Garden State

I have been in New Jersey for the last couple of days, but looking forward to going into the city!

I arrived to Newark Airport and stayed in Irivington, NJ, the first night. It was an airport hotel with a shuttle, but it was definitely not in a great place :S The front desk was behind glass. I was supposed to get a room with one king bed and ended up being given a room with two queen beds and a couch -far too much room for one person! It was a bit lonely-like being a lone individual with that much space! Since then I've been out in Englewood which is a wealthy area where several esteemed individuals live. It's pretty nice out here, but again, looking forward to begin my NYC wanderings! I plan to walk all over Manhattan and through Central Park to find a nice place to sit and read. As well, seeking out the street, can't remember what it's called, that has the 5 floor Abercrombie since the Canadian dollar is now on par with the American dollar, totally worth it to make a purchase :)

Lining up in Times Square tomorrow for Broadway tickets, *fingers crossed* I can get an ok price for one of the shows I'd like to see!

I wanted to see both Jersey Boys and Avenue Q but didn't realize how expensive tickets are (minimum $100) if just bought off the website. I'm just hoping to see Avenue Q now, for the matinee tomorrow afternoon.

I bought three pairs of shoes today -a nice pair of supportive sandles not flimsy types, a pai of blowfish and a dressy pair of rocket dogs all for $100 -I wish Canada had DSW! All the shoe stores would go out of business if we did though. But I'm ok with that!

It's very humid here and didn't sleep until 6am last night/morning. It's making my hair go slightly wonky, but now that it's back to brunette, it still looks ok when it's down and the curls aren't perfect. Although the humidity doesn't really agree with me, it was nice to wear a tanktop today and not be cold at all! Also put on sunscreen for the the first time this season :) (Yes, a happy face; sunscreen is my reality :P It's sort of yucky to put on, but needing to put it on means the weather is great outside :) )

I've had a couple of articles in the Independent published lately and will post those soon.
