Last week I signed a lease at my first NYC apartment (I’m not counting graduate housing as my first). I’m moving with Jessica and Stephen to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The building is BEAUTIFUL, I can’t believe I’m living somewhere like this. We’re on the 10th floor (there are 12 in the building), our apartment has floor to ceiling windows with Manhattan views, AC, Washer and Dryer, dishwasher, balconies, a 24 hour gym, and the most amazing roof I’ve ever seen. I think we’re moving this week, so once we’re all settled, I’ll take more pics.
It’s hard to believe I’ve almost been here a year, seems like yesterday I moved in. So much has changed in a year, it’s really hard to believe. As I go into my final year in school, I’m excited to start planning for my post-college future. Even though I took a year off, I was saving for Pratt, and it had never been my plan to do go/do anywhere else. I feel like this will be a very important year for me, writing and presenting my thesis, finishing up my last classes, and looking for jobs. I’m still not 100% sure how “in love” i am with NYC, living here is rough, but I’m going to give it another shot once I’m out of school. I feel like NYC will be a new experience once I’m done with Pratt. It’s not that NYC has been a bad experience, I still don’t feel like NY is home, and I still feel like I’m in a transition period. Once I start to lay down some roots here, I believe things will be different.
So I think this song sums how up I’m feeling moving into my new place, time to move on, leave some of my baggage behind (figuratively and literally) and enjoy my next chapter in NYC.
I’m on some new shit
I’m chuckin my deuces up
I’m moving on to something better, better, better
