amidst the solo time, i watch felicity. it's usually on in the background while i put things away, hammer nails into the wall, and write a card or two. it's oddly comforting, and reminds me of college and how different i was when i watched it the first time around. however, the lessons still ring true. the ones about independence and dealing with whatever life throws your way.
i can't help but feel a bit like felicity as she navigates new york, and a new life chapter. there was a quote that rang oh so true about this city that i have to share, especially in light of alone time and our lovely it's-almost-spring-snow-fall this past weekend.
first of all, new york is the best.
thank god i decided to stay here.
at first it was sort of scary,
even walking down the sidewalk,
it was like being one snowflake in a crazy blizzard.
but then it occurred to me...
everyone is a snowflake.
and that is truly the most unique thing about this place. we are all leading our own separate, self-important lives, and yet we are all connected by our independence.
you might be thinking to yourself, is this a blog only about moving to new york? well, i guess right now it is, huh?
ps. have i ever told you if i wasn't blonde, i'd want to be a redhead?
