Well, I must say, today Jessica truly earned her wings, because she acted like an angel throughout the plane ride to New York City. She waited quietly and patiently the entire time with only a small meow every now and then. In fact, it turns out she was simply fascinated by the pilots. They took her up into the cockpit, showed her around, and gave her an American Airlines pin. The only problem's now she won't shut up about aviation school.

Although it will be sad to leave my family when I return to New York City on Monday, I won't be traveling alone. My beloved cat, my "Forever Kitty," Jessica Katz (for some reason, as I typed this, I wanted to give her a middle name, specifically "Renee" which is actually the name of one of my NYC roommates, and therefor probably a bad idea), will accompany me on the trek.

Since we haven't traveled through, or even to, New York together yet, I cannot provide an authentic pictorial representation of our experiences. However, thanks to one of my favorite features on PhotoBooth, I can simulate how I anticipate city life together might be.

Naturally, Jessica, being the independent kitty that she is, will want to take some time to explore the city on her own. She will be sure to check out the most popular sites and enjoy the full NYC experience.

If you're around the city, you might find her using the subway and other MTA services to get from place to place.

She will have a stranger photograph her standing by the "LOVE" sculpture.

I anticipate Jessica will go ice skating at Rockefeller Center.

And check out the Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park.

While I respect her independence, I will insist on chaperoning her every now and then. She may resist at first but we are going to have a killer time in New York together.

It simultaneously sucks and is awesome when a magazine I want to cut up has two really great images on both sides in the same area. WHAT DO I DO?

I went to an antique store/junk shop today and bought some old photographs. These are two of them. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them yet.

These are scanned pieces of shattered safety glass I picked up by the bus stop at the Botanical Garden in the Bronx where I'm currently working. During lunch, I glued them together, painted them, and attached a little loop so that I can wear them as a necklace. They're pretty dope if you ask me.

Today was a good day.

This little dude is pretty fucking sinister. He reminds me of my current property manager (who, unlike him, is female, but also the devil's spawn). My days of living in this deceptively evil Bushwick apartment are coming to an end. While I will miss the bedroom windows, neighborhood, 99 Cent Stores, and the stoop kids next door, I won't miss not having heat/hot water, nor will I miss the anger/fear/anxiety I feel in relation to Arlene, the most insane, demonic, and awful property manager I have ever personally encountered. Maybe I should call this guy "Arlene," but I think that'd be doing him a disservice. He couldn't be nearly as malevolent as the original Arlene.

The local 99 Cent Stores deliver again. I made my little friends out of a package of colored modeling clay bought there. Sure, the stick of pale yellow was completely hardened by the time I opened the package, and therefor useless, but the other colors (of which there were so many!) were mostly good to go. I'm not sure what I should do with these little stinkers, but I guess at the very least now I can say I made a few friends in New York City.
