#GurlBye New York

“New York is like a bad boyfriend you love to hate and hate to love” I am the kind of guy who likes to do things “one way”.  After finishing Stanford University in 2008, I bought a one way ticket to New York.

In this magical land where commercials pop up every time you look at a TV, phone or computer for more than 3 minutes, it’s easy to start to think: “There has to be a better way!” and that better way comes sealed in plastic for $9.99 and up.  So why bother doing anything any other way?
