You are perfect.
When friends of ours had a very early baby, a group chipped in to get a house-cleaning service for them. They'd been at the hospital on and off for weeks and hadn't had time to think about their own space. That sort of gift certificate might be good down the line? (But only if you think your friend would take that as a gift and not a hint, of course.)
Being in the city gave me enough adrenaline for the first year to live on a combination of secondhand books, park walks, and bagels. Creative jobs don't pay a lot, but other things fall into place. You'll find a way to make it work. There are great happy hours, and plenty of people to hang out with in your field. Plus, if your friends work in theater/dance/performance, they'll help you get into their shows for free and you can help them get into yours. Stuff you'd never pick on your own that you might love. Good luck! Enjoy it!
What do you feel like celebrating this week, friends?
Tell me the thank you note you never wrote and always regretted, or the best one you received!
