New York State of Mind

So I got back from New York City yesterday, and was depressed all day. I’m still depressed. I hate being in Boston and not in New York. I really need to move and change and not do the same ol’ shit. Everything here is getting on my nerves, I’m itching to move.

Regardless, my trip was great. I had a prolonged Fung Wah ride there because of accident traffic, but I got there around 6:30 and my sister met me at Canal Street. We went out for dinner at some Scottish bar in Midtown with Steve and his nephew. That sounds so strange, like we were drinking with a 5 year old. And when his nephew said he was hanging out with his uncle, it sounded like Steve was a 45 year old man. After we ate, we went to a bar in the Upper East Side where I decided to drink half the cocktail menu. Seriously, I had about 5 out of 15 drinks, which isn’t half, but 2 more and I would have been golden. I would also have been dead. I was trashed when I got in the cab.

I woke up with a wonderful headache and nausea the next day, but I went to the MOMA, and my sister got us in for free because she works at a fancy law firm with a corporate membership. We engaged in culture. I bought things at the gift shop, like a sponge that smiled, and a bouncy ball with glitter, and a postcard. Hey, it’s culture.

I bought expensive clothes at Banana Republic. Then, it started POURING and thundering and lightning – it was ridiculous! Betsy and I ran to Ruth’s Chris steakhouse for expensive food, but so so so so so so so good! Then we went to see August: Osage County per Jeremy’s request, and well, I don’t even know how to put it into words. It was the best play I’ve ever seen. It was SO good. It was funny, sad, heartbreaking, wonderful, all the right elements at all the right places. I highly recommend you go and see it if you’re in New York.

I got on the 11:30 bus yesterday and had to sit next to someone and was sad all the way home. Then I had rehearsal and I was sad. Then I had dinner with my family, and I was sad. I’m just sad. Stupid Boston! Stupid reality! I can't wait to move and Barrett All in NYC.
