Yes I fail at posting recently. I spent a week in NYC with my parents and a few friends, and it is official: I must live in NYC at some point in my life. The energy, the people, the lifestyle is so much different (better?) in comparison to Chicago. One highlight was running into Joanna Goddard from A Cup of Jo, one of my favorite bloggers. Her life is amazing. I started following her four years ago, so it was exciting and intimidating when I ran into her and her little son in Greenwich Village. I'm pretty sure nothing I said made sense when I approached her, but she was so kind and easy to talk to!
I love these words of advice she shared on Refinery 29:
"When I was in my early 20s, I felt unmoored. After college, I moved to New York City by myself. My apartment had mice, I was very single, and I was so broke that I would skip getting tomatoes on my bagel because they cost fifty cents extra. I was trying to have my Mary Tyler Moore moment, but wasn’t sure how. Was this it?
