. I rushed a lot.
54th Street. Or was it 42nd? I got distracted, grr. We’ll leave it open to interpretation.
I have rushed into the relationship. For one thing, I did tell myself that I would wait. And oh crap, the next subway stop’s already here. How’d that happen so fast!?
I wanted a boyfriend who went to NYU with me. But Andrew doesn’t study anywhere near me – he’s at UMBC this year. And yeah, he’s looked into schools in the city, but how probable is it that he’ll actually attend one here – not very likely at all. I guess I can’t do anything but wait. And be prepared to flip this laptop down and get out of the train when my stop comes around. And probably check when this stop comes around. Hmm. The fact that the R train’s running on a local schedule helped – we’ve stopped lots of places that it wouldn’t originally have to stop at. Wow I’ve already written two ful pages on Microsoft Word.
I should be getting there soon actually…Union Square is two stop saway from Herald Square, which is 34th Street. And we’re already on 36th! So all is going well.
So back to Andrew. He’s very sweet and adorable, and I’ve been dating him for all of about 6 days. I’m just scared of awkward silences…we have the ability to talk to each other for hours, but it’s just not the same as it used to be with Dan. With Dan, he would get equally as crazy and hyped up about something, and the two of us would go on for hours about the most random things.
With Andrew, I get the vibe that he just thinks I’m weird, and shoves my antics aside. But anyway, it’s too early to judge all that, and hopefully, we will last for longer. You know what I mean?
I want to learn how to jerk.
No seriously, have you seen all these new songs that are out, and are all about jerking? Freaking insane man, insane!
Wow, still only on Queenz Plaza; well, we’re finally almost into Manhattan. This is the last Queens stop I believe, but don’t take my word on that. Audio Push has that song out, called “Teach me How to Jerk”, complete with sexy video and all. When they dip, Sara and I die in frustration – their dips are sheer ecstasy to us, honestly!
Can’t believe that it’s almost Winter Break – I won’t be seeing my NYU lovies, as Gian calls us, until the middle of January – that’s kind of very far away. And although I long to meet my closest HS friends, I will miss all these people to death. Potheads included! I’m also pretty sure we stopped somewhere, because I’ve written far too much for usnot to have stopped. Then again, Queens Plaza is pretty far away from Lexington.
I ramble, I digress…apologies. Nobody wants to read a three page diary entry anyway. I should probably stop while I’m still ahead, and have an audience (aka Nabila).
I don’t even think anybody else knows of the URL…what’d be creepy is if I installed some sort of followers application and discovered that I do, in fact, have more than one reader. Creepy!!!
No but honestly, I can only ramble so much.
OH BUT WAIT. I was supposed to rant about watching a ovie last night. Andrew and I watched “Ever After”, and he was just a darling about it. He didn’t complain even once, although I know it was probably too sappy and romantic for his taste. The subway’s getting louder, because I had to turn the volume up on iTunes…I wonder if it’s too loud now. Oh well, I have goo d music, people will just have to deal with it!
I can’t write any more, DON’T MAKE ME!!!! I’m dyin ): And the train’s filling up. Okay seriously now though, peace.
Lexington Avenue – 59th Street.
Love you, I’ll post you up on livejournal when I get back to my dorm now!
Right after I plug you into a charger.
