Last weekend I spent some time with my best friends in Manhattan, as well as some of their friends. It was the perfect weekend. I had just come from a work training and was all spazzy and stressed, but after shopping and clubbing, I was totally relaxed. Then, we went to this amazing brunch place that served complimentary mimosas (in New York! Complimentary alcohol!) and lots of food. There was also sleepover wackiness and lots of pointing out of places to go to. It was such a great time, and these people were so not stressful. I think MBA programs attract certain personality types, and we all come with “judgment” as a common trait. The difference from being with that personality type 24/7 to hanging out with non-judgmental people was palpable.
The more I’ve been to New York, the happier I am that I get to live in this city. I just have a great opportunity to start somewhere where I can be anything and everything I want. I never felt like New York was trying to crush me, but rather elevate me to what I can be.friends, holiday, New York
