New York is meant to break you

"New Yorkers will spread you like butter and they will take advantage of you. Do not be friendly with anyone! Mind your business, just do what you have to do and come back to us when you're done."

"Keep to yourself and don't try to talk to anyone at work about your personal life. Nobody cares."

"You will fall in love ... with New York." 

"I love New York. I think you'll like it. You're smart girl. You'll be fine."

"... Look out for the Italian sandwiches."

"The South is too slow for people like you. you should go to California or maybe even New York."

"Listen, and ask better questions. Be more confident and assertive."

"NY is too hustle and bustle for you. California suits your demeanor, but then again, you grew up in Gidi (Lagos)"

Oh well, guess I'll find out in two weeks!
