Time flies really fast. This isn’t breaking news, there’s only 24 hours in a day and while a two-hour exam in school can feel like it stretches on for ages, two hours pretty much anywhere else goes by in the blink of an eye.
I graduated college almost a full semester ago. While my friends go hurdling towards graduation – and all the good (spring days on the patios at our favorite bars) and bad (mega-final projects, papers, and exams) that comes with it – I’m here in New York City. Living here full-time has been an adjustment, but it also still feels like a temporary situation. Maybe that’s because I’m looking to move (already) or that I’m changing jobs (already).
View from the rooftop bar I went to over the weekend with my cousins. Perfect evening!
But I maintain that graduating early was the best damn decision I ever made. Save my friends and orgs I adored at school, there was no reason to wait around one more semester to finally move here.
Alas, I’ve been in New York for a while now and have become settled. Like, routine, this-is-my-life settled. Boring. I’m loving the majority of my time here, but there’s something mentally draining about waking up, going to work for nine and a half hours, coming home, maybe going to the gym, eating dinner, go to sleep, repeat. There’s little variety – my friends and I save our socializing for the weekends when we have time and aren’t knee-deep in work tasks.
So I’m shaking things up a little bit! Starting with this site. As in, I’m recommitting to it. Regular blog posts about updates on my life and observations in digital media and all of the above. That’s all I have to say for now, but I think it’s a step in the right direction.
