So I’ve been having a bit of a moment here with my old pal NYC, to say the least. Coming up on my 6-year anniversary of calling this eclectic city my home (holy cow time flies!), I’m finally starting to feel a bit worse for the wear. I mean six years ain’t bad though, am I right?
Anyway, I’ve had two pretty unfortunate subway incidences happen essentially back-to-back, and then yesterday Chris and I returned home from a lovely weekend away to discover that someone — most likely one of our neighbors — had torn open a package that was addressed to me downstairs and stolen the hard drive that was inside. Then left the package and packing exactly where it was.
All of this is to say … I’m not feelin’ the love for New York City right now the way I used to. With the plans that Chris and I are setting up potentially for the future, we will still be here, in Manhattan, for a little over another year, and at this point I feel both blessed and terrified to have that kind of time left. On the one hand I’m so happy to have 12+ months to do everything I still want to do in this fantastic city. On the other, I really want to leave here with happy memories and a slight twinge in my heart for what was the city I always wanted to live in.
Dramatic? Maybe. All I can say is I hope this unlucky streak sees its way out ASAP so I can get back to enjoying the things I love about living here. In honor of that, I thought I’d throw up a quick ‘Life Lately’ post, since most of the photos are from in and around here.
I’m hoping maybe that’ll get me back on track.
Anyway–here’s hoping I can get my magical Manhattan back … and ASAP!
