I’m officially a New Yorker! I moved to the city and have survived the first week. The energy here is unlike anything else and I’m loving it so far.
Week 1 went well. There was a lot of settling in and figuring things out: how to take the subway, where to buy groceries, and finding a gym and yoga studio. I joined Modo Yoga and feel completely at home.
There’s an enormous sense of accomplishment that comes with doing something that makes you nervous and succeeding. I took the train to NYC all by myself and was able to check in to my building and make it to work on time the next day. #adulting
I had dinner with my cousin on Wednesday night at Jack’s Wife Freda. My salmon over kale was quite tasty and the cheese plate appetizer was some gooey goodness. It was wonderful to see her and spend time together.
Work is fascinating thus far and I like my coworkers a lot. They’re awesome people! We went up to one of their rooftops on Thursday and had this beautiful view of Midtown.
On Saturday, my roommate Jess and I checked out Smorgasburg in Brooklyn. There were over 100 food vendors to choose from with everything you could imagine from vegan barbecue to Po’ boys. I’ll probably go back at least one more time this summer. Eating by the East River and meandering around Williamsburg after lunch was the perfect way to kick off the weekend.
We split the freshest pizza I’ve ever had. It was baked right in front of us!

Can’t wait to see what Week 2 brings!
