New York City May 22nd 2008
How do I get myself into these situations? I know I was forgetting something and by something I mean my pin # for my prepaid credit card for cash withdrawls.
My expenses costed me more then I thought, even though my cab to Aldershot was less then expected.
First food on the the train was outrageously expensive. I should have brought more of my own food. Then getting stuck in traffic from Pen Station to the hostel costed me 23$ with tip. The when I got to the hostel I found out my room price I was quoted did not include taxes, not to mention they did not have a record of my reservation. Despite sending me an email conformation a week earlier.
I do not have access to money until tomorrow when I get paid. How much? Not 100% sure.
The train ride down was fine. Filled with friendly people, snorers and crying babies. However even a long trip, it leaves you with plenty of time to think.
I’ve been single by choice for the last 2 1/2 years since Matt and I broke up. I had stayed single 1. because I never wanted to be hurt again the way Matt hurt me, blah blah blah, 2. freedom, I’ve never wanted anything or anyone holding me back or giveme a reason to hold myself back from travel and adventure.
Of course at times it would have been nice to have someone with me or to miss a little while a way. But in the end I remind myself about the miss oportunities I had while with Matt and how it great it felt to be free of any guilt of leaving someone at home.
