“A bad day in New York City is still better than a good day anywhere else.”
Hello readers! Today’s topic is my real home, New York City. I decided to do a blog post about New York on Wednesday. Now King A, without my knowing also did a post about New York. We really are the same mind these days…
Ok, well during Wednesday Night Youth Activity (Mutual) at church, some of the leaders and girls were talking about colleges and future plans and stuff like that. The attention eventually turned to me and the question of “What schools are you applying to, Caitlin?” came up. I was ready for the obvious reaction from them as I said, “I’m not going to college.” They were all of course flabbergasted. Mind you, most of them did not know me very well. Some didn’t even know that I’m a performer. So I continued to explain my plan. Graduate. Move to NY. Auditions. Hopefully get Rockettes. Yada Yada Yada…
The topic of conversation than shifted to New York and their experiences there. Here are some of the following statements I heard, “New York is great to visit but its to smelly to live there.” “I visited their and after a day I wanted to go home.” “The subway is disgusting. I couldn’t stand it.” “Did you hear there are rats in the subway?” “I couldn’t see the sky!” “It’s not green enough there!” It broke my heart to hear those words. That was my home they were dissing!!! I naturally defending my loverly city.
I love everything about New York. I love walking in Central Park. I love looking up at all the skyscrapers. I love shopping in Chinatown and Soho. I love taking a taxi. I love fighting for a seat on the Subway. I love street performers and artists. I love Time Square. I love celebrity sightings. I love pretzels and hot dogs sold from street carts. I love how you can get anything you need at any time of the day. I love being able to walk to a Broadway Theatre. I love all the restaurants there. I love the business. I love Broadway Dance Center. I love the people there. I LOOOOVE New york Pizza. I love all the different cultures that thrive there. I love that people can go to New York to fufill their dreams. I’m moving there next fall for all these reason and many more.
I’ll leave you with images of me in New York. Wiggins can attest that I thrive in New York. As soon as I land in Laguardia, I’m home.
