It’s been about 10 years I have taken any kind of mass transit. I moved to an area in Staten Island which had every bus imaginable near it. When I moved back I wanted to make sure I could get up and go with ease.
When I was pregnant with my son I would take the express bus back and forth to work. A quick 30 minute ride into the city with no hassle.
After having my son, lugging a stroller and car seat on to a crowded bus didn’t have the same appeal. So I got a car! Her name was Lola. Thinking about it now I really loved that name. My chiuhuha has been named Lola and I hadn’t had that damn car in 5 years.
Traffic in New York is bad enough but to drive in it, is so much worse. A 25 minute ride usually can take up to 2 hrs on a regular school day. On a good day about an hour. Coming home at my 12:30, takes only 25 minutes door to door. After 3:00pm could take about an hour.
TRAFFIC SUCK IN NYC
This week I am having car trouble. So because it is 6:30 am I have to walk down the block(which is only a few, but at 53 degrees feels a lot colder) to purchase a metro card.
What ever happen to putting coins in the box. So outdated!! Who would have $6.50 in change lying around. Not me!
I got exited as I wait for the bus. I get to sit back and read or write on a blog. Which I chose the latter as you see. I’m not worried about traffic or people cutting me off. I think I might just go back to not having to worry. This is so much better.
Everybody is in there own little world. Not like on a regular city local bus. Which high school kids can be loud and annoying. Everybody reading or listening to music.
I remember feeling good going to work before my car. Having no worries in a world. I might just have to let this soak in for a few days. At least while my car is getting fixed.
