|A view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the subway crossing|
the Manhattan Bridge
Rather than sleep in like I should, though, I instead got up at around 9:30 AM to go to Coney Island in Southern Brooklyn. I could always catch up on sleep the next night, right? (Of course not.) The subway ride there was a little over an hour, which, while long, was shorter than we expected (we had unknowingly boarded an express train). The highlight of the subway ride, though, was when 3 street performers boarded our subway car with some music and began to do all these dance moves and acrobatics while we crossed the Manhattan Bridge. I really cannot describe exactly what they were doing; I've never seen it before, but they were doing everything from dancing to flipping their hats and their shoes and catching them without their hands, and spinning upside down around the poles, and literally hanging from the ceiling of the subway car. They definitely entertained me, so I gave them a bit of money as a thank you for making an otherwise routine subway trip much more fun.

After curfew, we played cards again until 1:45 AM; I had to call it quits so that I could work on my blog. Here I am again, up early in the morning writing, but at the same time, I'm perfectly fine with it. Also, the reason for my title was that I was extremely occupied doing fun things in New York today, so that I didn't even take a look at my work. I will tomorrow, though; tomorrow will involve more work.
