Live from UWS

...That's Upper West Side for all you non-New Yorkers (hey, I didn't know until I was here a few weeks ago, either).

I finally arrived in New York yesterday, and it's been pretty much non-stop since then. The flight was super quick and a $20 cab ride later I was at my temp apartment. It's okay, but I wish I was in Manhattan...or at least part of Brooklyn that was easier to get to the City. I'll figure something out though.

I start working tomorrow, and thank God for that. I need something to occupy my time with that isn't called shopping.

Other than that though, I guess the only thing that's missing is my friends. It'd be nice to see a familiar face every once in a while. Luckily for me, Kelly is coming out next week, so that's something to look forward to! I'll probably get together with Micah at some point soon too, but apparently they are busy with the playoffs or something...ha.

I must say that I thought I would feel more excited to be here. But so far, it seems pretty normal. Like I've been here forever (except for the whole having no friends part). But I guess that just means that this is where I belong. Can I get some reassurance on that? ...Anyone?

I guess I'll just end this with shouting out to my Minneapolis "family": I miss you guys like crazy, I wish you were here with me!


  1. ERIN!!!!! I felt the same way when I moved to minnesota...and I can def. say that it was the best thing i've ever done. The first day I was here it felt as though I'd lived here my entire life. So take it from me...if you feel its where you are supposed to be, then it IS where you are supposed to be.

  2. first couple months suck... that's how moves always go. after that, friendships will start to form, and in a year or so, the move will seem like the best thing that's ever happened to you. at least that's how it happened to me. wish you the best!
