People keep asking me why I’m moving to New York, and honestly it’s hard to give the answer that people are looking for. No, I don’t have a job offer, no I’ve never lived there. It’s something I’ve wanted (dreamed about) for a long time and I just decided now is the time. It’s not just New York that I want though, it’s a whole lifestyle change. The people I know there work hard, like really really hard, and I want that. I want to be tired at the end of every day.
I’ve heard a few people say that when they moved there their life was exactly the same as it always was. I do not want that to happen to me. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want out of this move and I think the list above captures my thoughts. Could I do these things from anywhere? Of course, but I would still be dreaming of doing them in New York, so I’m making my list public. Next time you see me ask me if I’m doing one or all of these things, if I say no, you have permission to slap me.
