i may have 2 steal it and apply it to my life goals or at the very least my facebook interests.

diana: I think the answer is also no, but sometimes I wonder if I would've cultivated Western dreams had I grown up on that side of the mississippi. I don't understand the passive voice either, I just sometimes feel I could be using it. So stressful.

e. I've never been anywhere much different from where I am. I'm acute to the smaller differences -- I could feel a supremely

riese: I was Lost in Translation for like 2 weeks and then reality called and I had to go back to start a job I knew I didn't want but had to take or risk moving back home. Not sure what you'll be doing out in the Far East, but there's so much to see there that will blow your mind. I did a whole "back to my roots" tour of Asia a couple of years ago for 2 months -- let me know if you want the

2008-03-31T11:56:00.000-04:00

"my sadness over your two-month city departure saddens me."

yep, it's not your departure that saddens me, but my sadness that saddens me. it's a vicious cycle.

2008-03-31T11:55:00.000-04:00

i could comment on this forever, but i won't. however, my sadness over your two-month city departure saddens me. who am i going to see broadway shows with? sigh.

oh, my word verif is lydtop. that's sort of a real thing.

2008-03-31T09:48:00.000-04:00

This blog was so beautifully written that I teared up a bit reading it. I wanted to live in NYC when I was younger, and have been there a few times, but never made it. I now live in the town I grew up in for most of my life (minus the yrs from birth to 8 when I lived on Long Island, and the 5 years I moved to a town not too far away).

Not to be too cliche, but the grass really always

2008-03-31T01:21:00.000-04:00

This blog gives me too many feelings. It's like a whole stack of poetry, making me go all strange.

I've moved kind of often, but have only ever wanted to leave once; I was twelve and ungrateful and so very at ease, the earth knew my bare feet so well, the air knew my lungs. Very fine carrots grow in rural Alberta, I would eat them sweetly straight out of the ground, cleaning them on the

2008-03-31T00:39:00.000-04:00

I grew up on LI (so close; so far) but my parents didn't take me to NY all that often, and not to the places that mean anything to me now. I can't ever remember a time when I didn't want/need to live here, at least for some period of time. I sometimes wonder if I grew up somewhere further if I'd feel differently. Would I have been out of reach of this city's magnetic force? I like to think

2008-03-30T23:57:00.000-04:00

jaime - similarly, I never saw another way. Maybe it was always being involved in the arts (with similarly inclined friends, of course), but it always has felt like the only thing to do. What else do people do? Where else do they go? And are there REAL ARTISTS there, or just posers in nice cars? But yes, always -- always defined by NYC.

dorothy - thank you!

NEP - Oh, I didn't

2008-03-30T23:53:00.000-04:00

Loved the blog. It made me ask, once again, how I managed to make it only 70 miles from the town that I grew up in. Your description of Ypsilanti was spot on! I spent a year there with wall to wall light grey carpeting. And the reference to the "world famous Penis Tower" made my 13 year old boy brain giggle. Thanks for giving justification to my Sunday procrastination.

2008-03-30T21:44:00.000-04:00

i always want to get out and be free, but somehow my feet are stuck on these comfy streets.
when i say comfy what i mean is familiar and easy.
i dream of moveing if not just to re-find myself...but when all is said im just to weak!!!
maybe secretly im comfy being lost in familiararity!!

that comment makes soooo much more sense in my head??!

loved the blog...enjoy

2008-03-30T20:25:00.000-04:00

You probably know I'm going to say this, but I'm glad Ohio made the list, and made number one. Sometimes, I'm embarrassed to say how much I love Ohio. I defend it, though, and me, too, by saying I love Columbus. specifically, a college town with culture and politics and life, but still happily midwestern, quaint, urban, hip. I grew up in Akron, the old rubber capital of the world, but I think

A few good travel writing leads:

1) Around the Bloc by Stephanie Elizondo Griest

2) Japanland by Karin Muller

and, at the risk of sounding pseudo-populist

3) Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

2008-03-30T18:21:00.000-04:00

I think you sum up New York perfectly with:
New York fucks me. New York fucks me so hard that I cry.

I see New York as tough love. It makes me want to relocate. Think Starbucks will hire me?

2008-03-30T18:18:00.000-04:00

I have a lot of good things to say about this blog. Mostly because I'm in that place in life where all you want to do is leave... but can't figure out where to go to re-start.
I'll save my rambles.

And I now officially have inspiration to start my blog (which I've had for far too long, but nothing to really elaborate on).
So thank you, thank you, thank you.

2008-03-30T18:12:00.000-04:00

a. i will miss you in china, but my gparents just were there and loved it so i know you will be in good hands.

2008-03-30T17:46:00.000-04:00

I’ve lived in the same town, same house, for all my eighteen years, my parents having lived here for all of there lives too, I'm a born ‘n’ bread Farnborough girl. I’ve never been away for longer than a week. I slate the place all the time but I know if/when I move, Ill miss it, ill miss my street, ill miss walking routes that I could do blindfolded, I like familiarity.

But I dream of

2008-03-30T17:02:00.000-04:00

Fuck Bronxville, it's all about Yonkers. And China seems crazy, I want to go.

2008-03-30T15:45:00.000-04:00

Your productive Sunday made me feel even more guilty for sleeping in and then making half-hearted attempts at showering/grocery shopping/cleaning. Anyway, it is a bit intimidating leaving my first comment for all the world to see but I couldn't help feeling completely connected to this post. I just moved/ran away from my beloved New York (the only place I've ever lived besides Ann Arbor)



You are lovely.

2008-03-30T15:39:00.000-04:00

You are lovely.

2008-03-30T15:00:00.000-04:00

I sometimes wonder if I'd've questioned moving to NYC post-college if I didn't work in a NYC-centric industry. I mean, sure, I could've considered a job in regional theatre, but seriously. (I did apply for one job in Chicago last year. Which is the only job that would get me to leave NYC.) For me, family is here, ish. Mom and dad are each under an hour away, in opposite directions. I was
