I’ll be 23 this November. I would have already graduated and been done with school right now but I lost credits when I transferred out here. Which is fine, I don’t really care!
However, I am VERY ready to be done with school after this upcoming year.
Living in NYC is interesting. I spend a lot of my time in Brooklyn and prefer living there. I have a love-hate relationship with this place. It’s been growing on me, definitely. This city is all about extremes. Very, very hot in the summer and pretty fucking cold in the winter. I hate the mosquitoes here. People everywhere. Not enough trees. I miss the forest.
But super great public transportation, lots of great shows, rooftops galore, amazing museums, delicious food, a fantastic place for people watching. There’s always something to do! New York has a lot of history and I’m glad to have lived here (for at least once).
I live by myself. Living here can be very expensive. If you want to move to NY, move to Brooklyn. It’ll be a little less cheaper than living in the ridiculousness of Manhattan. The more people you live with, the lower the rent will be (obviously). Except a lot of landlords are pricing people out which is super shitty.
I’m graduating this upcoming year so I have a lot to think about in terms of what I want to do right after and where I want to go. Do I want to stay here in NY for a bit or move somewhere else? Maybe move back home for a bit? Who knows.
It was my kitty boy. Got it done in ‘08. I drew him one day and knew right away that’s what I wanted as my first tattoo.
A very tasty sandwich shop in Brooklyn.
Nope, still living in NYC. I quit Anthropologie because this other job I got is a lot more awesome and pays more. And everyone who works there is super nice and cool and aren’t intimidating bitchy ladies. Haha.
Nothing too crazy is going on right meow. Taking a summer illustration course for funz, transitiong jobs, dyed my hair super dark, trying to stay cool in this dumb heat, went to the beach a few days ago, starting season 2 of Mad Men, currently drinking a gatorade ‘cause I’m a lil hungover.
Yo, I cut my own hair. Thanks!
