BYE BYE NEW YORK – it’s been the best of times, it’s been the worst of times.
I’m loving the ad for the movie winter’s tale – “This is not a true story it’s a love story”. Unfortunatelly this is not a love story, this is a New York story.
I was only planning on staying in New York for 2 days for my meetings and come back later in the spring to enjoy the city. Since I am not really a fan of cold weather. My first 2 days in New York was perfect (minus some robbing set backs, street smart isn’t my nickname.) The apartment was perfect, the sun was shining, New York was exactly what I had pictured it to be. Yellow cabs and traffic lights, rough streets and people in timbs screaming at each other.. My only question was where is Drake? (Yes, he is my only celeb crush.) I hated Times Square of course for the same reasons I hate Hollywood blvrd. But still a must see. I took a quick look at Central Park. Would die for a horse and carriage ride there like Carrie and Big. “Not corny. It’s classic.” Maybe next time!
After my 2 days in New York was over I had planned for me to go to L.A on the 12th. Unfortunately the cold NYC weather took things to a whole other level the day I was going. A major snowstorm hit the city and everything became pure chaos. Traffic was insane, cars couldn’t come through and got stock in snow and I missed my flight.. And since all the flights were getting cancelled because of the bad weather and Valentines Day was coming up and everyone wanted to go home to their loved ones there were no new flights for under 1000-2000 dollars. I mean good god.
Sad only begin to describe how I felt standing alone at JFK when I had missed the checkin literary with 5 minutes. I was hoping to get in on the next flight as a standby so I sent my whole bag to L.A with all my things but there was no way anyone was getting on as a standby for those flights. So now my bag was in L.A but I wasn’t. I spent the next 2 days crying on the phone to a very tired man in L.A. And I got to spend Valentines Day in New York all alone. I am so sorry, J face.
