In just a few short hours I will be on my way to the National Convention in New York City!!
It will be my first time in the Big Apple and I am ecstatic!!

I'm traveling with this lovely lady, Josie. She used to live in NYC, so I feel really safe with her navigating the trip. 

Tonight I am staying with a friend near the airport, and then I'm off to the big city early in the morning.

 I am so nervous....I am trying to pack really light (like only a carry-on and a camera bag) since we are staying at the Booklynn New York Loft Hostel.

I've never stayed in a hostel before, so I am nervous about what to expect.

I just keep telling myself, that if I forget something, I can always try to buy a new one when I get there.

Sadly, I'm only taking my Nikon D5000....as much as I really want to take my new high def. video camera (that I have yet to use!), and my Holga, and my Instax Wide...

I have to be realistic about what I will want to carry around every single second of the trip. I won't want to leave all that stuff in a trunk back at the hostel....so I will just take one camera, luckily it does great video if I need it.

I'm also nervous about my phone going dead every day....since I probably won't be able to charge it, I can't be sure that I will have a reliable phone/video camera in it for the trip. 

Okay, now I just need to focus on all the amazing food and sites that I am about to experience. It is going to be amazing!!!

Girlfriend, you can charge your phone every night if you bring your charger! We're going to have so much fun!
