NYC, NYC, and more NYC

During spring break, the first week of March in 2006, Devon, Khalid, Kevin and I hopped in my car for a road trip to New York City. My first real road trip. On the drive out I remember trying to find the right time to tell them about my big plans. So I spilled my idea, the very idea that I’m living out now. For some reason I remember them all giving me blank stares as if they were thinking, “Oh sure, whatever you say Bugsy.” At the end of a great week I remember telling Devon, “I have a feeling I’ll make it back here again sooner than later.”
It took nine months to make it back to New York City after that first trip. And what a trip it was. Sure I dreamed about being on a talk show, being flown to NYC, and having everything paid for for a few days. I never thought it would actually happen. And when it did, wow what a trip! I sure didn’t expect a surprise of my family being there. So that was my second trip to NYC, experiencing it in a way not many people get to.
Once again, I have made it back to NYC. Three nights spent between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Once again I have a feeling that it won’t be long before I make it back again. Who knows, maybe work at an advertising agency someday in NYC just to try it. It’s just enormous and I want to see it all and experience it all. Sometimes I sit back and try to think of more ideas of a project like this that I could work on in NYC.
As big as New York City is, it felt great to see a few familiar things, which I have not seen in a long time. New York City is the second place on the trip that I have been back to a third time, the other is Breckenridge, CO.
