I moved from Chicago to New York City on September 1, 2015. Some of my friends thought this was a dumb idea. They said my new life in New York wouldn’t be much better than it was in Chicago, and that in many ways it’d be harder. I think I made the right choice, but I made this blog so that whoever reads it can come to his or her own conclusions. Every morning, I write a brief update about what I did the day before. The idea is to cover my social life, my love life, my financial health, and my attempts to become a more serious writer. I’ll try to keep a candid account, even if it makes me feel super embarrassed, which it definitely will. I invite you to judge my life.
