this is loosely based off of ‘Ever Since New York.’ as I said, LOOSELY. send in requests! I will write anything you send in! hope you enjoy!
You had a bad year. And the year wasn’t even over yet. You were 21, but being a bartender was not the ideal lifestyle that you wanted, but it worked. Your parents definitely didn’t want that lifestyle for you either. You weren’t living at home anymore, and hadn’t for a while, but they were always down your back trying to push you to be something that would cause tremendous success for yourself. Get an occupation where you were a lawyer or doctor. That was something you were absolutely not interested in. It was June, and you were looking for an escape from your tired old town. So why not go to the city that never sleeps?
Living in New York had been your dream since you were little. Watching those TV shows where the girl from a small town went to the big city. Where the girl got a crappy job and lived in a crappy apartment that still somehow still cost you $1,500 a month’s rent. You wanted the struggle, which sounds idiotic but thinks worked. You did go from a small town to a big city. You did get the job, but it was actually a good one for you. You did get the crappy apartment, which you had a love/hate relationship with, but the money from the good job wasn’t always enough which led to the struggle. You didn’t enjoy or hate it, but you were happier here. But you had been here for a month, expecting to be so excited and full of life- unlike your time in your hometown- but you still felt alone.
