oh hey, it's been a while!
partly because i was working long hours in boston.
partly because i was overwhelmed with the amount of traveling i was doing.
partly because i watched all 6 seasons of madmen in record time.
...then watched the entire season of orange is the new black.
partly because i was eating out every night instead of cooking.
partly because my "fun" time included going to whole foods every night just to get out of my dungeon of a basement apartment in beacon hill.
partly because i was feeling lonely being away from mr p.
...but mostly, it was being uninspired. life was getting very routine in an unhappy way. i didn't do anything cool, i didn't eat anything cool, and because there was no end in sight, i didn't have time to even think about anything other than work, eat, travel, sleep...
i've been back in jersey city for a few weeks now, and lemme tell you, i've been loving every second of it! mr p and i have met up with many friends we haven't seen all summer, we've been going to kickboxing, feeling great, getting proper sleep (in my own bed for once!!), and eating mr p's delicious food again! we had a few "clean out the freezer and fridge" cookouts, and haven't turned on the AC in weeks.
i never really considered myself a homebody, but after so much travel, i just craved being home with no plans. it's incredible how much better i feel, and how many times i smile just for simple things.
i didn't really work out while i was in boston, and i ate out WAY too often. now that i'm home i'm back on the right track, and just getting back into kickboxing has made me feel awesome. i've made a decision to at least get in a good walk on the days i have something going on after work. one of the benefits is seeing the sun rise behind the manhattan skyline (that beautiful photo above is from my walk this morning... #nofilter #whoops #jimmyandjustinaregonnamakefunofme)
when i walk out to the end of the pier and see that beautiful site i am so thankful that i made the leap of faith and moved out to this amazing metropolis, i smile, and i get inspired.
man it's good to be home.
