This was on my way to see an incredible show in Brooklyn…I love the sweetness!
In New York City it seems that nothing ever slows down; no breaks; no deep breaths; no true stillness…Since I last wrote to you I’ve been on a quest to find a zone to just let myself be…and enjoy the beauty of the city at the same time. After all, the hustle and bustle is certainly exciting, and I, for one, am loving calling New York home more and more each day. I’ve collected some fun bits of knowledge and neat corners of the city that one may not know about without the luxury of having spent much time here…and much exploration as well. I hope that these pictures help you to find peace and excitement (and maybe a chuckle or two) in the city…So, my fellow bloggers, I hope that you share the info and that I can help all the new New Yorkers who are eager to find their piece of the city to feel the sense of beauty and wonder that I am experiencing in so many ways…Keep scrolling up for new pictures!

I loved catching these two in a moment! I know, I know, I hope they’re okay with having a picture online! If they’re not I can take it down…but I thought it was very cute and I love to catch people in moments of true love and honesty…it always seems to tell a wonderful story. 🙂
I posted this once before…but I really am curious! So please answer as much as you like! 🙂
So…I’ve got a quick question for all of you. My personal story is interesting, but I want to know all about why YOU chose to follow your dreams. Are you in New York following your dream of being on Broadway? Or are you off somewhere else following a dream? I’m curious to read your answers and I’m very excited to know what makes you tick! And why, if you’ve been to the Big Apple, did you go there? Did you go there to find love? Or a job you’ve followed?
Sorry I’ve been off for a while. You see, life is so insane at the moment. I got a new job (which I’m studying for madly), and still trying to settle into life in nyc. I’ve gone on two auditions (only…and that’s sad) since I’ve moved here. They were both very interesting projects, though! Word of advice: apply for auditions 24/7…you won’t get many of them…but at least you’re getting your name out there and laying the groundwork for future auditions with those companies. Work on it. It will help. 🙂 Anywho, back from my tangent…I discovered the Hi-Line, Chelsea Market, Washington Square Park, and the West Village today and it was such a blast! I got to see a part of New York that I had not been to and it was wonderful! 🙂 I highly recommend taking a walk on the Hi-Line (an old railroad track located a few stories off the ground that has been made into a walking park) as the flowers are coming into bloom now. There’s lots of photography options out there as the colors are so beautiful right now and I couldn’t help but want to take pictures of all the beauty!
Note to self: when on the B Line heading uptown to Washington Heights from Harlem…make sure to get off at the 125th, 145th, or generally a stop where you can transfer to the A train. If you don’t (because you weren’t paying enough attention when you KNEW you had to get off at the 125th stop but you were listening to music)..you will miss the entire transfer to the right train, end up in the Bronx very far from where you need to be, and inevitably miss your dance class at BDC because you ran out of time to get your dance clothes from home…yes…that was the lesson learned in New York today. I bet tomorrow train riding will be easier! I also learned that it is possible to get a phenomenal haircut and eyebrow job (which didn’t hurt because they used a razor instead of wax…I’d never heard of that) for fifty dollars or less and the service is amazing. I couldn’t be happier with the product I received while getting to practice my Spanish. I will certainly be returning to “Honey” Salon in Harlem because they are so kind!
Well, Bellas, if I have any other great things to talk about today, I will! But for now…wish me luck on my two job interviews tomorrow!
Ciao y Salud,
