I’ve lost inspiration lately to write on here as I’ve come down with the flu. Boo. Probably from all the gallivanting around in the snow! Although Willem told me getting sick from the cold is a myth so I have no idea at all why I have the flu.
This post comes to you direct from the 24 hour Laundromat 2 blocks from my house, where I have finally got off my lazy ass to do close to 2 weeks’ worth of laundry. The job hunt continues, but on a positive note I did get an interview! It was for a PR Assistant role and I should hear back about that one next week.
Still unemployed and applying for 10+ jobs a day! While my self esteem gets battered from no one wanting to employ me, I have been exploring, moving and going to famous NY traditions!
We’ve moved into an apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn with 8 people and others coming and going all the time. It’s so nice having our own space and not living out of a suitcase. We couldn’t get our bed until the day after we moved in so we used our room mates airbed. Quite frankly, I wish I slept on the floor. It was one of those airbeds that are massive and is like having a bed base as well. Quickly deflating, things turned deadly. Each time one of us moved the other would end up rolling down to a corner of the bed and getting stuck against the wall, unable to get out. We came to an agreement that once we had found a comfortable position we wouldn’t move because if we did, the other would suffocate. After a torturous first nights sleep in the new apartment we got our new bed! It is divine. Way to comfortable which means I sleep way too much.
Where to begin. I think I have been extremely spoilt with New Zealand bathrooms which I now see are luxurious. Your mother always tells you to make sure you’ve gone to the bathroom before you leave the house. I have always remembered this. But not always lived by it, as it is very easy to find a bathroom when you are out. In New Zealand anyways. On our first day the first public bathroom I went into was at the giant M&M store in Times Square so that wasn’t too bad. From then on they went downhill, very downhill.
On Thursday November 28th we got to experience a holiday, truly unique to America. Thanksgiving. We had planned to spend Thanksgiving with our American friends Mike and Armyy as well as kiwi girl Jackie. By now we were living in a new neighbourhood at a place we had found on Air Bnb. As long as hosts are regularly checking their e-mails you can book into an Air Bnb place on the same day you book it. Which we did as we were cutting it fine. So we stayed in Greenpoint for a week, which was such a cool little place. It was close to Williamsburg and a short commute to Manhattan. There were bars and food places everywhere and was always buzzing with activity. The place we stayed was a massive room and extremely warm which is all two freezing kiwis can ask for!
