I’m trying to think of something more groundbreaking to write than “New York is amazing” — but truly that’s how I can best summarize my experience since officially moving here three weeks ago.
Things were so bumpy at first. After the whirlwind high of New York Fashion Week and then having a terrible flu that seemed endless, I hesitantly settled into my new city. Honestly, I was terrified. I couldn’t sleep. Questions flew through my mind constantly. Where would I work? What would I do? Where would I shop for groceries, how would I make my new apartment a home, who would I be friends with, and how would I find time for it all?
It was exhausting.
But somehow, even when you don’t know what to ask for, the world hands you everything you need. I now have a lovely apartment, incredible roommates who I’m so happy to call friends, a running route through Central Park, an organic grocery store and cheap laudromat just steps away from home, and I fall asleep every night to melodies that waft up from the piano bar downstairs.
And, this week I start a brand new job in midtown.
So… New York is amazing. And that’s that.
