Okay I know I haven’t posted in like FOREVER, but I’m sorry I’ve been extremely busy and I don’t have internet in the new place yet! Once I get internet, I promise I will post at least once a day.
So, like I said I’ve been busy, but lets start from the top. The big move was quite successful. We arrived at our new apt at around 330 or 4 on Saturday evening. All of our friends were there to help us unload, which was awesome! It was done in no time and I appreciate everyone’s help SO much! Our room was filled with boxes and we had a lot of work to do.
My dad and nephew, Cody stayed the night. We unpacked, drank beer and ate really good pizza.
We are yet to be unpacked 100%, but we are pretty damn close. There are only 3 boxes left in the bedroom, filled with ‘junky’ type stuff. Derek and I still had to go back to our old apartment to clean it out. We ran out of time on Friday because packing up the trailer literally took all day. We made it a one day trip and went back to Manchester this past Friday to wrap things up. We literally drove back, cleaned for 3 1/2 hours, then drove back home to NY. It was a long day, but I was glad to get it done and keep the weekend free to finish unpacking and cleaning.
I’ve been interning at my roommate Matt’s work for the past week. I started the first Monday I was here. It’s going well. I have learned a lot! I was basically just shoved out into Manhattan to find my way on my own. I feel very familiar with things now and I am not so scared of the subway anymore. I have to deliver things, pick things up and I’ve been doing some basic office work. I’m really itching to get a paid job though, or at least an internship that has something to do with Art. I would rather be working for free in an area that I want to be working in in the future.
I have someone to run with now and I’m so excited! I’ve already gone on three runs and I love it. Matt didn’t run much before, but he impressed me with his ability to run the 4 miles home from work in one shot. We ran home from work twice and then went for a 5 mile run yesterday. It’s nice that I will be able to keep up with my running here, I was slightly worried about it. I’ve also been eating really well, which surprises me because I figured I would be stressed out and eating anything and everything.
I get 10 bucks everyday for lunch and I’ve been trying new places every day. I work in Rockefellar so there are a lot of places just in the concourse on the bottom floor.
Here are some of my eats:
Roasted Eggplant Sandwich from ‘Wichcraft
Three Cheese Quesadilla and Orange flavored Green Tea from the Beach Street Eatery.
This past Saturday night we all went out the the Beer Garden and it was awesome, okay I may have expected something a little different, but I had a really good time. They definitely had good beer on tap and they served HUGE glasses of beer. The options were a half liter, a liter, or a pitcher. I had a half liter and a liter. I can’t remember what the first beer was that I had, but the second I believe was a local beer called Capt. Lawrence Freshchester (pictured).

Derek and I absolutely LOVE it here and we are already comfortable and feel like we are really living here now.
