Slept in a bike shop in Harlem Saturday night with Mike and his friends, straight slummin. It was actually really awesome. I also went to my first bar. Guess I’m basically 21 now. And that only has to last until the end of June when I go to Europe.
We didn’t really leave Harlem, but I did see some cool things there. We went to the Great Cathedral, which is the fourth largest church in the world. There was a chorus practicing the whole time we walked around this massive, Gothic cathedral. Right outside the church was “Peace Fountain”, which was an enormous sculpture of a crab holding Satan’s head all cut off, surrounded by Children’s sculptures.
After just getting back from NYC (hence why I haven’t been posting live, just from my queue), I’m glad to be back in Boston. It was so hot and humid there, which meant I could wear the clothes I’m most comfortable in: cotton and comfortable, but still showing some skin.
And since it was Memorial Day weekend, the city was packed with tourists. Maybe it drove all of the actual residents away? Because I didn’t see any awesome New York fashion like I hoped to see. I didn’t see anyone that blew me out of the water. I saw a shit ton of hipsters, but what else is new. I didn’t like that stuff I wore seemed to stick out more than other people, especially because I didn’t wear anything ridiculous.
Maybe it’s just that I like my style, and I didn’t see others wearing things close to it. I never thought I’d ever be interested in fashion, but shit happens. I like badass things.
