First Rule of Moving

I've just moved from OKC to NYC this week. There is almost too much to write about all of the things I've learned in just the first week, but here is probably the most important. If you are moving anywhere (not just small town to big city), find yourself a COMFORT FOOD.
Mine's chocolate. And its a good one to have because anywhere you move they have chocolate. If they don't have chocolate just give up because you're not going to be happy there!

Once you've figured that out, go out and buy a crap load. Like enough to where if you have to lock yourself up and not leave for three days, you still won't run out of whatever it is. And then you're game. The first thing I did when I was by myself here in NYC was eat about 50 pieces of Hershey's Nuggets (not my favorite, but sometimes you have to just get through the day...). That calmed me down enough to go back outside and walk the town and I've been eating a little less each day.

More advice to come!

I'm not seeing how you eating 50 pieces of chocolate is any different than you living in Newcastle...

While chocolate is a good choice, I probably would have gone for fettuccine in champagne truffle sauce. That, my friend, would make Newcastle disappear forever....
