Today marks the beginning of a new adventure. I must say, I am more apprehensive than I have been in a long time. I guess when I left for France my heart was racing just as fast and my mind was battling negative thoughts just as frequently. But these are things that are now hard to associate with my move to France since I have been through that situation and had such an amazing experience. In my mind, there was no way I was nervous or afraid–a quick look at my journal (or this blog) would prove me wrong of course.
So today I moved into an apartment in Brooklyn and on Monday I begin the process of temping and searching for a job. It’s a lot all at once but I’m so excited for all the new things ahead. And there will be plenty of new things–I know very little about Brooklyn. Manhattan already seems less foreign to me after having toured my French visitors around last weekend, but Brooklyn…
Brooklyn is a very unfamiliar and uncharted land for me. I understand the risks of living in the area and will take them into consideration as I explore (staying safe and aware of my surroundings) but I also have to rely on my tendencies to think little, take chances and fly by the seat of my pants because I believe it is the only true way to wring out every ounce of excitement and discovery.
You will all be along for the ride I hope 🙂
This month is all about NYC, and specifically Brooklyn!!!
