Home Sweet Home
Let’s actually call it bittersweet—I’m psyched to be back in New York City, but sad that my year of travel is over, that I’m not waking up in a rural village tomorrow, exploring temples, eating noodle soup for breakfast….
…I’m also not using 2-in-1 shampoo or, well, eating noodle soup for breakfast.
Like I said, bittersweet. But, I’m focused on being present in the moment. I’m catching up with friends & family, unpacking storage boxes and re-discovering NY, which I heart, heart, heart. (Sidenote: I also didn’t realize how much I missed DVR and Heinz ketchup).
And yea, it’s been a bit of a culture shock…in addition to some literal shocks like discovering the price of health insurance (which, if you’re wondering, comes out to $1,419.83. A MONTH). Also, since when did platform sneakers become a thing?
My healthcare—and future—depends a lot on the job situ. I have some exciting interviews this week for travel-related jobs, freelance gigs (which I could do while traveling) and more traditional jobs that would commence a completely different adventure. I’ll be documenting it all and hope to share some exciting news soon.
And, for the moments when my thoughts are far in the future, I’m busy planning a trip to Cuba in November, Africa or South America this winter and an excursion with my family in August, potentially to Tibet.
