I live in New York City now. I started my job yesterday and it went swimmingly.

It is surreal. I watch Mad Men, SNL, Friends, Seinfeld and just picture myself walking in the background. Because those are all real shows right?

I've been to two birthday parties already and took a nice walk along the east river. I've only had to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond twice to get everything I needed. Which, I've heard was impressive.

I also heard that my fire escape doubles as a balcony. And I am privileged to have 300 SF.

I love my little place. I still have a bunch of things I want to buy to make it the most functional space, but it is perfect for now. I have a bed, and that's probably the most important.

It seems like everyday is trash day in NYC. Everyday there are people tossing out furniture. I have been keeping an eye out for some treasures. sike.

First things first: curtains. I'm pretty close to the building next door. Soooo yeah.
