I’ma write on this more often, ya dig? Myles is fuckin’ back.
Anyway…I’m currently in New York City for my Rhetoric, Memory, and Public Culture class. We’re here to experience this beautiful city during the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and reflect upon the atmosphere and festivities from a rhetorical standpoint. We’ve been graciously put up in the ASU loft on 24th St, which I assure you is the tits. There’s 12 of us (9 girls, 3 guys.)
I love New York. It’s cliche, but I really do. I fell in love with this town the first time I came here, and if it weren’t expensive as fuck to live here, I’d move in tomorrow.
I’m gonna write here every night during this trip to help reflect on my experiences and shit, so bear with me and enjoy.
I flew into LaGuardia this afternoon and took a cab into the city. After settling into the loft, I walked around Manhattan for a few hours with a pair of lovely ladies in my group who wanted to buy a camera (they never did) and took in the town. We walked a good way down Park and Madison and by the Empire State Building (I’m goin’ up in that bitch tomorrow night) before returning to the loft. Other activities today included a legit vegetarian Indian dinner (one out of FIVE veggie Indian places in a row on one street block) with Dr. Spurlock (my professor) and another sweet girl. Tomorrow will contain more adventure, which I will surely pass on to you.
