The story behind the blog

I am a graduate student finishing a Masters degree in Advertising at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. After graduating in May I plan on moving to New York to start a career in the Ad biz. This can be an exciting and daunting task for many reasons, but mainly because the move is a big one and advertising is a hard industry to break into. However, I couldn't be more excited about the challenge and I am really looking forward to the experience of a new life in the big city.

Anyway, enough about me for now; there will be plenty of time for that later. I want to get to the point of this blog. As I said in the header, I want this blog to be a place where people can find helpful information about making the move to NYC and starting life as a New Yorker. I hope that others will share their advice and personal experiences about the actual moving process, finding an apartment, getting around, and if we get to it - getting a start in the Ad biz. As the days go by and my moving date approaches I will detail my own journey and the things that I learn. My hope is that this information will help make someone else's move a little easier, a little less expensive or a little less intimidating. Along the way I will collect relevant stories, links and anything else I can find and let you know about them.
