Tom’s Restaurant for brunch and Franklin Park for drinks. done & done.
based on my brief weekend in the city i’ve concluded some things about the people there and some pros/cons if i decided really to move. let’s recap:
having the entire afternoon to rethink a life here in nyc, i’ve come up with the following pros & cons
+ no major commuting!
+ lighter work schedule
+ easier to get around
+ no car and thus no car payments
+ bigger opportunities for my career
+ closer to all my pro contacts
+ better food
+ more fun to have
+ being able to date more freely
+ easier for me to attend more shows/events i’ve been meaning to
+ chance to live on my own for real
+ i’d be fulfilling a dream
- more bills hence more expensive living
- no car meaning i can’t control getting around OUTSIDE of the city
- being away from my hometown friends & family
- no one would visit me
- living by myself would suck
- buying food more often bc i can’t cook
- dealing with public transportation
- no luxury of having parents take care of me for everything
- not as easy to escape the hustle and bustle (depends maybe?)
- feeling like i’ll never fit in
- taking a giant risk & failing completely
some days i walk away from nyc feeling exhilirant and on top of the world. other days i feel like i’ll never be able to make that leap. i’m scared and torn.
woke up at 230pm. sposed to be on a train at 5pm to nyc for a rooftop bbq dance party. i cannot bring myself to decide if i want to spend 4th of july commuting to brooklyn for a party with nyc friends and having to crash only to come back tmrw. or stay here and find food and force myself to see fireworks i could care less about with hometown friends and save $. the thought of being on a train for like 3 hrs makes me want to kill myself. decisions, decisions…
really all i want is some dunkin donuts right now.
