29 +1 reasons why New York and me fall for each other

Today is celebration day: my New York Persona turned one-month-old. Weeks have passed without asking for checking-in or out at my desk. This uncontrolled way of time management is the only reasonable explanation how four weeks could just turn from present to past with such a pace.

New York, my love,

They say the first few months of a relationship is not real love but blind infatuation. To be honest, it is fine for me either way now; love or infatuation both makes us happy, so what to over-think?! And since we are already living together, it could just as easily be more than a simple infatuation, don’t you think?

I like celebrating. I would celebrate every and each day with you, my love, but we need to draw a healthy line between ordinary days and celebration days – or, at least, this is what they say. So I try to ease my celebrating heart and make it accept that we count only the months and above…
But here we go: a month has passed and I let my heart beat faster and collect some of the reasons why you and me fall for each other:

  1. We both have reachable aims: to make a change!

    Where else if not here. Go Virag,go,go,go!

  2. We love discovering each other!

    no day is the same; so many things to discover, so little time

  3. We become more open towards others and new things!

    I personally had no idea what hot cider was, so I just asked for one to find out... ... ah it is hot apple juice (and this is just one of the many)

  4. We both like daydreaming when everybody else is busy!

    occasionally you can find a corner, where you can stop and just be

    Subway rocks...and smells...and...just close your eyes, nose, ears and go with flow...

  22. We enjoy cheap and crap food to save some bucks to enjoy something else the next day!

This city evoked hope in me....and I hope it never to leave me again...

And it has only been a month…. can you imagine all the amazing things are still ahead of us?

‘I love you’

‘…and I love you, too’ – said the city before it switched off its lights to sleep. Ah no sorry that is an other city; this one never sleeps…
