Life in the Big Apple
So it has been awhile since I have updated about my life. So bear with me we have some ground to cover.
Beginning of January I moved to NYC to start my post-grad life. It was a bit more of a struggle than I had planned and was getting very beaten down by things not going exact, but I can now happily say that I found an apartment and am all moved in!
After finding my apartment everything just started moving so fast. I moved in had my first night officially in my new place. I went to the grocery store and attempted the subway back from Trader Joes after my first grocery store attempt left things still on my list. (Which by the way I do not recommend going to Trader Joes for the first time ever at 5 PM on the Saturday before the Super Bowl)
Now that I am all unpacked there is nothing stopping me from figuring out a job and getting work with finding theatre things to keep my hands and mind busy. I am applying to fellowships, internships, apprenticeships and other -ships if they will take me. I am looking for anything I can find and submitting my resume and personalized cover letter for each one. I don't know where my first big break will be but I can't wait!
One thing I can admit has been a struggle is being away from everyone I know. I have always viewed myself as very independent and able to just jump into any scary situation and come out happy I did it, but this time has been harder to jump. I know that I will be fine and I will meet people soon enough but as I sit here binge watching Jane the Virgin (from season 3 because I fell behind) I can't help but feel that fear and doubt.
In other good news in a few weeks I will be flying back to Wichita for a few days to bring my cat back with me to our new place!
I am making it a goal of mine to update this blog once a week at least or whenever something big happens in my life.
So stick around because this is only the first chapter of my adventure in NYC.
So until next time...
