Just like death, taxes, and the Jets always losing there is one constant in life for New Yorkers. That, my friends, is the NYC MTA subway system breaking down on a Monday morning!
It never fails. No matter what the weather conditions are, or the time of year, you can almost schedule it like clockwork that on Monday mornings during rush hour you will be greeted by delays.

Plus, since my blog is not going to buy food and booze for me anytime soon the job is priority #1.
It was time to take a deep breath, take the plunge, and disconnect for a bit! Continue reading To blog or not to blog? When life gets in the way we freak out!
It does have a certain way of gnawing on us doesn’t it?
Try not to let it eat you alive.
