When a person spends the first 20 years of their life in Brooklyn, NY they tend to have very strong and opinionated views on life. I only trust people who throw out a curse word every now and then, I never walk down the street without looking over my shoulder a few times and I realized that the very distinct New York accent can be both enduring and one of the most annoying sounds know to man. I left Brooklyn for Phoenix almost seven years ago in pursuit of higher education and a stress-free, cheaper life. Higher education… check. Cheaper life… check. Stress-free… still working on that. I have a couple semesters left at ASU in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and am more than ready to graduate. Since moving to Phoenix, I have only lived Downtown, and have loved every minute of it. I think I was longing for a New York feel, and got my fix in Downtown Phoenix.
