My morning commute started by walking to the Halsey Street Subway Station (on the corner of Broadway and Halsey Street — Notice the Dunkin’ Donuts and Popeyes located near the station). I took the Queens-bound J train to Broadway Junction, where I transferred to the Manhattan-bound C train, and took it all the way to the Jay Street-MetroTech Station. After exiting the station I walked up Jay Street, passed by One MetroTech Center and NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and arrived at City Tech — just in time for this class.
This morning I felt so happy and left my house early. The first image that I had is of a men with a colorful (yellow) t-shirt. Then I took a left at 135 St there were some African Americans were smoking pot , so I decided to cross the street and walked straight until Lenox. In Macdonald, there was a truck with nice music selling fruits, that made me even happier. Finally, I turned right until I got to the subway station in 135 St.
I arrived on time to school but I made a mistake and I went to room 608, it was when I realized that nobody was there, and I felt so upset so my happiness was broken.
