I've been living in NYC for 10 years now and have loved every minute of it. But when you hear the details you might ask, WHY?? I've had 7 roommates before, have shared rooms with strangers, and now I'm living glamorously by myself... in a 450 sq ft apartment. My workdays begin at 10pm and end around 8pm, which might sound normal to New Yorkers but my hometown friends think I'm crazy. While I know I may never have normal working hours, I eat and breathe the daily grind and will always choose the sweaty subway cars over a quiet hometown.
Everyone has their own living perspective though. What's yours?
