You see, being the fashion/photography obsessed person I am, New York has always been the place of my dreams. Since the time that I was knee high to a grasshopper (not really...but you get my drift), I've always known that someday, somehow, I would get to call that city home. Due to certain circumstances *cough* stupid visa *cough*, I've been unable to make it there, thus far. Other than a brief weekend encounter, I've had to get by on watching New York based films, and pinning basically everything NYC related on pintrest. This, of course, only aids in my craving for the city, but I just can't help myself.
I know, you're probably thinking...if you torture yourself everyday with thoughts of New York City, what happened today that made you so jealous? Answer: reading another bloggers post about their fresh move to the city. This isn't just any blogger either, its someone I went to high school with. She was the Golde to my Yente. She, just recieved a job in Queens, after completing her masters in history (i think its a more complicated title then that...but lets go with that!), a feat that is quite incredible. I would even go as far as saying that its inspiring to see someone, from my small town, make it to New York. However, I think you can probably understand why I was feeling a tiny bit jealous. As I got lost in her blog posting (which is fantastically written...by the way), I couldn't help but want so desperately to jump through my screen and be right there...I could practically taste the pizza from one partical photo! Please don't mistaken me, I'm so unbelievably happy for my friend, which is why I was so surprised at my reaction. I guess the 'J' word is just on of those emotions that happen, its not a feeling you can generally control. Maybe, its how you deal with it...and I, for one, think writing a blog post was a very productive way of dealing today. So, until I can paint that town in polka dots, I'll just day dream while watching reruns of Sex and the City. So for now, I'll leave you with a couple of my favourite pictures of myself. (haha! How self involved do I sound?) They were taken during my visit to NYC two years ago...hmmm...I wonder why they are such favourites...ha!
OOOH wait! I almost forgot, I want to provide a link to my friend's blog. I strongly suggest everyone goes and checks it out. Like I said before, it is incredibly well written, and there are cute pictures of NYC and its all around a great blog! Soooo...CLICK HERE!! I promise, it won't disappoint! :)
