NYC…not much has changed

I came across this quote a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to get it out of my head. I think it still speaks the truth, having lived in NYC for 6 months now, in both the cold and hot, NYC is definitely one of a kind!

New York is noisy.
New York is overcrowded.
New York is ugly.
New York is unhealthy.
New York is outrageously expensive.
New York is bitterly cold in the winter.
New York is steamy hot in the summer.
I wouldn’t live outside New York for anything in the world.

The New Yorker 1925

My first weekend after moving here to NYC I went to the Barnes and Noble on 5th and bought Here is New York by E.B. White. This quote from The New Yorker reminds me of this book.

Here is New York by E.B. White

Only a certain type of person can live/survive here. Some flock from all over the world to live here, to be New Yorkers. Me? I moved down here for a job, a good paying job to pay off my insane amount of student loans. How long do I plan on staying? I’m not sure at this point. I can honestly say though that I can see myself living elsewhere…

new year, new blog…

So, yesterday I was trying to clean up my databases…and accidentally deleted my blog!! Also, the files I downloaded to back up my blog turned out to be just the system and design files, not the content. No comments, posts, pics, stories! 8 months…completely gone.

It took me about 5 hours to calm down and decide to put TSATSKE to rest and start this new blog. Considering I have a lot to learn about databases, I have returned to wordpress.com to host this blog for me. (You can still check out TSATSKE as it started out.)

Oh well, here I go…AGAIN!
