    So as some of you may know, I moved from CO to NY for a job


    After 3 weeks being here, I will say I miss CO a lot. I am super homesick and very bored when not at work. This area does not even have Chipotle/Big City/Qdoba or any decent burrito place for crying out loud:mad:

    Also, the area is very old in terms of residents. I miss living in a college town as there is not much to do at all it seems.....though there is no sales tax on food lol

    As far as work, it is interesting, but the company doesnt have any operations in CO (I knew this prior to accepting, just didnt think id miss home soo much)

    Any advice on how to get out of this rut? I miss my dogs and brothers and friends. Now Im just solo in NY...not as fun at all

    Come to Toronto on Sunday? ;)

    I kind of know how you feel, do you enjoy any sports or team activities? I know it sounds lame but sports leagues can be a great way to meet people who can become friends... It's best though if you sign up for the love of the sport/activity and see any potential friends as a side benefit though. Is there any chance of getting your dog(s) to your new place. That could help too.

    Go and volunteer somewhere.

    You will probably meet some nice young girls your age, who also care about people.

    That can't be bad, eh?? ;)

    My sympathies, but it almost sounds like you're suggesting Chipotle is a decent burrito place. I must be misunderstanding. ;)

    My cousin had to move from NY to CO for an advertising gig. He can't stand it. I think he's being oppressed by all that nature. :eek:Maybe you can trade with him?
    Seriously, the thing is not to tackle all of the NY experience. Make yourself at home in your neighborhood, be it at home or work. Supermarkets/take out counters/ are great local places to meet people. So are the Apple stores (d'uh).

    While I do enjoy Chipotle, but it is no "great burrito place." Chipotle is a great place to get Chipotle, it's own genre of food. "Great burrito places" are Mexican places, and Chipotle isn't a Mexican place by a long stretch.

    We have a Mexican joint down the street, they are Mexican and barely speak English. Chipotle is better than said place. All worship chipotle.
