Day 1 (It’s actually like day 3 or something but it’s my day 1.):
I got out of school at 3 and took the D train with Miranda. I dramatically read a story she found in her phone. It was pretty hilarious. I got off at West 4th Street and walked to Washington Square Park. Luke arrived and then Charlotte got there soon after. We went to the box office and asked about tickets. They basically said to come back later. We went to Luke’s house and then went back. We played cards and Super Smash Bros Brawl at Luke’s. It was fun. We got back at the box office and they said that we could start forming the line. Just sitting on the sidewalk in front was cool. Luke and I went to get Wafels and Dinges. My waffle didn’t want to agree with my stomach but my stomach triumphed. A line was formed when we got back but it was good.
While waiting in front, we got free tickets to the AMNH. We were also the first to get tickets to the event. Oliver Sacks and other people talking about how music reawakens the brain. We were pretty worried that Angela wouldn’t arrive in time to get tickets, but she did and it was good.
The entire talk was good. Oliver Sacks is a really cute old man. Like really. Stanley Jordan played really good music that did invoke a lot of emotion. It was all intriguing. I took 4 pages of notes and I plan on taking more at other events. Afterwards, we chilled out and I got home at midnight. Totally worth it.
Today was a very good day.
