Thursday night, both my roommate and I worked super late, so decided to treat ourselves to a dinner out instead of heading home to cook. There’s a ton of restaurants in the Upper East Side that we’ve been meaning to try since we moved in 6 months ago. We decided to check Bocado Cafe, on the corner of Lexington and 87th, off of our list.

No shame). My friends Haley, Meghan, Kate and I all had scheduled to have dinner together because somehow our schedules just never seem to match up.

Hello! Welcome to The Naturalized New Yorker – my first attempt at getting back into the writing game after being on hiatus since last May. I graduated from college last year with a degree in journalism, and my dream was always to move to the Big Apple and work as a writer or freelancer – AKA something that always looks super glamorous in movies.

Now, I know a lot of people – my roommate included – will say, “Start a blog? Like a blog blog?” And, no. I don’t want a fashion blog where I take pictures of myself in outfits I wouldn’t actually wear and post it for fashion-y people to read. And, while I love those blogs and read tons of them, it’s just not my personality to do something like that. So, I’m deciding to take an alternate route.
