Personal Narrative: My Trip To Harlem

Great Essays
There were some positives, and I can’t help but acknowledge them because they happened and I fell for them. He was crazy about me in the beginning, I would receive text after text that it at one point was nauseating. I didn’t give him the time of day until I actually did. We were supposed to have lunch one Saturday during a weekend that I hid on Central Park South. I spend the day downtown and did things I loved. Then one day I traveled to Harlem for the first time by myself. I was too tired to do the whole restaurant date thing so we just relaxed in his apartment. The first time we kissed was amazing. I showed him a picture of my dogs, and we talked about Marvel/DC comics. I really warmed up to him, and just like that he kissed me. If we weren’t sitting on his bed, my foot would have popped just like in Princess Diaries. …show more content…
After we had sex that first night, I attached myself like a leech. I didn’t mean for any of that to happen. He was supposed to be just another one night stand, little did I know that he would be the focus of attention for the duration of winter. There was absolutely no walk of shame the next morning. He left before me but we conversed, had sex again and showered. Not having class was very beneficial because he allowed me to continue sleeping after he left for work. How is it that he trusted me in his apartment all alone? Maybe it wasn’t trust, maybe he was just oblivious. Anyone who laid eyes on me dancing and bumping down CPW would have thought I won the lottery. And that is how it seemed to me as well. I thought I had finally found someone who had the potential to be something more than a hookup. That was naïve of

    As a kid it was obvious I loved the basketball games to try and win a jersey or go on rollercoasters along with the head banging bumper cars which were one of my favorites. As years went by and I started to get into my teenage years the island of Wildwood started to become a little crazy at least that’s how my mother would put it. My family didn’t enjoy visiting the island how they used to or how I still did. Instead, I would go down with my friends for big weekends things like Memorial Day Weekend, Beach Blast, Fourth of July, and Labor Day weekend. As the island changed we evolved with it we still went to the beach and during beach blast weekend played in the soccer tournaments on the beach.…

    I normally would make up some sort of excuse to make it seem as if I wore the outfit because something came up, but not today instead I said, “No, but did you leave your manners in your bed this morning?” then I walked away. Working in a bar the customers expect you to be one way and that is always happy. Truth is no one is ever always happy. We are human, we all have bad days. I hate that they expect me to be something I am not so this day I showed it.…

    Today was a lucky day for me, because it was a weekday, and not many people were in the park, which made shorter lines. I can recall going on about a dozen rides in that one day, and not regretting going on a single one just because of how short the lines were. Even though I went on several entertaining rides, my dad suggested we go on the It’s A Small World ride just to experience how annoying it was, and he sure was right. As soon as I got into my hotel room, the song was still stuck in my head. Trying to ignore it, already began planning what I rides I would take a chance at the next day, and where I’d go.…

    I’m sure you all can relate when I say that Albany was a sheltered place to live in. You practically knew all your neighbors by name and probably dropped by once in awhile on a casual Friday afternoon for movie night or a friendly game of poker. It was the complete opposite of Oakland, where I grew up in a house that was converted from an appliance repair shop until I was ten. While I love the atmosphere of a small well-off town, I now realize that it is an ideal community to be a part of when you’re either growing up as a child or settling down in your forties. The citizens of Albany are not accurate representations of people you encounter outside the town, and that was what hit me hardest when I started meeting less friendly faces in San Diego.…

    When I got into the car after school, I saw his sweatshirt start to move, which was weird because he was wearing that sweatshirt. All of a sudden I see my dad grow a second head but this head was a puppy head. The dog was in his shirt to stay warm i’m guessing, but it was really weird. We went to the store and he left me alone with this month old puppy that I didn't even know so I started petting her and she was really nice and gave a bunch of kisses. Later that night when we got home we decided a name for this new puppy and that name was…

    I was so excited to go to Duluth that I could not sleep the night before, but once I finally fell asleep, I dreamt of all the things we could do there. The next morning when my mom woke me up I was a little bit upset because we were running late and we had to arrive at the hotel at one thirty but it was already eleven o’clock. We left immediately, and we showed up there an hour later than the expected arrival. As soon as we arrived and got our rooms and everything organized, everyone wanted to do something different. My older brother wanted to go to the pool, Dylan wanted to go to the see the ships, and I wanted to go to Gooseberry Falls.…
