Next Saturday I’m moving to New York.
Over the last few years, I’ve been living a fairly nomadic lifestyle, figuring out exactly where I want to live for the next few years. I’ve never purchased furniture. I can fit all my belongings in a few suitcases. And I’ve thrown a few things in my mother’s garage. (Thanks Mom!) While I have been on the search for a home, I have been fortunate to have a great job with the folks at Social3i allowing me to test out a few different locations.
Why New York?
Everyone keeps asking me this. I’m not exactly sure. Last year, I visited the city for the first time and immediately thought “This is where I belong.” The fast pace of life. The constant noise. The brilliance. The lights. The movement.
We’ll see how it goes!
So What’s Next?
I have very few friends in New York. So let’s test the power of social media here…. I would love it if you could connect me with any cool people you may know in the big city. Email intros to ariannaodell (at) gmail.com or tweets to @arianna are awesome. If you could help me out here I will forever be indebted to you!
I have already heard the horror stories about looking for a place in New York. Fortunately, with sites like AirBnB I can buy myself a little time by renting month to month until I find a lease. Do you know anyone leasing something?
Though this last week is crazy, I would love to see as many Seattle friends as I can. Let’s make plans?
See you soon New York! Seattle, you’ll always have a piece of my heart.
