I’m finally in the city that I’ve always dreamed of, working towards my dream job, and pursuing the life that I’ve always dreamed of having. So why such a terrible case of writer’s block and an undeniable spirit of procrastination?
Unfortunately, this is the reason for my absence from blogging. I’ve been living in New York for about a month now and have only applied to a handful of writing jobs and haven’t blogged a single bit (until now of course). Luckily, I have friends who are just as stubborn as me and wouldn’t stop badgering me about blogging again until I actually posted something.
So I left the house today determined to find inspiration and resume blogging.
The weather today was too perfect to spend it all in a building and I was in need of a little nature. Since I currently work right across the street from Central Park, I thought I’d set out to a new one. And since I didn’t want to journey all the way to Brooklyn( coming from Queens), I settled for the still very well-known Bryant Park.
And would you believe it?! A little good weather, sunshine, and eclectic crowd of people really did help get me out of my rut. I definitely need to walk around and just take in the city more often. There’s a reason why the people here inspire such unforgettable characters.
And because I’m a bookworm, I had to head over to the infamous New York Public Library. You can’t help but be inspired when you’re surrounded by so many great works of Literature. Libraries tend to have an ambiance of creativity and purpose to me. It’s almost impossible to not be productive when I’m in one, much less in the same five-mile radius of one.
Consider this a prequel of my ‘Updates’ post that I’m working on. New York is everything that I thought it would be and then some. If you thought I wasn’t posting because of the lack of inspiration, you’ll find yourself terribly mistaken. If anything, this city has not only been inspirational, but deviously distracting as well. For instance, I got an invite to an Urban Outfitters Party tomorrow which I know will be a blast. Sounds great, and it is, but I must inform you that I have to head over right after a 9hr shift. The party doesn’t end till to 10/11pm, it’s an hour commute to get home, I have work 7am the next morning, and I must be up by 5am.
Anyhow, enough of my ramblings for now. The overpowering grumbles from my stomach are starting to distract the fellow library goers and myself. I’ll be sure to fill you guys in on the shenanigans that I’ve gotten into so far in the next post.
PS. I’m posting from an App on my phone, because I still don’t have Internet at home. Not quite sure how this looks on a computer and I apologize if it looks a bit off!
