Well, it’s official! I have been living my dream in New York City for one glorious and crazy year. As I was getting ready for bed last night, I thought about boarding the train from Boston (I had gone there from Denver for a quick wedding before the move) and I had no idea what was before me. I expected to have at least one breakdown, but it never happened! New York City instantly became home.
In true anniversary style, I wanted to round up what has gone down in the last year. I have:
-Started graduate school.
-Ran two half marathons and a handful of other races. With Central Park as my running path, I am a lucky girl.
-Written about what’s inside people’s refrigerators and learned how to do a perfect squat from Heidi Klum’s personal trainer.
-Met incredible girlfriends who pop open a can of Diet Coke with me and walk through Central Park whenever I need a break from graduate school madness.
-Eaten too many servings of Magnolia Bakery’s banana pudding to count. And that sounds like just enough.
-Gone from a long-distance relationship to having the man only two subway stops away. I never want to take that for granted.
Here’s to another year, New York! How about we get me a master’s degree and a full-time job next?
