nyc changes you.
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
i hate it when people claim that their town is the coolest place ever and there is absolutely no where else you could possibly live. truth is, your town is right for YOU, not everyone else, and that's why you live there. sometimes we learn to love the town we are in because a job pulled us there. but for the most part, we are actively choosing to live where we do.
ed and i knew we wanted to live in nyc, and luckily ed's job landed us here. we went into the first few months with apprehension, but we immediately knew the city was for us.
the internet went down the other night after a brief thunderstorm and i found myself looking through old pics. ed and i always talk about how new york has changed us. not necessarily for the better or worse, just change.
besides wearing a lot more black, our style has definitely evolved. to walk around the city and not be influenced by the fashion that's smacking you in the face would be a waste.
the food scene in nyc is overwhelming and mind blowing. we eat things here that i never would have tried anywhere else, nor could i find it anywhere else. when we drive away from the city, the food sucks. sorry, but it's true.
my attitude has definitely changed as well. ed and i used to tell each other "new york up." which meant.... man up and take care of business. the traffic, noise, and hustle has hardened me a bit.
we have lived in nyc for 3 years and look forward to some day raising a kid in this crazy city.
