Maybe because I am a Sagittarius and have an incessant yearning to escape life, avoid 9-5 jobs, and live my best creative life by doing my own thing that I picked Queen’s 1984 hit, “I want to break free”. I have a very distinct memory of me in high school, blaring this song while driving with the windows down in my hometown of Cockeysville, Maryland. Why yes, I am from a place called Cockeysville. It’s a wonderful place to grow up, but you can understand why NYC is a much better fit for me. I had to break free.
