with this annoying ass covid pandemic going on, i realized recently that i really have been through a lot as a new yorker. not only do i have my own personal shit to deal with (family, friends, LIFE), but i have to deal with the times a changin’, technology a changin’, my city constantly a changin’, not being able to afford things, and then there’s the BIG bullshit.
my heart, my nerves, my soul, it aches… i am fucking tired. either i’m training to deal for survival of any type of bullshit, or living here all of these years has shaved off 20 years of my life expectancy. what i do know, is that all of this bullshit and the mildly technological time i grew up in gave me GREAT patience.
the point of this post was bc i was thinking about the last times NYC has had to deal with crazy shit, and i made a list from memory. keep in mind, half of these happened when there were no cellphones, either:
