I’ll just cut to the chase- New York is awesome. As a Manhattan-born, cultural event commuter from Connecticut, I always thought I had a pretty good understanding of what it was like to be in “The City”. Well, I kinda did, but there’s also a feeling of just being here that’s hard to describe.
Moving to Manhattan has always been my end goal- a far off chapter in my life that was easy to point to when people asked what I wanted to do with my life. Well, now I’m here, and I’m doing it, and despite my post-graduate poverty, it feels really good.
My fellow interns in my program are fantastic, my supervisor’s great, and the accounts I’m being exposed to are equally wonderful. My commute to work is all but 5 minutes walking, and there’s a J.Crew, metro stop, Whole Foods and a Colombian restaurant all within a 5 block radius.
It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, I’ve already reported to my Twitter followers (@ccase22) that butter and cereal cost $7 each, and that I live in a 5th floor walk-up with no air conditioning. Time Warner cable has also completely destroyed my long and loving relationship with TiVo. No more DVR’ing for me. But that’s ok because there’s plenty of free stuff to do here. Just this past Monday I went with my friend, Lucie, to HBO’s summer movie series in Bryant Park to see “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest”. Now that’s what I’m talking about!
Sorry I’ve been slacking on the posts. I was hoping to get around to Tumblr on my lunch breaks, or after work, but I’ve been trying to soak it all in, because sooner than I think, I’ll be an all-black wearing, coffee clutching, jaded New Yorker!
I’ll be blogging occasionally this summer for my internship, I’ll shoot you guys the link once those get started!
