In a lot of ways, New York is incredibly comfortable and friendly. Of course, there isn’t an unsurmountable language or cultural barrier, and the city already comes with so many good friends. There is never a lack of delicious food everywhere, and I’m always striving to save room for dessert. I know I’ll be here for awhile, so I’m taking my time getting settled in. I love pursuing new projects and exploring the potential of places/communities/ideas. It’s an exciting time and place to be.
Nina Simone – Feeling good (Nicolas Jaar edit)
Inside a giant dome, I ran into an old Internet friend from nearly a decade ago. And the other day, I was crossing the street in Manhattan and I randomly bumped into a girl I knew back in middle school. How did we even recognize each other? I’ve been unexpectedly encountering people all over the city. New York is really small, isn’t it?
But honestly, I think I spend more money on food than clothes. Zeolite and I went to get some delicious meatballs at the Meatball Shop the other day. Hers were on a bed of mushroom risotto. Nom!
P.S. Who else is in the city? Maybe there should be a little group gathering at a coffeeshop or something!
