Oh How Things Change


For years, I wondered if moving to NYC was something I needed to be pursuing. Career opportunities were scarce in my home and I knew that the big city encompassed everything I was looking for. Well, 4 months after asking myself, AGAIN, if I should move to NYC, I got a job offer I couldn't refuse. Did it just drop on my lap? No, I worked my network hard until I was able to find something suitable, and I'm really glad I did. I've been living in NY for 4 months now and life is good.

Things I like:

- Always something to do

- Great job

- My dog is here with me

- New people/cultures

- Being queer is OK

Things I don't like:

- I miss my family

- Eating healthy isn't as easy as I thought it would be

- I don't have many friends yet

I've done many a cool thing since I moved here, and it still feels like I have so much more to do, but I do like staying home, too. NYC is a fun, dynamic city, but I need my 8hrs of sleep...
