I just moved a month ago from Philadelphia to Brooklyn. I have always seen myself in New York at some point in my life, I just never saw how I was going to get there. After a rather emotionally tumultuous year involving a lot of tough choices and hard work to get myself in a better place mentally, I made the decision to move with a very good friend of mine to NY. It all happened very fast and, despite my fears of homesickness and loneliness, I am doing really well here.
I haven't felt this creative or productive since I was in college, which was almost 2 years ago.
