Today was very windy and gloomy, but the one thing about New York that never gets old is no matter what the weather.. it is beautiful. I love getting lost in the neighborhoods and seeing what kind of cute "secret" coffee shops I can find. I believe in helping the small startups that are so passionate about their little shops that only seat maybe 10 people. Being unique is hard but somehow there are so many unique places in nyc that may be hiding but still have a huge fan club. I went for a stroll in soho today and found a badass stationary that is pictured below. It is random but also a tad non-classy/classy at the same time. ha I am so ironic (oh well)...
I then wandered back into the East Village which I am somewhat familiar with. I came across Ost Cafe. It is very romantic(Paris Like) you could say and made me feel like I was european for a minute ha. I sat at the window to people watch...naturally..and enjoyed probably the best cappuccino I've ever had. Maybe it's the fact that I was finally realizing I am back in nyc or that I am already on my second internship for school, but today was simple and perfect. No pressure, I just got to look out the window and have a moment to myself. This happened so fast and I am so grateful I have an amazing mom who supports me and lets me follow my dreams at 19. I don't think I could ever be able to thank her enough but I intend to make her proud with everything I try to do. Accomplishing goals is hard but I intend to stay as humble, grateful, strong and loving as she taught me to be through my many adventures now and for what's to come. Support is huge especially since I come from such a small town and many people don't understand my love for such a huge/busy city and ambitious dreams I always talk about. Ever since I was 14 I told my friends I will end up in New York one day doing something awesome....and look what happened! I can't thank my friends and family enough for watching me strive for my dreams. I know they don't understand "that feeling" that I get when I am flying over a city that has skyscrapers for miles. This place gives me that push to make myself better and I feel so much more in my element that is constantly inspiring me. I want to eventually do something someone else can hopefully want to aspire too.
Well enough of all this serious talk..make sure to check out a couple shots from today!
