I have finally completed the most crucial step required of living in New York City: I took the subway. One of my co-workers was nice enough to walk me through the route I would take from my office to my apartment, and it was really easy. I’ll definitely start taking the subway home from work regularly. My bus route at night is very congested – it goes down the street with all the fancy shops, so there are lots of tourists around effing things up. The subway drops me off 5 blocks from my apartment, but I don’t really mind walking those blocks when I think about how much time I’m saving by not taking the bus. In the morning, however, the bus is my savior. I barely make it on time to work, so I would really be late if I had to walk to the subway.

Today has flown by. I don’t really know why, I haven’t done anything particularly engrossing. But, I’m not complaining. I want it to be Thursday! That’s when Mike gets here. So anything that makes my days go by faster I’m in favor of. But, of course, now that I’ve said that, the rest of today, tomorrow, and Thursday will drag on. I can’t wait for him to get here. Luckily it is supposed to be warmer when he’s here. If you can call 40-something degrees warm…It’s weird that suddenly I can. Anything is warmer than 21 degrees – it was 21 last Tuesday night, and I was sick and had to go out and I thought I would just DIE from the cold.

I bought a coat today. That’s probably the most exciting thing I’ve done all day. Man, this is truly a boring entry. But it goes with the day. Tonight I have to go to a show for work. It never fails that when I have other stuff to do, there is something do to for work. It also never fails that I hear about these things at the last minute. I don’t really feel like going to a show tonight, but I feel like I really ought to. There will be other people there from my office so I can’t get away with not showing up. Damn! I hate that. I guess that’s the price I pay for being in an office with others. I lose my anonymity. Oh well. I think I can still get some stuff done before the show starts. I hope!

Happy Birthday to Mike! I love you!
