yesterday i took a bus from atlantic city to rutgers university in new brunswick to visit my ex-girlfriend, which for all intents and purposes should have only taken around 4 hours. but! the woman at the bus station was a dumb cunt and told me to get off at this retirement home to transfer buses. so, i get off at said home to find that the bus does not run there anymore.
i then waited around for an hour and a half with elderly folk, talking about life and living and whatever else. i then took a senior citizens shuttle to a mall to catch the bus there.
all in all, it took about 7 and a half hours to get there. horrible experience.
so, on the way home after a long day, decided to take the train via philadelphia, which means getting on at rutgers, transfering at trenton, and then going from philadelphia to atlantic city. should take about 3 hours, if all goes well. it didnt
the train to trenton was 10 minutes late for some reason. got off there, to find that the train to philadelphia was running late due to a 'medical emergency.' one hour delay. so, when i get to philadelphia, i missed the second to last train and would have to take the very last train to atlantic city. of course, it wouldnt be so simple! the last train home would be delayed an additional hour for maintenance. all in all i was at 30th street station in philly for about two and a half hours. total time on trains, about six hours.
so, yesterday i spent approximately 13 and a half hours. it was horrible. i had a pretty good time at the university though, playing songs for people, smoking hookah, eating for free. and i did write a long poem on the transportation system. a very stressful, but interesting day.
got home around 3.30 am, went into work at 5.30 am. whatsup, been awake 26 hours
