When I moved to NY I had to fill out a 12 page application. I had to submit transcripts from University and go through a ton of effort to get my VISA. But worth it.
I've just completed the process to apply for an apartment in NYC. Not an easy feat. I almost thought that I'd need to do a blood test in order to provide a DNA sample, or perhaps the promise of my first born???? It was crazy. You ever want to get in the business of identity theft- then become a broker for an apartment building in NYC and you'll get everything you need.
But also worth it (?)- as I was approved today. I sign the papers tomorrow.
And then I will be officially a grown-up. Living on my own. In a teeny tiny studio in the UWS. : )
What was that show? "she's going to make it afterall"... (or was that MTM?)
