Movin' On Up

I finally made it to NYC! All in one piece. I can’t lie, I started to panic near the end of my move from LA. I started to second guess my motives, the economy, my ability to stay balleriffic. I have those moments. Just like quitting my stable awesome job in the middle of a recession, I started to doubt moving to NYC in the dead of winter and an even worse economy. Truthfully, I may have just been afraid of the weather. I am allergic to snow, and the thought of arriving to NYC in snow scared me. I am so Californian.

I changed my lil blog layout. Now it reflects my current location. I’ll miss my lil LA layout, but this one will do for now.

Thus far, New York has been a series of icy sidewalks I try not to slip on, and lots of servicemen that need to be tipped. Moving in my new bed resulted in tipping the doorman, the extra doorman, and the delivery man. I mean who wasn’t gettin tipped today? Sheesh. My gallon of water from the grocery store (I don’t think there are any bodegas in my neighborhood) cost $2.00. That’s insane. This isn’t Beverly Hills, it’s Manhattan, they can bring it down a notch, no? I will stop complaining, though. This is what I wanted. I will enjoy and relish in it all. I promise to be thankful for having a goal/dream come true :).

Enough rambling. Hello, New York!

  1. You obviously don’t know about Manhattan…lol. Any place that charges $400K for all of 400 sq. feet will most definitely charge $2 for some water.
    Was it Fat Joe who said “Got a 100 ways to make a grip in New York?” You’ll be fine.

  2. Welcome to NYC. Yes, it’s a bit on the expensive side but as you learn your way around you will find out where better deals are at. As far as water tap is better than bottled (purer and safer) believe me. What you can find in bottled water is not pleasant at all. Anyway hope you enjoy it here.

  3. Welcome to winter. Like everything else you do, this move will prove to be a resounding success. By April you’ll be in the weather groove. Can’t wait to read about your take on NYC Spring. 🙂 All the best!

  4. agh. congratulations on your move! i moved to nyc in the dead of winter of 2004, and found myself struggling to carry my huge suitcases up subway stairs. stay warm. there are loads of places to find great hot chocolate, so sip up and enjoy! best wishes.

  5. I lay puzzled as I track back to earlier times/
    Nothing’s equivalent to the New York state of mind/
    Have fun, and watch out for rogue MetroCard machines…

  6. So I don’t know you, but you def. jsut inspired me. I am currently living in Columbus, Ohio, born and raised. I have wanted to move for about 7 years now. I didn’t even leave home for school The Ohio State Unviversity kept me here. But I want to move to NY and afraid I will suffer and struggle too much. That’s a big move from Ohio. I have considered L.A since I have friends in Cali, but I am so torn. I am a makeup artist but also into publishing. Really anything in the entertainment bizz will do me good. But you made me feel a little better about moving. I just have to find a place to live and a job!!
