It was hard leaving New York. Leaving the town of Forest Hills, that is my home. Leaving my friends, that I love so much!

Broadway show and other fantastic experiences
I’ve been so busy, way too busy to write anything. Even my dissertation is suffering from it. But life is so beautiful, and how can I possible say no, when being asked to go out and enjoy life! Since Irene, I’ve been running around, seeing things, experiencing things, hung out with friends. I’ve been spending… Continue reading Broadway show and other fantastic experiences
I haven’t been able to write as much as I want to. There’s been so much going on and though my intentions are to always update and please my readers, life gets in the way!

I haven’t been a very good blogger lately. I’ve been so distracted with my day-to-day life and even though I have the best intentions of keeping everybody up to date, somehow the month of July just went by like that. So much have happened. Emotionally it’s been a roller-coaster ride. But where I’m at now,… Continue reading Confused.
My money no good here
– The rental nightmare! When I was 18, I moved out of my mother’s house into a room with shared kitchen and bathroom. I paid about $435/month. I lived there for 9 months.

When I finally did, my heart sank when reading the first word: ‘Congratulations…’ Really didn’t read… Continue reading Status on NY dream vol. 4
Status on NY dream vol. 3
Still haven’t heard from CUNY but I guess I have to remain patient for another few weeks.
My apartment is almost empty. I’ve sold most of my furnitures. My favorite red couch, my large black room divider. I threw out my coffee tables. I gave away kitchen supplies to my grandfather.

It’s been 4 years
September 26, 2006. It was an early morning, didn’t sleep all night. My bags were almost packed and all I had to do was get as much coffee down without puking – I was a nervous wreck. I didn’t blame anybody but myself. I thought I could handle this but when the day finally arrived… Continue reading It’s been 4 years
I always said I would
Someone wrote me an email yesterday that got me thinking. “So many people talk about doing something but never do. Takes desire,determination and help from others to make it a reality.“ So, how long have I been talking about and making a fool out of myself , wanting to live my dream in New York?… Continue reading I always said I would
