Catching up

Swans in Sheepshead Bay

Swans in Sheepshead Bay

I’m back! I’m guessing you’re wondering what happened to me and the place I was supposed to have set up before my surprise trip to New Orleans.. Long story short, I missed my last chance to snag an option that was relatively cheap AND close to Manhattan and had to rely on my backup sublet which turned out to be the best option I had!

Let me explain: lightening-quick decision making is rewarded here in New York, there’s just too many other people scrambling for the same things and probably expecting less than you are. I was amazed by how quick people were to throw money down. Even after being the 1st pick to see the place in Sunset Park, the 15 minutes I took to “think about it” resulted in me losing the place to someone who had literally come in five minutes after me and offered the cash! This appeared to be a loss but ended up being a blessing since this alternate place turned out to be beautiful and the people I’m sharing the space with are lovely. I acquired this option through my boyfriend’s college friend who lives in Sheepshead Bay.

Just yesterday afternoon I managed to drag all my suitcases down 4 excruciating flights of stairs to a cab (with help from friendly New Yorkers of course) from East Village to the southernmost part of Brooklyn. I received a warm welcome by Roxy and her family who all turned out to be friendly creative types. After conversing with them for a while I went to explore the bay where I witnessed the prettiest sky I have seen since I left California. These were all good signs for what’s to come, I am certain of it.

1) Sublet “Check”

2) Job “In progress”

3) Permanent place “On hold”

Alright not too bad, 1 out of 3 major tasks completed. I’m putting the pedal to medal now because I’m determined to get my life stabilized. Onward and up!

    Nicole: I am so happy for you, I know you will get far in life, because you are not afraid of getting out of your comfort. Very proud of you. God Bless you always. Love you


    Lo maximo sobrina, you are awesome! That’s it… “Positive mind, positive results.” Remember that perseverance is the key to anything in life. I know that once “you” are determined to do something “you” don’t stop until you get it. 🙂 I am so happy that you like the place you chose to live in, remember that things happen for a reason and they don’t happen when we want them to happen, they happen in God’s time, when we are ready for them. Just like your place in Sunset Park didn’t happen because, you were supposed to be in your new sublet close to Manhattan… blessings do come Nikita, 🙂 sobretodo para chicas lindas como tu y con suenios de grandeza como tu… I love how you are sobrina! You will go far Nicolita… you are so intelligent, you have always been and you will always be. Intelligent and kind, witty and cute.These are wonderful traits of yours since you were a little girl. Can’t wait to see your next post. What kind of work are you looking for? Maybe I can help. Te quiero mucho Nikita, Take really good care of yourself and be aware of your surroundings. Your Guardian Angel is always with you! Beautiful picture of the sunset, enjoy! I will keep putting your name in the Temple Prayer List every two weeks, so thousands of people keep praying for you. Besitos de tu tia Gigi. 🙂
