Howdy folks, it’s been awhile. Well, not really, just a month. It’s not like anyone has missed my quirky little blog entries anyway. One person did and I will be letting him know about this one later.

I am blogging to you all from the city that never sleeps. And I thought folks was bullshitting when they said that.They really weren’t. I have been in New York for just about a month. I came to visit my boyfriend. Yes, people, Michelle finally got herself a man. Go tell it on the mountains!!!!

I found my Boricua Prince right on Poz Personals. I should say he found me because I had all but given up to be honest. A shameless plug for the personals I know but it’s about time that something went right for me. We had been talking for a few months before I decided to take a chance and come to New York. And I have not regretted it since. 

Now New York is a total 360 compared to Erie. I noticed that as soon as I stepped off the train at Penn Station. People----everywhere as far as the eye can see. People of every color, I almost thought for a second that I was in a human version of a Crayola Crayon box. But I love the diversity of everything here.

My next experience was riding the subway. I was dreading it because I had heard the stories about rush hour on the subway. Unfortunately, I encountered it and never want to again. The plus side is sometimes you get entertainment while riding the train. Since being here I have been seranaded (sp?) by a Hispanic man, felt like I was in Jamaica while listen to three men play the congas, and listened to a woman sing “Respect” by Aretha Franklin. Damn, I almost felt like I was on American Idol. Wouldn’t you know I didn’t have my camera with me.

Not to mention that there is so much more to be gained here in New York. I can see myself doing so much better here. And there is so many places that will help put me on the right track. I have decided to move to New York. I will be a New York resident by the end of summer. Since being here, I have been getting my things in order for the move.

I guess what they say is true, it’s about location, location, location.
