I have exciting news! I am relieved to announce that after (finally) completing my school year here in New York that I will be heading over to London in August where I will stay until 2015.
Although New York is my home and I can’t imagine leaving it for good, I’ve always wanted to at least try living in London. Making the decision of where to attend college was tough- I was choosing between the Fashion Institute of Technology and London College of Fashion but really I was choosing between NYC and London. As you know in the end I decided to stay here.
I can’t actually compare my life now to what it would have been like if I were in London at this very moment, but I can say that I am content with my decision. If I hadn’t come to the city I would never have met some of the people I am privileged to call good friends. I never would have been able to meet and work for the most wonderful boss on so many exciting projects.
Craving change is not only natural but practically inevitable for humans whether they are living in squalor or like 17th century kings. Now that I have been settled here on my own for two years I find myself in need of some change of my own. I hate the idea of becoming complacent and I need to shake up my daily routine- even if that means moving across the Atlantic to a city where I know a total of three people. Thankfully that anonymity excites rather than unnerves me… Although I am a bit frightened about how I will do without access to Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers every night.
