Why did I leave sunny Florida for this place? My answer changes depending on my mood -- sometimes it's that I moved here to become a writer. Sometimes it's that I want to try every single slice of pizza this city has to offer.
Making rent each month meant planning every expense down to the cent and food was one of the only things that wasn't a fixed cost. So increasingly I found myself cutting it out of my budget, and just not organizing to have something to eat every day.
