My name is Patricia, and I must confess, that I’m quite inexperienced in blog writing, but I will do my best. At least I have a really amazing topic! NEW YORK… It feels like I’ve been reborn in a completely different life. I’ve moved to New York 2 weeks ago from a little village in Utah, which is quite a big deal, regarding that it was my dream, since…forever?!
For the past 2 weeks I was in shock, that’s why I’ve just started writing my first post… I have so much to say, this city is the most amazing thing ever happened to me, or to anyone, who lives here, I believe. Now that I’m used to the idea, that this is my new life, and I absolutely love it, I’m ready to share my experiences as a brand new “New Yorker”.
Culture in the City
As I’ve never been here before, the first thing I had to do was to act as a tourist, just for a few weeks, so I can get to know the City… transportation, and other technical things. I’ve visited the major museums first, such as the MET, Guggenheim and Natural History Museum. It is not hard to choose between them at all, MET is my absolute favorite! It is versatile, modern and classic at the same time, I could spend the whole day there, but there is so much more to see! Besides, I can go there anytime, as I live in Manhattan. I might even say that the MET will be my special place, where I can escape, when I’m tired of everything and everyone. I probably should explain this last sentence; otherwise you could think that I’m a really negative person, which I am not. So, I already have some friends, who live in the city for ages, I mean, they were born here. Amy, who is one of my best friends here, gave me some advice, and this was one of them. I don’t want you to think that Amy is the negative person or something (esp. if she reads my blog), she is really not, she is just someone who says things like “Pat, the first thing you have to decide on, is a place you can go to for some alone time, out of your apartment, when you get frustrated. New York is the best, I won’t argue with you on that, but it can be a lot after Utah!” And she was right. It’s a lot. Utah is basically empty, no population compared to New York, but I love getting to know new people, so at least I have a choice.
This is all for today, as I still have a lot of unpacking to do and things like finding a shop, which has the best price on yoghurt and finding the best route to work. I promise, I won’t disappear, you will hear from me soon, very soon!
