Have taken the first step...

Well guys, I have finally succeeded in taking the first step to leave NYC.  I do this with a bit of sadness but excitement at the same time:    Last year, I had applied for permanent residency in Australia, and just yesterday evening, after massive paperwork, health and police checks, I was approved and received the grant!  I am now the equivalent of a US "green card" holder (this is so funny - what me, a green card holder? lol).  Anyway, I still can't believe that my application was…

Leaving NYC but then running back

I have a friend who left NYC to go back down south because as she said, "it's just time to leave and find better things".  So she quit a very good job she had and left to live in Louisiana.  Well, can you believe that it hasn't even been 1/2 a year and I heard that she's back in NYC?  She claims to have missed not only the city life, but her friend whom she shared an apartment with.   She's now looking for a job.

Wow!  You hit the nail right on the head with your words about the dating scene here.  For some reason I thought it might be easier for NYers who were born and raised in NYC.  I agree with you.  No one tries to work anything out because they can just move onto the next person.  I've found it to be superficial too.  I didn't even mean to blog about the dating scene per se. I think it came out as an underlying frustration. I just haven't had good luck dating here and I don't want to do the internet or speed dating... I think there are other important things to consider when leaving a city and I want to blog about them too. The relationship theme was the first to come out.
