Rachel made it look so easy on Friends.   I was supposed to move to NYC, work at a cute little coffee-shop and find a group of adorable buddies/roommates, having grand adventures and falling in and out of love along the way.

Reality  – my job at the coffee-shop barely covers my share of the electric bill at the roach-infested apartment where I live with six, yes six, disgusting flatmates.  I have THREE jobs, haven’t made a single friend, and got mugged my first week here.

But I’m not giving up.  You know what they say – if I can make it here…

  1. Ah, there was a time when I thought I’d move to NYC and become the next Carrie Bradshaw. It feels like I know your narrator…

    Happy New Year 🙂

  2. I say she’ll make it. All that hard work has to amount to something! (Yeah, TV life is sooooo much easier!)
