My NYC Trip 2018'

June 6, 2018

 

 

Hi loves!

 

As most of you likely know, this May, my best friend and I took a trip to NYC, just to get away from our lives for a week, and find a change of scenery. 

 

I'd been to New York a few times, but this was my first trip as a blogger, and it changed my life. 

 

I knew that this trip to NYC was going to do one of two things: it was either going to re-inspire me to love shooting street photography in Minneapolis (where I live), or it was going to reaffirm my belief that I need to live in New York.

 

 

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), it did the latter. This trip gave me a crystal clear view of my future- in New York, with the endless variety of streets, and aesthetics, and constant whooshing of bright yellow taxis, my creativity came to life. NYC reaffirmed that I am good at street photography, and I am capable of capturing the shots I want. While I personally believe that I've gotten some great shots in Minneapolis, this city has gotten too small for me. My best friend and I shoot every week, but we've quickly run out of new places to shoot, and I find myself getting bored with something that I'd otherwise be passionate about. 

 

I know that I'm an escapist, but this time, I think it's more than that. For what I want to do, and my vision for the future, I need to live in New York.

 

 

And I already knew this. It has been my plan for years to move to New York after college, but now I can't stop thinking about it. I have one more year of college, and I can feel myself screaming and scratching to get out of here, unable to function or sit still, while knowing that there is a city, only a few hours away by plane, that can fulfill my vision for my creativity, and give me what I need. 

 

I really wanted New York to re-inspire me, and it did. But it has also taught me what my blog and my photography could look like all the time, if I could just be there. 

 

 

And I know that this is something more than a "I'm on vacation so everything seems shinier" case. There have been only a couple times in my life, where I have been somewhere or done something and known exactly what I need to be doing. This was one of those times.

 

So, I am going to spend my last year of university, figuring out the logistics of how I can move to New York after college. I'm not sure how it's going to happen yet, but I'm going to make it happen.

 

New York, I'll see you in a year.
