    Hey BHW,

    This is DC again, waving and greeting you as you are reading this. Before beginning this thread, I apologize for not completing my previous journey and opening a new one. I had some issues going on in my real life. Oh by the way, I got accepted to a college in New York City and I recently transferred here. Let me tell you something about NYC. You will find everything in the world here but it is extremely expensive to survive in this magnificent place. Right now I work 45 hours a week as a waiter to make basic needs meet (tuition + living expense). I am paying around $7.5k per semester for my college. I am currently renting a family's living room to stay which I pay around $420 a month. Well, let's not dive more about my status and talk about what I am looking forward to accomplish by creating this thread.

    It's very hard to concentrate on my studies when I am working that many hours per week. I have had a quite few success with IM before (Youtube, Teespring, PPD, etc) but as it did require me to put much of my time in it, it just faded away. Hence, I am setting up this thread to motivate myself and keep myself on track. My goal is to make stable $3k per month so that I could quit the shitty job and focus more on my studies.

    I have decided to use BTB's method with a twist. I won't be completely depending on FB groups for traffic but it will certainly be my main source. I will begin with updates starting next post. The City is new and I do lack friends. BHW has been like a family to me. I enjoy reading posts and recognize a lot of members already. Therefore, I would really appreciate your support guys :)

    Stay Awesome
    -DC

    Yes NYC is expensive, but the most expensive part is really rent. Once that is taken care of prices are not really much different than say FL etc. so best of success with your journey.

    Good luck with the journey OP. Never been to NYC but I imagine living costs are similar (or probably higher) than central London?
    Anyway good luck with the journey and hope you reach the goal you have set for yourself.

    Wishing you much luck, you won't be renting a living room for long you'll be renting the building! :D

    I have been to both, and London is far more expensive in my opinion. Not for things like accomodation, but little bits and bobs cost a fortune in London. I'v paid £7 for a pint down there!!

    I'm pretty sure that when we went to Vegas I paid 38.00 for room service breakfast for one... that place can be a tad pricey also.
