It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, but I’ve decided to resurrect my blog. I have spent the last 9 months living in Phoenix where I all but finished school. With 2 science classes and my thesis to go, I decided to move back out to NYC, but this time it is a more permanent move.
I moved in with Deanna, my friend from my internship at The Broadway League last summer. We signed a year-long lease at an apartment just a 5 minute walk from the heart of midtown, Times Square.
Coming back out here, I was excited but at the same time, completely terrified. I flew out of LAX at 7am on May 22nd and arrived at JFK at around 3:30pm. I was overwhelmed about moving to the opposite side of the country. I was able to distract myself from all of this by sleeping on plane and fearing for my life in the cab on the way to my apartment. But, as soon as the cab emerged from the Midtown Tunnel and I began to see the familiar streets of Manhattan, my fears were relieved and I felt at home.
That evening, before unpacking, Deanna and I went to the roof via the fire escape in the bedroom and I saw the most beautiful view of Manhattan that I have ever seen. It’s good to be home.
