I Miss New York
We moved to Maplewood, NJ at the beginning of January and I'm missing NYC hard. It was home for 22 years with the convenience of walking around, ordering whatever/whenever, never feeling alone and the comfort of knowing who, what, when, where everything and everyone is. But I also remember arriving all those years ago and kicking my parents out of my NYU dorm ("I got this") only to freak out when I realized I didn't even have a map (pre cell phone days).
NJ and the burbs will get easier too (I hope) and Spring will come and driving will be fun and friendly small town vibes will bring about new friends. Until then...I will daydream.
