Although there are many things I love about LA, after nearly 6 months I’ve found myself missing some things about New York City. Honestly, it has taken me about this long to really even notice. A couple of months into my time here someone asked me if I missed New York City and it hadn’t even occurred to me.

Sometimes it seems like everyone around you is having the time of their lives, working their ultimate dream job with a hot babe by their side. Then there are the friends who are seemingly always on a relaxing fancy vacation. Even if you’re not prone to the occasional (and unadvised!) comparison, it can be hard not to feel a little discouraged. Or maybe you’re working towards your ultimate dream and you are not yet seeing the results you want. Or maybe you’ve been job searching for months and nothing has quite panned out yet.
