Gearing up for New York

July 18, 2007

I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t end this blog. Though I know it has been a while, I wanted to say thanks for everyone who took an interest in my trip. I’d also like to say to all the people who have expressed to me they would like to do something like what I did… you can:) It just takes some planning, saving, and a desire for adventure. Here’s something I wrote for the Tufts Daily a few weeks back entitled “There really isn’t any rush”

Anyway, things happen quickly. I arrived home in Boston on Easter Sunday to my parents open arms. 5 days later I was in New York interviewing for a job in New York city. My first 3 weeks home I slept in 6 different places in the process of seeing family and friends, working on Cape Cod, and interviewing.

The interviewing went well, and almost 3 weeks after I got back, I was offered a job at Cowen and Company as a financial analyst. I’m doing equity research (analyzing stocks) in the restaurant industry. It is something of a leap from spending the summer waiting tables, but the stock market is something I’ve been interested in since I was about 16. So far it is going well and although sitting at a desk all day takes some getting used to, I take comfort in the fact that I didn’t do that for a very long time.

A real job. It might be a disappointment to some who have lived vicariously through me over the past few years, but I’m very excited for the opportunity. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

In the meantime, I’m going to try and blog about things that interest me. Namely technology, food, and life in NY. You can find the new blog at Please check it out when you have a moment.

I hope you all enjoyed reading. Do it while you can!
