Nostalgic for the Beginning

Rolling over to the new year in 2022 meant reuniting with my girlfriend after traveling apart for the first time in two years, and then eventually both of us reuniting with our apartment and our normal life.

New York City – March 12th, 2021

3:15 PM. It’s 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The first nice day we’ve felt in a while. All apartment windows open, breeze blowing through. Five days until my birthday.

So yesterday, we took advantage of that and both went to hang out at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

I Hardly (K)New York: Two Bridges

I’ve been living in New York for a month and change. Everything at the apartment is pretty much settled, the initial shock of “shit, I live in New York City” has let up, and a feeling of normalcy is returning. Now I’m at a point where life feels pretty stable and normal again, but I still don’t really feel like I know this place! I … Continue reading I Hardly (K)New York: Two Bridges
