I am a huge fan of cross-country moves post break-up. Burn the ships, as they say!
Don't think I would have ever moved to NYC if my first love hadn't broken my heart. Best thing that ever happened to me. I thank him for it.
The Hell's Angels clubhouse was right nextdoor. I was friends with archangel's old lady. He evicted a craigslist roommate who scared me.
I never studied abroad but my first year in NYC I lived in a 10x10 room above the bar where I worked with no TV or Internet. It was awesome
Nobody handed me a salaried position writing at a magazine when I was twenty-three and had zero experience. Quite rightfully!
One thing I didn't clarify in that article is I bartended and waitressed for years to supplement early freelance income from ESPN.
