Nearly a week in
I had been meaning to post earlier in the week, but never really had a good opportunity. Maybe I’ll do a weekly Sunday post or something, who knows.
I’m adjusting well to life in NYC. The pace is certainly something I’m not used to. I quickly realized my first time in the subway that my leisurely stroll wasn’t going to be a good pace. But I’ve gotten used to it and now I find myself regularly passing people on the sidewalks and in the stations.
I stayed pretty busy all week. Between work and wandering, I was constantly worn out.
The first few days at the Journal were great. It’s been really interesting to kind of observe the entire observation the first couple days. I also stayed plenty busy producing various content for the website.
The East Village is awesome. I got my first glimpse of nightlife over the weekend and it’s really cool. The people are fascinating. It’s pretty diverse within the neighborhood, however the majority of the folks are college students and 20-somethings.
I can’t believe I have nine more weeks here. I think it still feels like I’m kind of here on vacation and that feeling probably won’t go away since my Dad is visiting this week so I’ll be back out sightseeing in the evenings.
I’ve done vendor food and had pizza for dinner tonight. Still no cab ride, yet. I’ll be sure to update when that happens.
I’ll try to update with more pictures as well. I can easily upload photos from my phone using the Tumblr app.
