When you move to New York City, there are a lot of choices that you have to make. Like, what kind of clothes are you going to wear? How will you make money when you don’t have a job? Is it worth doing the math to figure out if you should buy a monthly metro card and do you feel confident that you can do that math accurately anyway? Should you even try to make friends or is everyone here probably the worst and maybe you’ll just go back to Philadelphia as often as you can? Will you get cable? Is it weird if you go to the same comedy show every week and never talk to anyone? All questions that everyone, no matter who you are, has to contend with. Another thing you have to decide is how bad you’re willing to accept your living conditions to be. This can be tough because there are a lot of pluses and minuses everywhere you go. (This is very helpful so far.) Take this example for example — Plus: It has a dishwasher. Minus: It is in the BEDROOM! Lololo. And other classic hilarious examples. But you know where the minuses really outweigh the pluses very clearly I don’t care how much you love the neighborhood you are being ridiculous? In this video.
This is not a place where this young man should be living. Very good use of space sure, but very terrible use of brain. “It’s like the whole CITY is my apartment,” is what I’m definitely sure he’s said so many times. But it’s not. As it turns out, nothing is your apartment. You live in a small storage compartment, just like lots of other people who also say the whole city is their apartment. Get a slightly more real apartment and then take some kind of transportation to your favorite whatevers. Or get roommates and don’t be an enormous baby about it. Be a human don’t be a BOOman. Boooooooooooooooooo. (Via LaughingSquid.)
