Almost missed the train. The taxi took forever to fetch me so I literally bought a ticket and got straight on the train. Now when my family was here when we took the train to New York Penn Station, we would get off at Long Branch and get on another train to Penn station. But they didn’t say anything on the intercom about that transfer so I just read my book.
Turns out I was meant to get off at Newark and get onto another train to carry on to Penn station. No one told me that. The person who took my ticket must have assumed I was going to Newark Penn Station, not New York. Ugh. So the train stops, everyone gets off and I’m in Hoboken. Where the hell is Hoboken.
Good thing it was just a couple subway stops from where I would have been getting off anyways. So I had a fantastic walk through the city to meet my cousin, his boyfriend and his friends.
I witnessed a really cool moment of humanity on the train though. This young man had been late and gotten on the train before it left and didn’t have time to buy a ticket. He thought he could buy one on the train but the conductor lady was being a b*tch cos she didn’t have change for him and wanted to throw him off at the next stop.
This other man gave him the cash so he could get a ticket and get a ride to the city. It was something that I saw and straight away thought I needed to blog about it. It was like I needed to see that human kindness
I had an amazing day in the city. I bought myself a Michael Kors watch, something I’d wanted to buy for myself for ages. I told myself I’d get it as a reward once I’d worked hard for a couple months. It felt good to have reached my goal:) I’m obsessed with it. Every time I look at it I still can’t believe I own something so pretty and it makes me proud that I earned it.
I had my first Burrito. It was delicious.
On the train ride home I had another awesome good karma moment. A woman gave me a bunch of Halls because I was coughing so much. I was probably just annoying the shit out of everyone but I still appreciated the effort 😛
Till next time NYC. ♡
