I, like you, probably get asked a lot of questions throughout the day. None bother me really, ask me anything. One question that really pisses me off and a question I don’t quite understand is: Why?
Bed Bath & Beyond is my go to store for pretty much everything. It’s such a great store that I have this fear it’s only a matter of time before Amazon buys them too.
Regardless of what you’ve been told. People are not a mirror of ourselves. I never could grasp this thinking and until I let go of it and realized for myself. Then was I free from this belief.
You know when people say jokingly, “We’re friends because we hate the same people.” Well, it’s funny because it’s true. And actually, it’s a good thing.
It’s no secret I live in New York City. I do and I don’t. Everyone thinks if you live in New York City that you actually live in the city in some glass high rise with a doorman. No, I don’t. I live in some box of an apartment in Astoria, Queens. It may not be Manhattan but you know what it has that Manhattan doesn’t? Character.
When I first moved to New York it was a lot to take in. Not the big city itself, the chaos, the tons of people, the shenanigans, the late nights of tomfoolery and the many characters I have met on the streets. No. That stuff I actually really dig and that’s the reason I wanted to be in New York so badly. I love real people and their stories. I think most people that love to write, have a love for life and are just down to earth genuine people do. These people I actually get and seek out.
That relationship. That friend. That person. That thing you were in that went so wrong but you’ll be damned if you can let it go.
