Me: “What day is it?”

Jeff: “Sunday.”

Me: “I know that. What day?”

Jeff: “The …8th.”


One year ago today, I boarded a one-way flight to New York City. No job, no real plan, and no clue what I was getting myself into. I am happy to report a year later ..I have a job, I kind of have a plan, and I’m excited about what year two has in store! I have definitely come to realize why “not everyone makes it in New York,” but that’s what makes it all the more rewarding (and stressful, at times). It’s easily been the best adventure of my life. Not a single regret here.
