The confusion has settled. Two weeks of uncertainty can really throw off the most diligent of people. I'm settled in at my new place for now. Right on St. Mark's Place and 3rd Avenue. Truly in the heart of it all. I couldn't be more ecstatic and awestruck. It takes me 10-15 minutes to walk to work with the most amazing scenery and culture to take in on the trek. My friends are just an L ride away, and who knows.. Maybe I'll settle in Brooklyn for a while? But, for now, the East Village has everything I ever wanted for as long as I've wanted to live in New York City.
This means good things for my wardrobe ;)
And for anyone out there who is interested.
