Good morning! I tried to sleep in but to no avail. Folks are up at butt crack of dawn to get breakfast. I'm so tired I don't even wanna eat so I set my clock till another 2 hours. (8:30). I'm up again at 8 because someone slammed a locker shut. I really wanted to redo the Book of Mormon audition. For some reason I refused to accept that yesterday was Thursday and I couldn't go. Last night I convinced myself that I still had tomorrow (today) to do it. I look at Facebook and people keep saying TGIF. And now I'm confused, looking back at my calendar. Crap it's FRIDAY! I have an interview at 10 and I'm sitting here on the toilet like I got nothing else to do! smh See ya!
*UPDATE * in my rush I forgot my case with my resumes. smh I took the wrong shuttle van so into a cab and I'm sure this cab driver is taking me for my money. He has no visible meter.
So I made it! Only 15 minutes late! smh I hate being late. I'm trying not to freak out because I think I lost my brief case. it had all my music, VA paperwork, military records and passport in it. The van I got on to leave the the shelter may have it or its in my room. Please let it be in my room. One the bright side, I was at Penn Station! How weird is the parking on this place?! These carts have some of the best hotdogs!
It's in my room!! This old lady just it walked up to me to introduce herself. lol She did that when I got here. ha!
I got up from a good hour nap to go to dinner. I smell fish blocks. I get into the line and a lady asks me for an ID. I don't have one.(shelter ID) I tell her I'm new. A guy in front of me asks If I have regular ID and she should take that. Then the old lady says well "she can't come in in flip flops. Toes must be covered in socks at least ". Then she says I should go to the front and get a pass to eat. What did I do? Changed into my shoes, grabbed my phone and left in search of real food. Screw all that! I was told there was a deli close by so I walk to the left towards lights. After about 10-15 minutes a guy comes from behind me (men walk faster) and I decide to ask him where the deli is. Wouldn't you know it, he said I went in the wrong direction. smh Since I'm already out I decided to walk around and eat at a local spot. I pass lots of closed places, expensive looking places and gas stations while on the phone with Nicole. I figured I should find my way back since I see familiar stuff in the distance. I end up walking across a bridge on the other side of Amtrak so I know I'm close but on the wrong street so I turn back and go right. After 2 more blocks I see a 24hrs diner and a corner deli! The menu made me miss home. It was no Waffle House! They flattened my scrambled eggs and used square cheese. The waffle was good but the had flattened half mashed potatoes instead of hash browns. Smh But it was better than what was offered! After I left I went to the deli and got candy! (like I needed it) Broke out the GPS and got walking directions. I was only 10 minutes away! Turns out, the bridge I was on intersected with the street I was supposed to take back to the shelter! My sense of direction IS better than GPS! Ha! I smuggled candy in my boobs! Good night World!
