I have also decided to start allowing comments. If this gets out of control, I’ll stop it, but honestly, I don’t even think anyone reads this crazy thing.
Tonight I am going to the movie in Bryant park! I am looking forward to the new experience. I feel so silly and naive when I say this, but I love how much there is to do here in NY! I was scared to move here because I thought I was making the wrong choice. I thought I wouldn’t be able to make ends meet and that I would be overwhelmed. So many people, including someone I was dating here in NY, said that I probably shouldn’t move because of financial reasons. I did it anyway, and put my faith in the world.
I am definitely still struggling with faith, but I am so glad I moved here. I moved to be around and work on performance most of all, and it has been great! I am performing this weekend again, and I have been able to see so much amazing performance art for FREE! The only thing that is keeping me going right now, as my academic career sputters thru a serious stall, is queer performance.
AND- I have gotten a lot of adjunct work, which has made me able to make ends me. I somehow doubt I would have gotten this work in Philly, so I am very happy about it.
anyway- that’s it for today. More on my misadventures of moving to Brooklyn soon!
