Fast pace, bright lights, big city.
New York State Of Mind
New York is home for me. I grew up in it’s shadows, and thrived off it’s fast pace. Sure the suburbs aren’t the same as living in the city; but I spent the majority of my life around 30 miles from midtown Manhattan. Moving away always feels like a breath of fresh air, and a welcome reprieve. Inevitably, I always end up missing NYC: the noise, fast pace, hoards of people and all.
Truth be told, moving is disorienting. When I left Chicago, I packed up all of my stuff and had it put into storage with the movers. I knew when I left that I didn’t know when I would find an apartment, but that I would be (temporarily) bringing as little with me as possible. I’m feeling a bit like a vagabond; I keep looking for things and I’m never sure where exactly they are. I forget what I have, and if I don’t mark every little thing down, I will completely forget it. Hopefully, I’ll settle everything soon, and feel a bit more like myself – with my head attached to my shoulders once again. For now, I’ll just keep pounding down those streets I love so very much.
