Since I am living in New York on a budget as a student, I was a little hesitant to pay $17 for a Ferry ride to see the Statue of Liberty but it was worth it. Most of the museums and tourist attractions in New York are free for students. I would definitely come back here in the summer on a warmer day of course where I won’t have to wear a winter coat!
This past week I visited New York City for the first time. After being so exposed to NYC through books, movies and television, I thought that I knew what to expect from the city. But, now I know that I definitely needed to experience it first hand. There is just something about wading through the sea of people dressed in black (I thought that was an exaggerated stereotype, but really there was so much black) or entering the underground world of the NYC subway system that made the legendary city finally feel real. Although it wasn’t quite as intimidating as I expected, I have no doubt that I will always feel green (i.e., inexperienced and unsophisticated) while in the city limits… no matter how many trips I make to NYC in the future.

because there are so many things to do in NYC i’ll have to break them into categories. first would be tourist destinations. these are iconic places that are quintessentially new york.

On World of Warcraft within my first year on the game I created a guild that was very successful and lasted for several years. Many loyal members, and since that time many changes have been done to the guild system in World of Warcraft. Out of pure curiosity I wanted to see what it would take to make a Legion, the same thing as a guild. On WoW you must get signatures for several people used to be ten, think it has been lowered to five now. Now on Aion to make a Legion all you do is go to the Legions Board pay so much money and then, Bam! you have a Legion. Now WoW has adopted a guild leveling system and it seems Aion follows this same standard. I do not yet know the full details but I will elaborate more later.
