David: how's nyc?
how was hong kong
David: boring and awesome
how is the internship?
me: awesome, i love everything i'm doing
i'm in a cafe in the west village right now
this is so cool
do you think you'll be able to come up here?
David: ha badass
yeah i think so. when would be a good time?
David: alright then i'll start looking up tickets. i don't have a job and do nothing everyday. btw guess what i found out eariler?
David: i'm transferring to emory
me: what holy shit
David: yeah, i literally didn't give it a second thought. i noly applied because my parents forced me to
me: whoa that's so cool
maybe your parents fixed it so you'd get in
maybe to make up for all of the years of abusing you
David: that would actually be awesome and might even redeem their poor parenting
me: it would for me
i'm at a cafe and there is a crazy person who keeps talking to himself, he is bald and really fat with fat rolls in the back of his head
now he's talking about his invented girlfriend
that's so awesome though
did you do really well in college?
David: man now that's awesome, can't get that anywhere else
me: you should come here as soon as you can
David: no, which is the really weird part. i have the exact same gpa as i did in high school, which is a 3.1
me: he just called me tom brady
that's literally a crazy thing to happen
even though a 3.1 is better in college than in high school right
David: you should take that cas a compliment
me: i am choosing to
this is amazing, i am facing a window that looks directly out onto mcdougal street (which is bob dylan's street in the village)
you should come here as soon as you can
David: min-blowingly cool
will do, just got to clear it with parents, which should be easy considering i jus tpulled off a fucking miracle
me: hahaha i bet this was a great father's day for papa cao
David: close, xu
me: even better
David: it's funny filling out forms with his name, especially when they ask for only the first initial
so what'd you do in HK
David: mostly toured the city and some scenic spots
doing much of the same in ny?
me: sort of. i've mostly been eating
i'm also living with my girlfriend, which is great so far
David: damn, nice. is she from there or did the both of you move there fort he summer?
me: she just graduated from new college, but yeah, next month she's moving into her own apt though
David: niice, dating someone with a degree already. you are a god sir
me: hahaha, likewise
this bald man is now yelling "miss" at my girlfriend
now talking to himself
now talking to someone else
David: lol is he right next to you?
me: no he's in the corner opposite to mine
what've you been doing
this city is amazing
David: pretty much noting.
i bet it is. everything happens there
me: it really does
what'd you want to do here
David: i don't know. what do you recommend? i'd like to eat at some famous/good places. and i guess any good concert/events that only happen in ny?
me: yeah i haven't been to many famous/good places so we should go to them
yeah there are free concerts in the park and stuff
i saw david byrne for free in prospect park a couple of weeks ago
so we could go to those
there are free movie festivals
i'm sure we'll get to go to some parties and stuff, or at least opium magazine events
David: damn, that already sounds awesome
almost all of the flights from bham to ny require at least one stop it seems, and thet all take more than 6 hours
me: this guy just came over who works at the cafe and gave us free glass dishes
shit that sucks
well hm which airline?
laura took a jetblue flight that was really short
David: ah ok, i was looking at sw
lol free glass dishes?
that is awesome
me: yeah and then he came over and wrote our names in permanent marker on some sort of glossy paper
and wrote "NYC" on it
David: any reason for this or was he just being badass
me: up. then he asked me for 2 dollars
and i didn't know what was going on and for some reason entertained him and it turned out i had 5 dollars and then he gave me only 2 dollars in return
and now i am out three dollars and am depressed
that's even cooler
me: i also think the dishes are from the cafe
i think he stole them
David: hahahahah, wow he must be a really lazy criminal or just crazy
ok how does july 6 or 7 sound?
me: that sounds fine except i might have someone else coming to stay with me for a couple of days on the 7th
i don't care it's up to you with regards to sleeping arrangements
David: oh where i sleep is the last thing i care about. as long as you're ok with two extra poeple staying with you
me: nah i don't care
july 6 and 7 is fine
i hate my life
i really miss that three dollars
David: heh can 3 bucks even get anything
a 2.50 falafel
a cup of coffee
David: great, now i'm hungry
me: haha i am too
but i've lost 3 dollars!
anyway i'm going to go back to my apt i think
David: hmm now i empathize with your conundrum
me: let me know about the plane details once they happen
yeah i empathize too
i hate my life
