I moved to Atlanta when I was 10 and headed back North 2 years later. ...I may have been young with little to no experience as a New Yorker, but I knew at an early age that there was definitely no place like home.
Born and raised here, I've loved this place way before I truly understood it's endless possibilities. Leaving again is unfathomable. It makes sense to close up shop for a vacation but writing a farewell letter to Lady Liberty I just can't do.
My ultimate goal is to have an apartment in Manhattan [preferably Soho, Tribeca, MePa, or the Upper East]. & I expect it to come to fruition by either next year or when I turn 25 [I'm 23]. I don't need a home anywhere else but if my cards allow it - I may play that hand. ...or maybe not. I like the feeling of being a tourist - that's what traveling's all about.

lol, ... I know!
