I have been in New York City for about a month now. So, I am on my second round -
second subway card, second rent, second phone payment and so on.
First round was … - well it was intense. Some things- and I really want to stress that those
are SOME things- which I did and accomplished in this first round:
I got a room in an amazing apartment on the sunny side, and no kitschy illustration here,
I actually do live in Sunnyside. It is a neighborhood between Queens and Manhattan-
well connected, clean, safe and extremely boring.
About three weeks ago, I started my internship at United Nations Cartographic Section.
I other words, I work in a department which is responsible for ALL the UN maps-
for UN internal use as well as for public use. Yes, from time to time I spend time in printer room,
scanning, printing and folding maps. But as long as a task involves a word “maps”, I’m happy.
My first weeks at UN included many briefings on different issues which UNCS has to cover.
I also attended an international UN conference, or other words I chilled in a UN conference room
in a comfy chair and all I could think of was "is this really happening to me".
And in the middle of this chilling in I got a year older.
