New York Statements

♥ During my time in this city, I have found that New Yorkers always have a lot to say.

 Yes, this guy exists. There was a line of people waiting to talk to him.

 Neither do I, my friend, neither do I.

♥ I have been in New York for two months now. God, where did time go? It seems like it was yesterday that I arrived here, not having a clue what to expect, referring to my map every 5 minutes (“is that downtown or uptown?”), getting lost on the subway and getting high on the energy and excitement of being in the centre of the world.

I am not a true New Yorker yet, but I have definitely grown accustomed to living here. I have a favorite cafe and a favorite Moroccan restaurant in the East Village. I have a favorite bar for Monday nights. I have a favorite cupcake shop in Soho, a favorite arts supply centre, a nail saloon and a bookstore. I don’t have a set routine (the wonderful thing about being an art student) but regarding those places I’ve just mentioned, I’m definitely up for some frequent flyer miles pretty soon.

New York, I have one month left here. Something tells me I’ll miss the hell out of you when that time is up.
