Back At It

So, I took a mini hiatus.


It was oddly fun. I got to watch a lot of t.v., sleep so much it made me tired and got to see 4 more yankees games than I ever would (4 more than 0).

And believe me living on 100 dollars a month in New York City is a FEAT and I don't tempt anyone to try it.

Yet, for all those who care... I am back at it, working that is. I work for a ridiculously established empire which owns more than several magazines and other online things. I'm more than happy. Although I work in advertising/marketing I am determined to move over to the editorial side, no matter what it takes, since I am a Journalism major.

NYC is a place very hard to live on 100 bucks a month (about 25 dollars a week). Yea yea, TimeOut New York gives you plenty of ideas for places to go, eat, see music, and do free things all over Manhattan and the boroughs, but did they include THE SUBWAY!? If you aren't lucky enough to have a monthly pass the subway eats away at your measly 25 bucks a week, especially if you are interviewing at least 2 to 3 times a week. A great show on NYC TV called "Cool In Your Code" is pretty fantastic. For anyone new to the city or for one who doesn't like to leave "The Village", this show is one to catch. Each show showcases a different zipcode and tells you what is cool to do, although not always inexpensive, but it can introuduce you to great eateries and places you've never heard of. New York has got a lot of them.

Ahhh, well it's late and I have found myself sucked into a terrible infomercial.

Anyone have any other websites/shows they know of that have even better ideas of free or inexpensive things to do in the city, let me know or let everyone know and leave a post!

I promise this site will get better and I might decide to have a purpose. :-)
