Lights that keep the skyline colorful, the noise of taxis honking and the screech of them running red lights, the chatter and batter of commuters rushing to work and the laughter of tourist watching street performers do there thing… NEW YORK CITY.
With the “hustle and bustle” that comes with living, working, partying and going to school in the busy city of New York who has time to sleep? In fact NYC is known as the “city that never sleeps, ” but I have a few photos that cause me to disagree….
My Daily Schedule

11-5:00pm – I’m at my internship
5:15 pm- On the crosstown bus to school for class at 6
6-9:00 pm- Im in class
9:07 pm- On train to go home to cook for the next day
11:45pm-12 am- Finally calling it a night to only repeat again tomorrow
I began to calculate just how much sleep I was missing out on and then I looked around one day on the train and realized I wasn’t the only one!
Truth is we do sleep but never for long, just quick cat naps to keep us energized for our next endeavor, whether it be going home to feed the kids, going to our second job or running to our college night classes. We as New Yorkers don’t waste a moment of our day, we map it out strategically to fit our busy schedules!
