The following passage is from the article New York City Welcomed Record 58.3 Million Visitors in 2015
NYC & Company President and CEO Fred Dixon reported that New York City’s total of 58.3 million visitors last year was 1.8 million more than 2014, with the overall estimate consisting of 46 million domestic and 12.3 million international travelers…
Not only did New York City break its all-time visitors record in 2015, but the domestic and international travelers numbers also broke their respective previous records.
Let me describe the scene for you…
This was my commute home today… hardly a space to breath. This is what was going through my head…
Why is there always a problem on the trains. I get out of work early and this is what I have to deal with. When the hell is this train ever this packed? Fuck I hate trains. Don’t put your arms up if you know you didn’t put some type of deodorant on. What the fuck is wrong with people. Why is this asshole in the blue shirt standing in my personal space. Does no one understand boundaries. I can’t breath. Okay five more stops to go. You did five. You can do five more. You got this. Omg. I can’t breath. The smell. So bad. Maybe everyone will get off the next stop. Oh holy hell no more just got on. Can’t they see there is no more standing room! I don’t get it. Why why why! Get me off this fucking train!
Finally gets off train and see line for the bus going down the block…
*Yes seems I love that f word… prefect sentence enhancer!
I’m sitting here at my computer desk at work wondering what happened to the past week!?! It flew by in less than a blink of an eye. A fog. Now here I am back in the jungle with a front row seat to the shit show and I am already thinking about my next trip! Continue reading
I did something yesterday I never really do… I went out exploring on my own. I took a guided bus tour to Red Rock Canyon and it was worth every penny… minus the annoyance of the bus getting a flat tire. He ended the tour early which was a bummer but we were pretty much nearly done anyway. Plus he dropped me off at my hotel instead of the one I took the monorail to for the pick-up. Continue reading
I made it I can’t believe I’m on an actual vacation! I just got to say though what the hell happened to me? I don’t remember being so anxious in life or terribly claustrophobic. I’m grateful so much that the middle seat was empty. The second I sat down I began crying and my heart was beating fast. I started to settle down about 30 minutes in while we were over Pennsylvania. I put the flight tracker on the screen in front of me and that helped. I also read which took my mind off the flight. I sat by the window because I wanted to look out. Continue reading
Dear lovely readers,
My apologies for my seemingly absence. I have not posted as much as I would have liked too in recent weeks. I have several things drafted up and ready to be finished but I have been swamped at work. I am one person doing the work of two and I am leaving for vacation tomorrow so I had to make sure I wasn’t leaving them hanging on some upcoming events we are having. The day after I return we are having a faculty award ceremony and I had to make sure the catering was done, a retirement cake ordered, the awards were printed and jacketed, RSVP’s were counted, and room set-up submitted. All is done with 25 minutes of work left before I am off to Las Vegas!
I have nervous energy as I mentally prepare to fly for the first time in over 10 years. I also never gone this far but I need this so bad! I haven’t gone away away in the same decade! Any flying advice? I have an appointment with my therapist today and she is going to show me some breathing techniques in case I need them 🙂
