Listen to this song while you read what i've written lol..
Its been almost half a year now that i look out the window and wonder why i dont hear the cars, see the empire state or whatever it may be of New York City. I love Toronto, the city i was born in and have lived my whole life, but its not for me... At least anymore.. I traveled to New York in July and as i sat downstairs @ the Mercer Hotel eating a delicious entree off the menu i wondered why im only here for a limited amount of time?.. My mother & I travelled to show-rooms from BCBG-MAXAZRIA right near times square to a little shop in the fashion district.. Breakfast in SoHo one day and another at the Four Seasons, lunch at Bergdoor's one day and then the next at Sak's. Dinner's in the upper east side, dessert at Central Park.. The cliche Times Square pic, photo-ops on Wall St and random people taking my photo at the corner of Mercer & Prince.. In my head they were the paparazzi that will soon wait for me as i step out of the studio.
There is just so much to want, live and do in New York.. Its 3:02am here in Toronto and i just cant get over it... Its a 45 minute air-plane ride to a whole other life..
I cant wait till September, im applying to F.I.T (Fashion Institute of Technology) for either Fashion Design or Advertising & Marketing.. More in Fashion Design though, its always been one of my few dreams to be a fashion designer. This dream to live in New York has been the longest and strongest dream ive held (obivously along with music) and i pray, hope & definetly will begin working on making this happen!
