On Saturday evening, I went to see The Great Gatsby with a couple of my friends. I’ve been waiting a damn long time fr this movie and was pleased that it did not disappoint. I thought the casting was excellent, especially Carey Mulligans portrayal of Daisy. Leo wasn’t too bad to look either, I suppose….
However, the movie re-ignited my love for New York. This happens nearly every time I watch a movie or television show based in New York, and it all started with the show Friends. The two years I spent in college I was completely obsessed with the city, and dreamed of moving there after grad. ( I know, I know, typical small town girl dream ) Unfortunately, real life bit me in the ass and made me realize it wasn’t going to happen. ( Atleast not right now ) .
I believe my fascination with New York is due to the fact that life there would be so completely different from where I currently live, and I want to experience something completely different from what I’m used to. One of my greatest fears is that I am not taking enough risks in my life, not experiencing everything I possibly can. I know that picking up and moving to New York wouldn’t solve any of my problems, and would cause many more, but sometimes it is just nice to day dream!
I was supposed to go to New York in April, but my decision to go back to school, and pay for it out of my pocket, prevented me from going. So, for now, I’ll continue to watch Sex and the City re-runs to satisfy my New York love.
