"I was in New York for. , , 17 years and saved and saved, "she told us during a screening of Sundance favorite" The Farewell "at Metrograph on the Lower East Side.
She remembered that not so long ago: "Ramen noodles were a big part of my life. , , especially when standing. I made a pizza for $ 1 apiece. My last apartment was terribly broke. , , I moved there because I just broke up with my ex-boyfriend. So the apartment had this sad energy and I wanted to start my life in 2015 again. Now I think I have a warmer presence to say hello to my neighbor. "
But: "2013, 2014 was my trickiest point when I had to go to an apartment court. I was so close to being driven out – it was real. I just thought, "Do I have to go back to Cleveland with my parents?" , , I had eviction notices on my door that anyone could see. "
These days, "the best part is to have your own place, to go around naked anyway" and "to meet my neighbors. , , I've never done that because I lived in a dump that I could barely afford. "
