New York, New York - The Road
Not All Who Wander Are Lost

Start spreading the news... I'm leaving in a few days.  So I've decided to go to New York next week and see some Broadway musicals.  Avenue Q, Wicked, The Lion King, Blue Man Group are on the agenda for me.  It should be pretty fun.  It will be the last time I'll get some free time to vacation for awhile as I'll be starting school in a few weeks.
I'll see the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, all that New Yorky stuff. I've never been to New York.

I spent today buying tickets and hotel stuff, I've got to hit a travel agency tommorrow to get airline tickets as the online stuff isn't getting close enough to what I'm looking for.  I'd rather avoid 8 hour layovers or flying to 8 cities to get there.

Yesterday I did tons of stuff, met with my career counselor from the placement center in the morning, got some acupunture in the afternoon, did the LJ meetup thing at the Parlor in the evening, which was hard as hell to find.  I almost gave up on it after driving around looking at it for 30 minutes.  I did find it and we ended up getting some ice cream with the group after the band started playing and we couldn't hear ourselves think.  Meet a few nice people, even though I had trouble hearing everything over the loud jukebox so I ended up pretty quiet most of the night even though I tried to mingle a bit.  I should have got some kind of sign in list going, as I don't remember half the people who told me their LJ names.

I apparently need some assertiveness and mingle training, from my tests and my experiences on the day.  I don't know if I'll keep doing acupuncture at 6o bucks a pop as I'm not really noticing improvement post needeling.  It was worth a shot anyway.

Assertiveness training? I don't think so.

Have fun in New York.
