On New York

Dress: A Little Wicked | Sunglasses: Free People | Sandals: Madewell

New York City is generally known as the city of dreams, the city that never sleeps, or one of the loneliest cities in the world. I find these so ironic, because they're all so true. New York is the greatest and the worst thing that ever happened to me. I was so ready for it when I left Los Angeles to come here, and so done with California. And, I never thought I would say this, but I actually miss Los Angeles at times. Everything in New York is difficult—not that it's a bad thing, it's just a difficult thing.  You can never get everything you need in one place, and once you do find the things you need they're ridiculously expensive—we're talking ten dollars for a box of Lucky Charms here. TEN DOLLARS! For a box of carbs that have little to no nutritional value whatsoever! And, when it comes to making friends, it's nearly impossible—everyone already has their friends. Everyone has their own group, their own agendas...

Nobody ever said this life was easy, I know. But goddamn, being in my twenties has been quite the road to hoe—hoe like the gardening tool, not the derogatory term for a woman BTW. I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 23!

I am from Europe and my biggest dream is to move to New York. I love this city and I would like to go there and explore the city. But I know that it is too difficul to live in such a big city.

P.S. You look so beautiful! :)

This is something that I feel like alot of people who live in the city never address. When I first moved to the city it was impossible to find friends, I even ended up taking a YMCA art class but everyone was about 65. The city can be a lonely place, but it is also truly wonderful. Courageous post!
