Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City

Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

With the upload of this picture, I also have to share a secret...during my 6 years in New York City I was never inclined to step foot in here. Yeah I know it is idiotic but this year it all changed. 

This year at the Metropolitan Museum of Art there was an Alexander McQueen exhibition. I have to also admit that I was never a big fan of his either. But since the exhibition was in town I decided to go give it a visit. It was the biggest decision I've made in my life so far - Alexander McQueen and the Metropolitan Museum of Art...it was also a decision that changed my life inside out.

Both of these things left a huge impact on the way I see the world. Yes, they totally changed my perspective of the world and the people who live in it. It was like I was destined to see the exhibition and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City together. I am also grateful that the lines for the exhibition were never ending so we got a membership pass to the Metropolitan Museum for a year. This not only let us pass the enormous queues but it also gave me access to go to the museum anytime I wanted to and I took advantage of it. I have visited the museum several times. Every time I set foot in there I always get that same euphoric feeling I got the first time I went there. Now that I see that I was only fooling myself by passing on this magnificent place for such a long time I am planning to make up for the lost time and see everything that it has to offer.
