I had to show apartments today so had to trek around Brooklyn with a client so naturally my cardio was walking 🙂 However lots of switching of trains meant lots of trains I could NOT sit on! Oh, how I wanted to!

It always makes me laugh when I have to tell people I don’t know what I am doing. Like today, why I could not sit on any of the trains! She kept asking me to sit down and forgetting 🙂 It did make it awkward that I could not sit next to her to chat with an hour long ride there and back. People always look at you with that “Why?” face or “I don’t understand, I mean, what?”

Yup, they think I’m crazy.

I am.

I especially liked how in the middle of chatting to the client I had to go up on my tip-toes and I watched her look at me up and down with wide eyes!

Too funny.

I went to see apartments in Queens today. The first I walked to as my cardio as it was about 20 minutes speedwalking from my apartment to this Woodside apartment. But then got an email from another listing I had written to telling me the keys were with the doorman for me to look at it too today. So, I plugged in the address into my google maps on my blackberry and hopped on a bus. I got to where I was supposed to be and it was NOT where I was supposed to be! Stupid effing google maps had taken me to the wrong place, the wrong TOWN!! I was in East Elmhurst when I was supposed to be in Rego Park!!! UGH!! It normally asks more questions if there’s more than one known location or I don’t know I didn’t really check to make sure either I guess….ugh!!!!!! I trust google maps, I do. So, was in the middle of nowhere now trying to get to another friggin’ area. 

I finally figured out the correct place I had to be and found another bus not too far away that could get me there. As I was waiting for the bus a woman came up to me asking me if I was religious and if I had read and do read the bible. Clearly my answer of NO to reading the bible was the wrong answer as she then proceeded to lecture me about how wrong that is and got upset. I kept saying “No, thank you” but couldn’t go anywhere as was at the bus stop waiting for the bus!!!!

And I was frozen as thought initially I would walk to Woodside and back home after only.

Great.

THANK YOU GOOGLE MAPS!!! Oh, how I loved thee today!!!!

It was the first time I crossed over the bridge on the L Train to Williamsburg since I started my 365 Challenge. It wasn’t so bad on the tip-toes. I thought it would be long, but nothing compares to that stupid R Train!! So far that is the worst and longest tip-toe experience. I want to avoid that one! However, haven’t tried them all yet.

Had to show an apartment in Brooklyn to some potential tenants and one of them was Australian. So after he came and left, I had some time before the next appointment and used the Australian as inspiration for my video upload. I became an Aussie fast-talking crazy Real Estate Broker!

I also managed to do my fitness 365 in between appointments too at the apartment, and my dance of the day. I closed myself in the bedroom and pumped out The Beatles to dance to. It was a tribute to my hubby Stuart of course – the biggest Beatles fan ever – I figured I would have to dance at least once to his fav band in this challenge 🙂

I took the bus back from Brooklyn to Queens this time – it was a long ride to not be allowed to sit. And there was traffic. I sooooo wished I could sit down, just for a second. I dream of that day!!


365 ONE: day 51…an array of a day

An array of a day!

I didn’t mean to walk as my cardio today again to the office from NYU after the Chlamydia mock trial I had this morning, but I was on the phone to my dad and suddenly realized that I had walked all the way to the office! Funny I didn’t notice. Odd, actually.

I had a super busy day today. Mock Trial and then work and then had expense work I do every few months for a real estate broker up at Brown Harris Stevens. I hadn’t been there in a while and had to finish the rest of her 2011 expenses so it was looooooooong and only got back home at midnight!!

Once I figured out it was going to be looooooong I realized I had to do my 365 during some breaks in the expenses or once done. It’s quite an eerie office, especially at night when everyone is gone….in this case I have to say “usually” gone as for some strange reason a few brokers were still there! I love having the place to myself and was hoping for this especially since I had to 365, but no no no that would be too easy apparently!

Hence a crazy office video upload! Tried to do something without anyone noticing!!

Sneaky.

The song I also did at BHS after I had finished the expenses. I turned out the office lights and put on a classic favourite song I used to love to club to when I was little. It made me laugh as I never knew the lyrics so used to fake them when I dance. I do that a lot. I sing out loud while clubbing and not sure I have all the lyrics to everything but I appear to HAHA!! 🙂
