Originally from New Mexico (".....so give me slooooow days filled with ease, gentle breeze, no humidity kinda heat....."). I've been in NYC for 12 years now, and my blood still hasn't adjusted to the humidity. I grew up dancing (ballet/modern) and went to school for it. I'm on hiatus currently but am slowly working my way back in. If I could I'd spend all my money on plane tickets, concerts, and vinyl. I also spend an awesomely inordinate amount of time in museums.
I'm approaching this from a casual starting point, and if the desire for anything serious is there then that's great. There's so much to see and do in this city (and this world) and it'd be great to see and do them with someone stellar.
