I've had a blast in NY but I'm ready to get back home to Cali!

Dude i'm so tired right now. We've been walking for like two to three hours every day in Manhattan. My legs and hips are really sore. I went to the Guggenheim museum today in Manhattan and was pretty dissapointed. The exhibitions there were lame. It was the kind of art where I was like what? I dont get it. Anyways so I kinda feel it was a waste of thirty six bucks.

I had a great time last night going to the club APT last night and I got to meet Prince Paul who has worked with Jay Z, Queen Latifah, De La Soul and so many other people. Supposedly hes good friends with Chris Rock and produced a bunch of music for him. Hes working on a childerens album right now which I think is kinda interesting. He was super chill and down to earth which was really cool. I gave him my album and he said that he would get back to me and give me feed back on it. So hopefully he does get back to me...and he likes it. Its crazy how many famous people are accessible here in NY. The weird part is how New Yorkers dont take advantage of that. Its like they take it for granted. Its weird. Maybe its because they dont really care that they are famous and they are just unphased about it all? Who knows! But for me I'm like dude lets network and I dont get intimdated with talking to people even if they are famous. At the end of the day they are just people and they often face many similar problems as us.

I'm going back home to California on Thursday and am excited to come home. I miss being in my own bed and being at home. I really miss my animals too hehe. My cats are going to be so needy when I get home.

I really do love New York though. If I ever moved here I'd probably live in Kui Gardens in Queens its so nice. Its full of really nice homes that look like Palo Alto. All of the homes are super old and full of charachter. Not only that but they are much cheaper than homes in California. Prices for California homes are crazy. Plus its only thirty minutes from Manhattan. I'm going to start doing voice overs and teaching art classes in 2009. I'm so motivated with getting my band together and start gigging as well.

I think when you see that anything is possible in life it really changes your thinking. Its interesting because I am seeing some people that have kinda given up on their lives and they are resigned and cynical. Its so sad for me to see people like that. Now that I see that anything is possible....I'm taking that into the rest of my life. Other people have commented at how I'm completely a different person now. I haven't seen any of my husband's friends for a year now. This year has been really tough but instead of getting over whelmed by things I have learned from my mistakes and I have really progressed.
