For weeks I’ve been in a daze, in between places. At home, feeling like I’d practically gone already and then here, not quite settled. In addition to being awarded a second grant to cover accommodation expenses, I’ve actually found somewhere to temporarily live. Triple Yay! It’s taken weeks… and weeks, but I’ve at least settled on a sublet/s for December. I’ll definitely be in the East Village until late December, then I may have to go through the whole ordeal again. Hopefully, I’ll still be in the East Village January and February, but I’m waiting to confirm. I’m not sure if it’s easier to find a sublet when you’ve landed. It seems New Yorker’s want to stay in their home during the fall. In the meantime, I no longer need to be super preoccupied with the immediate possibility of being literally homeless during a New York winter. I can finally move on with my work. Yay!
