Oh Brooklyn, still on my mind everyday. Now more than ever, probably because my graduation awaits me in the spring and I can’t stop thinking of what to do, where to go, how to go and, oh, how the heck am I going to afford this? I guess these are those “real world” anxieties that so many speak of after your school days are complete. So I have been doing what I do best, developing a plan from points A to Z. As I have been doing my research, usually on my iPad late at night, I have stumbled upon some interesting facts along the way. Yeah, interesting…
Did you know that Atlanta grocery stores sell milk by the gallon at $3.50, and in New York it goes for around $6?
There was an attack in Miami in recent years that involved bath salts, a homeless man and a missing face. Don’t ask, just… know that it happened.
It is actually illegal to fly a kite within the city limits of Chicago. So I’m assuming inner city kids don’t get that kite day, which was totally awesome growing up.
There are more than 200 thrift stores in the Los Angeles area. See, this is why I love the West Coast. Instead of a McDonald’s on every corner, go pop some tags instead!
Although doing my research on major cities led me to some weird sites, odd information and “good-to-know” facts about them, I am more focused on the rent in these concrete jungles. I say jungle, because it’s going to take me training a monkey to do tricks to be able to afford these prices.
Ready? (Hold onto your wallets.)

Oh how I love that the ATL is the cheapest of all of these places. On the other hand, I hate that I am going from the cheapest to the most expensive. But to be totally honest, anything could happen after graduation. I’ll definitely keep an open mind about any potential relocations. All I know is to keep my dream as the finish line, and keep Florida far, far away.
you know where to find me,
