On the whole, I love living in New York City. I can’t get enough of the speed, the people, the food, and the scenery. Here are a couple of snippets I’ve discovered so far…

1. It’s easy to eat like you’re on vacation. I’ve been trekking all over Manhattan this past week and listing the sweets I’ve eaten (La Maison du Chocolat truffles, gelato in Nolita, tiramisu from Agata & Valentina, Emack and Bolio’s Grasshopper Pie Froyo, Abraco Olive Oil Cake, Shack Shake concrete…) is getting quite lengthy. I’m walking it off, right? That’s the vacation mentality…

2. Obviously, it’s an expensive city, BUT manicures are only $9. It’s amazing. (Try Essie Spaghetti Strap!)

3. So far my running preference is Central Park >; Hudson River path >; East River path. However the discrepancy of preference between Hudson & East is much larger than the former two.

4. Craigslist is horrible. Finding somewhere to live is torture. I feel like I could write a book of short stories from my four viewings alone.

Well, I’m off to try out a yoga class! Here’s hoping this week brings stability.
