Episode 15

This week with SamWriteNow:

My best friend is leaving to Virginia soon and it’s an emotional week. We spent Monday going through old pictures, like when I turned 21 (a week after her) and bought my first beer.

This girl has been by my side since freshman year of high school and thankfully for our last names, we were seat-buddies. She asked for a pen on day one and never returned it! I’m glad she didn’t.

I never thought I’d ever have a real friend, like that down-for-anything kind of friend who just knows how to literally finish your sent— she would’ve said “ences” if this wasn’t a blog post.

On a brighter note, I started learning this clay motion juggling technique. It’s hypnotizing when you watch it but the training videos are sort of cool. See for yourself.

Tuesday was spent at the voting booth, duh!

Then it was straight to the bowling alley for much needed juggling with my sister.

I even got to teach a newbie.

On Wednesday, I wore pink.

Well, just my jacket.

Thursday is always the longest day of the week….so I won’t talk about it, just press play.

The Friday commute was super smooth and thanks to my decision to switch bus stops, I had the entire front seat to myself! It was probably the holiday weekend that assisted in my comfort.

The train was amusing. I never saw a dog in a backpack before.

And lunch was another fun experience! Always something new!

And that about wraps up another interesting week in the city. Check back for updates on my juggle journey!

Episode 10

Happy Friday! I made two weeks in the city and I’m so excited!

It was an eventful day, so here’s a solid recap:

My mom came to work with me today. She decided to work out of the beautiful Manhattan office and see how “the squad” was adjusting to our new roles.

We caught the SIM22 and walked down to the building. I wanted her to get the full city experience like I had.

We stopped for breakfast and did the tour of the area. She loved it. (Obvi!)

Lunchtime

I took her down to Moe’s in the underground. And if anyone knows what that is like during the afternoon, you’ll understand just how this next scene unfolded:

TGI-Almost Friday!

Last night I went to Dave & Busters with Mr. Carter for his friend’s birthday. I got chicken & waffle sliders (with bacon) and it was like nothing I’ve ever tasted before–I would definitely go back just to order them again. (Everyone knows how I feel about waffles.)

And today:

A little different adventure as my boyfriend drove in with me, (he was working near me for the day), and I got to experience the real-deal traffic outside the bus lane.

My commute with Mr. Carter was well-worth the slight traffic. The SI Expressway wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been and once we got to the bridge, I was able to capture some really nice pictures.

I absolutely love bridges!

Episode 1

The 6AM bus came at 6:23…

The new SIM10 stopped twenty-something times before it even caught a glimpse of the Verrazano bridge.

Once we began our slow merge onto the top level, a pitchy lady screamed from outside the bus. Before I could attempt to make out what she was saying through the muffled traffic, the bus driver yelled back, “I’m sick!” And sniffled for the 100th time. The mumbling of words happened again and he grunted “We’re at capacity!” He continued to make his way over to the left lane.

I didn’t hear the driver speak again for the rest of the trip.
