Back From New York!!!

New York is an amazing city full of so many different types of people, and cultures, that you see people dancing in the street,20081105_ftgreenparty_560x373.jpg
singing, shouting,

walking through central park... 
the options are endless!  With so many kinds of people, you almost feel like you could be anyone, and do anything you want.  I got to practice the very little french that I know with some other tourists which was fun.  My favorite part of New York was Broadway, we saw West Side Story, and The Phantom of the Opera.  Both were fantastic!  Though, I really liked (LOVED!!!!!!) The Phantom of the opera.
My journey brought me two pairs of black pants, a shirt, and a Sharks t-shirt (West side story), and a scarf (from Chinatown) which were all great deals.  I have seriously considered living in this wonderful city, and now I'm quite sure that I want to, and hopefully will... eventually:)
If you are planning to visit New York I advise to go to Manhattan, walk through central park, go to time square (the forever21!), Chinatown,  a broadway show, Take a double-decker bus tour, and Visit the Empire State building, and the Statue of liberty!  All of these I enjoyed doing.  But it is also cool to walk around without a map or a destination, and just see where you end up!

Off to New York....

In just a few minutes I will be on my way to New York.  A journey of about 12 hours.  Thankfully I am not the one driving, so I will be able to read, and sleep and listen to my on the road CD mix.  I am excited to see NY for the first time, and I think it will be fun!

Don't eat three doughnuts in a row.

I have learned a very important lesson today, and that is that you shouldn't eat 2 jelly doughnuts, a glazed doughnut, and two mini muffins at the same time, because it makes you sick.  I shall no longer buy treats in big batches because I have no control.  What can I say, I'm addicted, but I think I actually went into a sugar coma.  Lesson is learned:)

Spending Quiet days....

Today is a quiet, dreary day of fog , and what looks like rain.  I'd like to spend it sitting outsde reading or writing, but it's too cold for that.  At least its not too hot outside, that's always a positive.  It makes me sad, I had to get my comforter out last night, it was that cold.  It's not summer anymore, and I  know that I should be glad, but summer seemed never ending, like maybe it would last forever.  It would be nice to have not gone back to school, and spend my summer days the way that I like.  But I am forgetting the plus to fall, the leaves changing color, the fall fashion, the attmosphere.  Don't get me wrong, fall is my favorite time of year, but sometimes I wish I could just stop in one moment and stay there just a little longer.

The world of Zine.....

After reading the book: Hard Love  by: Ellen Wittinger I have learned about the world of Zine.  What is a Zine you may ask?  Well a zine is a self published magazine that is about whatever you want it to be, it can showcase your writing, be an art zine, anything you want.  I have started to write a zine myself, oddly enough it's named.... The unincredibly fast life of abigail....:)  In these Zines, I have read different poems, short stories, and play scripts.  Oddly enough my local library had a short stack of free Zines in the corner, which I never knew about.  Check out your local library, bookseller, or online to enter the world of zine.  Or you could even start one yourself.  I have taken this challange, and will soon be showcasing my first zine right here on The Incredible Still Life of Abigail.
