As a teenage mother from Brooklyn it’s difficult to go on trips; thus, no matter how small a trip it matters to me.
An early Thursday morning around 7:00am I woke up feeling my eyes so heavy. There were just not ready to be open. I got up, got myself dressed ,ate my breakfast said bye to my son who is two years old and next thing I know I was ready to leave. I met up with my classmates. We were speaking about what we think it will be like and if we will like it. The whole time we were talking more negative thoughts came to my head of should I go or not. Taking a trip to a place I never heard of got me worried but knowing that it was for a college trip made me get the strength to go and leave my worries behind. Having a opportunity to visit a place located in Connecticut was a good opportunity. specially if it was to Yale University.
Sitting in the bus for 2 hours was a back killer. Having fun in the bus got my mind off of what I was thinking about this trip. Arriving to the place I saw a huge banner that said COLLEGE SUMMIT it made me see that the reason I was here was because of a good reason. Connecticut seemed totally different than what I am used to every day. New Heaven, Connecticut has many beautiful thing it has a very quiet environment and the nature is beautiful. New Heaven Connecticut is a good place were I can take my mind of everything. Smell the fresh air and see the beautiful nature. Usually in Brooklyn, New York my hometown is a place surrounded with plenty of lights shining on you. Loud noises coming from everywhere, cars beeping and air not smelling clean it smells like food coming from everywhere.
New Heaven is a place that has beautiful places to stay in. Well were I stayed it was in Yale University dorms and there were so amazing. When we were passing by we saw plenty of hotel room and they were enormous. They seem as if they were a whole apartment. Seeing the difference between two different states really caught my attention it made me realize that there is other beautiful places other that New York that are really totally different and may also seem amazing. Connecticut is a place that I visited it caught my attention for the fact that it’s a place that I would like but never though I would like it because its totally different of what I like. Every time some one was to ask me if I will ever leave in Connecticut I said “no it is to boring and quiet there” now if they were to ask me I will say “of course it’s a place that you will not want to leave and you will have plenty of time for yourself because it’s a quiet place to be“.
Comparing the difference from my usual lifestyle from New York and Connecticut was totally opposite. In New York you will see me in the mall every day, not in Connecticut. Connecticut you need a car to go to the mall but I didn’t even think of that because I was too busy exploring the amazing buildings and the other amazing places. When I say the amazing buildings I say that because the buildings were old fashion. They were old fashion but in a good looking way .The activities that I did during my vacation made my trip more unforgettable. Having the opportunity to talk to a college counselor and being able to be one step ahead of my senior class and being able to help them now since I been through the steps they will be taking made me realize this trip is one of the trips I would not regret and its one of the trips I will talk about for others can visit if they want to. Leaving other things to realize how important they are and taking any opportunity that comes to you and if its important for your future take it because it’s a one time opportunity.
