Nathan And Bongos



So this is my first New York City story. It's been only one day, and I have more than enough material to last a week on my site. There are so many things that happened and it keeps me laughing nonstop.

Above is a picture of my friend and mentor Nathan that I took while we were on the subway.

Once I arrived in New York, Nathan and I both agreed to meet each other at the Penn Station, which was a little farther from where I was. On my way there, I had to learn how to use the Air Train to get over to Jamaica, which turned out to be a pain in the butt. I got off two stops earlier, and had to wait another ten minutes for the next train to take me to where I was.

Later on, I learned how to use a Metro Card in order to exit the place I was at. Then I rode around with my backpack and luggage bag to find the train to take me all the way to Penn Station. The whole entire process was very funny. I didn't let it get to me. You live and you learn. To be honest with you, I was having a lot of fun with it. The whole process just made me totally feel right at home. I was falling in love with New York by the second.

Eventually, I finally made it to Penn Station and that is where I finally ran into Nathan. It was a wonderful meeting one another. We have been working together for four years now. I feel completely comfortable being around him. Even though we are slightly different from one another we always have a lot of fun together.

While on the subway, Nathan was trying to get some sleep. He admitted to not getting enough sleep, and yet, there I was wide awake and I only slept four hours at least. But I let him take his nap and didn't talk for a couple of seconds. When I said a couple of seconds, I truly meant seconds.

All of a sudden, a man arrives on the subway with a some bongos. He was singing about New York while playing it like a maniac. I couldn't help but laugh. Here I am, trying to let Nathan sleep. Then all of a sudden, a distraction comes in the craziest way.

This is my first New York City story. There will be many more to come. I have way more than enough material to last for a while.
