Moving into a new place is always a process. Miscellaneous belongings are scattered all over my room, there is no Internet or hot water, maintenance men are putting in new floors (read: making loud noises at 8 a.m.), and my clothes are having anxiety about whether or not they will fit in the closet (they won't).
It's a work in progress, but it will all come together eventually.
In the past month and a half, I've lived in New York City, Las Vegas, NYC again, Dayton, and Athens.
Life has been moving at full speed -- which is exactly why I feel compelled to slow down, take a breath, and reflect on everything I'm feeling, doing, and thinking right now.
Currently I am ...
- Listening to this song on repeat:
- Drinking Donkey coffee like it's water.
|Need. More. Coffee!|
- Getting back in the swing of schoolwork (note the highlighter and planner in above photo). I'm taking two online classes this summer: Money & Banking and Ethics, Media & Society. Can you feel my excitement radiating through the computer? Because I can feel your jealousy.
- Feeling incredibly thankful for my parents. Yesterday, they helped me move a bed, a desk, and a TV from my old house into my new house.
- Waiting impatiently for my pal Maddie's next blog post. She is interning in Manhattan this summer and is sharing her experiences via a witty and fashion-conscious blog. My NYC withdraw symptoms are greatly mitigated by her photos and musings. Our big city stays overlapped for one rainy day.
|Passing off the NYC torch|
- Anticipating an emotionally-charged reunion with Ping, the Ohio University student gym. I missed that place more than I missed most people while I was gone.
... and now, I'm getting back to organizing and cleaning my new house like the shameless OCD sufferer I am.
