This city is too ridiculously huge. It just is. Every time I leave my friend’s place in Brooklyn it’s just another opportunity to get lost either on public transit or by foot. I feel like Hansel and frickin’ Gretel — like I need to toss bread crumbs behind me where ever I go. Despite the constant getting lost, I got to meet up with my cohort, author Erica Kennedy, and talk about how publicity for her new book Feminista is going Tuesday. I’m actually in the midst of reading the book to do a review so it was great to meet up with her. We met at Havana Central, a place I passed up twice on the way of getting lost around Union Square. I was, sadly, an hour late. (Mostly because I went the WRONG WAY on the subway for 30 minutes beforehand.)
I feel like I’ve been living out of my suitcase for two months since I made this same trip in August and will be back again mid-October for Howard University’s School of Communications’ Job Fair. More and more it feels like I need to start contemplating that move!
