Almost two months ago, I packed up my bags and flew to New York, leaving behind my family and best friends for an opportunity in the big city that I couldn’t pass up. As I was heading home from work tonight, I stopped and recognized that I am currently living in one of the greatest cities in the world, and opportunity abounds in a city like this one. Through all of the days I come home exhausted from work or discouraged from a difficult day, I still live in a city where I can do anything I want—and that is a wonderful gift.
I’m here to pursue my passion, and as I work hard, I sometimes forget to actually enjoy the city I’ve loved for so long. Below are some moments that are the beginnings of a long friendship with this fantastic place.
