All students living in the Juilliard Residence Hall were required to move out last May 14, 2016. Since finding a room or an apartment in New York City is really tricky and I haven't found a place yet I am currently crashing into 2 of my classmates' apartment in Washington Heights. Meanwhile, the search for a place of my own continues.
I was surprised to be very happy living in an actual apartment. It's as if I am faced with a new adventure: how to survive. I am working part-time in the Juilliard library now to pay for my own expenses. I've done my first grocery shopping even though I do not know how to cook (yet). I'm making things up as I go along. I've never lived my life this way as I've never been in this kind of situation before. I trust that what I will acquire internally from whatever it is I have to go through now will prove invaluable to me in the future.
In the meantime, here is a picture of where I love to run in the morning:
And here is a picture of a salad I made out of greens, assorted nuts, mangoes, turkey slices and canned sausages:
I am a Graduate Drama student at The Juilliard School from Quezon City, Philippines.
