“Big Apple Dreamin”

December 16, 2010

I’m just a small town girl (not the one made famous by Journey but one nonetheless) and have always lived in a town of 3,500 or less. My dreams have been big since I can remember-vet, doctor, writer, actress/designer, eccentric theatre teacher. My family members have been calling me “different” for years. So once I graduated it was no surprise to them when I mentioned moving someplace where the hustle and bustle of the city didn’t include a trip to Wal-Mart.

For the last 6 months I have toyed with the idea of moving to either New York or Boston to start graduate school. In the end New York won out, mainly due to the fact that NYU accepts students on a rolling basis (it didn’t hurt that the program and city gives me chills when I think about them).

Since December 4th, when I stood out in the cold crying and calling all of my friends to tell them I got in, I’ve been blowing up craigslist and several other sites looking for a place to live. I have this awesome daydream of living in a brownstone or walk up apartment and having an interesting roommate, all the while I catch the eye of the hot guy who lives across the hall from me. Since I’ve yet to actually move that daydream will stay vivid until I find out that my roommate isn’t that interesting and the hot guy across the hall is a gay musical theatre junkie.

This blog is to document my journey before and after I make 980 mile move from Smalltown, GA to one of the busiest cities in the world.

Until then I leave you with a quote that I think full encompasses my reasoning behind moving to NYC.

“You go to New York to find the ambiance that will evoke your best. You do not necessarily know precisely what that might be, but you go to New York to discover it.”

-Dr. James Hillman
