So . . . I meant to start this blog when I first moved to NYC, of course that didn't happen. It sure was a roller coaster but I'm finally settled in and in my 2nd week of graduate school! What better time to FINALLY begin my NYC-Grad School blog ^_^?
I suppose I need to get everyone up to speed with who I am and what has happened in the past month.
That's me . . .
I was very excited to be moving. Needless to say I wasn't AS excited 10+ hours into the trip . . . yes ladies
and gentlemen I spent 26 hours on a train going from Florida to NYC. In my defense they let you take much more luggage on a train, which worked best for my situation. When I go home to visit though I WILL be FLYING!
Sooo . . . I'm a small town girl from a boring little city in Florida (Melbourne, or Mel-BORING as it's affectionately called by anyone who has spent more than a week there). Despite that little tid-bit of information I miss it dearly and I battled homesickness something fierce my first few weeks here (I still do here and there). I moved here Aug. 14th, so it's almost been a month in my new city!
New York City to be exact . . .
What do I mean by that?! Don't let anyone lie to you . . . the North and South are practically different planets in my experience! I was definitely a Florida fish out of water in the city for a while! For instance . . . No one told me I need to look both ways for cars AND BICYCLES! No one rides bicycles in Florida . . and if they do they ride on a bike path/trail . . . not the street . . . at least not in the numbers I've seen here! Plus, even if there are bikers in Florida there certainly aren't pedestrians for them to RUN INTO (everyone drives!)
Other thing's I've had to learn? How about "How to dry clothes indoors!". Yeah, that's a good one! Behold . . .
Want to see something cool? Of course you do!
Oh and just for kicks, here's another angle during the daytime . . . (Disclaimer: all photos in this blog were taken by me.)
