Back From America

Well seeing as I said I would make a thread about my trip when I got back, here it is!

Well after I landed in JFK it took me a while to see Solking again as it was really crowded when I walked through. I mean its no wonder I couldn’t see him. But He walked over to me again so that’s cool.

When we got back to his, I was so glad to be able to just relax and forget about work and studying for a while. It was totally what I needed as I don’t tend to relax that much at home. Yes I sit in front of my PC all day but that doesn’t mean its all care free etc. I study online and when I’m not studying I’m trying to get my skills in Photoshop up to a good enough standard that I can get a job in Digital art and web design.

But anyway…While I was in New York, Eddie took me around Far Rockaway, Manhattan, and the Bronx Zoo. It had been so long that I had been in Far Rockaway, yet it didn’t take me long to adjust to the surroundings. I got used to people driving on the “wrong” – yes Eddie the WRONG!! side of the road lol. I even got use to the currency.. I guess keeping some from my last visit helped a little.

Well for my birthday Eddie and I went to Times Square and had lunch at TGI Fridays where I had a Mudslide and Eddie had a Long Island Ice Tea. The mudslide was so nice I was tempted to get another drink but I’m glad I didn’t because when we got the bill, it all came to $64 for two drinks and two meals. After the meal we went for a walk around the shops etc but I didn’t buy anything as I was kind of low on money in my wallet 😛

Then for our next trip Eddie took me to Ground Zero. I would have liked to have gone to the Tourist centre but really it wasn’t well marked, so instead we walked around the village and then up to 14th Ave. to the station to go home because it was raining and we were both getting tired from walking about so much.

One weekend we went to Youth Ministries event out of state, to which I don’t know where but it was fun. Even though when the speakers were talking, they kept changing from English to Spanish. So poor Eddie had to translate some of it for me. but it was all fun. In the afternoon, they had Building 429 play so at least that was some songs I could hear and the recognise the words for.

For the following week, we went to the Bronx zoo. It did take us a while to get there because the signs for the entrances is pathetic. But once we got there, we went everywhere! even if the animals were no where to be seen. But I got to see the Tiger and the Polar bar so I am happy. I think Eddie was happy that he got to see the Turtles 😛 so it was all good. Although the sea lions were just as cute but we couldn’t take any of them home T_____T

Otherwise, we made sure that we left the apartment once every two days. So we were cooped up most of the trip. Even if it was to the library, Dunkin Donuts and to get some soda 😛 it was worth the fresh air.

Then when the day came for us to leave, it was strange that we had nine hours to go yet we were ready. The trip was really worth it. Its just that all the pictures can be seen on my facebook page, for those who have it and have me added. Otherwise, I don’t think you will be able to see all the pictures.


well its finalized, I am going on vacation 15th March to go and see my wonderful fiancé in New York. Hopefully the pictures will be better and I won’t look so dead in them.

I haven’t had a holiday in two years and I really need one and its a bonus that I get to spend time with my fiancé Solking so its worth it. The difference with this vacation is that I don’t have to worry about baby sitting but I get to go site seeing. I really want to see Ground Zero, as I did a project about at University as well as the Bombings in London a few years back.

Its cheered me up that I have finally brought my ticket and insurance. I just have to study as much as I can before I go so I don’t have to do much studying when I’m there.
