Fotograph Friday – Union Square

” Union Square Park” – Friday, August 16th

No big update for today, these generally won’t be. Just hanging out in Union Square waiting for a friend. Saw an apartment earlier but I don’t think it’s going to work out. Keep your eye out for Snippet Sunday in a few days, and the regularly scheduled post next Tuesday.

Welcome to New York, It’s been waitin’ for you…

You might be wondering why you are here, and what this blog is about. Well i’m going to tell you.

My name is Dave, I’ve been a resident of New York state for the past twenty-nine years. If you are still here, you are probably wondering what this is all about. Well, for the twenty-nine years, and four months prior to today. I spent my life learning, and building towards one goal. Getting a job, and moving to Manhattan.

That twenty-nine years encompassed dozens of jobs, three different colleges, and a total of three different majors. Initially, I went to school for Meteorology at the SUNY Oswego, and after a semester there I wound up dropping out of the program. I was a young kid, first time away from home, and I got a little carried away with the drinking. I decided that I couldn’t trust myself to keep in check, so I moved back home and began my journey at Dutchess Community College. Upon, graduation from DCC I wound up at Marist College to complete my bachelors in Television and Film Production. After a year away from the college, I wound up back there working for them, In which I worked on my Masters Degree in Information Systems Management. I would spend the next five years working for the college.

In July of this year, I finally got that job in Manhattan.

With that came a series of rapid fire changes. From leaving the steady job I’ve been employed at , to moving out of the home I’ve been in for the past twenty-nine years. Living in my friends apartment, and commuting to the city every morning until I find my way into an apartment in one of the boroughs.

So, once a week i’ll be posting an update in the blog. Some weeks, it will be a topic of the week, like the perils of commuting, the dating scene in the city, and how game of thrones finding an apartment in the boroughs can be. Some weeks, it will be something I observed while making my way to work, Commuting on Metro North, and the Subway lines has its perks. Finally, Perhaps if I have nothing better to talk about in a given week it may just be stream of consciousness, an update on my life itself. Sometimes talking about yourself is important too, it helps with your growth as a person

So, if this sounds like something you’d be interested in checking out periodically. Hit that subscribe button, or bookmark the page. I’m going to try to update pretty consistently. On either Monday, or Tuesday nights. Other than the weekly standard post, you may periodically see quick snippets, pictures, or links to videos of things i’d seen or done. I look forward to this journey with you all in tow. See you all next week!
