Well my moving to city story isnt very normal. I came here to go to school in the fall and I didnt get accepted into the dorms so I tried for a while to find a place while still back home. It didnt really work that well. So me being on the interwebz I reached out to a friend who offered his couch for me to stay on until I found a place. I ended up staying there for almost two months while trying to find a place to stay. I checked out a couple places but for some reason they didnt work out. No one got back to me. Im thinking that it is probably because I didnt have a job or anything. In the middle of october I got an email from my school saying they had space in the dorms. So I moved in there as soon as I could.
I currently live in Astoria. I’m subletting a room at an apartment that one of my friends I made at school lives in. Her roommate went away for the summer. The rent is pretty pricey because its the biggest room in the apartment so its $760. Im still in the transition of getting a job and stuff so I dont pay for it all by myself.
Moving to the city is definitly a big scary/exciting step but its worth it. I love being here and I love all the friends I made and people I met. I just wish I was in a better financial standing to actually enjoy myself and not stress about everything.
I hope that helped. Good luck! :D
